We kept getting load opportunities, but as soon as we would "accept" the load we would get a notification that someone else got the load. Finally around 4:00pm a load came across leaving Houston around 6:30pm and delivering in Charleston, SC on Thursday morning. It was a Hazmat load. We accepted and got the load.
We got busy immediately and got going. We were about 10 minutes to pick up because of having to go through Houston right during rush hour. But we got loaded, (one small pallet) and got moving. I drove first and got us through Texas and just into Louisiana. Pops wanted to take over then so that we wouldn't be driving out of rotation like we did last week. So I went to the bunk while he drove us through Louisiana, Mississippi, and most of Alabama. I did feel him crawl into the bunk for about an hour during the night.
We are now just inside Georgia and have stopped for a break.
Once we get moving, I will be driving.
Please pray for my family this week. There is a lot going on and everyone is on edge. My sister is not sleeping, Starla is worrying and feels pulled apart. I feel helpless and frustrated. I will fill you in on all of that later.
Keep Melvin in your prayers, although I hear that he is doing much better and beginning to eat "them out of house and home." hahaha
Please keep Pops and I in your prayers. Financially we are not doing well right now. We missed a lot of work over the holidays and are now playing catch up, but we're not "catching up." Know what I mean? I am hoping that our truck holds up and we can keep getting loads. We don't get paid to sit still.
Talk to you more later.
