Just needed to vent a little. I'm getting slightly tired of hunting season already... and it just started! My husband is a fanatic, scratch that, he's addicted! He's been gone every weekend since mid August (just about) and usually leaves friday and comes home Monday... then complains when I want to take a weekend away or a vacation later in the year because he's saving all of his vacation for freaking hunting season! I'm so frusturated! So he finally gave in and is going to stay home to spend some quality wife time this weekend, but last night during dinner, one of his buddies called, my phone by the way!, to ask if he could go hunting tonight, I got a little pissed cause I had a nice dinner planned and was getting off early so I could actually cook tonight, but he also had said he was taking a break for a week so I didnt hurt him for leaving so much. This was something that came up in our pre-marital counceling, that he hunts too much (last year he was gone over 60 days in just over 3 months!!!) and he promised to cut it down to just 2 seasons instead of 5, yea, as soon as we were married he said he was only saying that to get through the sessions and get me off his back, I was pretty pissed, but figured we could work out a compromise. yea, hasnt happened, instead he put in for an early season hunt, which he was drawn for, and he's already shot his deer, now he wants a elk, and a bear, and even a freaking cougar! then it's duck season, which I cant argue with that much because our dog is a bird dog and she loves it too much, and he's only gone in the mornings. I really try to be reasonable, but when I have to cancel stuff because he plans a last minute hunting trip, it's frusturating. and I also feel really hurt because he basically makes it seem like he'd rather go hunting all the time than spend time with me. I do go with him sometimes, but I cant kill an animal, i've tried to psych myself up for it, but I still get really upset watching his videos and stuff... so I just dont try, and he doesnt push me to. I go camping all summer so he can scout, and I hike with him to look for animals, but he likes to go 15 miles a day through the mountains... thats not for me. I just hope he tones it down for the rest of the year, I cant take too many more weekends alone... there is only so much I can plan!!
That is my rant, I have vented, I appreciate being able to post this and get my frusturations off my chest. Thanks!
