So... DH is a truck driver. He works reeeeeally long hours. Like, he leaves the house at 3am and doesn't get home until 7/8 usually. He scarfs down some dinner and goes to bed about an hour later.
Good news: HE LOVES HIS JOB. And it pays well. And he's at least home every night (Although not for long).
He works five days a week and, sometimes (but not often), they need him on Saturdays.
His supervisors love him and they are trying to talk him into a new route. His company recently picked up a restaurant chain throughout the country. The route they want DH to take is Tennessee.
So, um, at first, I was all HELL NO. I do not want him to be an on-the-road truck driver and gone for days at a time. But then he explained to me that he would leave Monday morning, stay the night in Tennessee, come home Tuesday afternoon. He would be OFF on Wednesday, drive back to TN on Thursday and come home Friday afternoon. Off on weekends.
Also, the pay is... ridiculous. As in, he would double his income just about.
My mom thinks we're crazy for "discussing" this instead of just doing it, but you guuuuuys. I would miss him so much those two nights a week! That is really the only hold-up. I would just miss the hell out of him.
Is missing your husband for two nights worth the pretty awesome schedule and money?
I have died every day waiting for you. Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years. And all along I believed I would find you, time has brought your heart to me. I have loved you for a thousand years. I'll love you a thousand more.
