    Gone a Lot

    Hi there, my husband and I have been married 1 1/2 years. He travels all over the US for his job. I am actually OK with the travel, but recently I have been very lonely, which is odd. I volunteer, and work part-time to keep myself busy here at home...but I miss someone...

    Always On the Road

    My hubby travels about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks out of the month.  Strange we get along better when he is on the road than when he is home. There have been a few times when I've gone with him and it has been nice. It really doesn't bother me that his job takes him away so much...
