As I write this, the truck is being jostled back and forth, as the produce is being off loaded from the trailer. Craig is up in his bunk trying to catch an hour or so of sleep. The last couple of days have really been a blur, starting with the marathon drive Sunday night. Craig used all of his driving hours to get us into Canyonville, OR, with the help of mass quantities of Diet Mt. Dew, and then the many stops for a bathroom break. He felt a bit jittery when we laid down to sleep, but he nodded off quickly.

With almost a solid 8 hours of sleep, we awoke to take showers and do laundry, before heading out again around 8pm last night. We stopped in Chehalis, WA at a WalMart, where I quickly did our next two weeks worth of grocery shopping, while Craig took a little cat nap. I gotta say, I love going to WalMart at 2:30am, and having the entire store to myself. The only draw back is maneuvering around the boxes scattered around the aisles as they restock the shelves.

From Chehalis, we only had a good hour to go before we arrived at the Fred Meyer DC in Puyallup. We were sent a pre plan load yesterday while we slept, which is going to require some creative thinking as to how it will all work out on paper, but as the previous entry indicated, Craig thinks he knows a way to make it work. A quick phone call in a few hours will confirm that and then it looks like we will be off to Spokane.

I'm hoping it does work out, as we have our new glasses that we ordered waiting for us at the WalMart, not to mention last pay period's check, which they mistakenly mailed to our home instead of directly depositing it into our account. If time permits, we will be making that run home for the check as well. Now I think it's time for me to crawl into bed for a little cat nap myself!
