It been a long 5 weeks since the last time Craig was at home.  We extended his stay out on the road, because his primary care physician was on vacation last week.  It's time for his annual DOT physical exam, and we all know how much fun those can be, especially when your livelihood is at stake if you don't pass. 

Craig is in great shape, but he does have the "white coat syndrome" when it comes to having his blood pressure taken.  At home it is a perfect 115/75, but take him to the doctor and have them take it.......well it goes sky high.  Just the thought of having to be seen by a different doctor, when I told him his doctor was on vacation during his normal scheduled time off, was enough to have him stay out an extra week.  I'll be happy when we get through the appointment and can relax.

In other trucking news, Craig and Justin got a run all the way to South Carolina last week.  It was suppose to be a great run, but they had issues with the ABS braking system on the trailer, and had to stop a couple of times to get it fixed.  Then, while going through dreaded Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, the air conditioning on the truck went out, but wouldn't you know it, as soon as they hit cooler weather, it started again.  Go figure.  They haven't had any issues with it since.

I'll be going to bed early tonight as I'll be heading into Spokane at 5am to pick up Craig after their delivery to a Fred Meyer Store early tomorrow morning.  I've already made some of his favorite things....baked spaghetti, a killer berry cobbler, and a tasty pasta salad.  All that's left to do is do a quick stop at Home Depot for a few things and we'll be enjoying four days together at home.  Now if only we didn't have that doctor appointment to deal with!
