So dh just got offered a job doing construction on "clean rooms".. great benefits, good pay, with rom for growth. The catch? He travels. When they send him out it will be for 2 weeks at a time. We havent spent even one night apart since getting together, and we are used to him working only a part time job. I know this job will be awesome for us financially, but personally I am freaking out right now. How do you ladies who have a out of town husband do it?!

My dh works in sheet metal and has to go out of town sometimes Monday-Friday home Saturday and Sunday. I use to hate it:( I have three small children and hate being home alone at night(big baby I know lol) plus I miss him so so much. I just tell myself he has to what he has to do to provide for us. I eventually got use to it. Luckily he has been having alot of work in town work here lately so that's been great:)

Congrats on his new job. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to get used to.

My dh doesn't leave town for work and with two kids it just wouldn't work for us.

In our house Im.the one that does all the traveling, dh travels about 3-4 times a year. Sometimes it is nice, for both of us as long as we are not gone for to long.

I wish when my husband had to leave for work it was for only two weeks at a time. It's usually six months or more. It will be tough at first, but once you get used to it and get a routine, it isn't as bad as you imagine it to be. Sure you will be lonely and you will miss him, but trust me two weeks isn't really that long.

I work on hobbies that have gone by the wayside. Nurture friendships and stay busy while he is gone. The days that he is home I leave a clear schedule if possible so that we can have family time.
