Michelle has brought it to my attention several times that I have not blogged about my home time or even coming home. I would love to say that it is because she tied me up and would not let me have access to the outside world, the truth is I just got lazy once I came home. I got home May 29th and was planning to be home until June 1st but my time has been extended because the woman I am teaming with was in Washington state waiting to get a load to New York. She has finally been routed my way but is coming from Washington so I should see her sometime between friday or saturday, sunday at the latest. Her name is Dana, she is 57, non-smoker and a christian. We have spoken a few times in the past week and we both are excited about meeting each other and working together. I am so glad that I will be with someone older. It will be a nice change after being around a bunch of 20 year olds for 4 months. My first few days at home were weird. The first day I woke up and did not have any thing to do or any where to be. I could not figure out what to do with myself. Driving my car was strange. Michelle kept making fun of me. My driving skills have definately changed. I am use to looking about a half a mile ahead, when I see break lights coming on I start to slow down so that by the time I get to the traffic I can come to a slow stop. One revolution of the truck tires is 500 feet. So you need to give yourself plenty of time and distance. It looks pretty funny when you are doing this in a little car. I would start slowing down When I saw cars stopping about 5 to 6 traffic lights ahead. That is just one example. Michelle thinks that I am to cautious and I now think she is not cautious enough. Speaking of driving, My car did not get drivien for 4 months so when Gloria (our stepmom) came I thought that would have been a great opportunity for them to drive my car. But that did not happen I don't know if it's because Michelle did not ask or Gloria did not want to drive. So Gloria the next time you come If you want to please drive my car! When I leave out I will be headed to Jamestown New York Then who knows after that because I will be back to driving all 48 States again.
