[FONT=verdana,arial]You Might be a Trucker's Wife if...


You find yourself having in-depth conversations with your pets and
you feel that they truly understand you.

You know how to change your own oil and tires, fix the washing
machine when it breaks, lay carpet, and pour cement.


You find yourself using terms like hammer lane, four wheeler, Flying
Hook, DOT, O/O, lot lizard and reefer (although not in the same
context you did in high school) in normal conversation, and find
people looking at you as if you were speaking a foreign language.

You don't shave your legs until the day your husband is due home.

You can't wait for your husband to get home and then you can't wait for him to leave.

You have cell phone bills rivaling the national debt.

You hesitate to tell your kids "wait until your dad gets home"
because who knows when that will be.

The only company you have for days at a time is the television and
the telephone.

Your house is filled with old log books, a variety of road atlases,
tractor-trailer catalogs and blank Comm checks.

You do your Christmas shopping at a truck stop.

Your loads of laundry number in the double digits when he's home.

You can out cuss a sailor.

You occasionally cry when your husband leaves for work.

You find yourself spending holidays and special occasions alone and
then celebrating them on a totally different day from the rest of
the world, but appreciating them all the more.

You bristle when you hear people talking about how truckers think
they own the road.

You find yourself glued to the TV and holding your breath when you
see a report of a semi accident on the evening news.

You find yourself on websites dedicated to truckers and trucker's
wives.

You make meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans and your husband
thinks it's gourmet cooking after weeks on the road.

Your husband's already undressing you after he's been home from work
for only ten minutes.

You're proud of being able to take care of yourself, but at the same
time, you long to be taken care of.

Your main priority when shopping for a house is making sure there's
enough room to park the tractor and trailer.

You know dozens of trucker jokes.

You call your husband and ask him what his ETA to home is.

You have cereal for dinner more than one night a week; the other
nights you have Ravioli or Lean Cuisine.

You know more about trucking than you'd really care to know.

You love being alone, you hate being alone, sometimes all in the
same day.

You get aggravated with trucking for taking your husband away from
you, but you appreciate all the benefits it provides.

You're reading this list and find yourself nodding and laughing out
loud even though you're the only one in the room.

All that spare time on her hands, think she would get a job and pull her own weight so her hubby would not have to work so hard. She can probably hum every theme song to all the soaps. but now I'm just being mean and bitter

When my kids were little, I did watch Days of Our Lives, but once they were able to play on their own, i started a sewing business in my home. Most ppl thought because I was home all day that I didn't do anything. Being a mom is a fulltime job. Many ppl just don't appreciate what all is involved.
