HI Tiffany,My husband has been a truck driver for 10 years. We have been together for 4 of those 10 years. When we first got together we had no children and I would go on the road with him and i really enjoyed it then I became pregnant with our oldest who would have been 2 this year and I stopped riding with him. We ended up losing that one at 18 weeks. I asked him to stay home to be with me while I delt with the lose of our son. I am now the mom to a 7 month old and my husban dis no help when he is home. He is home for about 12 hours a week. And its hard. I just want you to know that you have support.

well...it is a little difficult to get used to.  I was a single mom for 7 years when I met and married my husband.  I was used to being alone so him being gone all week wasn't really a big shock to me.  I have to admit that it gets a bit stressful on the weekends when he is home because the whole dynamic of the family changes.  All of a sudden you have a "head of household"  !!!  that sounds a bit silly but it's true.  I was used to doing everything on my own before he came along but since this is all new for you, it may be a bit hard to begin with.  It's not a way of life for everybody.  Good Luck :o)
