The Ladies Lounge is the newest category on the Big Rig Ebooks Blog. This is the spot for the ladies to hang out and exchange crafting ideas, recipes and tips for running a successful trucking household. At Big Rig Ebooks we want to include every facet of a truck driver’s life and interests. So why not have a place for us ladies? There are also many ladies cruising the roads out there that may not have the time to research these projects. The Ladies Lounge will be the place for you to harness your inner Martha Stewart while also remaining a dedicated road warrior princess. We are looking to create an online place for the girlfriends, wives, spouses and our very own lady truck drivers out there to communicate about what they are interested in.
Since I will be looking after the Ladies Lounge I would like to introduce myself. My name is Holly and I am married to the founder of Big Rig Ebooks, Spencer. We have been married for over 10 years and he has spent 6+ of those years trucking. At first it was difficult getting used to him being gone all the time. However, as he continued his career to support me and the kids it has gotten easier. I was able to utilize some family and close friends to keep me busy while he was away. The friends and family did indeed keep me busy while he was gone. However, one thing was lacking. They simply didn’t understand what I was going through. I was getting comments like, “how does it feel to be a single parent” or “it must be difficult to be a single mom?” They just don’t get it, I am not single parent at all. My husband just loves and cares about me and our family enough to do whatever is necessary to provide a great home life for us.
I have always enjoyed decorating the house, trying out a new recipe, creating new craft projects and finding inexpensive but rich looking gifts. So many people have told me that I should put this information out for others to see. My husband approached me about providing some of this insightful information to the ladies that I have something in common with. That is you! The wives of truck drivers! I soon realized that we all have so much to talk about. There are many ways that we can help each other to make our households and lives a lot easier. Therefore, I look forward to engaging in the conversation with you ladies about the things that interest us! I would love to hear about the things that you ladies do to pass the time while your truck driver is on the road. Among the normal daily household stuff I like to decorate the house, make awesome crafts and try new recipes. I like to get the kids out of the house by going to the zoo, a museum or a movie. Again, I would love to hear from you ladies out there and look forward to engaging in the conversation about our lives!
