Bees – sorry but I am just having one of those days & need to rant!
My FI is a work-a-holic!! And I have a love/hate relationship with it! He owns his own company & works on average 27 days out of the month. Usually only getting a few days off when the weather is bad (usually during the week when I have to work of course!)
On one hand I am lucky because I do get to see him every night when he comes home but that is usually only for an hour or 2 at the most. He usually comes home at approx 6 pm, eats supper & than heads to his office to do paper work that goes along with running his own company (needs to send in reports everyday to the companies he consults for)
It’s very frustrating because I see all my friend & co-workers getting excited for the weekend to spend time with their families & SI’s. Where as I don’t get excited – weekends are boring to me. Just me hanging out at home alone! 🙁
I know things could always be worse & I know he is working so we can be financially stable & secur, but sometimes I just need to pout!

Chin up! Is there any way you can try to keep yourself busier on the weekends so that you can not think about him being at work so much? Start running or join a club or play a sport? I know it’s tough to keep yourself occupied, but I felt the same way when my husband was going to school. He would work full time and then when he got home, he would go straight to our office after dinner and study for the rest of the night. This was a nightly occurrance, and I had to find something to occupy my time.
I started running, and have completed a few 5Ks now! I also play on a slow-pitch softball team, so that helps too…

I try to keep busy.
I work 2 extra jobs, coach & play softball, and run/work out frequently! (Good job on the 5ks! I have ran tons of 10k & half marathons).
It still seems like I am always lonely….and I think it’s just because all my friends do “couple” things on the weekend – Always asking us over for BBQ, or golf, or camping etc. And we can never go.
I guess the only pro is I get a lot of “me” time!

I totally understand! And it sounds like you’re super active, so awesome! Would you feel uncomfortable going and hanging out with your friends without your FI since he’s working so much? Sometimes you just need some other interaction with people so you aren’t feeling so lonely!
