How would you feel about this husband's work schedule?

One week home, one week gone. It can be home 4 days to gone 10 days even. It makes me crazy. How would you feel about it?

  • My husband is on call 24/7 so its always a crap shoot. In 2007 he left to do a job that was going to take a week and it took three months.... it was like an extended vacation for me! ROFLMAO....

  • I would support him - some jobs require a crazy schedule; my DH travels quite a bit, works long hours, I appreciate what he does to make sure we are taken care of.

  • My husband is a sports announcer. He travels all the time and there is no set schedule. It's incredibly annoying but there are lots of other benefits to the pay and he also has a down time where he gets 2 months in a row off at a time. His last trip he was gone for 50 days to South Africa for the World Cup. Sometimes I joke that I feel like a single mom with a trust fund.

  • It would only bother me if the time he got to be home lacked in quality time for me and our family.
