I didn't stay out too long on the truck before getting right back off again. I've been in Modesto, CA since Thursday morning, when Craig dropped me off on his way to LA. It's been fun having a few days here without a doctor appointment to go to with my Mom, but that will change starting today. Her first round of Chemo went pretty good, and we'll have a follow up appointment with that doctor this afternoon. Then on Wednesday a visit to the radiation doctor. That appointment will determine if I get back on the truck right away or stay a bit longer.
I spent the better part of yesterday taking pictures of one of my twin nieces, and then on the other niece's daughter Gwen (my grand niece) for her first Halloween pics. Of course we also had to carve some pumpkins. These don't even come close to the pumpkins I used to carve when I went all out for Halloween back when I lived in Modesto. I'll be passing out candy tonight and hoping to see a lot of cute little kids instead of the posse of adults that were out the last time I was here on Halloween.
Craig made his delivery in LA and was then dead headed all the way to Salinas, CA to Fresh Express to pick up a load yesterday afternoon. It'll be a short trip, as he only has to go to Woodburn, OR and the WinCo to deliver on Tuesday morning. With any luck, I'll be able to get back on the truck either on his way down or on he way back up later this week or weekend. Hope y'all have a "spooktacular" Halloween evening!
