Juggle between fireman and trucker wife
I am a fireman in a big city and work part time at the local fire house. My wife just graduated school and got a job with wcd trucking. They said 2 days out 2 in which I was ok with.
However the first 2 weeks she wasn't home due to training, third week out almost a week but home for a day before I went back to work 24hrs. Now she's gone and won't be home till at least Monday or Tuesday.
I asked her to try to ask her dispatcher if she can be home on a day I am off from both jobs. We have a 2 year old who hasn't been away from mom in 2.5 yrs. How do I cope with the schedules and not being able to see her.
I was used to her being home when I was during those 2.5 yrs also. And now I hardly ever talk to her. When I try to ask her to be home or we need family time the answer I get is stop being whiney and she is the rookie she has to go all the time.
She likes to text.
