My husband just accepted a job working on oil rigs in North Dakota. He will be gone for 2 weeks, then home for 2 weeks. I am not quite sure what to expect. We will get to see eachother MORE believe it or not as I will be a SAHM now. I have heard conflicting things as to how safe it is, how to get by alone, etc.
Any input here? I know it is better in the long run but I am struggling with the whole idea....

My DH is a motorcycle cop in Los Angeles for over 11 yrs he works 10 or more hour shifts and only gets a few days off a month. He was also was in the Navy for 15 yrs and has gone to war 3 times and did many tours over seas for months at a time. Not saying it was easy but this is all I know after well 20 yrs of this life, it never gets easy but I manage and I am more self sufficient than before I lived this life. I am not afraid of anything. I take things one day at a time. When the phone or the doorbell rings I am ready for anything because I have to be.
It will be hard at first just like anything new in life but I promise you are stronger than you realize...

Yup, hubby is a po-po, 5-0, cop, long arm of the law...jokes aside. When he walks out that door in the morning, we never know if he'll walk back in again. Harsh and painful reality for his very very thankless job.
