my life on the road
by Paula Mowers
Coping living in truck 24 7?
Basically our schedule...(husband and i)
Example-he wakes up.goes inside.gets breakfast and coffee..
Goes back to truck.wakes me up.gives me breakfast.I mix up his coffee.kiss him.say I love you.go in the back.eat my breakfast and go back to bed...
a while later I wake up.i hear Elvis on the radio. i go potty. smoke CIG.go back to bed.
A while later I wake up.Elvis on radio.I finish my breakfast.smoke CIG.kiss hlim.sit up front with him.
Sometimes he changes the radio to story time long ranger 1939. I sit up there all day sometimes. neither one of us have much to talk about. so its the radio all day. maybe one stop. get food.drink.potty.and back in truck.drive till he pulls over.
He pulls over. messes with qualcom for a minute, shuts curtains, goes in back, undresses, eats snack, usually finds something to complain about like paper or wrapping I didn't throw away or maybe my shoes are in the way or I moved something out of place and didn't put back.
He then says give me kiss I'm going to bed. He grabs his two pillows.turns over.uses one pillow between the knees and he snuggles the other one and he goes to sleep.
When he awakes and finds me at the other end of the bed he gets angry. I can't sleep by him when he has his back to me. It feels like a big wall and its hard to breathe so I sleep at the other end. At least there's a little more room for both of us that way.
He's 280 PDS. And I'm 120pds. We sleep in a twin bed.imagine that! So that basically my life on the road day after day! At least till home time comes every 3 weeks and when were home.
He gets angry cause I go visiting friends while I'm in town. All he wants to do is sit in the room at motel and watch t.v.all day.mostly mcis.
