Been a crazy week, this has happened very fast. I accepted a new position today. Fun thing about that is my current employer has a sweet vacation policy. At the time of separation any unused or accrued time will be paid out at the employee's base rate salary.

So essentially I am getting a 3 week bonus when I bounce ... might have found my way to get a new bow ... just need to convince the ball and chain that I'm able to do so. Probably going to have to buy her something really nice to make up the difference. ;)

I'm almost positive that that is the law, not their sweet vacation policy. You earned the vacation so they have to pay you for it. Sick time, not so much.

If she knows about the 3 weeks pay, just tell her they took a lot out in taxes. If she doesn't know about it... head for the shop before she does. Good luck with the new job.

Hahha so true. Yeah she knows about it, I've already got plans for a compensatory gift for her. Still might need to pull some strings to make it happen, but we are also getting a pretty beastly tax return ... no way I could talk her into using that.

Good advice. I think the only main thing should would have a problem with ... aside from the money ... is that she just bought me my Cheetah for Christmas last year. I shot the living snot out of it all year, hunted with it and love it to death. Just like to get another toy. I'm sure I'll hang onto the Cheetah for personal reasons and I can imagine many people looking for an 07 Cheetah anytime soon.

i want lots of bows,at least 10.i just want to hang them on the wall and have to pic and choose what bow would i like to shoot today.of course i will allway have a bow just for hunting but it would be nice to loan a bow or try to get some other people into archery.my bengal will never leave me.

another way to go about it is to tell her she bought you a bow and now you get to buy yourself a bow.

the way i see it is all us men with with a wife need to stand up and law down the law every 5 or 10 years,ya know just to let the wifes know we are still here and not a giant blob of......yes deer..........yes honey.......what ever makes you happy wife.lol

I know for sure my dad would consider shooting mine and I would be happy to have him shoot it. He is shooter a super old Parker or PSE. He has another older Cheetah that I used to shoot actually, that could be a nice shooter for him, it is just a hair too long. It had a dual cam conversion on it, so not sure which they are for what modules would help that.

And I just deuced in my pants ... just did the math on my vacation payout and it will be around $5,600 before taxes ... :D

Well then that certainly shakes some things up a bit. I'm really planning on making this bow purchase go through, so that is something I could consider if everything plays out properly.

Well, I've pretty much settled on a deal for an Alien X - just got to wait for that check and get a payment out. I'll have to do some debating about if I want to sell the Cheetah, wouldn't rule it out I suppose.

I also just got a nice new job so I am in the clouds right now knowing how you feel. I was laid off from my 4 year job with the coal company on FEB 1st. On Feb 2nd a big chemical company called me to with them. Very good company to work for. Good pay, schedule, etc. Cant wait. My congrats. Its nice during some portions of the country and industry that are struggling there are still those are doing well and moving forward. Glad to hear you and I are one of them.

If all goes well it is D-Day! And congrats to you Jason. I was fortunate enough to have had my previous position for over 5 1/2 years and decided to leave on my own accord. Management changes were taking place that ultimately created a very toxic environment. I'm in my first week still at the new job, but can honestly say I enjoy this much more than what I recently came from so far. My first job was great for a long time, the management changes just started taking place in the past few months, so that is when it took a turn.

News at 11:00.Details: The driver said a masked man suddenly stepped out in the road with a drawn compound bow. The driver brought the truck to a stop, and by the time he realized what was going on, the masked man had taken a thin, long box out of the truck and ran off.

That's great, but I just got notice that the bow has been delivered! I'm dying to get home now, got 2 hours before I get out of here. Hope to have it unboxed in a timely fashion, check it all out and hopefully put some arrows through it tonight. Pictures of course to follow ;)
