  • I work as well and when I'm not working I make sure I keep DS's mind off of Daddy. We Skype around bedtime so DS can see him. For myself I make sure I have plenty to do when he is gone.

  • I drink, a lot. JK!

    I just stay busy, volunteer work, playing with the kids, keeping DS distracted. I cant stop my life because he has to go away to work...if I did that, I'd never have a life!
