blogging funk.

Well hello my dearest bloggers! I have not forgotten about you all must you know. However, I have found myself in quite a blogging funk lately. It's not that I don't have anything to write about, because I can find plenty to share.. but more of a time management issue. Ya see, hunting season is in full swing and our wedding is 8 months away and steadily counting backwards. Ohh, and nursing school you ask? It's coming along. Rather than having two days worth of classes it has now been moved to just Tuesdays with an online class. Which I am NOT complaining about whatsoever. I start my OB/Mother-Baby clinicals this week {Friday}! Soo, amongst class & studying, tidying up the house, spending time with the fella, hunting with Dad, and trying to organize/finalize a few wedding projects I just haven't found much time to sit down at the computer. Do know that I am reading and trying to keep up with you all on a fairly regular basis, even if I'm unable to comment on each new post! I'm still in dire search of this whole routine thing, and I just can't seem to get it in gear as of yet. But I'm working on it.

Onto a better subject, I finally got my first deer of the season Sunday afternoon! I loaded up my CAR and went hunting all by myself. I drove over to our hunting club {which I haven't hunted at any this year so far}, found a spot, parked my car, & climbed! I was a little paranoid knowing I was by myself, but I could clearly see my car from up in the tree. After sweating to near death, I happened to look up from playing on my phone and he was standing about 30 yards looking straight at me! Mind you this is the first deer I've seen all season and I've been going consistently since the end of September. I had never had the opportunity to shoot a black powder gun until then and didn't realize that once you shot a massive ring of smoke immediately appeared. I caught a final glimpse of him running off, but had no idea whether or not I even came close once I pulled the trigger. I got down about 7o'clock and found his track where he entered the woods. I began walking along the windrows and never saw even a speck of blood. I just kept walking to where I had last saw the glimpse of him and there he was lying a few rows to my right! YAY! I can now say that I don't need any guy to take me hunting! This here girl did it ALL by herself :)
