Hello all! My name is Shae and my husband is a truck driver. We have been married for almost a year now. We have 2 and a half kids (one on the way) and my husband has just signed on to be an owner operator.
When we met, he was OTR and then he shifted to a local route to be home with the family but now with the economy taking the turns that it has and a baby on the way, he decided that becoming an owner operator was best for the family.
I am a little overwhelmed by this shift and I have less than a month to prepare myself. My plan is to keep track of his books for him and also stay positive and encouraging to him.
