One Step Forward and Ten Steps Back

Just when things are starting to take a step forward, they make a u-turn.
I had the IUD taken out and was feeling so much better. Things were going great between me and the hubby.(Best it has been in a long time.) We had just discussed and agreed to start TTC for #3 and we were all happy for once. Then hubby decides to stop taking classes online and go back to in school.
I so dont want him to go back. I am so afraid everything will go back to how it was. It wouldnt be so bad besides the fact the he works full time already. When he goes to school he will be gone 3 nights a week on top of that. Plus its an hour drive to school. That means that he will leave and 8 in the morning for work, come home at 4 long enough to grab a bite and head out. Then he wont get home from school until midnight or one.
I have tried to tell him my worries, but he [thinks] he has a solution for everything. I just want us to be able to be a family. I feel like I am a single mom while he does school. I dont want him to miss out on his kids life. I just dont know what to do any more.


  1. I understand you completely. Anthony and I did this for a couple years. He would go to school during the day and then work 2nd shift. I would only see him for about a hour each day. It was tough not seeing him but we made it. It was something he had to do to help our family. The majority of that time we didn't have children though so that made it a little easier. Is it possible for him to continue to take all the online classes he can first and then start going? Definitely talk to him about it.

  2. We have talked and talked. Now, we are just fighting. He doesnt listen. He is set on doing it his way. We have already done the hour drive thing for 2 years and it didnt work for us.

  3. I'm saying a prayer for you & your hubby. I hope you can get things worked out. I know all to well most men are set in there own way. HUGS & PRAYERS

  4. I'm sorry Ivy. I hope that things work out for the best for the 4 of y'all! Why doesn't he want to do online classes anymore?

  5. He doesnt think he can do them. He says he can't learn that way. He doesnt try is his problem. He goes into it thinking he cant.
