My SO just started trucking school to get his CDL. For the next 8 weeks I see him for an hour and half 5 days a week and in the evenings on Fri and Sat. He works full time 3rd shift and goes to school in the evenings before work and sleeps all day. Once he gets his CDL he will be driving a truck. We arent sure what kind of job he will take or what his schedule will be but I know that he will at least be gone for a week at a time maybe even 2 weeks and then home for a weekend. There is one job that is 7 days on 7 days off. I think that would be great but the pay is less of course so I doubt he will do that. I guess I am wondering how you handle it. How do your kids handle it?We are soooo broke now. I stay home, he works at a brake factory thru a temp service so the motivation behind him trucking is all about the money. It makes me sad though that he is and will be missing our dd growing up. She will be a year on May 30.
