So I decided to comprise a list of tips for new trucker-wives and how to handle the transition easier. This list can also be useful if your significant other has any job away from home.
Last week I discussed the importance of being flexible This week I will continue on with this series and talk a little about spending quality time together.
So here goes, tip #4...
4. Plan out your time spent together!
It is always nice to have something to look forward to do together when your husband is home. Plan your time so you get the most out of it since the two of you do not get to spend a lot of time together.
If it has been awhile since the two of you have had time "alone", find a sitter and plan a date together. If your kids are missing their daddy more this week, plan a trip to the playground with daddy so they are excited all week instead of sad about him being away.
Useing what little time you have in the most efficient way will help keep your relationship smooth sailing despite the constant distant between you.
make your time together more enjoyable.
This week we are planning to go to a local cash bash picnic and then take our little one to the movie's to see the new EPIC movie! What plans do you have with your trucker this weekend?
