Is reapplying for a b-permit difficult after leaving CH for over 6 months?

I moved to Switzerland because my husband was offered employment here, and we both have b-permits. I may have to return to the US for up to a year for an opportunity that came up, but I'm worried that I'll have a hard time returning to CH. Someone told me reapplying for a b-permit after leaving for awhile is difficult.

If it's under family reunification it shouldn't be too difficult, but they'll probably ask why you left and why you now want to come back again.

Easiest way to deal with it if you can manage it is to go to the States for 5 months, come back here for a month and then do just under 6 months in the States so you're back here before you reach the 6 month limit. Or do just under 6 months first, then here for a month, then 5 months after that.
