Hi, I have a problem, I got myself a job 3 weeks ago which I love, the people are great and I really fit in as I am somewhat of an expert (ex-as in Has Been, and Spurt-as in Drip under Pressure) In horticulture. BUT My husband is really having a job dealing with being alone all day when we used to spend every hour in each others company. This job started out as part time, then last week full time, now this week overtime (7 days a wk 8 hr days) I know I am not physically or mentally ready for these hours..and so does he. The people I work for are not taking advantage of me and treat me with a great deal of respect, and we have deadlines, if certain things (potting on, pricking out...etc) are not done over the next week, plants will start damping off and be lost, so I understand the urgency, and why they need me there as much as they do..I'm a very fast transplanter and do about a thousand plants an hour. BUT my husband is going crazy here, every night I get home from a hard days work and he is drunk and just about ready for bed..I'm trying not to be judgemental but it's fairly soul-destroying.
What do I do?
Advice please. Thanks Jxxxxxxxxxx
