My husband just got a new job that will mean he will be gone for 3 weeks at a time on the regular. I SAH and at his previous job, his site would go on lockdown a lot during the fall so he would often leave before we are up and come home directly after the girls go to bed but he is still usually home on weekends. This new job will be all me, all the time. As I've mentioned before, I really struggle to stay on budget/but what we actually need when I grocery shop with the girls so I do generally depend on DH to be home so I can grocery shop but that will obviously not be an option anymore either. He will be home for a week or two after every hitch though. How do you keep sane when your SO is gone? How do you keep sane when your SO is home for a week or two straight and "interrupts" your schedule? Give me ALL your tips!!
