My husband and I just recently moved 5 hours away from home so he could work in the oilfield. Lucky for me, he's not on a rig 7 days at a time, but sometimes I wonder if that would be easier. He's a pump driver and we hardly ever see him. I'm grateful that I get to stay home with our children since he's taken this job, but it does get lonely. I never know when he'll be home or when he has to leave. It's really hard around holidays and family events. I just wanted to vent. Thanks for listening!!
