Tonight is proving difficult. My Husband managed to come home for a visit over the weekend, but I really have no idea when he'll be here again; rumor is October 7th, or sometime shortly thereafter.   It was wonderful having him home, but...now he's gone again, and today I seem to be entirely forgotten. No text messages, no emails, no returned phone calls. He's usually better about contacting me -somehow- everyday, and yet....he's like he got his "fix" so it doesn't occur to him to be a bit more considerate? I don't know.   I know this is proving to be incredibly hard, and it's only going to get worse. If I anyone reads this and doesn't know, my Husband is military and gone 75% of the time now.    I also know he isn't going to talk to Steven (name changed) about switching positions. Doing so would allow him to be home almost all the time, but he loves his current job...and the travel...so I just know in my heart he isn't going to actively persue that as a possible solution.    He comes home and I try my very best to be as happy as I can, and I think it works against me; instead he thinks I'm doing better than I am, so finding a remedy for the situation isn't as dire as it actually is.  I cannot win.

Oh your hubby is military...WOW! I cannot imagine how tough that has got to be for you! My boyfriend is gone alot working in frisco and comes home about every 3rd week and even that drives me nuts! I KNOW...people say, look you knew he traveled when you met him, which is true, but it doesn\'t make it any easier!

I am almost always online sometime during the day or evening so feel free to email me anytime... we can be miserable together!!!! Hang in there darlin

Thank you so much for your reply, dazedandconfusedd! I get that a lot, myself, \"oh, you knew the lifestyle when you got with him.\"

Well, in my defense, what sounded exciting at 16 has proven to suck at 23!

I read in you discussion thread that jobs are hard to come by, but how about a volunteer position of some sort. Anything to keep you busy so that you don\'t feel so alone. Hospitals, schools, retirement homes...there must be something in your area. Just a thought. Good luck.

I\'d like to donate time at the local Habitat for Humanity, or some other charity organization. Thank you for the suggestion, 72407 =)
