Here is a bit of a different view. Mainly because I am a member of the y-chromosome minority here.
Your feelings are valid, however, unproductive. Your husbands job is stressful for you. But as today's business is, employees are required to travel more as markets have grown world-wide. I have had jobs in the past which required much travel. Be prepared, nothing will break (i.e. refrigerator, water line, furnace) until your husband is at the furthest place away from home. Also, he won't be able to return quick enough to fix whatever the problem is. Just prepare for it. Find a good plumber, electrician, roofer, etc.. now before the catastrophe hits. It is not required but it could be comforting to both of you to get an alarm system or a big dog.
Because of your husband's income and your work, you are able to provide your son with excellent daycare. That's a blessing.
You are working on an advanced degree which only 2% of all college freshman proceed onto. That is quite an achievement.
Your family is a team. Your husband's accomplishments belong to you, your son, and your husband. You all share in the reward because you all had a part in achieving it. Your graduation will also be an accomplishment for your husband, your son, and you. Your son's development though his life leading to a man who starts his own family based on what he was taught by you and your husband will be an accomplishment for you, your husband, and your son.
Your feelings are valid, and you should be able to discuss them with your husband. If he had not landed that account, he probably would have spoken to you about
it. But here's my tidbit of advice. If you feel down and want to discuss it with your husband, do not ask him to change his ways in order to change yours. Remember, you are not adversaries but a team and your goals are one and the same.
Keep in touch.

I used to be crazy, but now I have enough money to be called eccentric.
