looking for other railroad moms

Alexis - posted on 09/07/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




I am a mom of a three year old daughter, and I have been married to my husband for 7 years. For 6 years he has been on the railroad and the schedule has always been crazy, but I find myself really getting frustrated with the travel, unpredictable schedule, and inability to ever plan anything. I try talking with him about my frustrations, but I don't think he quite gets how frustrating it is for our family life. He used to travel, but as of the last 6 months he now he works in the yard. The schedule is still all over the place, but I was happy that he was at least at home at some point during the day. Is there any point that there is stability in the schedule? Is this what I can expect for the rest of my marriage? I hate being "married single" as I call it. I am always at events alone, church alone--you all know the profile. It is not how I imagined my adult life, and I feel really stuck. Even when my husband manages to have a day off, all he ever wants to do is stay home. It truly sucks. Any suggestions?
