No positive attitude being a trucker's wife
I have been reading blogs & I am glad that I have experience being by myself when my husband used to be in the military either down range or deployed & I coped by spending my time with my children.
When they were in school I did coffee time with friends & when I had free "me time" I caught up with my reading & that is how I do it with my husband being a trucker.
The only difference between military & trucking is the PAY! Trust me on this one & with that note trucker's pay is nothing compared to the military's great benefits & I have nothing positive to say about trucking!
Everything we use & own gets to us via trucking & truckers get paid PENNIES per mile whereas military pays DOLLARS & lots of it by at no cost to military members & their families medical & dental, housing on post at no cost & if you live off post they pay you housing allowance in addition to your base pay!
