The first few times it tears your heart out, but it does get easier each time. Before you know it, youll even enjoy having a weekend off.

I agree with all the above. It is hard at first but try to find an activity to keep yourself busy. Read a book, take a bath, clean. Just try to calm down until your babies are home.

I try to work out and clean and do errands. Also try to have fun. Time with friends is nice. You can do this.

I've only been living away from my husband for two months and had the same experience not long ago. It hurts my soul every time I have to share my son with my husband. So many BIG feelings. I get though it because its what's best for my boy, but it is soooo hard. I feel like you. I want to be with my family. I feel excluded and rejected. And while I'm feeling terrible, my son is feeling great because he gets to hang with Dad. Nothing about this process is fair or easy.

Hugs! Try and do something for yourself while the kids are away even if its just a walk outside.

The first times I had to hand over my daughter to her father then be by myself was awful. I got drunk for a couple of months of doing that (my daughter goes every single saturday night). Slowly I got used to it though but it was awful until I got used to it, felt like I was a bad mother for not having my daughter for the night, felt bad for my daughter having to go over to his house, etc.
