I am so excited that I can’t sleep. Well actually the fact is that my husband is snoring like a freight train. No matter what I do, I can’t get him to stop! So I thought this would be great time to post a quick update and fill everyone in with what we have been up to over the last 7 months.
We never did make it to
Hollywood. It is a little disappointing, but on the other hand, I don’t
know if I could deal with all the paparazzi.
(LOL) Of course Randy is very
saddened because he is still "just an ordinary guy" and not a
celebrity. To be honest I don't think
he could handle being a celebrity. He would not be able to fit
his head through any door. For those of you who
know him, I am sure you know what I mean.
Randy and I went home for Christmas
with the intention of going back on the road in the middle of January. At the time we had our “Red Solo Truck”. It was a Kenworth T600, which is intended for
a solo driver. It was extremely tight
for the both of us, but we wanted to test the waters of being Owner/Operators with
a dependable truck. That is key in
this business. It was an awesome truck in every way, but the size. We knew that we would not last in that truck
for very long. I won’t bore you all with
the details, but we sold the truck with the intention of buying something bigger.
In February my daughter and I decided to jump
into a business venture. We have been
talking about this for several years. The
opportunity presented itself so we decided to finally do it. In April of 2014 we open the doors to an upscale
Tanning Salon which offers several different services. My daughter is very happy and doing great!
In June Randy purchased a used Volvo. He went back on the road as a solo driver while I stayed behind to help our
daughter. This was all temporary of
course. After only four short weeks
Randy realized that he could not live without me. He needed his better half. Coffee in the morning was just not
the same and there was no one to make
him the special sandwiches that he loves so much. Life for Randy took a different turn. And of course without having his wife there to entertain him, what is the point, right? Well Randy decided to come home and wait
for me. J
We are almost ready to hit the road
again! That is the reason why I am so
excited. I really missed driving. I love the job. I love being with Randy and having our coffee
in the morning. I love the fact that we
can call our own shots. We can stay out
on the road for as long or as little as we want. I can’t wait to see the country again. We are finishing up some things in the
truck, like cleaning it. Every time I ask
Randy if he cleaned something inside the truck, his answer is “I don’t remember”. So I have to scrub the truck from top to
bottom. I am also working on the bedding
since we have two bunks now instead of one.
This is so exciting. No more
stumbling over one another. We have
plenty of storage and plenty of room. I
will post pictures soon. I have to admit
that even though I am excited, I am also very nervous. The truck seems so big. Below is a picture of the truck. It is not a good picture, but it is all I have
