My hubby and I generally work m-f days, so I am used to and LOVE lots of time with him. He has been working out of town during the week for the last couple weeks, and will next week too. I am hating it!!
I understand how you feel. My husband just recently started working a lot of overtime at work (he works at a distrubution center and lifts all day long) and many of the guys are either hurt, call in sick or are using FMLA leaving my husband working almost 2 hours over each work day. It isn't easy as he drives to work an hour a way already...So, he is gone about 13 hours a day sometimes...it is rough. When he gets home he is very tired, has dinner a shower and then gets ready for the next day again, it is frustrating and lonely at times as I'm a stay at home mom to a special needs little boy...but, I'm hoping it won't last forever!! ((HUGS))
Probably but I would look at it as taking care of family I work 7 days a week and go to school he work 6pm to 6 am we hardly see eachother but we make it work we talk or text all day he visit me at work and picks me up from school
It would be frustrating at times I'm sure, but I only see my husband 2 days a week since he works out of state. It can be stressful on a relationship but you have to make the best out of it, he's doing it to support our family and it could always be worse!
Nope. I would be proud he is doing whatever it takes to provide for his family. YES my son and I would miss him like crazy but its not about us. Its making sure we have a roof over our head, food on the table, a doctor to go to, and bills are paid. Oh the sacrifices!
do you only see him 2 days a week period, no mornings or nights? DH's work schedule is always the same and i wouldn't want it to change but i think i'd be okay if it did. if it meant more money for that time being to take care of the family, i would deal.
I would have to say no, it isn't a big deal to me, but my dh is a cop and works a tremendous amount of overtime. For the most part, the 3 days that he is suppose to be off usually turns into maybe only 1 (a lot of weeks there are no days off) because of court and the OT shifts. However, this is us and may not work for you and your SO, only y'all can decide. I would recommend keeping communication lines open though.
