I am just thankful to be healthy.  

Today is one year to the day that my appendix ruptured.  First hospital misdiagnosed me and was released 3 days later.  A week later I found myself in a different hospital.  Finally got everything under control.  Lost 20 lbs (I was only 155 lbs to begin with).  

With all of the testing and procedures I had, I found a great group of doctors that helped me identify some longer term issues I have been dealing with and I was formally diagnosed with Crohn's disease.  I am now receiving the appropriate medication and my quality of life is better than it has been in years.

Everything I went through gave me a new perspective on life and what was important to me and how I am going to carry myself.I joined a gym, I am working out regularly and I am in the best shape of my life.  I am being the best father and husband I can be.  I am working my ass off at my job while maintaining a great work/life balance.  I am actually taking steps to getting better at golf rather than just saying I want to get better at golf.

It was a crazy year for me, but right now I am living my best life and I will continue to do so.

Wow...I know it was a trying summer and fall for you. So glad to hear things are much better!   Congrats.

Very happy - Found out that the VP backed out of the golf outing at Bandon Dunes, so I have an all expenses paid trip out there to play in April.  Will be playing Pacific Dunes and Bandon Dunes courses.  

Also hoping that he backs out of another trip with clients to Pebble Beach where they are playing Pebble, Spanish Bay, Del Monte, and Spyglass.  Chances are he will not back out of that one, but fingers crossed!

How cool is that?  Very similar thing happened to me a few years ago that resulted in a trip to Torrey Pines and  a spot in the Pro AM in the Farmers Insurance Open. 

Enjoy it!

Good news: Found out my wife and I are expecting a baby girl in September!
Bad news: i bet my chances to play a lot of golf are going to be going down drastically!


Establish a pattern. You take a day or two with you daughter while your wife gets some time away and you get some golf time while she gets some quality time with your daughter.

Congrats! As a new parent I will say its an incredible ride in so many ways! 

That being said golf and an infant is tough, I took about 4 months off playing after she was born. You settle into a routine fairly quickly though. I'm lucky enough to have a club in between my home and work. So now when its nice I go hit balls during lunch to get my fix during the week without giving up extra time with the two of them. Then I play once a weekend at the time that she told me was best, (usually when they are both napping 😉) and it all works out.

I'll also add to just be willing to give up that golf outing if its been a rough week or a rough few nights...Its worth it and it'll likely mean alot more to your wife than that round of golf was going to mean to you.

Life is weird...

Stupid drawer-style microwave (Sharp brand "high" end) died Monday after only lasting 14-months. For those of you who like metrics, that's roughly $100/month of service life. Stupid POS... I have to meet with a repairman today. Did I mention that Sharp makes a POS microwave? Oh and Sharp? YOU SUCK!!!

Then I had a terrible argument last evening with my wife & daughter that ended with the standard: "I'm 13 and don't need to be told what to do" BS. I'm still fuming...

But because life is indeed weird with all of it's ups & downs, today is just filled with all sorts of goodies involving golf...

Received email confirmations from UPS to expect both my new 60* wedge & some swag from the Wedge Wizard (it's been 8-months...)

Received an email confirmation from Encore Golf that my free sleeve of Encore Elixrs has been shipped via USPS

Then to top all that, I wind up being selected to test the new PING G410 SFT driver for MGS!!!

Knowing how life works, I'll probably throw may back out during fitting just to "even" things out..!

One of my boys brought me this home from school today.  Picked it out of the “prize box”, it’s a paperweight and I love it!!

Enjoy my friend. We had babies A and B at the same time. It doesn’t hit home until your wife is two fisting twins at 3 am.

Only advice is it is much worse for your wife than you. Kiss her rear for as long as possible and love the hell out of that kid and you will love it.

Awesome!

As a dad to 5 Shanksters, I wish you the best of luck. You have 31 days to get some normal sleep. Best thing that ever happened to me.

You haven’t met them.

Oldest wants to be a baker/lawyer. So she never loses an argument.

Second oldest wants to be an actor/singer/musician so he is constantly singing.

Third oldest (middle) never stops talking because she thinks we don’t know she’s here. She wants to be a teacher, so she’s always teaching me things.

Fourth dude wants to be a police officer, so he is always laying down the law...

Youngest is mommas boy and he will ask you 10000 times a day if you like his LEGO creations.

I love it.

So my wife and I never get to talk until after kids bed time. There’s no point, we can’t hear each other.
