Right now, FH is a “senior” in his welding program at school and he`’s recently gotten an offer to do a shut down in Kentucky. The job will take 10 weeks, but at the end he will walk away with roughly $20,000 after taxes. It’s too good of an offer to pass up. The company is really well known and would really help him get his foot in the door after he graduates, so I’m very supportive. He plans to work the job then come back and finish school. He’ll also be able to take a leave of absence from his current job, so he will also be able to go back to his current job if he so chooses.
The thing is, in the three years we’ve been together, we’ve never gone this long without seeing each other and it makes me a little sad. I will have school to keep me busy for the most part, but I don’t have any friends or family nearby that I could spend time with when I get lonely. There’s also the fact that he would leave March 1 and he’d miss my birthday. Usually this wouldn’t bother me as I don’t really care about my birthday, but with him being gone, I won’t be doing anything at all. And it still sounds kind of dumb when I say it because we need the money, it’s a great job and he wants to do it, and I want him to do it because I know it will make him happy.
There’s not much for me to get involved in. I’m not really religious and most of the groups around here are church groups.
I guess my question is, how do Bees that have SOs that are gone a good bit for work stay busy?
