What Are You Doing?!? (this fall)

so what did your wife say when you told her this???  

She was aware of my stance on this since I've known her.  I'm not subtle about it.  I'd rather speak the truth than lie about until I die.

 

Life goes on Mike.  I still have my health and the ability to sit in a deer stand for the upcoming season.

I have no problem with Gimruis' thoughts on this. IMO there is no shame in expressing regret over past decisions. It doesn't mean that he loves his kids any less.

 

My brother-in-law had four unplanned kids with his wife. I know that he regretted those decisions but he loved those kids unconditionally until the day he died a few years back. I saw no conflict there either.

my 3 kids were all unplanned too!!!!!! and when they come 2 at a time.......🤔🙄

 

he used the word regrets!!!! maybe i'm hung up on that, not sure. did i regret having kids....no.....did i wonder what the heck i got myself into......... oh hello yea!!!!!!! never regretted though. i am convinced that taking care of kids when i was that young more then likely kept me from getting into more trouble then i did!!!!!!!

 

yea i missed out on alot of stopping for a beer after work..........that kind of thing...........missed some fishing and hunting opportunities......and getting toys earlier.........

 

however....i give Gimruis all the credit in the world for hanging in there and doing whats right!!!!👌 some would just walk away. and i've read his posts enough to think someday he'll be glad he had kids!!!!!!!

Thank you.  That is exactly how I feel about it.  I'm sure many of you thought it seemed cold and heartless when I initially posted it.  I'm kind of a cold hearted kinda guy anyways lol, but I have a job to do and I will continue to do it unconditionally, even if I regret some of it.  I don't take any offense to someone else's opinion on it either that was directed at me so post away.

 

I would also like to add that my Grandfather, who died of cancer in 2012, spent many hours with me growing up hunting and fishing.  Before he died he told me that quality of life is measured by the amount of time you have to do what you enjoy doing.  I've never forgotten that.

Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.

 

I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.

 

I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

I can live with that...  as you I was expressing my thoughts too..   been thru enough in my life..   good luck...

Same here 11 years ago, two stints, lost weight, changed jobs to a more active one with less stress of being in Mfg management for 28 years and a lot more tread-mil and walking. I think I've pulled or helped pull out 5-6 deer since.  I'm still in the game!  Good Luck!  👍

Big suggestion for anyone 55 or older.  Carry a little pill bottle with a few full strength bayer aspirins with you, if you are out in the woods or a long ways from help by yourself.  I know it saved my brother-in-law who ended up having a heart by pass once they got him in, the doctor told him that's what saved him.   We are all superman, until our hearts say we an't! 🏋️‍♀️

Isn't it supposed to be low dose aspirin? Glad you're still with us 👍

Wow - good to hear that you're all doing well. Heart attacks are no joke. If I remember, the sooner you can get to a doctor in those situations the better the chance of surviving.

They suggest people in our age group should take a low dose daily. But if it maybe a heart attack you want to hit with what ever you have as fast as you can. 👍

So do I and they generally call them baby aspirin. Usually 81 mg.

 

I didn't till I had my bypass surgery in 2011.

Same here with the lawn today. Have today and tomorrow off to get snow fence up, everything winterized and just general honey do list done. 

Smurfy, there’s got to be a special place in heaven for a dad with 3 in diapers on his own, I had same (2 year old and twins born) but thankfully a great wife as well. Can’t imagine doing it on my own.

Just had my annual physical last week, and clean bill of health, but at 59 years old and all this talk of heart issues and  stints is scary. Just got to live life to the fullest. My wife’s boss is going through it right now down at Mayo Clinic.
