VENTING! my husband travels too much and I'm feeling sorry for myself!

[[/U]Okay, I just had to get that off of my chest. My daughters are going to wake up soon and while they were sleeping I made enough enchiladas to feed the neighborhood. I thought I was going to go to my inlaws and bring them dinner but they are busy with the other grandkids. Now I am just feeling sorry for myself that it's just me and the kiddo's again. Anyone else by themselves alot?

Yep... us military moms know exactly how you feel. It stinks and when I get days like that, I slow it down to take just an hour at a time. I've gotten pretty good at finding stuff for me and the kids to do.

Good luck mama and lots of to you!

Yup...I feel you...after 13 mos of dh not being here, going through an entire pregnancy, having my oldest start kindergarten, my middle one turning one, all these milestones and he's missed them. I feel you mama, and it's rough, but hang in there!

I do need to slow down and take it hour by hour too. It can really be a test of patience! I have been online looking at any possible activity around our area for us to do!

My DH travels a lot too. He'll be home Monday after being gone 3 weeks. Some days are tough.

Re: VENTING! my husband travels too much and I'm feeling sorry for myself!

me too.
im so glad to read this post today, b/c i have been close to tears all day.
my dh works out of town every week mon-thurs.
sometimes..most the time i feel like a single parent.
he is soooo busy right now with a big project at work. i didnt talk to him at all yesterday but for maybe 2 minutes to yell at him and tell him what a horrible father/husband her is. and i havent spoken to him today at all.
his phone has no reception in the building he works in..and frankly, he sometimes puts work first and just doesnt "check in".
he is a great father..wonderful provider. im just..upset i guess.

i feel so alone sometimes..like now.
o.k. now im crying..
im leaving for school now...my dd is with her grandma. hopefully things will get better.
sometimes i feel like his work is a mistress that i am in constant competition with.
and i feel lonely alot.

alright..cheering up now......

Yep, this could be me, except my DH is military. I can't tell you how many times I've yelled at him over the phone for something over which he has no control.
