How do you keep from getting bored?

When we are running we both drive eleven hours which is more hours than most people put in at their 8 hour a day “normal” jobs.   When I get done driving I start cooking supper and catching up on the computer as there is always bookkeeping to be done.   I then catch up on different organizations we belong to with Expediters Online being the first I look at.   I then check on Face Book to see what other friends and family are up to.   After supper I get the dishes washed and do odds and ends in the truck.   Before you know it I need to get to bed as I will be driving before too long.   Bob gets done driving between two and three in the morning so he goes right to bed and when he gets up he has his to do list before he starts driving.   On the weekends or if we do not have a load the truck always needs shined or cleaned inside and out.   On the weekends we do laundry and a deeper cleaning of the truck. In this small of space clutter drives me nuts so everything has a place.   If we find ourselves in an interesting place we will check out the sites or see a movie but bored nope no way we have way too much on our plates for that to happen!

    Vince-=|=-No kidding! There is always some paperwork to take care of... I always call Bob when I get the urge to do my fuel taxes. He is much more interesting than actually keeping up with my fuel taxes- which are always filed in a timely manner and paid in full. -in case the IRS is checking. And if it isn't paperwork, the truck can always use some attention.
