The Daily life of a trucker’s wife!

Without trucks,the world stops!!

Well it’s a new year to ponder.

Well it’s a new year 2008 and my husband is still working driving a truck and me still thinking how we got here. I am no longer riding with him in the truck nor is he driving long distances around the U.S. Instead he drives from Lakeland Florida to Albany Georgia rounding about 600 and something miles per day.I do pnder how long he will be doing this since this is not what neither of us wants for our lives now our future, but Florida is hard to live in and it will be extremely difficult to find anywhere what he gets paid now. So as this year goes by we will both be making adjustments as we prepare for our future family. Until next time…

  1. Hi Melissa, I think I came across your site through a rabbit trail that began at site. I’m also married to a truck driver. Long haul, but he often goes down to FLA. Not a lot of loads coming out of there, though.

    Truck driving is a difficult thing to get out of, but sounds like your dh made it to be home each night, so that’s a huge plus. 🙂

    I have a blog, on Xanga, GirlNotHome.
    Wishing you well!

  4. Hi,

    I’m so glad to find you; someone who understands this life. My husband has been driving for some time now. We have two kids, one 7 and the other 1. How do you and your family cope with the constant changes in schedules? It’s tough!
