The life of a truckers wife

Guess who called me again and said "come pick me up" Yep, Justin. Thats not exactly what he said, he said " drive up here (150 miles) and stay the night with me before I head out on this 3000 mile trip" So I arranged for Ian and Katie to watch Avery and I left. Once I arrived Justin informed me that his truck is back in the shop because the clutch is still slipping, let's go to Walmart and buy some food for the truck and when we get back the truck should be ready. ( we are sleeping in the truck). We get back and the mechanics say take it to Freightliner and we will put you in a hotel room for the night. So they paid for a really nice room it had a living room seperate from the bedroom. We had breakfast for free in the morning then went to find out whats wrong with the truck. To make an even longer story short Justin is back home with me until Friday when he can pick up a load going to Minnesota, and they found nothing wrong with the clutch. He will just drive it until it breaks down. I cant even count how many times i made that trip and still have one more to go. We are seriously thinking about moving closer to the yard. I am so behind with my normal life routine. Im so happy I am going to church tonight. Im happy this year is almost over. Happy New Years Everyone!!!

Sorry to hear that you had to drive that long trip again but staying in the hotel alone sounds very nice. I'm glad you got to spend that time together.
That would be nice if you could move closer to the yard. When we lived in SC it took Russell 60-90 minutes to get to work depending on traffic. Now it takes him less than 10 minutes. It' makes a big difference.

Wow, what a sacrifce you make for your hubby! It would be hard to have him gone so much. Your little get away time with him sounds fun and romantic though!
