Not a good weekend...

My DH works as a mechanic/welder on strip mines and always deals with the fact that he could be laid off any day since the mines have been shutting down. But yesterday he came home and asked if I wanted to go to town. He said we needed to talk about some stuff.


So, on our way to town he said his employer is changing the business. Instead of working around WV where we live, they will be sending crews out to Kentucky, Ohio, the Carolinas, and other neighborhing states. Meaning, DH would only get to see our kids one week out of the month.


He already is lucky if he sees our youngest at all in a day and he is missing so much of their lives just working the way he has been. But to be gone three weeks at a time is unacceptable to both of us. And so tomorrow we find out if DH is going to quit his job and TRY to find a new one or if he is going to have to keep this job and miss more of his kids' lives than any of us want him too.....


This really really sucks.....

Id suggest he keep this job until he can find another one.

I agree, Perhaps keep his current job while looking for a new one.

I'm sorry.

I wouldn't want him to quit unless he had another job.
