What Day is It?


With Tony off the truck and me driving solo, my orderly world has gone haywire.
We keep such a nice schedule - I always know that I will be awake and on duty from 3 in the afternoon until 3 in the morning.  
Then I lie down and go to sleep.  
Sweet
As a solo, there is NO schedule and TOO MANY rules about hours of service.  Without going into the details, here is the short story . . . it is a bit past Noon and I haven't slept in just over 24 hours 
and 
 I have gone through so many ups and downs and sleepys and awakes that I don't know if I can go to sleep now that I am supposed to.  
THEN 
I have to get up at 10:00 tonight and drive for 11 more hours and 
THEN 
stop and sleep
THEN
THEN
THEN
 
Once I get into that routine, I will drop this load in Calexico, California and a new dispatch will turn everything upside down again.

I don't want to be a solo driver.

So I'll leave you with the only thing that makes sense right now . . .  

a sweet baby foot.
Possibly one of the cutest things in the Universe.

Oh girl, I know you are missing Tony so much out there on that long, lonesome road! Here's hoping you can catch some much-needed ZZZs! xoxox to you!

So who do you miss the most, Tony or Leo?

Both - although I have to say that Leo leaves the bigger hole.

You no doubt know the saying, "Dogs aren't your whole life but they make your life whole"? Leo is such a nice little guy. When you and Tony were in training and you left him with your mom and dad I got to meet him. He and Jodi went on the morning walk with your dad and I. My two toy poodles, JaJa and CoCo made up the rest of the "pack". They all got along together so well.
