MamaB, thanks for your concern and guidance. You had commented to me several times previously on the Prison Talk forum and I'm glad you are following this blog. I also understand from my mom that you have helped her a great deal. I truly appreciate that. This situation that I have put myself and my family in is overwhelming and I assume that you are in the same boat. I wish the best for you and your family....to respond to your next comment, I haven't seen the library cart yet, but there have been enough books floating around in the cell that I haven't lacked reading material yet.
Maria, thanks for following along and thanks for your prayers. I look forward to hearing from you again soon. If there is anything you'd like to know please feel free to ask.
Eddie, did Martha Stewart even get out of the pen yet? I could have sworn I saw her
knitting a sweater in the cell next to mine yesterday.
Drajr1969, Thanks for the comments. I have quickly learned that here in county that the motto I need to follow is "treat others as you wish to be treated". The guards in here are really relaxed...maybe too relaxed. I know the guards in state prison will be much more harsh, but I do anticipate being able to fit in with the "normal" people. I'm not "inked" up, nor am I in a gang, nor do I desire to join a gang. I'll be as normal as possible. Thanks again for the reassurance.
Marc's Queen, than you for your compassion. From your username I assume you have a husband of boyfriend that is incarcerated? I hope my plight can somehow help you make the time go by faster. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Shane...have you seen Eddie lately? Good luck...I did receive your letter, but the stamps didn't make it. The guards must have removed them. When we receive the mail the guard will open the envelope, briefly look at what is inside and remove any staples, contraband or pornography. Then they dispose of the envelope. If I'm able to catch the guard's attention I can get him to tear off the return address. One suggestion for people who write me...it may be easier if you just type an email as if you are sending it to my normal email address, and then print it out. I realize letter writing nowadays is really archaic. Maybe the email route would be easier. Also, if you actually send the email, it will allow me to have a file log of them that were sent once I get out of here. If anyone has any easier ideas please let me know.
