Just the beginning
Hi everyone! Well I'm new to this whole world and we havnt even started the hard part. I'm a truckers girlfriend, weve been together four mo.
He's always made a run here or there (hauling cattle) but his other job had to cut hours and he is going back OTR.
He left for orientation Sunday morning, 3.5 hours away. I'm doing OK with that as we still talk and I even got a surprise phone call yesterday! The part that sucks is my two kids (not his) adore him and constantly ask "when's he coming home?" when I tell them not for a few weeks they cry :(
And dealing with two upset toddlers and trying to pack a house to move is so not easy, I just wish he could come home if even for a night so I could get some sleep, so I'd have at least some energy to get things done.
I know he's doing what he needs to to support us (with this job I get to go back to school and get my degree!!!) and I'm thankful that as little as we've been together he is so invested in our makeshift family.
I love him to bits and will Keep the home fires burning for his return home but I know the lonely night, sick kids, and massively insane move won't make for an easy life, and that's just the first three weeks!!!
I know I'm new but I do have a word of advice for ladies like me; do whatever it takes to stay connected!!! I have come to realize in the short amount of time that even a simple "hi" makes me feel so much better about the distance between us. <3
