hi all, i just want some advice... my husband came here may of 2009. He still has difficulty adjusting. I don't know what to do if he misses home or what. As I am busy with work, he stays at home and still looking for a job. Since no one has been calling him, it seems he is very depressed.

The more you love, the more you lose a part of yourself, yet you don't become less of who you are;

you end up being complete with your loved ones."

try blogging, it'll keep you busy and if you're good at it, you can earn money from it too.

hi

the first few weeks since i arrived here,i wanted to go home. I was very homesick,its kind of tough really specially when i been very close to my family back in PI. It was a heartache for my husband to hear from me that i wanted to go home,he understand though.

But i was still here :D,i keep thinking of my husband that hes the reason why i am here and you know it works and as time passes by i learned to endure.

Buy your husband a phone so he could communicate with his relatives in PI and a computer too. Or buy him anything that will keep him busy in a while say a book or a guitar.

I, too pray hard. You know it works too. I hope that he may find job soon.

:D

Three of the most important things in a man’s life are wine, women and recreation. So get yourselves a wine cooler for the merlot and chardonnay and stock up on Corona and Dos Equis. Then, subscribe to a premium channel that air skin flicks. Lastly, get him some fishing tackle and a set of Callaway clubs; he’ll be free and at ease in the great outdoors.

Disclaimer: These are my husband’s ideas and not mine!

Staying busy and being productive would be so good for him. Even a job restocking store shelves might be good for him. If he is having trouble finding a job maybe a vocational program at a community college would be good.
