In less than seven months, I will be a free man. The day is getting near when I'll walk out of these gates and sigh a sigh of relief that its over and I'm on my way home. Home, where I'll walk around barefoot on my carpet. No more concrete floors beneath cheap flip flops. Home, where I watch what I want to watch on my tv. Home, where I can eat anything I choose at any time. Home, where I can pick up my phone and talk to my friends and family at any reasonable hour. Home, where I can feed birds in My yard, rather than sweat in the barren recreation yard waiting 2 hours to get off of it and into dorm. Yeah, I'm getting anxious to go home and live my life.
That is unless I make it home and there's somebody special waiting for me. Because let's face the fact guys...if you've got a woman you love in your life, she runs the show and simply lets you think you're in charge. LOL. I'm totally cool with that though. To be honest, I need some supervision when I get out, while I re acclimate myself with freedom. Until I'm back in the groove of society, I'll just act like I know where I'm going, what I'm doing and that I'm in charge. Hopefully my sweetheart will take pity on me and try to keep me near. However, my sister, niece and best bud Tony and his family will need to truly teach us and keep us both near. I'm certain they'll all be just a call away and ready to help. Everybody keep in mind that I'll have been in prison for nearly 10 years, so no laughing at me getting lost, being unable to work certain electronics/phones/pcs/etc, or things like that and don't be surprised if my woman, Ms. L, and I need your help often. Ms. L is a lot like me and you all know me...I'll try to do it, then ask how if I can't figure it out. No worries though...It's 100% legal for me, including driver's license, insurance and every other little rule and regulation. I won't take my shortcuts that'll jeopardize my freedom or loosing my wonderful woman. Although she's a fan of my blog, she's even more a fan of me, so I must leave her only as Ms. L, until she chooses to introduce herself. Unfortunately for you readers, she loves her privacy and I love her, so you'll have to wait and see. (Shhh...in time I'll have her joining in with our communicating. She'll come to the dark side of the blog! LOL)
I'm not entirely sure what the plans are for my first couple of days out. I know for sure that immediately upon walking out the gates I want to see my big sis, the lovely Ms L and my best friend Tony. Who picks me up is still uncertain. No matter what, these three people I want to see the day I am released. I'd add my friend Sue to that list but she isn't from Arizona, but she did promise me a visit after I'm out and I promised her that I'd show her the beauty of Sedona and elsewhere in Arizona. I'm hoping that within a month or so after my release I'll have all of my closest friends here to visit.
Aside from that fact that I want to get on with my life and be a happy, successful and free man, I want to show all of my friends and family that I made it and with their support. I want that normalcy and everyday joe kind of life in rural America. With a wee bit of funky stuff and good times mixed in. You know...lava lamps in my new house will be a start and all of that nature, nearby creek and lakes to fish in and take relaxing walks. Yeah, I bought a house where some people retire to, but I'll be just starting out there.
Well, I'm counting down the days, and preparing. BTW, I submitted my release information packet last week. That's when it really hit me that I'm really going home soon.
