Lately, I have been feeling so defeated!  I have been home for a while contemplating returning to the trucking indudtry.  Since I have been on the road so long, I don’t have a place of my own and have to stay with family.  To earn my keep, I keep the house clean, mopping, sweeping, vacuuming, washing dishes and occasionally washing clothes.  Needless to say, I feel like a “housewife”!  The only thing is, I have never been a housewife nor do I want to be a housewife!  Everyone goes out to work except one and he does absolutely nothing. 

When I get up in the morning, I open the curtains, rain or shine and turn on the music, thats pumped through the house, drink my coffee then get stsrted on the dishes.  This is my daily routine, but by the end of the night, the house looks as if I hadn’t done anything!  We have two little girls here that you would think the house had 15 kids here! 

I think I need to return to the road just to get some rest and get rid of these “dishpan hands”!!  I haven’t been able to concentrate enough to jot a few lines down on my book in weeks.  Well, all I can say is …Road, here I come!!  :/

  1. Girl, I can so relate. I am sorry that you and your contribution to the household seem to be disrespected.

    Joe and I have often wondered about drivers, such as yourself, that virtually LIVE in the truck they drive. Home would be that confining box. Now I totally understand your remark in a previous post about not being able to sleep in a regular bed.

    When you go back out how long do you stay before getting off the road?

    Maybe I’ll get to meet you out here somewhere.
