We usually talk for 2 to 2.5 hours Monday thru Friday.
We talk up to 10 more hours on the weekends.

Emails definitely slow down because there's not as much to say but as someone else said, you should keep writing each other because its a different form of communication that is important. Writing is what made us fall so hard for each other and how we were able to get to know each other so intimately. Don't want to lose that!

So In addition to talking for 20-22 hrs a week I write him two emails per week and he does the same for me (because he knows I like it). I'll send him a letter in the mail every month or two only because the state he is in photocopies all the incoming mail and shred the originals. So it can't smell like me or be a card or anything.

We talk on the phone every day, for over an hour when we can afford it, and we write letters almost every day. We are both perpetually behind on answering letters and we have a sizable stack of them. I don't know exactly how that happened, but we never manage to get caught up.

Hola chica's of PTO, and gents... Good evening.

Some of mi amiga's say (jokingly!) You two just talk so much, way too much! LOL pero ...(but) then again how can it be "way too much right?"
Not if you're on a serious level/and or getting closer each per call and that's us, for a while now and mi amigo's and female friends males all support, so it's all bien!(good) and mi bebecito, he write me all of the time, as i m 1 of those women who happily can say that i NEVER have to wonder/sit around waitin' on his weekly correo(mail) and i personally love his CONSISTENCY....
It always comes to me at mi casa, week-by-week... He is wonderful so far and i love each part of what has/is continually happening between us all year..." I am LOL as i write this tonight, because i am on the fone with him right now, and he is agreeing to EACH word i just read back to him, saying, "That's right, sweetness...." He is "addicted he says to such a "rare"mujer(woman) and he laughing, right now as i type this, saying:

"Sometimes, i blow up, stuff your mailbox(meaning so much mail at once) lmfao ... I am tonight, tt mi bebe, right now. He call me, alot pero ...(but) we are able to deal with it+ enjoy our time G2K each other for almost a year already.(it'll be nine months soon in early part of Sept... He don't even write his own bio-familia, nunca(never) and or quite limited, maybe 1x every few months since he was back in jail and sure don't call me like that. Only me for all year, and i pass msgs., (a few x month) "As needed"to his sister(s) or brothers, etc., we talk alot. since day uno...(1) + we love it. so i vote for: Frequent-phone calls and right on time, is always O.T.(on time)and i love that, soooo much + the calls are always usually on time, ( he can't, if in IL, his facility be lockin' down mucho, under-staff so much at the county jail he in, for a while now, it's even talked about in the Illinois newspapers on "way too short of staff" he say this, about his county he is in, and hopefully any day now this year leaving soon.
( but he call me early morning/afternoon and or evening) IF they are not locked down again (and afternoon)soon as they are out.

Most we have talked in 1 day
es 9 to 10 x. I love it...He does too! Have a great night PTO'ers...Adios...
#TAAS (there are always signs,so DON'T ignore them)
Lead with your
+ not your heart.

Since 2 weeks in of Jpaying each other, we've been swapping between 1-3 emails a day and now that I finally have an affordable number sorted for him to call on, he calls me every morning too! That might sound a little excessive, but well, I guess he has time on his hands and on the rare day that I don't hear from him at all, I miss him like crazy!!

We talk every day there isn’t a lockdown. He gets one 2O min call a day at this facility. I miss the old facility where we could talk an hour or more! He can’t email anymore since they took away the tablets. He writes me love letters because I like mail! And I Jpay him every week day (I have missed only 2 days in the last 10 months) and post one letter a week. Days are VERY long when he can’t call me!!

We talk everyday twice sometimes three times a day. We send at least one letter a week and I visit every other Saturday since it's a 2 hour there and back. I try to talk to him we much as I can to make time go by faster.

Every single day(: I’m fortunate to say that! We message each other through JPay multiple times a day, and he calls everyday, or if they are locked down, he’ll message me letting me know what’s up. So the communication between us is amazing. Sometimes, when he knows I’m not having a good day, he’ll have a buddy call me to check on me (he’s in close custody so he’s locked up 22 hours a day).

It's gone from 2 letters (2 one both parts, so 2 from me, 2 from him) a month to 2 phone calls a week, 4-7 emails a week (on both parts), and 4+ letters a month (more on my part). Soon we're adding video visits. That'll probably only be once or twice a month though, those things ain't cheap lol
