Yay for the Small Things

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Well I wish I could say I busted through my plateau but no, that's not my news or small thing. I love to play golf. It's a passion that I've never gotten to fully invest in because it's so FREAKING expensive (did I say expensive?, yeah Expensive). Anyway the last time I played was a year ago, in between foot surgeries.

our company is a sponsor of a child advocacy center here in our county so we get two four man teams in a scramble coming up in two weeks. I played in it last year because one of my dear co-workers knew I played golf, but knew I couldn't afford it (because I told him I couldn't play in our other tournament because that was going to cost me, imagine this, husband was out of work then too) invited me. (Wow, I'm a writer and I know that sentence was fun to keep up with). Anyhoo, had a blast last year, played fairly well for someone who hasn't touched a club in three years and been on surgical hiatus.

Anyway, he sent out an email to all of those who might want to play again this year. I jumped right on it and THANKFULLY the guy in charge is letting me play. I'm so psyched. I hope the elbow doesn't cause an issue but I'm going to play. I get to play my favorite sport, eat a meal and have some camaraderie with co workers... and the BEST part..... WHEN we do the team pics.. I won't be trying to hide in the back to hide my fat bod!!!! It's not the perfect bod yet, but I'm starting to like it again.

Yay for the small things!!!

    Wonderful things golf and liking our own bodies. Love/hate is right in both categories. I love golf, too, but find it to be too expensive time-wise. We have a number of courses (small and not professional quality) that are fairly cheap, but I have no time to play....

    Congrats and getting to play and also coming to a point where you are not trying to hide yourself!

    Golf is a love or hate relationship. You either love it or hate it.. and sometimes when you love it and then hate it, one shot makes you love it again... No wonder it's such a challenging sport.. hahahahah
