So I may just look for some varmint/predator hunts this year.

It's amazing how quickly you forget the true priorities in life, I got so caught up in my job that I failed to take time out for the family. Now I'm just enjoying it all, flag football, cub scouts, dance practice.

In regards to my plan....well, I do need a job and have been looking around but things in my particular industry and for my level are slow. I have an offer from an long time acquaintance who opened up an independent insurance agency and I am seriously thinking of taking him up on it.


Bet your fellow lease members appreciated being hung out to dry.


Well, good thing I believe in open and honest communication and kept my buddy informed the entire time(even before my decision) so that he knew everything that was going on. Also, good thing the lease is already paid for and part of his budget so my portion is just extra. Also, its a good thing that I told him I would still pay the amount even though I would not hunt. I hold to my commitments and I'm not a big fan of screwing people over but thanks for the confidence, buddy.

There's nothing better than having your own self- respect. Other than hanging out with your wife and children,and having your self respect. You know if you did the right thing,you'll feel it in your heart. I think you did it!

Congrats, Spud! I used to drive trucks for a living with a disabled wife and two grandkids at home. Staying on the road for 5-8 weeks at a time will make you realize how quickly things change when you're not there to see them every day. Don't worry about the haters, they will always find something to hate on, just enjoy spending time with the family while you can. Work to live, don't live to work.

I don't think the decision is out of line. You do have to weigh all of the options. I had a job that was way too stressful for the pay that I quit cold turkey. My wife and I discussed it prior to giving notice. Several of my friends commented on I seemed happier after the decision.

Congrats! It takes a big man to take a step back from the fire and understand the truth of the flame. Life will throw curveballs but family is one that comes straight at you. Knowing and understanding what is more important at this point is what counts.

You did the right thing. Not knowing you, but reading what you wrote, at least your family will not be seeing your grave on the weekends. That level of stress is not good for anyone.

The Great Lord even made Sundays for rest and relaxation "Well hunting/fishing/Sports" so we all need the believe in the right things.

Before you know it your kids will be out the door and you will have not fill the moments in your life to help you get through the rough times. These are what I call memory moments. When you are sitting on a park bench can you close your eyes and be filled with comfortable memories of your family? The times you got to hold your kids or listen to their laugh? Nothing like hearing the silly jokes of the kids... Then finding yourself telling that same joke to your buds and laughing..

Good luck on your new adventure.....

Thank you Lord for providing us in the spiritual and physical aspects of our lives. You have given plenty of game for us to feed our families and pass on the heritage. God Bless Texas
