Hi and thanks for thinking of me. Life has been very stressful lately with my move to MO and my Mom's debilitating condition. I spent last week in MO in meetings and furniture shopping.

I have been enjoying the solo life but need a rest from everything. I feel like I have been on a hamster wheel 24/7 for the past 18 months and honestly.... Even youtube feels like "work" and a chore. I answer questions 24/7 for new drivers on need.. And I am exhausted. I have been thinking of taking a couple months off. I stopped training for now.

Just feels like I need the world to stop spinning for a bit.

Sorry to disappoint. And never got the text.

We call get like that from time-to-time. Does Prime offer some sort of sabbatical?

I can take a month off. My last home time was 8 days and honestly it was more work than trucking. I got back on the road and had food poisoning for a weekend not fun.

I've been leaving my phone ringer off and sleeping as much as possible. I know I seem like a miserable witch right now so best not to talk to anyone

Go rent a place at the beach for a week or two. I assume you have taking care of your mom on your plate. Even a few days may help to recharge your batteries.

Kearsey,

You couldn't be a witch if you tried. We all have a moment or two that affects the way we feel and communicate. I'm sure you will be bouncing back to your old self soon. I do hope you feel better and the stress at home eases for you. You are still one of the best bar none.

Rainy you are in no way any disappointment to anyone. You have been experiencing one of those tough times in life. You will need to find a way to slow it down a little. Get as much rest as possible. Your an amazing person and problem solver. You will make it through. I’m very sorry to hear this news about your mom. Our prayers are with you and your mom.

Wishing you all the best young lady!!!
