Freaking out and training hasn't started yet...
by Mrs. Moss
I'm 4 months pregnant and have a 4 year old daughter. My husband has been talking about driving trucks for the last few years. I want him to do what makes him happy but I have some concerns.
I'm not so much worried about him being on the road, I'm worried about how I will keep it all together. Right now, I work 3rd shift which is horrible and I only work this shift for the pay. My hubby takes care of our daughter while I sleep or do schoolwork during the day and she's usually asleep before I head to work at night.
He wants to leave next month to start training and will be gone for 17 days then on the road for 9 months after that. I simply am not able to stay up all day then work overnight and we cannot afford childcare right now (another reason why hubby is so eager to start).
The thought of this is scary and overwhelming and I seriously have no idea what to do. I've been searching for a daytime job but nothing has come through yet and I don't want to just quit my job because all the details of his training and pay have yet to be thoroughly discussed or finalized.
We have no family where we live to help us through this time and I am completely at a loss.
What should I do?
