I am a full time working mom, with a traveling husband. He is gone every weekday and home on most weekends. Although, just this past week, he's been gone for two weeks. I am really finding it a struggle to be positive when I talk to him and get angry a lot because I'm finding it hard to hear about his nights out with his work buddies, lavish dinners, and just the freedom to do whatever he wants. Just this morning, he texted me and said, "I'm up bright and early, so i think I'll hit the gym." It was 8am, which sounds like a lovely sleep in to me, and I had been up since 6am with my daughter and was already at work. I think the only reason I put up with this is because his job pays well. But right now, his lackadaisical lifestyle angers me so much. I don't know what to do and I don't want my communication with him to be negative, but I find that this happens a lot. Does anyone have any advice or coping skills for me (other than him getting a different job)? I hate fighting with him.
