        Everyday I have the same routine, I get up at 4:45 or 5:00 in the morning, go to the bathroom and clean up before heading out at 5:30 to work. My hours are 6 to 2 p.m., but sometimes I am there until about 3. I return home after a 20 minute drive and walk into the house with little children running around and screaming.  After a hard day, that is the last thing I need to be hearing! It really sucks!!!  

        Back in December 2013, I said ‘goodbye’ to a job I really enjoyed so I could spend more time with my family, especially my granddaughters.  Now that I have been here for 6 months, I am not happy or satisfied.  Everyone is getting on my nerves and I am feeling like it is time for me to go.  Visions of the road are on my mind everyday.  I find myself in places I’ve traveled through when I was out there.  Even though, I’ve said the biggest thing about the road I didn’t like is using so many different bathrooms, I still want to go back.  I am happiest out there! I’ve been sitting around way too much! I have tried to work 2 jobs to take my mind off of being out there but I still feel like I have to go!  

I love my grandbabies more than life but Gramma gotta go! I’m sleeping too much, watching too much TV, eating way too much, and twiddling my thumbs a lot; if those are not reasons to hit the highway, nothing is!!  Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, too, but staying around here is DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!  

So needless to say, I am looking for another driving job, something that will bring me home on the weekends, maybe. Seriously though, I think I was born to ride the highways and byways, keeping the truck moving, stopping by home every couple of weeks to say ‘hi’.  I will get rid of all the things I put in storage and return to the road until I can’t do it anymore.    

As we truckers say, “Whoop whoop, trukkin up!”

The Kiss

wpid-images-71.jpegHave you ever been kissed so good that you can still feel it? You know, the kiss that you feel from you head to your toes. The kiss that makes you go limp. The kiss that makes you feel like there is no one else in the world by the two of you. The kiss that warms your soul. The kiss that makes you fall in love with him. The kiss that lingers on your lips long after it’s over. The kiss that makes other kisses seem like a peck. The kiss that is so deep, you don’t want to let go.

When it’s over and he is gone, your mind replays the kiss over and over again. You wonder when you will see him again and if he will take you away, with a kiss! Oh, that kiss!
