For over 20 plus years my husband traveled with construction. He is very talented. I was a single mom for several years,and married and had another child. They are great children, and enjoyed them so much while they were growing up.I was the disaplinarian. My husband did not want to get after the children since he was gone so much. Now the kids are out of the house, and he has been home the past 2 years. Sometimes I long for him to go on the road again. I think he feels the same way too.He took a job with less pay and no benfits. It was tough, and then he got sick and was in the hospital, and we now have a big deductable we will have to pay. The people he went to work for told him his job will not last, after last summer telling him they had big plans and that it didn't matter the first year, and prob knew they would not make much money. The very day he returned they told him to start looking! In the start of winter! Ug. He has been laid off after many completions of construction jobs. Now we are coming up on Christmas, and taxes. I am trying so hard to keep it together. Iam the one who pays all the bills, and it makes me cry! I did not want him to take this job in the first place, and now I am resentful. I know it is not his fault, but after 20 some years he decides he wants to be home? I want to just leave ( not really) some days maybe. I want my heart to get over this, but I am tired of worring. I pray about this daily. I am just going to give it to God. :0(
