You Know You Are a Real Oilfield Wife When…
You have to blow dust off your razor the day before your husband is due home… it’s been THAT long since you shaved your legs. In North Dakota and Canada, we also keep the leg hair long for warmth during the long winters. Right?
You go day after day with no interaction with other adults.
Your laundry pile is comparable to Mt. Everest.
You have your calendar planned out in “days on” and “days off”. Which doesn’t really matter, because you end up with big squiggly sharpie lines when your husband’s schedule changes or he starts work with a different company.
You vent on Facebook because you have no other friends that can relate to the lifestyle. Or you start a website devoted to oilfield wives.
You are definitely a Real Oilfield Wife when you subscribe to have ROW delivered directly to your inbox!
