More Knitting Time!
I had told dispatch that I would be ready to leave the house today but to be honest am still feeling a bit tired after 6 weeks on the road and am not really feeling like hitting the road again.

I called in this morning and she hadn't yet found me a good paying load. Cool! I told her to just work on finding something for Monday.

Now I have a couple more days of rest and knitting time.

It's what I do. I'm normally only out 3 or 4 weeks at a time but extended it this last time due to the upcoming holiday season.

And you do get some layover time during the 6 weeks, true? I mean you're not driving continuosly, they have regulations against that....

I was just commiserating with one of my coworkers about how a full-time job takes all the fun, aka knitting and shopping, out of life. I guess I need to think of work as a way to enable my two major hobbies.

What I wouldn't give for a couple of days of knit time!
