Default Ever have one of those days?

So today should’ve been the day I hit the road for San Benito. I was drawn for the Laguna Atascosa bow hunt. I’ve been packed and ready for about three weeks now knowing it was going to possibly be my last chance to kill a buck this season, and then last week grandma passed away on Friday. Her services were scheduled for this Saturday, but I planned on seeing about possibly showing up Saturday night. Well this Monday came and work told me I’d have to take over a project 1.5 hours away since we had a guy quit and I wouldn’t be able to take off now anyway. Not looking for sympathy. Today sucks because I should’ve been scouting in Laguna and it’s all kinda creeping in. I could sure use a drink or 30.

Sucks for sure but.......maybe that's God saying there's a reason you need to be in town or at Grandma's funeral. Maybe a family member could use some support. I think about that sort of stuff when it feels like more than one thing is keeping me from doing something I want to do.

Good way to think about times like this.
Sorry for your loss.

What goes around comes around. One missed opportunity makes room for another. Hang in there, buddy. I have definitely had those days, weeks, months and empathize with you. And hell, if you're in the Dallas area, I'll grab a drink or 30 with ya!
