Hi LL...honestly, I think we are it for Baraga!

I am not a happy camper today. Nor was I yesterday for the most part. He calls and asks me to check on an order for some guy's art supplies and I say, "How am I going to check on that?" And he says, "Call. It is in my name." So confused and a bit irritated at not knowing the exact issues I say, "Huh? What? I don't understand. What is going on here? How is that possible." And he snipes back, "When I'm in the hole for telling..." I cut him off right there and said, "Shut up then. I don't want to hear it." So now I'm pissed because if you can't say what is going on for fear that your booty will get put in the hole then you shouldn't have been doing it to begin with. Is that so hard to understand? Is it really? I don't get that. So then my entire tone, attitude...everything...changed that entire minute, because now I'm pissed. When I was so happy to share the news that I had realized we have been talking for almost a year again (short story...we used to be married and were divorced/separated for 5 years this coming March and didn't reconnect until he went to jail) and haven't gotten so mad at one another that we hang up on one another or do any of that stupid ist that surrounded a lot of our prior interaction. So in my P.O'd tone I tell him, 'can you believe we've been talking for almost a year and we haven't hung up on one another?' Do you know what he says?! UGH... "Why? Do you want to hang up on me now?" You bet your skinny white arse I do now!!!!!!!!!!!! Why can't they be on the same page as us?! UGH..... So I paused for the longest moment and said, "No. Do you?" He says, "No, I have nothing to be mad about." No ist sherlock holmes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm the one mad and I can't even spout off because some jerk-off is listening in on me! Then he says, "I guess I should just stop helping people out because every time I do I come off like the a-hole." I told him he was right and maybe he should stop helping everyone else. GD...help yourself! UGH...So he tells me he will call me later to find out what I found out when I called this place. Well...that was 23.5 hours ago!

He told me he tracks my cycles...well, apparently he didn't track this month because he would have known this isn't the week to f with me!

Okay, now I feel better! I'm sorry. I just had to vent.

LL, I'm sorry about your cat. That is never easy losing a pet. That just sucks. I'm also sorry you weren't having a good day yesterday. I'm sure this weather doesn't help either...I'm so tired of the cold and the snow and all of the BS that comes with January/February in this horrible state! UGH... I hope you feel better today and have a much better day. And if you aren't productive...that is okay. You are on vacation!

Take care of you today. Hugs....

Hi
Ok J, you had me cracking up on some of your comments......sorry, but you sound like me at times. Yea its hard to understand why they just dont get it sometimes and they say we dont.....

I did have a better day today, got my pay check and did some grocery shopping and some house cleaning and your right if I am unproductive I am on vacation.......
Besides it will still be waiting for me when I decide to get to it, since I cant seem to find anyone else to do it....

The weather doesnt help my mood at all, I still think I have that seasonal depression thing going on, I can feel it come on when the weather starts getting cold and dark early. UGH!
I can not wait for spring to get here!


LL

Thanks LL...I think everyone this year has that seasonal disorder with as much snow as we've gotten. UGH...

Yeah, I'm just irritated with the whole darn thing. And of course he wouldn't call today...that would make my life too simple!

I'm glad that today was a better day for you. Girl, that is productive!! You did more today than I ever try to do in a whole day. LMAO

I have tomorrow off to work on homework, which I need to do! Enjoy your Friday! Take care y'all!

Well, well, well....no call again so far. I'm assuming this is my "punishment"!?! In my mind...it is saving me $1.91 a day. Not really, but you all know what I mean. This is the only place/time that I've thought no news is not good news. I hate MDOC!!! Hopefully he remembered that I'm taking the munchkin up to see Elmo today so I can't take calls...we will see. He will probably call then. LOL If so, it sucks to be him!

I hope the rest of my Baraga thread has a wonderful Saturday today! Take care y'all!!

Default Happy Sunday!

It sure is cold and windy here. I heard from Matt yesterday but he seems distant too......men........probably just down.....i know I am......I hate this weather and it wouldnt hurt my feelings one bit if it were spring tomorrow.
Back to work tomorrow, wonder how long it will be for this time. Rumor has it they want to do the week off once a month....interesting.
Well I guess if it helps and keeps us going, then so be it.
I'm sure Matt will call later before the superbowl, I know I wont hear from him after football starts thats for sure. Oh well give him something fun and exciting to watch on TV.


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Default Hi

Wow didnt realize it had been that many days since I was here and posted, hope all is well.
Weather is warmer today, but really windy.
Talked with Matt Thursday and a bunch more guys came in last week and they are crowded now, every bed full and then some from what it sounds.
Says its even harder to get a phone now, the last few calls he has made to me have been from outside in the yard....brrrr so we didnt talk long.


Have a great weekend.


LL

JLZ took a break from PTO for awhile. She is actually up at Baraga right now visiting her husband. She left yesterday morning and was able to see him last night. I think she's staying for a couple of days.

Thats cool, glad she was able to make it for a visit! I am going to head up that way myself once the weather gets better....now would be a perfect time since I am laid off next week, but other things are not fitting into the equation so well soooo, I will get there soon.


Thanks tballa, I just hadnt seen her on in awhile and was hoping all was ok with her.

My son is in Baraga Max Level 1, yes he says its small and the food sucks. Visitation is good for me because I live in the UP. Level 1 visits are Tue-Sunday 4pm til 8:30pm and longer on Holidays. They do have good store if they got money. The level 5 is really a Max. Them dudes are locked down 23hrs a day. Level 1 is a cake walk compaired to Level 5. Hope this helps ya

But they are having awesome deals right now on the Curve and Pearl after the mail in rebate my pearl will only cost $19.99. His was a little more will be $79.00 after rebate but that still is an awesome price for Blackberries.
I have found some really cool ringtones for it. So its been fun tonight.
I am expecting a call tomorrow night (Sun) since he called twice last night. We had a really good time on the phone Friday night I love when we can share some laughs, makes it all worth while. They had a cook up Friday night, he liked doing that, we used to have them out here, Very fattening but OH so good!
Sounds like you had a fun day waxing and facial, relaxing. Wish I lived closer and I would have met you ladies for breakfast.
I used to meet some ladies from PTO and go for dinner when they would come to Pugsley my ex and their boyfriends were there and it was only about 45 mins from me, we always had a good time going out for dinner and visiting.
I also carpooled with a lady from PTO when my ex was in Kinross. Its nice to find someone to talk with that knows what we all go through ya know....
We always had a good time.

Well I took a nap when I got home last night because I had such a headache, now I am wide awake. Oh well I can sleep in tomorrow and have all next week off, since our plant is laying people off for a week. Would much rather not have time off now, since there is nothing to do, weather so cold.....but what can ya do. Nada.

Check in tomorrow

LL

Alright, I just discovered this site & have no idea how to post a thread? Im a bit confused. Anyways, my boyfriend/ ex is locked up in Baraga; he was in Menominee jail for a year, than to Jackson, now at Baraga.
I havent been there yet, & I am use to visiting him at a jail. I was wondering if someone could update me on how to set up a visit, how much in advance to set it up, what to expect, & anyhting else I need to know so i can be prepared to go visit.
Thank you so much. Please reply.

There is a thread titled "visitation" that would have answers for you, you need to fill out and turn in a visitor application before you can visit...

Default Nice to meetcha

Hey there!
Son was to be transferred from Kitwen to Baraga Level 1 today. Hubby and I live in southwest MI. Just wanted to say HELLO and it's nice to meet you all. Let's hope this works out for the guys. I just visited our son Saturday at Kitwen. Several of the COs said they were going over to Baraga when Kitwen is closed. The COs at Kitwen were very polite and respectful toward us and our son. I guess a couple of us will be learning from the others what's happening up there. It's nice to know we have others with whom we can share our concerns.

Peace to all ~~~
Mary

This has been a pretty abandoned thread however I was in Baraga and can tell you some things about it. Baraga level I is a camp like place down from the level V.

The food is horrible, and it was crowded in 2006 when I was there so I shudder for them men there now. There is an Officer ther named Massey however I never had any issues with him, he does like to get on the loud speaker, however so do most officers in camp like facilities.

There was two 2nd shift officers there that were great, however who knows this 2010 if they are Massey are still there. Theft was not too much of an issue there when I was there, there was adequate "self policing" going on.

Now they did when I was there tend to have fould ARUS's and RUM's. However the ADW their was very nice. She helped me get downstate when my Mom got really ill. She was a real help and I admit she helped me. There is a yard at the facility, however honestly the dimensions are maybe 50 feet deep by 200 feet long, and in this area there is a track around the edge, vollyball court, basketball court and weight pit. Leaving virtually no room for getting away from people.

That was my huge hang up at baraga, there was no way to "be alone" have a moment to decompress etc...

I see wills12 was at Baraga in 2006. If you are still around what wing were you in. I see you didnt like Massey lol.... What about Loons (you know who he is) and Dembrowski, both very cool officers.

I have to name them here as we never talk about the good ones in the MDOC. Thise two officers are or were when I was in two good ones.

we went up thee to visit our son and nothing has changed. We were treat well by staff. He has been there so long. It's still overcrowded. Too far for us and a lonely place to be. I don't understand why they have to stay so many years. He is level 1.
