One is the Loneliest Number





I miss my hubby.  Really, really miss him.  He's been working so much overtime and his schedule is all over the place.  Believe me, I appreciate how hard he works to provide for us. I really do.  But it's so hard not getting to see him much at all.  



We don't get to do much together as a family.  If we go anywhere, it's just me and the kids because Charlie is either working or sleeping because he's so exhausted from working.  Sometimes I feel sad showing up to couples events without him.  I'm always afraid that people are going to think we're separated or something because he's never with me.  Stupid, I know. 



I honestly don't know how military spouses whose husbands are gone for months, even years, at a time... how do they do it?  I fully admit that I'm not that strong. And I just really miss my best friend.  



Anyway... that's my sad sack story of the day.  Here's to hoping his work schedule calms down soon so we can spend some quality time together. 








Don't forget to tune in tomorrow night at 8pm EST for the Hump Day Hop! Ciao.

  1. *hug* Oh friend, I'm so sorry. I remember those days. In our case it was a graduate degree, and the semester right before that. I rarely saw Stephen and he left every other week for field work. I just stopped going to church and stuff when he was gone, I was so tired of explaining where he was. It's exhausting and miserable! Hang in there. I'm with you, I could never be a military wife!! I hope your hubby's schedule gets better soon!!

  2. I have that same fear sometimes... Brian works 2 jobs (his second is a part-time alternate weekend gig). When he isn't working, we try to do things BUT sometimes he'll pick up an extra shift and, most times, the couples nights fall on his WORK weekends. It's always GREAT to show up alone. I hope he comes home soon and you guys can have your time together soon...

  6. awww, I know how you feel. Mike used to travel for his work in the first year of our marriage, and he'd be gone for 5-6 days at a time. It's not an easy thing to be away from your best friend for that long (even if he is technically "there.").

    Here's a virtual hug for you!!

  8. I know how you feel. My husband is a CPA {accountant} and during tax season, which is January through April, he is working very long hours and even on the weekends. We don't get to do much or go many places during that time. And it's also hard because it's during the winter months. I know that what he's doing is beneficial for our family, but it IS hard to feel so alone sometimes!

  10. Okay, I just teared up at this....well I can blame my prego hormones too...I am so sorry honey. That must be so hard on you and the kids. When my hubby and I first married he traveled almost 75% of the time for work and it was so lonely. I pray that his schedule will allow him to take some time to spend some qt with you and the kids more often. HUGS!!!

  13. I hope he's gotten some extra time at home since you wrote this post! It always makes me sad and then it makes me need to come visit you ASAP! We still need to work on when this is happening. I totally wasn't able to the last time I mentioned that I'd try, but it WILL HAPPEN. And we will have fun with your boys and be ridiculous together and take pictures, but...I HOPE YOU GET HUSBAND TIME SOON! :)
