Mine doesn't travel, but he does work nights and weekends. I've got a standing Friday night pizza and wine "date" with one of my mom friends whose husband also works Friday nights. It works great for us because we both have the kids and can't really do a night out, but still have some fun. And her wonderful husband comes by to pick up their daughter when he gets out of work, so she doesn't have to wrry about driving aftr a glass or two of wine. Some times we invite other moms over too, but its great to have a friend in a similar situation. You may want to do a post in your local group to ask if any other moms have a similar situation and you all can get together.
