Awhile back, Craig and I had discussed the possibility of him becoming a trainer, and had put in the paperwork to get the approval. The approval from all the departments was given and Craig was scheduled for a "train the trainer" class on Tuesday morning. With Craig in class, I took the opportunity to take the pick up and drive to Walla Walla to visit with one of my best friends. This of course meant that we would once again part ways.
We figured, with the possibility of Craig having a trainee a few times a year, we might as well get used to random separations, and I always love a reason to visit with my friend Cori. So after bidding a fond farewell to Craig Tuesday morning, I set off for Walla Walla. I have been spoiled and pampered the last couple of days while Craig has had to go back to work. Do I feel guilty?........Well, maybe just a little.
After the class on Tuesday, Craig waited until this morning to receive his dispatch to the Tyson Meat Plant in Wallula, WA. It will be a short run, just to Tacoma, WA and then most likely a run going south. The plan will be for me to head south too in a couple of days and spend a day or two with my Mom and then meet up with Craig at the French Camp yard. With me driving the pick up to California, this transition should be a piece of cake. Now let's hope I don't have to eat my words!
