My SO works out of town as well so I feel your pain! Once you see his face all those feeling disappointed feelings will go away! You will be too happy to see him! Don’t worry:)

Eh I feel you ! I work OOT Monday through Friday so I’m only home for (at best) 48 hrs a week.  My husband doesn’t get mad at me if I’m late getting in but then he is a guy, I was on an assignment that was 30 min from my sister’s house and I am very close to her and my adorable 2 year old Niece so I took advantage of visiting as much as I could.  He would give me a little attitude if I got in late Fridays if I had been visiting my family.  I tried to explain how much it meant to me to be able to spend the time with then since I hardly ever get to normally.  (she lives 3 hrs away ).

When my FI and I were long distance (5hrs apart), I too would have all this awesome romantic stuff planned for when he arrived at my place.  It used to really put me in a funk and totally deflate my enthusiasm whenever he’d call and tell me that something came up and now he’ll be arriving hours later than we’d originally planned for him to arrive. (he had arrived after 3am on more than one occassion when he should’ve gotten here at 6 or 7 pm)  So I really get how you feel.  The only thing that helped me was to see the overall big picture, and stop focusing on the hours that were lost in the new schedule change.  The first few times I used to get sssooo upset that it kept me from fully enjoying our time and after awhile I realized I was the one who was causing us to lose more of our quality time together by being in a funk mood.

I know how depressing and disappointing it is that your DH’s change in time has cost more hours.  But seriously, focus 100% on the fact that you DO get to spend time together and put all your energy back into making those QT hours count when he arrives.  Just know that this separation will not last forever, so really enjoy & take advantage of this time apart & being able to “miss each other.”  It makes for some amazing “I missed you” sex that you can never have when you live together.  🙂
