Get used to it pal, pretty sure I packed on at least 10 lbs when we had our daughter.

Ah sympathy weight. I did that with both my wife's pregnancies. It's a great way to show support.

That's right man. Nothing says I love you more than looking like the Goodyear blimp when you take your shirt off.

We're having twins within the next four weeks.  I've probably gained as much as she has, for moral support.

Awesome!  You still gonna be able to squeeze some golf in?  Suggestion, find a quality 9-hole course!  18 may be pushing it?

I still have to go to work, so I'll still be spending plenty of time on here.

That remains to be seen.  Normally I try to grab the first tee time so I'm back home around 9 am.  I think I can keep doing that.  The wife disagrees.  We'll see how it goes.

You have a unique situation with twins obviously, so no idea how that will play out.  I suspect though (and this goes for you too Beach) that it will be crazy hectic at first until you guys get into a rythym.  Two things you both have going for you:

 

1.  Babies sleep A LOT.  (They're like cats)

2.  If they're breastfeeding, you're kind of off the hook there too.

 

I can't tell you from experience, because I didn't golf at all when my kids were that tiny (not because of them, but because I had just sort of "retired" due to back problems I thought would never improve), but I suspect that you'll both have a short time (weeks, months maybe) where golf disappears somewhat, but eventually you'll figure something out. :)

GD, I just need you Pak and a few others to invite me out.  Then I'll give the wife the 'But my buddies need me!' kind of talk... And maybe she will let me out for a half day?!

No, No, No, you have this all wrong.  Beach have GD call your house and talk to your wife and say he wants to play some golf, but he does not want to mention it to you yet because he doesn't not want to get your hopes up if it will not be OK.  Then GD can say, "I know he has not had much of a chance to play lately, do you think it would be OK to borrow him for just half a day to play some golf."  There is no way she will say no.

That's what I'm counting on.  SWMBO doesn't like the idea of me assuming that I'm going to have time, so I try to keep it quiet while also refusing to give in.  I think when the time comes, things will work out.

I'm available to make these calls, upon request, for a small fee of $1.00/per call.  Just PM me the date/time you want to go out, and my character name.  If necessary, any background info I need to know (i.e., "I'm his co-worker you've never met" or the college buddy you always used to talk about).

Anyone in Houston that I can golf with while wearing my "salesman hat", meaning my company would pay for the golf. c2_beer.gif

Hhahaha the college buddy thing wouldn't work.  We met in college.  She knows all my buddies and would pretty much immediately shut down the idea of playing golf with any of them. ;)

But she still hasn't met any of us TST tools (cept maybe Pak?) so he can always play that role.  Or just tell her that we've gotten real organized with our Socal group and that you are the president of the group and have to pre-approve any new golfers with a round on the course, or some other BS like that.

I can speak French, you could come up with some outlandish story about being invited to play with the Belgian Consulate or the Prince of Monaco.
