what would you do? My husband is gone Monday thru Thursday and is home friday afternoon through Sunday night and goes back to work Monday. The reason is: the economy, no work where we live and only job he could find is 2 hrs away and w/traffic it turns into 4 hrs. I feel alone, lonely, like this is no way to live. He took this job so as not lose the house and of course provide for the kids. But, I can't help feel this way, I have to keep with with the house, 2 kids, work, no social life, no work out life, family is 45 min. away and at this point is hard to be positive. Husband is away from home, but, at least gets to hang out w/friends/family....I don't. It scares me this is going to break us. Am I childish or inmature for feeling this way?Answer Question

Take control of your life. You can be depressed or you can do something! Make the best of your situation. If you work and he is only gone M thru R it doesn't seem like there would be that much time alone twith 2 kids to take care of. I could see it being depressed if you were stuck at home with 2 babies and no car, no internet, no TV.
Just keep busy. If you have problems sleeping and don't like watching TV your could read or learn a hobby like knitting. At least you have a husband and a house and you both have jobs. Focus on the good.
