What's to Say?

I ain't written for a spell, mainly cuz nothing much interesting to say. Makes me feel kinda bad. Seems upon reflection, if I don't have a complaint.... Well, I guess no news is good news. Our I just ain't been up to it.
LaSt week I got started late in the day, so it made most of my days upside down; hard to adjust to. Makes it even harder to find the end if my shift at 4 a.m. and try to get a decent parking spot, or ANY parking. But, thank the Good Lord I managed.
My "home run" landed me a relay to pick up, go home, then deliver to Laredo. Soon after my DBL called me to let me know I'd be relaying it at home; another driver was trying to get home, so a trailer swap was in order. No prob. Down side, it lowered my "first out" miles for when I went back on duty. But I'm all for helping someone get home.
I made up for it easy by managing two deliveries before this shift ended. So all is well.
A cool and rare sighting recently, a turkey flew across the road in front of me. Took me a minute to recognize it cause it was a first for me.
This past weekend the wife scored a nice deal. She came in from shopping and handed the kids a couple video games. Excited the older one said, "This says X box 360. Will this work on my X Box?"
I broke his heart to inform him I didn't think so. Wife then handed him a 360. Imagine the look on his face.
With that, my PS3 enjoyment was thwarted for the weekend. But that was ok. We had a blast playing the Konect games. He wore me out playing boxing, volleyball, track & field, etc.
He was jumping on me, hi 5's, hugs, etc. Then told me he wishes I'd beg for my old job back so I could be home every night to spend time with him.
Makes it almost impossible to tell my wife she can be mad if she wants, but I'm no longer working away from home. Even if it means suffering unemployment until something else comes along. Meh.
All the same, life could be worse. Despite the hardships of this type work, she could be unfaithful, mean, etc. But she's not. She don't like it, but we're making do, knowing God has better for us in the long run. I know it's hard on her, and I love and appreciate her. I hope she believes that. Cause I often think she can do much better than settling for the likes of me.
