Yes, those guys were paroled. You may be thinking of when they had a moratorium on parole but that was lifted after a time.

Heyyy ladies
I know its been awhile but we have just been sooo busy! The weather is getting nicer and who wants to sit inside?! Just an update -- we are doing GREAT! Today is actually our 1 month "married" anniversary. The wedding went off without a hitch, just something small at the JP and then a little reception dinner with about 50 people. Married life isnt much different.. in a sense it makes everything better

How is everyone doing? I hope all is well in Pa!! I will try and make an effort to stop by more often.. LOVE YOU LADIES .. and Bobble Hahahahaha

Hi ladies, sorry it's been so long since I've posted, it looks as though the posts are dying down here in the Keystone State Lounge! I'm hoping all of you are doing well and please know what you ALL are in my thoughts and prayers daily!! I hope life is treating all of you well and everything is going as smoothly as possible!!

Just a little update, we're currently waiting to hear about the transfer request to SC that my hubby submitted. We're hoping they'll go to inspect the house in Myrtle Beach sometime this month, but considering the system is SLOW we aren't holding our breath lol. As soon as we get the OK to move we'll be relocating to Myrtle Beach SC! We're keeping our fingers crossed it gets approved soon so please say a prayer for us! Hubby has been working full time ever since he came home, and overtime whenever his employer offers it up! Our son will turn a year old next month, it's hard to believe it's been almost a year since we welcomed him into the world!! Things have been AMAZING.....our relationship has gotten stronger throughout our whole DOC experience and I think we fell even MORE in love while he was away lol. We want to expand our family within the next year or so, we're planning on trying to have another baby just as soon as we get settled in SC. I'll check in again soon, I promise to stop by more often and say hello! Love you ladies!!!

Hey ms!!!! I haven't been on here very much lately but I am glad someone is still hanging around! LOL!!! You can count on me to keep things going. I have noticed alot of new names around too which is good? I guess us long timers are on our own! Just joking!
Things are the same here. Kids, work, and a few planned trips out of town for concerts. I have decided that this summer I am doing some fun stuff for myself for once! It's about time right?
Hope everyone is doing okay. And ms I so hope they aren't going to start letting us order sneakers and stuff for our guys because honestly? I can't afford it. That would really suck for me having to say no to him but it's not like it's been the first time I have had to remind him that I got responsibilities out here! :-)

I told him nope because we are trying to save and that's hard as it is with me going to seeing him once a month and calls UGHH DON'T GET ME STARTED!!!

BUT WOOT WOOT WOOT i am really happy to see you planning a FUN Summer, I am also trying to do the same as well as stay LOW BUDGET let's see how far that takes me... =] GLAD TO HEAR FROM YOU.....PLEASE DO NOT BE A STRANGER...I REALLY enjoy chatting it up on here.....

My man is already excited. Thing is I don't spend money except on those 2 pkgs a year and visits every couple of months. that's all I can afford. He is going to have to send the money off his books or order himself if that's an option. I'll be honest, I liked that they couldn't order all like that because I knew the cost involved talking to women from states that do allow it and I was relieved that I wasn't dealing with that on top of everything else.
Low cost summer fun is what I am doing too. the trips I am taking are in areas where I can stay with friends and not have to worry about hotel costs. I am making a 2 day trip at the end of July to see him by myself for the first time ever. Our daughter or his mom is always there too but his mom is takling her on a big vacation so I am free to go alone. I am sooo excited I can't stand it!!! :-) Definately going to be checking in since I know you are still hanging around. Where are all our other ladies at???

Hi ladies....Kare, Ms....I'm still around, didn't forget about you guys just MAD BUSY with trying to get things around to move to SC, our son's FIRST birthday (yay), and various other things. I know I promised to check in more often but now that our son is walking....well....all I do all day long is chase his butt around and by the time I get a chance to sit down at night I'm beat and fall asleep soon after he does lol! Hubby is doing well, working as much as he can, and behaving himself. We're extremely happy to be moving!! Our countdown now is to see him come off Parole (2 years). I know I shouldn't be complaining because we have him home with us but honestly Parole is a huge pain in the butt!! My hubby is a model Parolee, never getting in trouble or giving them a problem, but it's like pulling teeth to get permission to do something simple like take a weekend vacation to the beach.....oh well guess I shouldn't get too stressed about it. I hope all is well with you ladies......and you're hanging in there best you can! I'll check in again when I get another free moment............take care ladies!

Default Helloooo:) Checking In

Hey ladies... I haven't been on for a while, but things are well here. I've switched jobs making more money, and started school, which has been keeping me pretty busy. Work, school and the kids is about all the time that I have in the day Marcus is due to be home in Sept, thanks to the RRRI program. We're still a little unsure of how it all works, but the CO's and his counselor have told him that he's "short term" and that he'll be going home in Sept. I'm excited, anxious, and scared all at the same time. There was a period where I was fighting with him all the time!!! Not sure what that was all about. I'm glad to hear that we are all doing so well and that we continue to be blessed. I hope that this summer is keeping everyone safe and sound.

God bless and know that you and your men are always in my thoughts and prayers <3

Road Trip!

Yup, the Prison Society is off to Green Rock to see how things are going down there. We leave late Friday so that we can spend all day Saturday at the facitlity. We are meeting with staff and then with inmates.

It's 370 miles each way and I volunteered to drive ... What was I thinking?
