Of being sick and tired!

No, I'm actually really sick. Well, both of us are.

We left the house yesterday to deadhead 340 miles down to Arkansas to pick up a load going to Jersey for 0900 on the 6th.

They refused the trailer when we got there. Nothing I did or didn't do. They've actually been having to refuse a lot of our trailers for the same problem. Luckily, a shop down the road let me come in so they could fix it.

But ever since the day before we left the house, I've been feeling something coming on. I tried to counteract it with extra vitamins and keep going, but today was just not happening. I managed to at least get a few hundred miles down the road to our yard in Tennessee and sent our skeleton crew of dispatch saying "it just ain't happening. I can't do it. I need to park it and go pass out."

They haven't responded back yet, but hopefully I'll know something soon. Although, if they don't hurry up, I'm gonna be asleep!

Deadhead:

To drive with an empty trailer. After delivering your load you will deadhead to a shipper to pick up your next load.

It's really awful being sick out on the road. Happens to us all every now and then. The best part is it only being temporary. "This too shall pass." Hope you feel better soon.

I sure hope you will get to feeling better. I will certainly pray for you.

"Father God, we sure ask that you relieve C.M. here of her sickness so she can resume turnin the big miles and can make some good money to help out her family. Please bless her any way that you can so she gets over her sickness and can get back to doing what she loves. We also pray and ask that she can somehow get the means to get her a new laptop so she can get back to her channel. All this we ask in your son Jesus Christ's name, Amen."

I sure hope that helps you out here. I have faith that it will. We are all here and we love and care about ya and wish you the very best.
