Thursday 3/8/2012

What started out as going to be a short day in terms of deliveries ended up to be a marathon. BUT, there was one big difference today than many other days, that being that I had to wait for long periods of time at deliveries and even pickups.
I take all the junk with me with my laptop anymore in the truck. Junk being the DC to AC converter and the charging cord for both the computer and the mobile broadband device.  Oh, was I ever-so-loving glad I did today.  I bet I spent 5 hours sitting in the truck with nothing to do - nothing, of course, unless you have a laptop computer that has internet access.
When I am able to engage myself during the day during the waiting periods, I don't get sleepy and lethargic.  Which generally helps the day go by much easier than if I'm just sitting there taking short naps.

It's also nice to recharge the computer off the semi DC outlets : )

Umm, tomorrow is Friday already.  It has been a long and a short week at the same time.  I cannot get Coco out of my head.  Not that I am breaking down at this point and going haywire, but I miss that doggy.  But, my  Danes are more than happy to see me when I get home and wagging their tails, jumping up and down, running around, smashing into my side, you know, nice doggies.  Life goes on and time will help, but not that much time has passed yet : )  I haven't lost a human, but as far as I'm concerned, I have definitely lost a family member.

I did not search for any dogs today, I have gone through so many sites that it became overload and decided today not to do any of it today.

As for the rest of my life, well, it is what it is.  Long day at work today and looking to be a long day at work tomorrow as well with 7 deliveries in the system already.  Yes, if you are delivering pizzas, that isn't many deliveries, if you are delivering truckloads, completely different story.  Especially if your duties not only include driving the truck, but also pulling the orders, verifying quantities; palletizing and shrink wrapping the product and also putting it onto the truck.  A vast majority of truck drivers do not engage in all of that, trust me, I know from a a lot of experience.  Not that I am better, but it is definitely more engaging.

Annuals are on sale at Home Depot.  I would like to put some color out front in the form of flowers and - well just want to add something different out there.  Well they aren't "on-sale" as in some reduced price, just that they are now available.  I have 3 large pots out there and they look really nice when I fill them up with flowers.

I haven't worked on the roof of that trailer in several weeks now.  I was preoccupied with Coco and trying to get her well.  I didn't want to do anything else.  I am hopeful to have the resolve restored in me this weekend to get up there and get more done with it.  Well, I don't know and certainly not saying I am definitely get up there, but I hope to.

So that's it for now.  I am sick of all the s*** with the GOP race for the nomination for presidential candidate and the more I see Romney, the less I like.  I will vote for him if it comes down to it to get rid of Obama, but it would be nice to see something suddenly appear in the Independent realm that would actually be to my liking.  I would rather not have to vote FOR someone just to get rid of someone I don't want in there.  I actually liked Bachman, to be honest, but that's history and I would rather vote for Santorum over Romney.

Done.  Tired, out of it and it's almost 8:00 pm.  Close enough to my bedtime.


Interesting day. Up early - 4:00, jolted out of deep sleep by the ridiculous phone alarm - annoying as all get out but that's the inten...
