My Time On The Truck

My time on the truck was much different then the first go round thats for sure. 
I am older and not as cut out for it .. even tho it has only been a year and a half whewwww boy. 
We had a good time together and it was awesome to spend the time together. 
We laughed and just genuinely enjoyed the alone time even tho he was working. 
I got to check Connecticut off my list of states not visited on the previous go out time. 
I missed my girls and the grandbabies something fierce but it was good to have a break too. 

It was awesome to be in Salt Lake and get to see family!!!!!
I knew I missed them but you just never know how much until you see them again. 
We spent a couple of good nights with my brother and his family playing games and enjoying each others company! 
I cannot wait to get back out there to see everyone again.

Long Time No Update

Things are about the same .. Billy is still running with Cowan. 
Despite being angry about some things going on at the company which we all have little things we do not like about our job or the company we work for. 
He has been coming home quite frequently which has been nice. 

Still holding the fort down at home. 
Billy's nephew just went home after staying with us for a month. 
I am thankful that he is back home to be honest. 
He is a 14 year old kid that has been allowed to basically run wild and is always going and doing things and he was bored silly here at our house because we are home bodies that he was driving us all up a wall. There was talk about us getting custody in the event that his dad; billy's brother passed away which is inevitable but I think that has changed. Who knows really until the actual event happens. 

Tina is back home I guess for a few weeks. She says she has gotten her own apartment and she is just waiting on repairs to the apartment and to be able to pay the power deposit so we will see. 
She still owes us $130 for her car and car insurance and the insurance is about to be due again. So not sure what she is going to do. 

Destinee is pregnant and sick quite a bit so that is that. 

Off to clean my house and make a plan of attack for the day.

Missing him more

Billy came home this past weekend because he was out of hours and needed to do a reset. 
I picked him up in St Mary's Georgia which is right on the Georgia/Florida state line. 
We went out to eat at a really yummy BBQ place and then came home. 
We spent Sunday visiting his mom and running around looking at houses and what not. 
When I took him back to his truck on Monday morning we said our good bye's and he headed out .... before he was gone even 30 minutes the overwhelming missing him feeling sunk in ... It's getting harder and harder to be apart from  him lately. I think maybe because its been a year straight now that we have been apart really other than a few days here and there ... Part of me wants to get on the truck and go with him for a bit but I hate the truck life .. I really do ... 
What to do what to do?!

He loves his grandbabies

Today was Tru's 3rd birthday and this morning before any of us got up he had posted a sweet birthday video for her to Facebook. And then posted one a bit later for Levi. It was sweet and I think he was sad that he was missing out on today.

The life of a trucker ... missing events ...

Billy was just home this past Sunday and spent Easter with us and the grand babies. 
That was a rare occasion that he got to be home on a holiday and spend the day with us. 
Tomorrow Friday April 10th is Tru's 3rd birthday. 
We are taking her to the beach and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and I really think Billy is kinda bummed that he is missing all of that and not going to be  here. 
I can't even begin to imagine how hard it must be on him to miss all the special and fun events and memory making that goes on back here at home. 
I am forever grateful to him and thankful for all that he sacrifices for all us back here at home. 
He is an amazing man ... it took me 18  years to drag that man out of him but now that he is here I am more than blessed. 
I try to take lots of pictures and videos so I can share them with him and try to make him feel included as much as I can but I am sure that does not lessen the sting any bit at all. 

Been awhile ....

Been awhile since I updated here .... 

Billy is now an owner operator leased on to Cowan transportation. 
Right now we are just trying to figure things out and make this work again. 
The best thing about Cowan is they very supportive unlike CR England was. 
He stands to make some great money with this company once we can get all the kinks worked out and get things going the way they are supposed to. 

He has been able to come home more often then ever before so that has been nice. 
I miss him when he is gone and love it when he comes home. 
There are days I contemplate climbing back up in the truck with him but I don't want to go out for long periods so if I could go for just a week or so I would be  happy with that. 
I will try to update here more often.

Another New Beginning .....

Well after almost a year at Crete Transport the miles went into the toilet and quickly ... Billy has made the decision to try owner operator again. He is leasing to Cowan transportation. 
We will see how this goes ... crossing my fingers it turns out much better than CR England.
