My husband is gone on his first 2 week hitch with Nabors up in Casper WY. He has been in the oil field since we have been together but in the past he was never gone for more than a week at a time but was able to come home every night other than once and a while. This is a new adjustment for my 3 sons and I (and for my husband as well). Why do I feel like he is out having a good time with the guys after work while I am sitting home with the kids and essentially alone once they go to sleep? I know that he is not out drinking or anything but he just seems so content. I do not want him to feel as miserable as I do but I wish I felt more like he misses us.
When does it get easier and how do you make the time away better?
