Does your SO/DH work a lot?

Mine does... I feel a little lonely sometimes. I mean I have a lot of people I could talk to but I want my husband! How do you deal with missing your other half?

His work is weird..sometimes he doesn't work for weeks or months on end, other times he's gone for weeks for work. By next year, he should be just working a few hours from home each week and that's it.

7 days a week on 3rd. Usually 8-10 hour days.

He's on a project right now so he travels and puts on lots of hours but normally, no. just normal hours. I work too and usually we are on the same schedule.

He works a lot and he works out of state.  It definitely is one of the hardest things to deal with but it's also a blessing in disguise because I feel like it's really healthy for our marriage sometimes.  It's refreshing the fact that we miss each other...we hardly get sick of each other, it keeps our relationship feeling new.  By all means we both have our days were we hate it and want to be together every day but while he's working during the week I keep myself occupied with the house, work, family and friends and we both try and look at the positive side, the fact that he has such a providing and stable job...and before I know it he's home for the weekend.

You can do it, just got to get in the right mind set.  It's not ideal and it's not easy but you have to make the best with what you got...I hope you start feeling better soon girl!!
