Wife of Traveling Husband - feeling lonely
Okay ladies - I'm here to chat and just pour my heart out! My husband travels for work and he's gone a LOT! He left today for a long period of time and while we Face Time, skype, talk, text a lot, it's so hard being a stay at home mom and doing it alone. I have so much respect for single mothers! How do you do it!? It's not just the loneliness - which hits the hardest at night, after my baby is put to bed and I'm up. But I'm bored out of my mind. Most of the friends I had in the area have moved and finding other moms and kids to play with has been a little difficult. I'm really outgoing, fun, & nice, it's just the age of the area we're in. It's newly weds (with no kids) or nearly deads (geriatric anyone?). Lol.
I need to plan some fun things for myself to do and get a sitter every now and then. Movies, pediures, etc. What are your thoughts? How do you beat the "I'm with a 1 year old all day and I'm going crazy blues?" ;)
