Get Involved and out of the house NEW
by: Misty From Hicksville, NC

I totally agree with Ice_Mistic.. Find something to do to occupy your time. It's ok to miss him. After 15 years, I still miss my husband very much. But as I stated in my story, I got involved with my community. Now That I have three children, they help keep me busy. It can work You just have to choose to make it work.

this is what I would do

Find your self a job. Get involved with the community, do Charity work, take up a hobby, knit preemie hats, anything. Keep busy, find ways that are inexpensive to do some self development.

Sitting around all day with no other interests but your husband is going to get lonely, and will lead to all sorts of crazy thoughts.

So my advice would be fill your day with all sorts of interesting things you can share with your driver when you talk on the phone or when he gets home time.

That way he is not worried about you, and you won't be worried about him being on the road. Good Luck...
