Dazed and confused

I was raised in the trucking industry. My father was an OTR driver for 15 years. I was the oldest of his five children. I thought I knew what to expect when my husband came home and said he wanted to drive for a living. I was all game for it, even helped pay for it!!!
He started off great. He loved the open road. I on the other hand got dumped with all three kids, pets, and household responsibilities. Also working 60hr weeks at an automotive assembly plant.I felt like a circus juggler.
I resigned my job after a few months, and became a SAHM. That was all fine and dandy since my husband was able to come home on weekends. It still didn't bother me.
But then it started, every time I called he was upset and stressed. Some of the problems were other drivers on the road, four wheelers, bad roads, GPS probably, and etc.
Now he is steadily becoming more impatient with me, and makes me feel as if everything is my fault if I cannot understand...what can I do?
