As much as I know myself, I can't really write about myself. I guess I'll start by saying I never thought I'd be married to a truck driver. I respect the job, but I just imagined my husband would actually be married to me and not tarmac!
As it turns out my husband has wanted to drive a truck since he was a boy. He was fascinated by the "big cars." He loves to travel, and he has that chance now. I just hope it does not wear him - or me - down (frown).
I was born in Illinois (yes a Yankee by birth) but have spent the majority of my years in Texas. I love the weather here, and the cost of living is reasonable. Lately we've talked of moving to Florida but we'll see how that goes.
Anyway, I am the oldest of two girls raised in a single-parent home. That said I managed to graduate from Southern Methodist University in 1999 and have held down the same job since graduating. You can see I prefer stability and security.
Jo and I met when he was sent to clean my carpets back in 2006. He worked for Kiwi Services at the time. It worked out as God planned because he did not stay with that job much longer. Plus the fact that he was planning to return to London shortly before we met proves we were meant to be!!
Just over 3 years later we married in a small, intimate ceremony. The day was perfect! As for what the future holds, we have some plans - nothing major. We'll get a house at some point, have a child, the usual stuff.
Right now we are enjoying each other and a life free of real responsibility!
I am here because I have led such a sheltered life in the past. However being married to an OTR driver, you learn that you have to branch out or you will go insane. I hope to make some long-time friends here. If I'm lucky, I'll get to meet them some day.
