Couple Things To Announce

Alex has been granted work release. That means he goes to work during the day and reports back to jail each night. He begins back to work on Monday. When we talk to him on the phone he sounds very healthy.

The other announcement is that Dad and Mom are going to grandparents again. Alex and Kristy are going to have a baby. It is due August 18 and we are all excited.

Congratulations on the new grandbaby that's on the way...babies are such a blessing!

That's good news on Alex too! Here in Texas, when they make trustee the start getting 2 for 1 on time served and if they're able to get road crew they go to 3 to 1 time served...will Alex get anything like this?

Congratulations on both notes. Motherhood saved me in so many ways. I had already been through the recovery process when I got clean, but he is defintely the number one reason to stay clean! Not to mention...I am too busy to even THINK about using. A baby is a blessing on so many levels.

That's excellent, on both counts.

Thanks for the messages you left; comments mean a lot to me especially from you. I know you have a lot of stress of you own so I'm flattered you had time to come to mine, considering my situation :-)

PS I went a bit crazy, I'm far better now than I was
