Default Peace out smu-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're moving...we're FINALLY moving!!!!!! I just got off the phone with Officer Bye (she's awesome by the way) and here's how the conversation went:

Me: Hello?
OB: Is Jennifer there?
Me: This is she.
OB: This is Officer Bye from SMU-1 visitation.
Me: Oh, hi.
OB: Well...I was just calling to let you know you can't come visit this weekend.
Me: What?
OB: After tonight he won't be at SMU-1 anymore.
(Jenn mutes the phone and screams and jumps around lol)
Me: Do you know where he's going? Or can you not tell me that or...
OB: Well...
Me: Is he going to Tucson?
OB: Yeah.
Me: Great! Thank you so much for letting know!

So, we will be getting our very first contact visit THIS WEEKEND! I'm so excited I can barely type! And it's perfect timing, today his birthday...the Big 3-0...what a great birthday present!

Just to relay on the good news! Take care!!

Thanks all! Ever since I got that phone call, I've been walking around with the cheesiest smile. I am just so utterly happy right now, there's very little that could bring me down.

When the officer called and she told me I won't be visiting at SMU anymore, she sounded a little disappointed. I guess to an extent I am too, only in that the visitation officers there are so nice and Officer Bye was absolutely wonderful in keeping me updated on what was going on with him...she went out of her way to get things done for us. But goodbye window visits and goodbye crappy phones! Hopefully the officers at the next place are just as nice and accomodating.

I do have a question though. At our visit on Friday I asked him what phase he was. He said he was fairly certain he was a 3 but wasn't sure because he got a ticket a little over a month ago - not a major one, but he wasn't sure if that would affect his phase or not. I guess my question is, if I call down to the visitation office in Tucson, will they be able to tell me what his phase is or at least how long his visits are? This is all so nerve racking to me...for the last year it's been calling, making an appointment, get a confirmation number, and a two-hour visit.

Sorry if this all seems a little scatter brained and random, but I just keep thinking of more and more questions because I just want the first time to go as smoothly as possible!

Yes, Jenn, you can call down there and they will tell you what phase he is and when visitation is.

May all your smiles be the cheesy ones - they're the BEST kind!
Have a great visit!

Well, he made it to his destination...finally! However it turns out he's a phase 2 so we only get four hours on Friday and then rotating Saturday and Sundays...I'm not complaining, eight hours worth of contact visitation is better than a two hour visit behind glass ANYDAY!

So, I'm on my way down to Tucson tonight! You KNOW I'll let you all know how it went!

We've never had a contact visit. We met after he was already incarcerated. We've been together for a year and tomorrow will be my first time touching him...very excited!!!

Well, I'm in Tucson! I'm staying at just an okay hotel just down the road from the prison...I got off on the exit and my heart started beating really fast. So, I'm here now and I'm hoping the night flies by!

Sorry for the play by play all...I'm just so excited and this is my outlet!

Jenn,
Contact visits are the best! the fact that you can touch, hugh and kiss..... WOW! is just (no words) ........ Enjoy, enjoy, every single moment of it. Though I most admit that Good byes are not easy at all, the fact that you hand has to let go of his, it hurts. Rob and I used to count our wake ups starting on Wed's..... ENjoy girl, ENJOY and NEVER NEVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED. you never know for X or Y you may not see him the following weekend .... I tell you!

Thank you soooooooooooo much everybody! Arizona has the greatest bunch of people EVER!

Well, I was able to get a little sleep last night. I went to bed about 11, fell asleep before 11:30 probably and woke up about 4. My alarm is set for 5:30 but my body isn't going to let me sleep that extra hour, so I'm going to check PTO, my e-mail, and start getting ready!

We haven't been able to talk on the phone since he's been moved so he's not entirely sure I'm coming. Hopefully they don't have to pull his funky butt out of bed!

OH...MY...GOSH! It was ABSOLUTELY everything I hoped it would be and more! I was sitting there waiting for him, and when he walked in I stood up and started crying almost. He walked up, put his arms around me and gave me the most amazing kiss I've ever had...it made me weak in the knees! After that amazing hug and kiss, I grabbed his hand and only let it go when we played chess (which I suck at by the way:P) We walked around, talked, and just found myself staring at him...he looked so much better in the flesh than he did behind the glass! I cannot WAIT until tomorrow...feeling his arms around me and his hand in mine, was the best feeling ever!
