I completely understand - my DH is a pilot. He's gone ALL the time!
He's been flying for the airlines almost 3 yrs now. You would think I would be used to it, but I'm not. We've had to move twice because of his job - although I like Texas! - but I am alone a lot. But I will admit it is nice to have the bed to myself sometimes! :happydancing:And now our animals think of just me as their primary caretaker instead of both of us. It makes me feel needed, but I think it kinda upsets him that they turn to me when they're upset or sick instead of him.
PS - But the travel benefits are a BIG perk!!
