Default I am new at this too!

My husband just started driving (two weeks ago). While he was away at school, I decided not to do anything different. He came home and said, "It's like I wasn't even gone!:" I don't think he liked it. So this time, when he left for 2-3 months, I changed the living room around, so when he comes home for Christmas, I wander what his reaction will be.

Default This is what makes me crazy!!

Hi All,
I wonder if any of you have this problem My husband has been a OTR for 8 yrs. When he first left, I had a bit of a time adjusting to becoming the "everything" person. I had to do all the stuff I normally did and now I have to do all the stuff he normally did too. I finally got it all worked out and guess what?? He comes home and tries to jump back into his old routine and really messes me up. LOL I love him more than life but it is almost like moving in with a new person every time he comes home again...

Sounds familiar :lol:

The important thing is to not worry about 'you' when he's there, and focus on him. They put up w/ loads of bs out there- and if doing his old routine at home is what he wants, then let him. He needs a mental break, so be very understanding and supportive. :wink:

Default New to this

I'm new to being a truck drivers wife. Does it get easier? I'm not really use to being away from him now we are apart and I'm a full time mother. Thank you for the help and words of encouragement.
