Hi, I am a mom of 4 and married to an officer for 13 years. Been having a tough time lately. He has been on a swing shift for over a year and looks like we will be here again for another six months. The hours are killing me, the shuffling is over whelming and I feel so alone. My friends all have husbands that work 9 to 5 jobs with holidays off and don't get it. This last holiday season has been its worst for me with him working the end of the week swing shift. My kids are 11, 10, 8 and 7. My mom passed away a little over a year ago, my dad is a mess and my in-laws are in their own world. I am hoping to find someone who understands where I am coming from and may have some advice to start the new year.
