Sorry that it’s been a while since my last post, have been pretty busy. I’m sure you all knew how much I loved my job as a truck driver, but it has come to an end. I really loved it more than any job I had ever had, but I was really missing my kids & girlfriend. I had missed all my 13 year old daughter’s softball games over the past two years & my son is fixing to be four & he will soon be getting into stuff. It has been really hard weighing the love for my job against missing everybody.
Back in 06-09 I was a dispatcher for a local trucking company & about 4 weeks ago they asked me to come back. I took a little bit of a pay cut, but just couldn’t pass up the hours (7-5 Monday-Friday), yep I’m now home every night & every single weekend. Damn, it sure feels good as opposed to only being home 4 days a month. My mom is really loving it….she hated that she couldn’t come over for cookouts whenever she could. I really do miss driving & seeing this beautiful country of ours, but nothing beats being home with family & friends all the time.
I am loving my new/old job….the company has really grown & it’s way more hectic with more drivers & keeps my busy & on my toes. Anyway, wanted to fill you all in & let you know that I’m still gonna write when I can, it just won’t much on trucking anymore. Gonna get back to writing about whatever I feel at the time. Might throw in some sports since I actually get to watch again. So glad that football has started back. Gonna leave you with one last shot of my truck when I turned it in (had it washed so it would be good to go for the next driver). Til next time peeps…
Ok, so I know that I am still pretty new to the trucking game & I freaking love it. But man, it sure has been hard being away from my family so much. Since April I have pretty much only been home 2-4 days a month. I brought my dad out with me a couple of weeks ago & have really been wanting to bring my wife (Krista) out with me. The reason dad went first is because she has been too scared (just didn’t want to be away from our 21-month old son Keegan) for so long. The girls have started back to school & Keegan is too young (he has to be 10). I have finally gotten her talked into it now & she is actually excited about it. I told work that she couldn’t be away from him more than a week so they are gonna work us back by then & I’m just gonna drop her off & head back out.
She has really only seen Florida & Louisiana so this should be really cool for her…she will get to see all kinds of things & places that she might not have ever had the chance to before. Pretty cool getting to take somebody with me from time to time & I couldn’t think of a better person than my sweet baby that I love with all my heart. She is one awesome human being & it makes me smile just to think about her. (smiling now). I deliver at 9:00 in the morning & then I think they will bring me home because I am pretty close. So, I will load her beautiful self up & we will probably head out on the road Friday or Saturday. So looking forward to it & maybe we will get some good stories & pictures for you all. Hopefully, I might even get to break this truck in right (wink wink)….lol. I dug up an old shot of us from about 5 years ago so you could see her. Til next time peeps…
