Other pipeline wives/moms?

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

Hi, I'm new here and wondering if there are any other pipeline wives or mom's out there. My husband has been a field joint coater for 6 years now. He has no set schedule so we never really know how long he will be gone or home. We have a 4 year old and 4 month old. It'd be nice to find some women who are in similar situations to chat with and get advice from about raising kids when daddy is gone. Thanks.

My boyfriend of 10 years works as a heavy equipment operator. He enjoys working pipeline but works highway heavy when there is not pipeline work available. I totally hear you about the scheduling. Mine has been working in North Dakota since the end of September. He was able to come home for Thanksgiving and Christmas but has since gone back to work. We have no idea how long he will be gone this time. We have a 4 year old girl and a 7 year old boy. Actually when my kids were your kids ages he went to Wyoming on the Ruby Pipeline for 7 months. I took 3 trips out their to see him during that time. 2 with the kids and 1 alone.
