Holidays, Time Off, and Going Hunting
Every year, at Christmas time, my company shuts down for a week. Not only does this bless me with precious time with my family, but it also gives me some time to help fill my A31 deer tag. The season closes on December 31, so it is now crunch time folks! 

Between the repainting and designing of my daughters room, doing my honey-do's and relaxing I will be filling the gaps with hunting. It is supposed to start raining here again late on Tuesday, which sucks. Will that stop me? No. Will I be looking to hit snooze? Possibly, but I won't. I will be taking advantage of at least two and possibly three days to hit the woods and try to fill my tags. While I do have some meat in the freezer (all given to me by friends or family), I would like to fill the rest up with an animal I have killed this year. I only have five days to do it, but I thrive under pressure and I am looking forward to the challenge.

Day 2 of my Catalina Trip (Day 1 is here) is coming this week along with a few product reviews. I am hoping with my time off that I will be able to blog a bit more and get some more writing done. The bad thing about blogging, having a full-time job and an energetic family is that I am always putting pressure on myself to post more. I'll be honest, I feel like I owe it to everyone to stay on my toes and keep things rolling. This week I will try to write some more, but I am going to put some of my energy into other things and keep the pressure off of my brain, if that makes any sense at all.

I hope you all have had a Merry Christmas, have been able to spend time with family and if you do have tags left to fill... that you have the opportunity to get out and fill them. I am off to wash the camo, go through my gear list and check the weather. The anticipation is killing me!


  1. Best of luck to you in the field! (and at home. As the maker of a honey-do list myself, I know how they can just grow and grow and grow! lol!)Have fun and hunt safe!

  2. Thanks, Kari. We started by picking out the colors today for my daughters room. Right now I am looking at getting out in the woods for two days and so far the wife is all on board. Whoo-hoo! Going over the list of to-do's and the week is looking great!
