How many non sleeping hours in a week do you see your hubby?

I am getting pretty down and lonely and I was wondering how many people were in the same boat. I wish I was near family so we could at least see them. He was supposed to be home early today or so he said and he left at 4 this morning and it is now 8. I never know when he is coming home so I try to stay around so that when he is home I see him. Oh well so how many hours do you see your hubby?

  • About an hour a day on average. He is supposed to be off Thursday and Sunday. Doesn't always happen.

  • I get about two hours each evening during the week- of course those are also around the time I'm getting the kids bathed and in bed. Weekends he's off, but we tend to run errands individually because we have three small kids.

  • Every weekday from 6-midnight, then we go to bed. Then we have all day on weekends together. That is going to be changing soon though, since I just got a part-time job.

  • I see him from about 6pm-10pm if he doesnt go out at night. We see eachother on the weekends sometimes if he doesn't have duty or if he's not underway. And he is gone this weekend.

  • depends on the day/week. Sometimes (like now) he is gone. He has been gone for over a week, & I still have several days before he comes home. So for more than week, its been none. When he is home, its usually about 4 hours a night during the week & all day/night on the weekend.

  • We meet at the gym together during his lunch break, then he usually gets home at 7.. Then we are together 7-11. Then we both get up at 5:00a.m. and have coffee/breakfast together till he leaves for work at 6:30.... Plus we have all weekends together... This is all when he isn't TDY/deployed, of course..

  • Right now, work's not that busy, so I get to see him on weekends, then maybe 10 minutes each morning if he leaves after 7am. But for the last 5 months, there were times when I'd see him for 10 minutes (total) each week. And starting next week, he'll be abroad for almost a month. I just posted about him being a workaholic, so I don't see him very often.
