After leaving the company yard in Bloomington, CA on Thursday with his load of bananas, Craig made his way to French Camp for the night. Then on Friday he drove to Halsey, OR and stayed at the Pioneer Truck Stop, leaving him just under 100 miles to drive on Saturday for his 5am delivery in Clackamas. Upon going empty, he was directed to dead head 150 miles to the Fred Meyer DC in Puyallup, WA where at 9pm he hooked up to a loaded trailer for an overnight run to Spokane and a 7am delivery.While he was sitting idle awaiting that 9pm load, I was spending the day with my BFF Cori at the Farm Chicks Show in Spokane. There we enjoyed a day filled with wonderful junk finds and treasures. A few even made it home with Cori. I stuck to just buying some great home made peanut brittle as a treat for Craig when he came home, although, if truth be known, and I had an abundance of money and space in my home, I would have taken a few items out the door myself.As Craig finally left Puyallup for Spokane, I had managed to do some grocery shopping and stock the house and fall into bed to get some sleep. Around 5am I was up and getting ready to head into Spokane to pick Craig up after his delivery. I was one happy girl when I saw him pull into the yard and drop his empty trailer. As happy as I was to see him, I wasn't so happy to see the dirty laundry bag. But I'll take the good with the bad if it means spending a few days at home with Craig. Our plan is to enjoy some home time and not go back out on the road again until Thursday. We'll call in on Wednesday to make sure the requested work was completed on the truck and to ensure we have a load assignment for sometime Thursday. Til then, you'll find us enjoying some well deserved time at home together doing absolutely nothing........that is until it's time to tackle that darn laundry bag!
