My partner and I are MWI and he is already out, however if I could go back in time the only way my plans would change is probably prepare more job hunting wise. He was very proactive searching for one, it was just his felony made it hard for him as we both underestimated how hard it was going to be.

We are not sure how long J will be gone for. But my big goals are getting a new car (have had serious problems with my current one), and just continuing to live life and help him with overcoming his addiction! We will take it day by day, minute by minute and just work on his recovery!

We're planning romantic days n also a few moments to breathe after I take time off wrk to make a baby or two
Before he comes home I'm enjoying my last few days of being alone with our child

One cute idea I have is to throw him a surprise party but his date keeps changing so I mite jus save it for his birthday.....another is to make him go on a scavenger hunt to be more intimate & play pranks on him along the way all in good fun & adjusting to life after

He plans to enroll in college and we're going to continue to save towards opening our own business about a year after he gets home. Take a cruise just the two of us because we've never been and it'd be nice to just get some one-on-one time away from it all. He'll be home just in time for the holidays so the girls are excited because my husband loves to cook and they always go all out with baking and such on Christmas Eve and the girls are excited about getting that "with daddy" tradition back this year.

We have a lot of plans/goals just for everyday life and making it through when he gets home and we can only wait and see how those will pan out. I can't wait because to me it's better to go through challenges/hardships together than apart. I'll feel better just having him home. Less than 5 months to go.

I will be graduating from college soon and I plan on buying a house in a couple of years. I have no idea how long he will be gone, but I plan on getting everything set up for him. We were supposed to be going on a rode trip this summer, but obviously, that is not going to happen, so we will do that once he gets released. I am trying to get myself together physically, financially, and spiritually so that I can help him succeed.

Well I've BEEN making plans. He is to be released in 2017 but that does not include good time / HWH or RDAP. So first thing was buy us a house, which I did that LAST year- Feb 2014 will be two years I've been in OUR house. My plans for Jan 2014 are to start stocking his side of our closet with brand new clothes/ shoes- everything for him. By 2015 my car should be paid off and I'm going to get us a third vehicle possibly a family vehicle like an escalade or something like that. He still has his truck that he had before he got locked up. Its been paid off and still runs great so he can use that as a work truck. Once he is released to HWH he is going to work with his bro who owns his own business, then eventually by the time he is done with HWH he will have decided what trade he wants to pursue. Either HVAC or Welding which he has experience with both. Either trade he will eventually branch out on his own and start his own company. THEN I quit my job and he support me and our babies......the END! lol

I have 5 months left and I am overwhelmed. He needs clothes before anything so I am buying those. I have some trips planned but most of all we will be focused on getting him stable and planning our wedding and our honeymoon at a Sandals resort in Negril, Jamaica.

He will be home in 59 more days!! We are planning on not much right now. Just taking things day by day. But the first night home we are just going to stay home and enjoy each other. I have got to get him some basic things before he gets home. Other than that just have to prepare for him to come home. Want to make sure that I get a few projects done like finish painting the living room. We are obviously going to work on the job thing and such for him. He is going to be moving in here with me and my son. We cant wait! I am just so excited. I started revamping my panty and bra collection along with sexy lingere to wear to bed...lol. Gotta make him realize what he has been missing...lol.

My sweetheart will be home this December. We're thinking that he'll parole out to his parents' house then move in with me that next month (January!), and I am so excited. I'm getting a new house, so he has never visited this new place. I will be sure to get him some new clothes in whatever size he is, and I'll be sure to have his favorite foods stocked up. We'll have an incredibly comfy bed, and even though he isn't staying at my place, I'll have everything he needs there. I love him to death, and I cannot wait to see him. Just writing about this gets me all excited.

Thumbs up

He wants to get his old job back,but that shouldn't be a problem as he was well liked by his boss. We will be getting married within 2 years of release,so saving money,spending time together,we'd like to get premarital counseling,and just sensibly preparing for the future. Him and i have been through alot but our commitment and bond is very strong. He is back in on a PV and we know many pitfalls to avoid this next go around. He's a good man. I look forward to a future with him,taking one day at a time and being thankful no matter what! Best of luck to those preparing for upcoming homecomings!

PS Speaking from experiencing one homecoming before,i think it's very very important to have definite plans in place. Not just to expect him to walk out that door and expect a cakewalk. That sounds simplistic,but many subconsciously feel that way,and the homecoming while wonderful (they are free),comes with a whole new set of stressors.These are grown men not children,so try not to nag at them if they don't act right all the time. Have boundaries in place but give them room to have bad days sometimes.

There's so much to do. My baby is coming home is January! First of all I'm been working on getting a second job so that I can take care of something and save money for him. I been looking for jobs for him. By the time he gets out my lease will be up so I'm planning on moving closer to him so I can see him all the time. I want to make sure he has clothing and necessities but I don't know how to do that because I don't know how big to get things. When he gets out, the day after that will be our 1 year anniversary!! So I wanted to do something romantic. I plan on taking a week vacation off work so that I can spend every moment with him during his first week off.

Currently I am trying to get the house finished built! He is taking classes that will transfer out when he gets to come home. This keeps him occupied. I cant help but t wonder about how things will be after the holidays.

We are planning on taking things step-by-step, one laugh and tear at a time... just staying in the moment. His sister and I are great friends and we are planning a huge, surprise coming home bash. I will pick him up, take him to do his few errands, go have lunch... he wants Panda Express, and then spend some time alone. Then we will go get his daughter and go to his sisters.

The next day is one long movie marathon.... we are going to stay in, snuggle and watch all the movies hes missed in the last 5 years. We have a list started!

Congrats! I'd be careful with a party that soon I might wait a couple weeks. They need time to get their bearings.

Just 15 months. I've already cleaned out his dresser drawers and started buying his underwear, socks and stuff. I have the music I'm going to blare as he walks out the door and into my arms! First thing to do.....get his hair cut. I hate that pony tail!!! lol.
