I’m going to be real here for a minute
Today, yet again, is the day I send my husband off for hitch
Something we do every week
But this time hit me really freaking hard
Maybe it’s because I’ve been begging time to slow down all damn day. Begging that it could just stop for even an hour.
Maybe it’s because my husband went to the store to make sure I had our “necessities” to make my life easier. (Diapers, wipes, formula, milk, ya know the basics)
As an oilfield wife or a wife of a man in a profession that requires him to leave for long periods of time... You’re expected to be strong.
All. The. Time.
Let me just tell you that isn’t the case this time.
I kissed him goodbye while holding back sobbing. Ya know when you have to like hold your breath and you feel it in your stomach? That feeling.
As I closed the door I did so with a smile on my face and said drive safe let me know when you make it to the work house.
But behind the door?
Yet again, I held back tears because I didn’t want my babies to see me crying or upset.
So I walked to the bathroom and I lost it. I cried into this towel for probably 5 minutes.
I asked God to bring me strength and to make sure my husband makes it safe.
Being an oilfield wife is great... I mean we have really nice possessions. But you won’t see very many pictures of us on trips, or family outings.
Because they just don’t happen often.
So while I’m wholeheartedly grateful for what my husband does for us. Because I know it isn’t easy on him either.
This. Freakin. Sucks.
So as I’m sure your husband will annoy you tonight, I just want you to remember there’s a lot of us wives who wish our husbands were home to bug the ever living shizzz out of us. .
