Home Again

We park the truck right outside the our side door and I run back and forth for at least a day getting everything I forgot out of the truck.   I try to get everything washed the first day and put back in the truck as the next day Bob takes the truck out to our shop so he can start all of the things he has planned.   While at home he likes to tinker on fixing this and that and if it is time the truck heads off to the shop to have the transmission serviced or to the CAT shop to have overhead run or any other maintenance that needs to be done.   Bob is able to handle most of our regular maintenance work on the truck which is a huge cost   savings to us.   I think he also uses the truck for peace and quiet when our girls are both at home as we all become chatterboxes and are constantly laughing at something.   Bob sometimes has it pretty rough when we are all together as the girls and I change our minds constantly and Bob has figured out to just sit back and when it is time to do something and we will let catch him up to speed when we finally make up our minds.   We also do not have TV at home so none of us are ever in the living room starring at a box.   We usually have cards, cribbage,  or backgammon games laying on the table and if we have a minute we are playing.   We are also all computer nuts and our mornings consist of getting our coffee, our laptops out and sitting around the kitchen table chatting while catching up on emails and other sites we watch.   It is not long though and it is time to start repacking the truck with food and all of the stuff I have dragged into the house.   Our feet also get to itching to see something new and get back into our truck!
