Ronda -trying to get friends to undestand

I recently posted a letter about my husband being gone a lot and I am angry that it was taken the wrong way. I have no intentions on ever cheating on my husband and I know he has no intentions on cheating on me but the question I get asked most aren't you afraid of that.....and no I am not - I very secure w/ my husband he has taught me how to love again and have faith in the scared bond of marriage.

I think trucking spouses get a bad rap way too much ...most every trucker out there is there trying to support their family and make decent living -I don't a care how much money my husband makes because we work together we are a team. He is on the road a lot yes....but I work too...and sadly we don't have children together he has a son that we don't get to see that much but we have one another and I am just trying to find some kind of support base that gets the "trucking" life...its not all about lot lizards,the high speed chicken feed..etc.. that give those honest men and women trying to provide for their families a bad rap and I am sorry it pisses me off!

He had to leave early the other morning and he tried to sleep at home but couldn't cause he left his fridge plugged in ..and worried his truck would start..so I went down to his "drop" lot and we spent the night in the truck..its not the ritz but sorry for you all that sleep in your truck day in and day out --its the best sleep I get -sorry I should say in the states that still allow you to idle - I begged him to just drive a few miles to put me to sleep--didn't need it -once we snuggled in the bunk I was out like a light and I don't sleep that well at all!

This may sound crazy but put me in the bunk and good night! I consider it a luxury.....

All is good!

I thank you for the comments--I am sorry I just so frustrated w/ the "non trucking" world sometimes-people don't get what we all give up and they take for granted those silly small moments that alot of us have to share alone..but that is why I found this site and so I don't feel alone --I have people that understand! My hubby is home for the weekend life is good! God bless those that have to deal w/ the 4 wheelers that don't have a clue that most of the time they are pulling out in front of someone that is hauling 80,000 lbs (hope that is right rookie I know) and think they can stop on a dime -I pay way more attention to you big rigs now that I have been in one --but LORD PLEASE PUT SOMETHING EXCITING ON I-80 thru NE--no offense but there is nothing there!
Oh he could skip the snow! Its coming soon and don't even mention the words chain up! HOW about those crazy ICE ROAD TRUCKERS --THAT IS IS SEMI CRAZY!

I fear I may have been one of those who read "between lines" given your comments about hanging out with your friends ex cetera. If you and your man can deal effectively the stress of him being on the road all the time, then there is little to say except best of luck. 10-4?

great letter
by: Anonymous

sorry your getting a hard time about your letter but it is true there are great men and women out on the roads who are faithful . keep your head up and dont listen to the people who say different . we all must have faith in our partners and there are some people who live to only say and do negative things . you are blessed to be able to spend a night in the cab with your trucker how very special. God bless
