My hubby has been driving now for a little over a year and I thought I could adjust but I hate it!! I hate it more every time I think about it. Up until just recently we have been dead broke throughout his whole first year which of course did not help me to adjust. The money is good now but for how long, I know that the trucking slows down after the holidays and then what? We have 2 daughters 13 and almost 5 and now that they both go to school I have been looking for work and have no luck because I have to be home with the kids at night and on weekends. I am just going out of my mind with this career choice. I miss him terribly when he is gone and thrilled when he is home but then I feel the pain when he leaves again. I have gone as much as 65 days without seeing him!! We moved to a new town in the spring and I don't know anyone which makes it even harder since there is no one to talk to. I just needed to vent that I hate him being a trucker!!!
