My husband is a boilermaker which means he's always out of town. Right now he is 3 hours away and comes home most weekend if he is working 5 days that week. This past weekend I took our boys to what we call the work house. It's the house he rents with 2 other guys he works with. Leaving to come home just kills me. My boys are very young 2 and 3 1/2. Seeing my 2 year old with these sad eyes as we are pulling away looking at his Daddy. Then my other son waving and saying he misses his Daddy. He just start with the boilermakers in August. I never would have thought it was this hard having him gone. It's like I'm single mother. We are expecting our third child in July and it's a girl. I just think of how much he is going to miss with her. I just get so depressed sometimes having to take care of everything on my own. If any of you have out of town hubby's, have any words of encouragement.
