Hubby works for Conway. Being laid off coz of economy :( Sending him to another conway a few hours away could be4 for a few days or weeks till they dont need him any more. This gives him money coming in still while he looks for work but i will be alone all week and hes only home weekends and im use to him being home evry night. Im thankful for this extra work but struggling with the worry of no job soon and him being gone :(

Anyone in the same boat???

I thank God my husbands job still seems to be going strong.. its really scary right now.. he is heavy haul and mostly pulls huge equipment going out to other countries so hopefully that will hold up.. I will pray everything works out for you... as for the being gone.. it gets easier with time.. at one point when I was pregnant my husband was out for a month each time! He ended up leaving that job though and now he is home every other weekend for two days... from the last month of my pregnancy till our son was was about 7 months my husband was home every other night... it killed me at first when he had to start being gone two weeks at a time... but that was 4 months ago and now it just seems normal again.. miss him like crazy of course but atleast im not bawling my eyes out like I did that first week he left! lol.. good luck!

This working away thing is not permanent. They are sending him there as long as a few days or weeks. As long as they need him while he finds another job. I hope its soon! Its very stressful. We have literally pennies left till next pay day and i dont know when the paychecks are gonna stop and if he will have a job to fall into :( I'm soooo scared!

I can't say that I'm in the same boat, but I can feel for you. My hubby is only home on the weekends too. I've gotten used to it and find that he gets better miles and pay. Just keep reminding yourself that it won't be a perminate situation and that things will get better. Keep your head held high!

Not quite the same but similar. I'm on mat leave so limited income for me. My hubby just came in off the road to a new company where he's home every night barring here and there and week ends but its a new company so nothing dedicated yet which means he's taken a huge paycut.What's worse the money or the absentness? I don't know I'm really struggling to pay the bills right now I think I'd rather he was gone as wrong as that is.
