  • Is he in the union? My husband works for the Ironworker Union. And he loves it. But so far he hasn't had to work out of town to much. So that is great. But I would hate it if he had to like yours. Of course the way that work is slowing down, he just may have to go somewhere else soon. I will hate every min of it.

  • I understand. When it is good, its good, and when bad, real bad! As far as money goes. Does he not live close to any jobs. Or has he just been on a long one away from home? You know if they work out of 3 dif states in the year, you can claim it on your taxes and it gets you alot more money back. I hate the car situation for ya. I know that has to be rough. Hopefully though you are around alot of friends and family that can help you out. I am so far back in the boonies, I don't know what I would do without a car. LOL, it would be very bad!

  • My hubby is a pipefitter/boilermaker!!! Right now Chase is still little enough we're on the road with him!! We don't like being apart so this is a better option for us. But there have been a couple where it didn't make sense for me to go, and i hated those!
