    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 ...

    My fears were confirmed upon arrival at the job today, as the truck that I had used in the course of the week and felt like it had a loose shift stick at the end yesterday was out for repairs today. I hope I didn't directly cause the machine to be put out of service. They recommended me to use another Peterbuilt tractor on the lot, but it wasn't until I took it out and around to the trailer and attempted to hook it up that I came to realize that its fifth wheel jaws were stuck and unable to lock ...

    Well, things seem OK so far. Except now my gear shift for the tractor that I'm assigned seems to be getting very loose today. I will not be happy if that becomes a problem that puts the machine out of service in the near future. Also, I misplaced a tote carton at a stop, so that means extra work for the intended recipient. Sigh.

    Songs were decent enough.

    No, really. I have to cross Cermak. No choice.

    Let's see if the echo comes back.

    What? Oh, hi. Well one new thing that I did today was an optional so called Shuttle Run to the nearby GM warehouse for purposes of exchanging empty 53' trailers. It definitely took a lot more distance for it to come to a complete stop than the usual 45' that I carry. A difference of eight feet, logically enough, is fairly significant when you're towing it on the road.

    I was able to both complete my route more rapidly today as well as skip the last stop. Home by 11. I told my Mom that I'd pay a visit sometime by the end of this week, so I took the opportunity to do so today. It was aggravating. My niece cries whenever I hold her alone now. Oh well. Now my Mom just needs to understand that.

    Songs weren't that good today. At least my fingers weren't feeling as sore as yesterday. The athletic tape helped, I believe.

    What a difference an axle makes. True to their word and as logic would dictate, the use of a single axle tractor makes for profoundly easier backing in respect of necessary space and amount of control in the hands of the driver. Now, if only the day didn't start an hour late due to inclement weather. Maybe I would have had a chance at being home before noon. Alas.

    The only bad thing about the day is using yet another different transmission, which required me to become acclimated to ...

    I still can't handle the freedom of the weekends, as far as the times that I should be asleep and awake in comparison to my work week.

    I at least managed to do something slightly useful today in uprooting a bunch of overgrowth that has sprung up on the side of the garage. There were several thistle plants that I removed from the soil and eventually came to a discovery with them. Our house gets flies inside pretty regularly, I'd say I find and kill something like a few per day, and ...

    I fought being sleepy today, but my body would have none of it. At least I didn't succumb to another fifteen hour sleep binge and found other things to do in the day, including going to see Guardians with my wife. She was happy to do it and I think I appreciated the time away from the house and being out with her as much as anything else. As for the movie, it was fine. Pretty much a paint by numbers movie given the subject, but that's all that can be reasonably expected of it.

    Now ...

    Sigh.

    For lack of details which I don't want to put out in public, I'll just say that today was another generally bad day for me doing my job and that I'm not too happy about ending the weekend in this fashion.

    I just need to not sleep through all of Sunday again.

    It's very late and I'm exasperated.

    I did enjoy the song session. It felt good to play.

    It may have became a twelve hour day, and I may have only gotten through parts of it by having fortunate help come at the right times, but I did nonetheless survive the first solo run of the route. I'm not sure if I'll ever get it down to enough of a science that I can consistently keep it to eight hours, but at least it still somehow feels gratifying to do, in the sense of doing something that isn't insultingly menial.

    I'm against the clock now anyway. Maybe more time to talk tomorrow. ...

    The truck didn't really need that segment of the wind guard on its roof. That was yesterday, anyway. Today is a new day and tonight is a new night where I may indeed already be in the position to run the route myself. I proceeded to spend $60 on rubber stamps and ink so that I can slap my signature and the date on the 100+ documents in a more rapid fashion.

    On one hand, the route isn't all that difficult on the face of its nearby locality and for the fact that they load it in a way ...

    Rather than having my first week at the new job start on the second or third shift, it will actually be in the first shift instead. Start time is 7AM tomorrow. Surprise!

    Hence I must make my way to bed immediately as of writing this, and all the more so with the weather going on outside.

    Songs were pretty good today. Had a bad crash in the middle of it, but I took the opportunity to attempt fixing something with a bad chart and the guess worked. So now the game won't ...

    Up against the clock. Maybe I'll do another session before sleep tomorrow instead of before work as now.

    Songs started ok enough but didn't stay that way.

    I lost the fortitude test this morning and turned in long before I wanted to. I couldn't resist the chance to actually be in bed with my wife for a change.

    Windshield replaced, direct deposit set up, checks deposited, tickets paid off. Two issues remain.

    I will be starting the route this week which I was intended to start learning last week. Upon looking directions over online, it looks to be rather short, less than 100 miles total for the whole trip. Let's just hope ...

    Up against the clock.

    Spent too much time moping today. It was good to have my wife home. Her visit went about as we had expected, which is to say, nice in some respects and shitty (pun intended) in others.

    Let's see how long I can stay up today after another long sleep in.

    Songs went rather well.
