We've been married almost 2 months. My dad and grandfather were both truckers. My family lives 45 minutes away and no one will make the drive to visit. I drive to see them once every 2 months. It does get lonely and I work 3 days a week.He goes out 7 or 8 days then is home for 1 or 2 days. The whole time planning for his next trip back out. We don't have kids. We do have 2 dogs that need my attention as they are high energy dogs. But im going stir crazy!!!! So I understand your frustration. Im not sure what to do either. My fibromyalgia keeps me from doing too much. The dogs and work are enough for me physically but I need friends to do things with. We moved here a little over a year ago and I hate it. Just bidding my time for now til we move again somewhere we can have a yard and privacy! Meaning...im not laying out in a bathing suit with neighbors that live right on top of us!!lol I don't look bad in a bathing suit im just a little shy about it. Anyway, I can feel your desperation, your not alone!

reason with him NEW
by: Anonymous

ask him to ride along with him and dont worry him about getting a cdl, just ask to ride along...see if you like it or not....then get a job if you want to and if you don't want to let him know you do not want a job...if he doesnt like it well tell him to help get your cdl so you can go drive on your own... thats a job right?
