He wants to stop OTR to be at home with family but...
(athens ga )
My husband and i have been together for 5 years. however we have just married in February of 2015. we are expecting our first child in april (thats right only married for about 4-5 months when we got pregnant).
Anyway, I stood by my driver this whole time. i was with him when he was a farm hand, a welder, and now he has started a career in trucking. i've been with him a few hours on each job, i've never seen his passion and fulfillment at a job like i did when we rode together.
He drives OTR M-F and home on the weekends, his company is Very family oriented. I love the benefits, understanding and security that comes from his current company. Having our first little one he is scared he will miss everything while he is gone. He is wanting to quit for the simple fact of being worried about missing a memory with our daughter.
I want him home more than he will ever know. i watched him build himself from high school. i stood by him on the nightshirt jobs at the shop. the only time i used to have with him is the time we slept together at night when he came home (on day shifts) with his current company he is home on the weekends all day. that's more time than he thinks. i want him to be happy, but i cant watch him walk away from a company he worked so hard to be apart of.
I feel like he needs to put more trust in me. i wont let him miss anything. He will have a video, a picture, he will be there for every big memory, every big milestone. what do i do? if he just jumps and changes to a local job, he wont have as much time home as he thinks, and he will miss more during the weekends he works also.... what do i do?!
i don't ever want to shoot down his ideas and goals, but he has worked ENTIRELY too hard to just walk away out of fear of missing a memory.
