Does your Hubby travel?

Rate this Entry
My hubby left this morning for Memphis, he will be gone a month. Long time, and the kids are totally freaking out. LOL We are definatly not used to this. We had a 3 1/2 week training when he first started the job last summer, now he is doing so well that he is being sent out to open a new market. Good news for business advancement but not for the family. We are spoiled I guess. I remember my dad never being home during the week as a kid he was always traveling for work, and home by Friday night. Oh well life goes on. It will give us three some indepence ROFL. Hope you are all well. TTFN!

    Glad to see you back on Beans. Haven't seen you in awhile. Hope that things go well for you hubby on this business trip. Mine also works 10 hour days and gets 3 day weekends. But I do remember a time, when he was in the military, he was gone alot. It was hard at first, but then as time went by it got easier for me.

    My husband was always home each and every day. He worked 8 hours weeknights. Then 9/11 happened and our life changed forever! He was called up to active duty and shipped out the next 3 years we only saw him for 17 days and that was spread over 4 different visits! It has gotten a little better. Since his cancer surgery in April he is gone during the week and comes home for weekends. Can't wait for August 2010 when he's fully retired and home forever again!

    My dad used to travel for his job, he was gone for a week usually. Sometimes he'd take me and my mom and sister with him. But you do realize how much you miss people when they're gone for so long

    Dear Beans,
    To answer you question, yes, my dh often travels for work. Sometimes it's just for a couple days, other times, a week or more, depending on the jobsite, or what needs to be done. It can be frustrating, but I find that I'm most productive in the house when he's on the road working. I can guarantee the house will be spotless and the freebies are posted, lol, because it keeps my mind on the fact that he isnt here.
    If you can, try to do something special that you wouldn't normally do with the kids... like have a messy baking night or canning, etc. The kids will have alot of fun and will enjoy the time they have with you all to themselves. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating and sometimes lonely, especially in the evening hours after the kids have gone to bed, but just remember, this too shall pass.

    Hugs,
    Liss

    Thanks Liss, I am taking your advice. I am going to try to go to southern oregon to meet my sister and my niece and nephew from Cali. Oh yeah she is going to bring my dad who I havent seen in 5 years with her. So I am hoping the kids will remember this time. Thanks for all the wonderful words of wisdom
