Are any other trucker wives resentful?
I have read so many posts here and feel there is a strong gap. Either the stories are so full of how to stand tall and be a strong woman who for lack of a better term "serve your man" when he gets home.
On the other side I see such sad stories of betrayal, mistrust and anger.
I am wondering if anyone else feels resentment and if that will get better.
My newlywed husband (2nd marriage for us both) just began OTR 2 years ago. The once promised guaranteed "weekends off" have turned into maybe 36 hours off and if we are lucky it falls on the weekend.
I also work full time and I also am exhausted by the end of the week.
We speak on the phone often throughout the day and evening. Trust is not an issue at all. I am often surprised by my reaction upon my husband's return. I feel a tinge of resentment that he gets to catch up on sleep, emails, tv shows while I am cleaning up after a week of work and preparing for the next week of work, laundry and meals for my husband.
My question is how do those positive wives out there cope without feeling a big "let down" when hubby comes home and doesn't sweep you off your feet and spoil you for maintaining everything at home?
