We all scream for ice cream!

Music of the day: Destiny's Child-Writing on the Wall, Ashlee Simpson-Autobiography & I Am Me, Ace of Base-The Bridge
Start: Up at 7am, on the road at 7:45am. Carlilse, PA.
End: 6pm Somewhere in IN

Yesterday I gave myself a manicure and my nails look much better. My cuticles seem to get really dry on the truck for some reason. If I don't push them back and put cuticle oil on them once in a while they start to get ragged and hurt. No fun there. 

Today I put chicken breasts, corn, green beans, and sweet potatoes in the Crock pot. It was good but I still want some ice cream! 

It's snowing some in IN where we are but not much has stuck to the ground yet. Might be more in the morning though if it keeps it up.



I love pictures of barns!

"Put a smile on your face"

Music of the day: Vitamin C
Start: Up at 7am, don't remember when we got on the road. York, PA.
End: Carlisle, PA

Got a load going to WA! It's a good run and about 2600 miles so Darin is happy. I'm happy to go to WA because so far all the places I've been there are really pretty. Also I will get to go through North Dakota which I haven't gotten to travel through before. Had a nice long shower at a Petro here in PA so that makes me really happy too!

When we scaled out after we were loaded, we were over gross on the weights so we had to go back to shipper to get some product taken off. I feel like we were just back and forth between places a lot today. We are parked at the Petro now and just came back from eating at Iron Skillet. I had a salad and a steak. Now I'm sleepy. And I want some ice cream!

Happy March 1st!

Music of the day: Charlie's Angels-Full Throttle soundtrack, Dwight Yokam greatest hits, a mix CD I made, La Roux
Start: Up at 7am, on the road at 8am Troutman, NC rest area.
End: York, PA at the receiver 

I didn't get around to finishing this blog and posting it yesterday so this is for March 1st. We ended up meeting up with a couple of Darin's friends who are son and dad and team drive together. I've met them once before for a brief time. They are really funny and always have hilarious stories to tell. It was fun to be able to meet up with them and have time to stop and eat together. We ate lunch at a Petro at the Iron Skillet restaurant, which is probably my favorite truck stop restaurant. It's usually not too greasy depending on which one you go to. I got a chicken and mushroom omelet and it was really good.

We made it to the receiver in York, PA at about 6pm or so. We got a dock door pretty quick but had to wait to get unloaded. I cooked some onions, carrots, and garlic in the skillet and we had that with the ribs that had been cooking all day in the Crock pot. It turned out really good. Pretty soon after that I fell asleep and slept until we got finished unloading around midnight. Darin pulled out of the dock door and went and parked in the staging area at receiver and I went back to sleep after a little while.

Happy March 1st!
