We live in Canada but my husband works on oil rigs mostly in the UK but also has worked in many other places in the world. I am so used to him leaving that now when he's home for a longer period of time than normal, I go crazy. He has been out of work for 3 months and he is up all night and sleeps all day and does nothing around the house. He says it's because he is so used to working nights that he finds it hard to get his body back to a normal schedule. We have a 17 month old son and sometimes I think he is just making excuses because he doesn't want to help out with anything. He loves our son and plays with him, but he just becomes a lazy lump when he's home. Has anyone else experienced this?
