We moved from West Virginia to Oklahoma for my husband to get a better job because the economy wasn't doing so well and we were having trouble surviving. Once we got to Oklahoma we moved in with my parents and my hubby got a truck driving job that was suppose to be regional and he was suppose to be out for 7 days home for like a day and a half. Well that isn't the case. He usually out for about 3 wks if we are lucky and then i might get to see him for a day and a half if I'm lucky. We have a 7 year old boy and a 3 year old little girl. and they both wanna see daddy when daddy comes in but there never seems to be enough time when hes home. i feel like someone is being left out and i think its usually me. i don't mean to sound selfish but it really hard on the marriage not to get to send TIME with each other. and for course when its time for my hubby to leave again he gets real grouchy. i didn't know that being a trucker wife was going to be so hard. i feel like I'm alone in the world. left to do everything myself, i know all I'm doing is complain but I'm hoping being able to talk to someone that understands might help.
