.... my first night with Eric being with DeAtly Crushing. But in defense of my survival, I drove to Kooskia last night. Eric called me and said that he forgot his coveralls, and that's a MUST plus his welding hood. So last night after I interview yet another person for daycare, I packed up the kids and left. I got there around 8:30ish and went straight to bed. Eric's shift is 4:30am til 2:30pm, usually Monday through Friday, but that is always subject to change on Friday afternoon. I got up at 3:45am and headed home, needless to say it's already been a long day. His position is called an "Oiler". Bluntly he's a grunt. When there is overtime to be had, Eric and one other person ( I forgot what he's called) has to stay behind and finish up, whether it's only a couple of hours or the whole weekend. The price we pay, I guess.
This morning when we woke up, I told Eric not to expect me to come up every night. That drive killed me, driving in the rain and at night. Where he's situated and parked isn't all that bad. The trailer was warm and roomy and it has running water. I'm heading back up on Friday morning, and we'll see if we come home for the weekend or just hang out there.
