My poor DH

My DH has to be in the states for business again.  This week he needs to be in California for a conference....then next week he has to be in New Jersey.  

He just got off a 12 hour flight from Tel Aviv to New York about an hour ago and will be boarding another 5+ hour flight to Calfiornia soon that leaves in a little over an hour.  He left home almost 18 hours ago already and still has a long day ahead of him - it will be before 1pm (local time) when he arrives in California and he has meetings there this afternoon/evening still.  

I just spoke to him on the phone and while he did get a little sleep on the plane - he is very tired.  Hopefully this will be his LAST trip for a long, long time.

 That stinks that he didn't sleep on the plane.....maybe the next flight he'll get more rest.

I give him a lot of credit.... I don't think I could do any job that requires traveling like that!

He is a computer programmer....he has a specialized area he works in and currently works for a company in the US. 

Quoting emmy526:

my nephew does that too, and flies all over for it...he makes a hefty salary in the process as well, enough to enable my niece to take lavish trips to where ever, buy whatever she wants, do whatever she wants, and stay home with her kids.

 He probably makes a good salary being a computer programmer so it's worth it to  lose some sleep to enjoy the comforts of life together.

This recent project has been a pain because it keeps requiring him to travel to the states - he has already been there in Jan and Feb this year...he was only home for 2 weeks this last time.  :-/

This -should- be the last trip for this project.

I feel bad for him. It doesn't matter how much you earn, it's hard to be away from family all the time.

It must have been such a long flight they couldn't give him much time to rest before working. That sucks.

My husband has to go out if town twice this upcoming month. It's going to suck. I couldn't deal with it being more often.
