I got my visit today. my mother inlaw and sister inlaw were with me. We got signed in around 9am, and by 9:15, Michael was brought down. Oh, to feel his arms around me was AMAZING! We surprised him by bringing our sister inlaw...and he was thrilled by that. we talked, laughed, I fed him like he was never going to eat again! Seriously, I don't know where he put all the food...but it was nice to "bring him meals." he kept trying to get me to eat....lol I just wasn't hungry though. We got pictures taken with him. he smiled so beautifully for them. he usually barely smiles....but today he was actually in a really really good mood. Though it's a contact visit, we're only allowed contact really at the beginning and end of visits. we can't sit there and hold hands or hold each other. we have to sit across the table from one another. on our way to and from getting our pictures done, we got to hold hands. truthfully, I could have stood in front of the backdrop with him all day. lol we ended up staying until they kicked us out...at 5:30. Funny how I'm a smoker, and normally can't go more than 3 or 4 hours without some sort of nicotine....but I was perfectly fine without one while we were in there. (of course, the car ride back to the hotel was another story lol) They say home is where the heart is....well, my heart is with him--all the time. No tears today....i'll save them for tomorrow's visit! tomorrow, we'll be there 9-530 again, but from 1:30-5:30, I'll have alone time with him. We'll have a dinner date :) Today was such a good day :)

theatre and I are there already. I'm having a very berry tea with crackers, cheese and cherry tomatoes and she's having a joint with some beer and we're both on really comfy recliners on thick pile carpet. we need some help with the decor if anyone is around??
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
