THE TIME HAS COME
I miss that lifestyle, the one I thought I would never live back in the day, and more than that, I miss being able to spend all that time with my best friend and husband Craig. But life is an ever changing entity, and you either adapt to those changes, or find yourself stuck fighting a battle that can never be won. I count my five years on the truck with Craig, as five of the most happiest years of our lives. The memories of those years, and the blogs entries that I wrote, fill five very large printed books that we have to enjoy at home.
I realize that the majority of the followers of this blog, have joined us on our trucking journey, and my hope is, for those that might have been interested in that lifestyle, that they were able to find some answers to their questions More importantly, that for all the negative, stereotypical descriptions of the men and women of trucking, that by reading this blog, you came to understand that they are the backbone of this great Nation, that they make sacrifices being separated from family, they miss out on holiday celebrations, and drive in horrendous weather conditions, to make sure you get everything you buy on a daily basis.
So it saddens me to close this trucking chapter on this blog, but I will continue it with what has become my second love.... " pickin' " and re purposing old furniture. The title will remain the same, but the background and sidebars will change in the coming weeks. For those of you who enjoy that type of thing, I'll be thrilled to have you along on my latest journey of "before and afters". For those whose interest lie in the trucking world and will move along, I thank you for coming along with us on our journey, through the good times and bad, from border to border and coast to coast, it was a helluva ride and we enjoyed the company along the way.
