And so it begins...

Hubby left not too long ago for Ohio... I truly hate saying Goodbye to him. He will get home late Friday, and then we will at least have the weekend before he heads out again. Monday night he is taking off for Italy, then off to Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK) for the 12th-15th. Then he will be headed to India, for an undetermined amount of time... most likely 1-2 weeks. When he gets back from that trip, he will most likely have to head down to New Mexico. This is all on top of some other trips that he already has scheduled over the coming months.

I wonder just how long we can all handle this. I am working on the boys attitude, but it takes time... and all these changes at home don't help the situation at all. Hubby gets 6 weeks of holiday every year, last year he used a total of 2 weeks. Not sure how it will all pan out for this year with all this traveling, I just hope we do get some time.

I just want him home.... our boys drain me each, and every day. I need his strength to help keep me going.


  1. Wow! I don't know what your husband does, but that is a LOT of time away! I don't know how you do it with 3 little boys and him always away! As hard as it is because of money I have to admit I'm loving my husband being home all the time right now. It's nice to be able to just say "you deal with them" when I just can't handle the boys lol.

  2. Wow, ditto Jolene.

    You are one strong woman! Do you have any family or friend support to give you a break, ever? HUGS

  3. Thanks guys ;) I do get some help from friends and family... but like so many of us Mom's, I find it hard to ask for help LOL! This much traveling is unusual, last year he was typically gone only a week a month.

    We are both eagerly awaiting the sale of the business... then Hubby will be retiring!!! I just pray it is this year!

  4. Hang in there, I dont know how you do it but you do I melt down when my husband is out of town for one hole week....haha.

  5. Who says I don't melt down LOL. The computer or books are my friends many, many days and nights LOL.
