  • It doesn't bother me. I just go about what needs to be done.

  • I just tell myself that life is all about sacrifices and my man is doing what needs to be done for his family but that it won't always be like this.

  • keep in mind that your husband loves you and your family enough to be away from you. Remember some ladies are alone every night because they don't have a husband that loves them, and that makes you pretty lucky. Count your blessings.

  • I hate it....hubby works a day job AND a night job so I get maybe 2 awake hours with him in a 24 hr's rough and I miss him like crazy....we deal with it by texting each other through the day and even when he's at his night job he'll call me at like 4 in the morning sucks to be woken out of a great sleep but I love hearing his voice....we just try to make as much time for each other as possible...but yeah I miss him like crazy and it does get hard.

  • It's hard. I read extra bedtime bks to the kids and when they go to bed I try to think of special things that I enjoy. Watching chick flicks on netflix. Reading bks and magazines instead of watching hubby TV. I also like to drink a cup of Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea(because I love it & I'm trying to help myself to tired to stay up). Sometimes I not like me, but I need the distraction. I let one of my kids have a sleep over in my bed...or I just let myself enjoy hogging the whole bed. Reading in bed is good too. The home improvement wish list just keeps getting longer the more he travels. Hugs. My hubby has been traveling a lot for work so I have been trying to think of things too

  • It's easy for me. I just keep a wooden baseball bat under the bed and a very sharp knife in the night stand and also a pepper spray on the night stand, :)

  • My husband is in the army so there is a lot of lonely nights. I just deal with it. That's all I can do!

  • I really don't let it bother me. I do miss him after 3 nights in a row. Safety wise I live in a gated community so I really don't stress about it but I do have a pepper spray on my keychain if I need it.
