Two Days down.

Tuesday
We dropped off Andy in Dalton, Georgia on Sunday. The following day was interesting to say the least for him anyway. The started off with 42 men, between physicals, strength test, back ground checks and drug tests. US Express was down to 19 guys including Andy. The whole day was spent waiting in a room as personnel slowly weeded the bad apples out. We knew Andy was clean and healthy, but now he’s been checked over by a fine tooth comb. Not even working for bank required so much revision. But in the end he passed and if there is a trainer around he will start tomorrow.

There have been many times in our marriage that Andy has traveled for work a few days here and there. Just enough to remind us that families need both mom and dad to get the platoon moving. Now Andy will be gone for weeks, and only a few days at home. We adjust, exchange text messages, the kids call about school and how to get the PC to work.

It still stinks.
