lol - sorry. Went to visit my son and ended up staying 1 1/2 hours more than I planned because they had a level one lockdown drill.

We are very fortunate that we can visit 6-7 times/month so I usually try to figure out my time before I leave so I can tell our son.....oh well.

So...in the end...all I did today (on my day off) was drive....

Not so great about the drill, but you got extra time with your son. My husband is in Arizona, so I haven't seen him since the night before his arrest.... two and a half years ago. I was born and raised in the Southern tip of Illinois... down by Vienna and Shawnee. So, when he was arrested, I came running home to my mommy... lol. It was the only option in order to be there for Mr B like he needed me to.

I really hope some of the other Illinois members will jump in. It would be nice to get to know y'all.

Hi Illinois members... how are you today? It's beautiful in the southernmost tip today. Windows and doors are open and the smell from outside is amazing.

Is everyone ready for Easter? I am having Easter dinner with my mom and brother. We're having Ham, slaw and sweet potatoes. Not sure what else she is fixing.

Actually I'm just returning from a trip to WI Dells with my husband's high schoolers.

My husband lives in Alton, IL while I live near Peoria due to a job situation. So, tomorrow we are meeting extended family in Litchfield for Easter brunch than if there is time, I will stop by Taylorville and see our son.

I visited three times in 7 days last week because of work travels so he knows I may not visit tomorrow.

I'm sorry you can't visit often....however looks like the end is near for you guys. Our son has been in prison since 2013 and doesn't get out for several more years ugh.

We are finally near the end... I now have to pack up and head to Arizona. Not what I was hoping for. We tried for Interstate Compact, but that didn't work out. I love where I live in Southern Illinois. It's beautiful here... Lots of green.

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. My son is in Taylorville correctional facility. he has about two years remaining on his sentence. I miss so much, he is my only child and my best friend. Mothers Day was tough without him this year. I cry every day because I worry about him. He's never been in trouble before and he is very young. I pray for his safety and sanity on a daily basis. That is all for now, I'm glad I was able to find this forum. I know that I'm not alone.

Don't worry. Taylorville isn't bad at all. My fiancé just came home after spending 3 years there. Feel free to PM and if you have any questions about it there =) I can promise you that it's not as bad as it seems in movies, and of all the ones in IL, it's one of the tamest.
