Thank JammerπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„!! I'm pretty excited for what's to come after going solo. Really starting to love this company,has amazing people and everyone knows your name and it feels like home. I can actually call Carter Express family. This might be surprising to say but I'm actually glad my husband have me go back to Memphis after trying Titan. I'm happy y'all.

Thanks PackRat πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒ!! I still can't believe I got less than 2 weeks here. Tbh I'ma gonna miss being in Anderson,but not much as I miss being home. I can't began to tell you how home sick I was when I came here. On day 3 of being in Anderson,I just about packed up my things to head home. But I had to think about why I came here. I won't lie,I had to beat myself up to stay. I'm so glad I did because I would definitely regret it. These weeks done passed so quickly!! Now I'm just waiting to receive my big shiney truck. I can recall that Carter has two kinds of trucks The Volvo and Freightliner. I wouldn't mind getting the Freightliner as it seems to be alittle bit bigger than the Volvo (probably be just me that sees that). But again happy and excited for the future. Got an email from my driver relations manager (who is super cool and sweet) to go pick my uniform shirts to finish out my training. When I saw that email I knew stuff just got REAL and I'm about to be Solo out in a few days aka weeks!!!!! Will definitely keep everyone updated!!!!

M'lady... you scared us all.

Your trainer, being older.. should have KNOWN not to Def the fuel, and rip the fairings in a jack ~! Hope the lady is okay. I really do.

Local training is OVER; Neither here nor there.. Carry on, missy ma'am. You've got a lotta luv n support here.

Last night of the 'hubby home' for me, (Kinda like Rob T.'s life...) before every weekday local is mostly a 10,12, 14 at home; so we are gonna catch a movie w/the kiddo..until sleep prevails.

Carry on safely.. hope ya DID get to see the hubby in and amongst the turmoil~!

Peace, always!

Hi everyone...it's been a crazy few weeks for me. No I'm not dead or in jail haha. Been on safety leave because I had an episode with one of my trainers. So they have me on leave to get my medications figured out and approved by my doctor (meaning my doctor said I can still drive with my medication)...than 4 days later bam!!! I get info my grandma passed. So now I'm beyond overwhelmed. I'm going back to work since I only had two weeks of training left. Travis (the driver manager) has been extremely careing and understanding in this moment of my life, Shonda (the human resource manager) has also been careing and understanding.

So after everything has calmed,I'll be returning back to Anderson to finish out my training. Like Travis told me,to relax and be with family. That's what I'm certainly going to do.

Thanks so much y'all.
