My husband got a job in N.Dakota last year in september. He got to come home for christmas, but back up to work. I feel like im going nuts with everything i have going on here at home with my 5 year old in kindergarden and doing tutoring, my twin girls going into prek (which I thought I had till spring, they are going in early), house work, and trying to look for a part time job ( well, there is more to this). I guess im feeling overwelmd. Wanting to know if any other moms have gone or are going through this?

I'm sorry. My husbands old job had him out of town 6 days out of the week. I have 4 kids under 4. I almost lost my mind. Lol. I hope things get better. :-)

 My DH goes out of town for work sometimes & I go crazy too! I hate him not being home especially at night.

I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling overwhelmed. When our son was first born we went through a time where he would be gone five days a week. I know it can be hard. But things will get better.

My husband is in the army and is deployed now. You get into your groove but yeah when things get stressful it's hard. All I can say is just keep swimming.

I can understand feeling overwhelmed having children so close together.  My girls are 13, 12, 11 and 10.  My son is 4.  My husband has always been here, but it is overwhelming to raise kids anyway, then to have them so close together is whew...exhausting but rewarding :)
