  • Yep - we're out here. DH doesn't work offshore.. but he's gone pretty much just as many hours. He's out of town right now. May get to come home this weekend - but will turn around and go right back out of town again.... it's our life.

  • What do I do to pass the time.... I live like a single person (minus the dating and going out and crap).... I keep my own schedule and do my own thing. I live for the times when he gets to come home. And sure enough, when he does come home, my whole schedule is turned up-side-down, but I don't mind. It's the price I voluntarily pay for being in love with him.
