The Calm Before The Storm...

It is predicted to get up around 72 degrees here today, so where do you think I'm headed? Yes, the golf course, of course! After today we're supposed to be getting another cold front, so this is my only chance to get out and catch some rays of sunshine and see if I can still knock around the ridiculously small ball with a long, skinny club. Really, how (or even why) did someone ever come up with such a retarded game of sport? Everything about this game makes me feel awkward and somewhat inadequate, but still I persevere.


Each time I play a game of golf I'm faced with the possibility of having a great round or a lousy round, with the latter being the more prevalent in my world. No telling what surprises today may hold for me, but it's always good to get out in the fresh air. My mantra is: Any bad day on the golf course is still better than a good day at the office. Forget the fact I don't work in an office. It's still a good mantra, right?


So, Bloggy Friends, I must apologize for not using today to catch up on everyone's blogs. Cold weather will return soon enough and I'll be hunched over my computer, insatiably reading your blogs once again. I've been stuck in the house for what seems like weeks, looking after Snooty Daughter and I need to get out for a while. She had more doctor appointments and blood tests yesterday, and will see yet another doctor today. All of her close friends have left except for one. Luckily, her one friend is a guy and she is going out with him on New Year's Eve. His Dad is throwing a huge party at the country club, so she's going with him.


Since she didn't bring any cocktail dresses or heels with her, we spent the remainder of the afternoon yesterday, shopping. We finally found her an adorable black cocktail dress and the cutest red flats ever. So, she's set to go.


Random question: What in the Hell made me think I looked cute in this golf outfit? I haven't got a clue. It just makes me look fat. Ugh!


Anyway, after today I will be back to my regularly scheduled whinings and musings, I promise! It's the calm before the storm and I need to grab what I can, while I can.

I'm so glad y'all are having fun! And, that SD is getting to go out!

I'm sure she thinks the shopping in Midland is subpar to what she's become accustomed to in that large town!

Y'all have a great New Years!

Did you really call golf a "retarded game of sport?" SNOOTY!! ;)

I'm SOOOOOOO jealous, but happy you got to play. Hope it was nothing but fairways and greens. BTW, the outfit is fine, so is that beautiful compact back swing. I'm impressed. I hope mine looks that good by spring.

Can't wait to hear more about the outing!

My grandma reads your blog and sent me the address so I'm stopping by to say hi. I am totally jealous....it was in the 70's where you are the other day?!?! I'm from WI and it was a whopping 9 degrees here yesterday!

Happy New Year!
