Talked to Doris at 10:15 AM: Doris is well and she is staying indoors as the weather is cold and foggy in the Bay Area. The dogs are well and are keeping warm too. She missed the visitation with me today. I told her not to worry about it, as she has to depend on others to drive her. She did not sleep well last night, insomnia. She will work on her Valentine’s Inventory. I told her I would catch up on my class reports, Spanish lessons and read the Spanish phrase book form Karlee. Showered at 11:00 AM and changed to BOP uniform. The computer room was locked down because the CO found some contraband. So probably no email for Today, hopefully the lockdown does not last too long. Went to the library to work on my Spanish Lessons. Back to the unit at 3:20 PM. Census count at 3:30 PM. Dinner was served after the count.
