    Out of the gate one hour sooner, as would be expected by the hour advance shift in everything before going to work. Yet I still managed to be done later today then yesterday. Funny how having a lot of engines on return will change things. At the end of the day, I was summoned for a talk with the boss and they've decided that as early as this Friday they may have my first two stops be temporarily handled by someone else. My pay rate wouldn't change during this period. I was told to not take it personally, ...

    The intended dispatch time is 130AM. The usual time I would get out at latest is 230AM. Today, I've come to find out that one of the two loaders who usually works my route first is absent today and possibly this week. I left the hub at 330AM.

    I need to wake up at 9PM instead of 10PM to get there an hour earlier, for this week if not always hereafter. Swell.

    On that note, time is up for songs today. It actually was pretty good, especially considering I didn't bother ...

    The D3 ROS bender has come and gone, and all I got are some not lousy legendaries to start the ball rolling. Hooray.

    Bless my wife, for she had to deal with her friend's child more than I did this time. About twice as much, really, considering that I was at work all of Saturday midday. The situation will not be improved in October, nor, as current trends with him continue to hold, in general.

    Let's see what the new week holds in store. I'll be happy as long as there's ...

    The rain that was supposed to be falling yesterday came today. The cargo which didn't get shipped yesterday got shipped today. Yesterday I was back to the hub at 9AM. Today, it was 1230PM. The torrent of rain came at the first stop of my day, which is where I had the highest quantity of goods to move, so I got thoroughly soaked at the start and remained drenched through the rest of the day. Supposedly, more rain may come around tonight.

    We have company coming in this weekend. ...

    Today's route run was the lightest that I've ever had so far. The timing of events throughout the day was very strange as I was reaching places in darkness that I normally see in sunrise, and not seeing nearly as much traffic on some stretches of the path. There were patches of rain in the morning, though, and trying to navigate a truck and 45' trailer using only the reflection of light off of the wet pavement while the defroster doesn't work to remove any of the fog is a trying experience. Regardless, ...

    In bed at 530PM yesterday when it's usually 4PM, as it is now. Why? The game. Oh, the game. I'm very displeased. Very displeased.

    Up and at work, on the way out, and I find out that the truck I was driving is elsewhere. I get to the one that I'm assigned and come to find out it's almost out of gas. Do the preload and gas up. Bugs are everywhere. Start driving off and within 10 minutes I see a gigantic winged something on my elbow. Notice it's a moth a few moments later. Finally make ...

    In limbo.

    Putting this up now while I have a moment. I intend to write more tomorrow.

    I think I'm finally at a point where I can manage my time properly on the weekends. I didn't succumb to any kind of extra naps through the course of the days.

    A while ago I wrote that reading Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds was going to be quick and entertaining, but unfortunately I said as much before I reached this chapter on alchemy. The tone of the narrative didn't suddenly change, but reading one account to the next of a given person who was brought ...

    The party actually went well, in my opinion. I'm glad we went. The kind of conversation and level of engagement was different than that of the prior week.

    On the way home from that, we visited Fry's, and the visit confirmed what seemed to be the case the last time we went there about a year ago - the place sucks now. Half of the shelves are barren and a substantial portion of product on the floor is merchandise that isn't electronics based. Toys, perfumes, As Seen on TV fare were ...

    My wife left a nice surprise for me on my new Ipod today. It made me genuinely laugh. It helped keep my mood up throughout the day, which was rather easy today as I was able to move from one stop to the next with minimal downtime between each.

    Another open Saturday leads us to be attendant of a birthday party, this of my cousin's husband. They moved to a new house a while ago and I haven't been there yet. I also didn't submit any kind of gift for the baby shower of their first child. ...

    I'm happy to report that using a Bluetooth piece with an Ipod Nano is a perfectly acceptable means to have a portable audio source on you for an entire day (well, more like eight hours) with practically no interference to physical activity or function. Once I wrapped the Ipod in an additional plastic bag to ensure that it didn't get any errant touches from my pocket, it was smooth sailing the rest of the day until the battery was low on the Bluetooth. Yes, I think this will be very useful.

    My wife's been sick for a while, having something to do with a persistent cough and a sore throat. It finally spread to me, though I don't seem to be suffering as badly for it. It is bad enough that it made me lethargic enough to not play songs nor exercise yesterday. It didn't help matters that the route run yesterday went on for at least two hours longer than normal, and this was due to the amount of returns which I had to take with me after every stop. It wasn't until midday that I finally had ...

    Number 3520. This is the one that I used predominantly in the week of the St. Louis trips. Shifting felt very good and doing all the stops that required back ins happened without any kind of trouble or even repositioning. Stop, aim, back in, done. This was the case until I got to the final two stops, which includes the home hub, where I have to dock into a bay door. If you curve it too much and (or? both?) hang on the clutch too much to ensure that positioning is good, the machine still bucks worse ...

    When the work week is five days and closer to sixty hours than forty, it feels very strange to not be working.

    I kept sleep schedule but snuck in another four hours of rest after waking up for the Sunday night NPR session. Hopefully I'll get to the point where I won't succumb to that and find things to do to keep me awake throughout the night so that, if anything, I simply start rest earlier on Monday afternoon for the start of my week.

    Songs were pretty good today, ...

    The party went well, in consideration for its purpose and intent. There were a lot of people there. My wife's picture that we gave as a gift was well received. I got to tell some trucking tales, and then leave early on out of consideration for my sleep schedule.

    Upon the return trip home, my wife made the observation that most people still don't even address her by name upon the initial greeting. We've been married for five years. Yeah, OK, we usually don't take meausres to converse ...
