    • My Husband is gone normally for 3 1/2 weeks and is home for 3 days before going back out. It is definitely not an easy lifestyle. But I do what I have to do.

    • I wasn’t married to a long distance truck driver, but a workaholic and spent a lot of years on my own. I found things to do here at home... home improvement projects, repairs, etc and I decided to learn to play violin, so I can relate to being married to a long distance truck driver or a marine engineer. (And lucky not to have children too.)  It’s challenging! I
      hope the best for you ladies.  

      Happy Anniversary, Victorious!
