    I found myself having a pity party yesterday afternoon that lasted into this morning before I was able to straighten myself out! I do not let myself get into a funk and wallow around in my quagmire of self pity as I really am pretty good at it and I could get better with practice.

    We were able to participate in a special project this past year that has been very different than anything we have done before. We were told that for the project we would need our lift gate and we would be delivering to several residences. Delivering to houses is much different than delivering to a dock.

    I still have not got over my fear at a scale house when the sign says go around back driver and bring in your paperwork. When I see this sign my heart sinks and I start wondering what in the world have I done wrong now and what will the scale master say?

    I was talking to Henry Albert the other day about how in the world do I get involved in so much? I just figured I could not say no. Too many things peek my interest and I end up saying yes.

    Our organization The Trucking Solutions Group Drivers Health Council has been working very hard with Driver Health and other organizations to have the first fun walk at MATS. We have been having weekly conference calls for several months finalizing arrangements and we have some great sponsors I want to start sharing.

    We planned to stop on our way to Bismarck, ND in Beach at the Flying J. I really did not have visions of getting to walk on a beach but, still I had my hopes for nice sidewalks or even could I dare hope boardwalks?

    It was my turn to drive this morning on I90 in the great state of Washington and it was raining. I started driving at 2:00 in the morning just east of the Snoqualmie Mountain and I needed to go west. The night was dark and it had just started to rain.
  • Why as an industry do we almost always shun change

    Change is a part of life and if we do not change with the times we soon will be no more. We are always looking for ways to improve our business and our lives. It is hard for me to imagine having in my life without a goal.

    I wrote an essay on why I would like to be chosen to be one of the participants in the Women in Trucking and Bob Perry, The Trucker Trainer Health Challenge. I was lucky enough to be one of the ten finalists. I have been working on losing weight for the past year but...

    Spring is near! We are in the panhandle of Florida and woke up this morning to the sound of rain accompanied by thunder and lightening. What a way to wake up. I am from southern Arizona and I still get a thrill out of the sound of rain.
