with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My regular/day job sees me working in an office 30 minutes away from home. That job is finished April 30th, and I will be working from home again (YAY!), come May 1st. It’s been a rough couple of years for us, as my husband works in our small town and, (because he is awesome, and) he’s dealt with all of the extra-curricular activities. I talked about this in my last post, but some interesting developments have happened since then.
An email exchange with my college roommate (and one of my best friends EVER) has me, right now, sitting in there home, and about to work for her husband for this next week. He is a sole practitioner with a growing client base and my (soon to be former) firm is WAY overstaffed.
So, I’m many miles and two plane flights from my husband and kids. I’m excited to catch up with my friends (It’s been SEVEN YEARS), but I miss my family. I love how this work/friend opportunity popped up, but I know that I could not do this on a regular basis. It would be the same if my husband were away a lot for work.
I have a lot of friends (and family!) who are in the military, or who work in northern communities in order to make a good income while their family is back in their hometown.
Have you or your spouse worked out of town? How do you handle the balance and the transition to and from being together?
