Today was another food visit. My sister waited for me for nearly two hours in visitation. I had to bite my tongue when I was finally notified by fellow prisoners I had a visitor and learned she'd been kept waiting. She didn't seem too upset, so I let it go with only a condescending remark to the visitation officer "Hours of waiting....really?"
Due to short staffing, the second visitation room was not being used, so it was a packed visitation, inside and outside. We shared an indoor table with another guy and his parents. Despite the cramped conditions, it was a happy and great visit. My sister and I talked, joked, laughed and ate for nearly three hours straight. I did most of the eating. LOL
My sister's menu: Granola, chocolate granola bars, fresh strawberries & blueberries, dried cranberries, dark chocolate Kit Kats, two Whoppers, peaches, two pieces of cheesecake (Cheesecake Factory-a kind and generous gift) and two pieces of apple pie. My sister had a salad and nibbled at the rest. I shamelessly ate it all. LOL. It was great!
We also talked about the future and plans we have. We're both starting our lives again. Her daughter is now a Northern Arizona University freshman and her brother (me) gets out in 1 1/2 years. We're going to have fun and make a good life for ourselves.
