I am entering my 2nd year of nursing school and my husband has been told that he has to go on a job that is out of town. He leaves Mon morning and comes home Sat evening. When he asked if he could stay in a local job, they gave him a ton of grief. Last year, while I was in school, he had a similar situation, but was home on Fridays. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind. My hubby has been my biggest supporter when dealing with getting through school. I depend on him so much to help with the kids in the evening. I don't mean to sound like such a downer, but I really don't know how I'm going to make it through without him around. All of our family lives 600 miles away. I can hardly afford a sitter (hence...a small reason why I'm going to school). Has anyone else dealt with a similar situation? And how did you make it through? I'm open to advice. And quitting is not an option. Thanks for hearing my vent session.
