Rants N Raves

Okay, so I had a tiny meltdown this morning while driving to work with my husband. We carpool to save gas, plus its nice for us to have time for Adult Discussion.
My husband has a good high school friend who does some guiding, and taxidermy. He mentioned taking me out for a boar hunt, which would be my first EVER. The thought of it makes me want to jump up and down!!!
Hubby has assured me that he will set something up. But here is my complaint. My children are young and I love them to pieces. However, its healthy for Mama to get out on her own once it a while to pursue a dream I have had for a few years now. I would Love to be able to go with my husband. I want to be able to have him there to support me, and be proud of me. He was there on my first pheasant hunt, and it was awesome.

Our problem is that we dont have any family here to take care of the wee ones while we are shootin it up. Mine is all up in Alaska, and Texas, and Nevada. Hubby's sister is in Idaho. My in laws live right around the corner, but they are their late 60's and dont have the energy to run around after a three and six year old all the time. They do watch them from time to time, but I feel uncomfortable asking because I know it takes alot out of them.

When Hubby goes to hunt...he doesnt need me there for support, and sometimes I wonder If a girl is allowed in a mans hunting camp. The talk around the fire can be funny....but you know how guys can get. question to all the ladies out there in my situation....what do you do? I can hunt by myself. But I am sooo very new at this, and would love to have my husband by my side on my first few hunts. Do I take the kids? What if they ask to go potty? Or what if they get tired, or hungry...or bored, and whiney.  Is it even safe to take small kids boar hunting? I heard they were pretty nasty when pissed off. Besides that, I wouldnt be able to concentrate.

Hubby says he will take me up to go hunting, and watch the kids while I go out. So, I get to hunt, but not the way I want. That is better than nothing, and I should stop whining. I am getting to do what I want, Right?

Just Curious if anyone else has had this situation, and what did you do about it, and how did it make you feel?

Honestly...I feel better now. Thanks for Listenting.
