Do you feel you get enough time with dh/so?

I don't with mine. He works long hours and that's great because of the extra money from overtime.I still miss him like crazy!

  • SO & I don't get enough time, either. He works 225 miles away as a mechanic for a major airline. So, we get only weekends, holidays & vacations. He has the great job & I have the house in a non-condusive market. Not to mention 2 boys who graduate this May. We didn't want to uproot them & move them during high school. So, we have some things to finish up. Then, we can consolidate under one roof. Right now, every minute he's not at work, we are on the phone, spending our evenings together, watching our favorite tv shows, catching up on each other's day, etc. Thank Heaven for speaker phones. LOL.

  • Nope, my husband works 12 hours, the goes to the gym comes home and passes out. He was coaching wrestling so on his days off he would have gym and practice but now since wrestling is done I may finally see him a few hours a week, lol.

  • Sometimes. There are weeks when I see him (and we both are awake) 1 hour a day or less. And some weeks he is home, and awake, at least 6 hours a day. We try to spend time together, but it can be hard.

  • DH works two jobs...I think I see him enough. It would be nice if we could ever see each other without having the kids around though.

  • To be honest, we do, but I do not feel like we do. If that makes sense! Call me clingy but I would love to spend every moment I can with him!

  • I don't really think we spend enough time together but some of that could be my fault...DH works 2 jobs, comes home, eats dinner then goes to sleep...his way of spending extra time with me is asking me to come into the room with him and "watch over him while he sleeps" lol....there are 2 reasons why I don't like doing this (even though I still do it sometimes) it's usually around 5 in the afternoon when I need to make sure our daughter is getting fed, and he wants me to lay there so he can hold me...sweet but I'm WIDE AWAKE just laying there in the dark...not fun lol
