Rod Blagojevich's wife says the former Illinois governor is teaching Civil War history and learning to play the guitar while serving his prison sentence for corruption.

Patti Blagojevich also said in a Friday post on Facebook that the family's attorneys are working on an appeal. But she says there won't be any answers for at least six more months.

Friday is the one-year anniversary of the day Rod Blagojevich reported to a federal prison in Colorado to begin serving his 14-year sentence on corruption convictions.

Glenn Selig, a longtime spokesman for Rod Blagojevich, confirmed the posting was from Patti Blagojevich.

She says in the post that without the former governor his family is left with an "aching hole in our lives."
