Got My Baby Back, Baby Back - Home!

Yes folks! That's right, he is sittin' next to me. Far cry from my last post right? Yeah, well, turns out the company lied to him. They told him they had a solo driving position available, and then when they got to the school, he was told he had to do the owner/operator, meaning, BUY a truck, and run his OWN BUSINESS, or he would have to drive teams. Some of you are saying, "What's wrong with that?" Well, have you every stayed in a place the size of a bathroom with someone for MONTHS on end? Not cool. Plus, he wouldn't be able to come home as often.

So... he decided to come home. But we are broke folk, of course, so I decided to leave and go get him. From here in Alabama, to Dallas, it took me 11 hours. I am GOOD right? That's right. No, but yay! I got him home. He's not allowed to leave again. Turns out he can't do any other companies, because he didn't finish this school. Figures. So we are looking. He's happy to be home. We just got back…

The Bored Housewife, and Other Things In Life

Amazingly enough, I've become the housewife. Only, I am not the typical housewife. I don't have kids, and my husband isn't at home to take care of anymore. Which....I can say, I really don't know what to do. I am going out of my mind, and he's only been gone four three days. I miss him, but that's not it totally. The fact that I don't have that face to face contact with him, and the only people I see aside from when I go to church are my in-laws, makes things difficult. I am bored out of my freaking MIND. I play my games, and I clean up after myself, and dust and vaccuum, and play with the dogs. But, I mean, I am going nowhere. School doesn't start for a freaking MONTH, and then it's only two classes. I don't know when I'll see Aaron again, especially with what's going on at the school now. I feel....LOST. Like I don't know where I am going or what I am doing. Maybe it's just a bad day? I don't know. I want to start volunteer…

Howdy To Those Who Really Care

So, while on the phone with my Huckleberry, I found out that someone is printing off my blog and passing it around the company we used to work at. HOW FUNNY! So, to those of you who are doing so...SAY HI!!!!!!!!!!! I am soooo proud that someone thinks that we are so interesting that they pass my blog out. Or maybe I am overestimating myself....Who knows.

Huck is in Dallas. Yay for him! His CDL test is Wednesday, and then the week after that is his road test in the BIG truck. Then from there he should be going on the road. So we are jazzed. I HATE being away from him.

I did soooo good last night when I dropped him off. I dropped him off, teared up a little bit, and then turned around and left without looking back. I was accosted by a middle aged lady who asked if he was a truck driver, and I said, "He is now." I was still a little teary-eyed, but she talked to me and told me it will get better. I BROKE DOWN last night after I had a panic attack at home, but after talking to Huc…

Last Days, Tomorrow - A New Chapter

So today Huck and I spent the day together. First we dropped off his uniforms at work - POO TO THEM! - and then we just kinda hung out. We checked out the Harley shop in Anniston, and then went to an antique store, just your basic window shopping. I am soooo going to miss him. Our "uncle"/friend is also leaving Monday for his new job. He's been staying with us since January. So that's good. I've been trying not to think of how much I am going to miss Huck. I figure I can deal with it later. I don't want to make him think twice. I know he is going to have a hard time without me too. Especially considering the fact that we are much closer than normal married couples. SOOOOO....I am making him a special box to take with him, that he won't be able to open until he misses me so bad he can't stand it. THEN he can open it. What's in it? I dunno what I'll put in it yet. We'll see. So, tonight he'll have a good dinner, and tomorrow, and then to…

A New Journey - The Wife of a Trucker

Effective today, my sweety hubby quit his job at the waste company, and is now starting a new job as an over the road trucker. Lot lizards beware. This man is mine. But seriously. He had given the company time to train a new person, and they started screwing him around. So he quit. He leaves Saturday (SO SOON!) to head to Dallas by bus and start training. Sigh. No idea when he will be home. On the up side as well, Mom and Pop (his parents) may have found an apartment, and Mom may have found a job. YAY! I still start school in June, and I can't wait. Going to spend time with my sexy man now...
