It was extremely warm and sunny out earlier this week. Spring must be here because I got that rash all over my face, arms, and hands again. It itched a lot and looks horrible. Mix it with fifth wheel grease…and you have a new form of body make up! :-p I come home looking like my dad now. Kind of nice…kind of not nice.
I almost quit school. Didn’t go yesterday, left early today. Just extremely nervous because we’re going to start going down the county roads. Making a left hand turn across a two lane divided road and dealing with a “lovely” intersection, complete with a rail road crossing isn’t my idea of a first run! Or ever! Well, like everything during the past two weeks, I’m sure my mind will change. A lot. I shouldn’t think too far ahead though because tomorrow is my pre-trip inspection test. And if I get sections two and three, I’ll come home extremely pissed. Nobody wants the shitty job of going under the tractor AND trailer with instructor to point out stuff. Especially if you have no idea where the hell it is. He’s making us touch it… Thank you very much, can’t I point instead?
There’s always the joke that since I’m the woman, I can change my mind when and however many times I choose. I tend to agree. 🙂 In the past week, I’ve spent about thirty minutes behind the wheel and on the range. The yard exercises were introduced last week, and I haven’t even touched them yet. We’re being tested in two weeks, part of the CDL test, but there’s no way I’ll have them down by then. …especially when an instructor isn’t around to assist you!
What’s this, a post in the work category?? I’m getting ready to cut my head off. And kill my manager because my home telephone number has been blocked. Hey, I’m not going to “forget” about my two paychecks that are now well overdue! It’s come to the point where I’m using change to pay for miscellaneous expenses. I have a credit card payment due, student loan payment due, and a medical bill due. God help me if I get a letter in the mail from the clinic. Especially if it’s marked…
