Oh that’s so tough!  My husband travels a lot for work plus we are both in the process of getting our masters so we don’t have a lot of free time together.  I’m glad that we don’t have kids now though, that must be really hard.

Mr. E used to work so much (along with school).  He would sometimes work double shifts because people wouldn’t come in and that was really hard for me.  He would be gone from 6:30 am and not get back till 11 pm.  It’s gotten a lot better since he has cut down the work hours (because he is taking more classes).

I hope that things get better with his work schedule!

Don’t feel horrible for being upset. That’s completely normal! You’re not selfish, you’re just in love!

It’s awesome that he got a promotion. And it sounds like he loves what he does. And I am willing to bet that some of this stress is because the promotion is new and he is still getting used to things.

As this is still so new, try to be patient a bit longer. Things might calm down, a little at least.

But at the same time, it’s not okay for his job to interfere with your relationship or with his ability to be a parent. So while it’s best for you to be supportive and patient right now, don’t feel like things have to be this way forever, because they don’t.

I can relate a bit. There are certain times of year that require my Fiance to work until 10 PM three nights a week and all day on Saturday. I don’t like it, but it does give me some time to take care of things for me, see friends, etc. I’ve tried to find little projects that I can accomplish because at least if I am productive, I feel a little better.

Hang in there, hun!
