  • I usually only see him a few hours a night. He works 16 hour days so I do not see much of him during the day but we talk all day while he is at work because he has alot of down time.

  • He's gone 24 hours for 3-4 days then is home 24 hours straight 3-4 days.
    Now that the kids are 4 & 5, when he's gone, I do fine. When they were younger, I wanted his help more.
    When he's here, it depends. If he doesnt have any plans and kind of messes up our routine, it's annoying but for the most part, he does his thing :) and the kids love spending time with him when he's home.

  • It depends on the week. Due to his job, he could be home every night right after 5:00 or he might have to work a lot of overtime and be on call. When he has to be gone a lot I miss him. So do our kids and that's hard.

  • My hubby is home most all the time that I am. I work longer hours than him so he is always home when I come home. We usually always have weekends home with the kids. I love having him around.

  • My husband works Monday through Friday, 8-5. He sometimes work more than that, it depends on what projects he is working on. I like having him around.
