Exhausted

These last two weeks have been crazy. Christmas activities combined with work ramping up have left me completely exhausted. One of the mechanics at work retired a couple of months ago and the work has been slowly backing up. On top of that, we had a couple of additional projects that needed to be done: first a soda machine needed to be installed last Thursday which involved working overnight and being awake for almost 24 hours, and a store closing just before Christmas which involved 40 hours of work this past Monday-Wednesday. I even worked a full day Christmas Eve before heading out for family stuff. Didn't get any rest on the weekends due to shopping, family stuff, and more work. Couldn't even enjoy the warm weather because I've been too tired to do anything golf-related.

I'm absolutely exhausted and this weekend isn't nearly long enough for rest.

Join the club. Client pressures, deadlines, customers threatening to sue clients - 'tis the Holiday Season. Being a single parent, it's worse getting ready for Christmas and cooking for Christmas Eve. My back was so sore I went on the Teeter board, and then hit the floor with back exercises. Took double vitamins. Need a vacation after the "vacation." We will get over it.

I hope so. The work isn't going to get easier because I don't see them hiring anyone else to help out. Hopefully I'll get a decent raise to ease the pain a little.

Most pleased. Still a lot of work ahead of me, but I got to see what I can do when I'm hitting the ball well. Scores should continue to drop next year.

I'm exhausted, too, but it's because I've been sick the last week and a half or so.  I have three days of work this week and then a week or so ahead of me that should be slow and then it'll ramp up and I'll likely be putting in more hours.

Where's @rkim291968 to share how tired he's going to be in retirement. :-$

Actually I'm feeling a bit of a sinus infection coming on now, but other than that I'm feeling a bit better. Got to work on my swing for an hour today and it was good to be able to do something I wanted to do as opposed to things I needed to do.

Nice.

Yeah, my gf and I went to her parent's place in Vermont a week ago Saturday and got back yesterday.  I took my net and mat with me with the intention of using it a few times but because of bad weather and my not wasn't feeling well, I ended up only using it once which sucked.  I'm excited at the prospect of hitting the range this week and hopefully playing Saturday (if the good weather holds)!

    • I think he's just intense.  It's fun to watch and his desire to win will (most likely) never be questioned.   How many debates have there been on Golf Channel regarding a player's "killer instinct" or lack thereof?  DJ is probably a good example before he went on his tear as I remember a lot of chatter that he was too laid back...didn't have that burning desire to win.  Now that he's won a bunch, and is the same person (at least on the course), that laid back demeanor is viewed as "cool under pressure." As cliche as it is, winning cures all.
    • No argument there. If I had made the thread today (or anytime this year) he wouldn't have been in there. It's a shame with how good he is/can be at his best, but I think his health will keep holding him back.
    • A topic on something I haven't done any research but am intrigued on is the possibility of removing helmets from football.  Pads could be made smaller as well. It would (hopefully) take the head out of the equation as a weapon.  It would fully reduce the possibility of concussions since you'd still have guys hitting their heads on the turf and other things...but I think the extremely violent collisions would come way down. Again, I haven't fully thought this through but people have brought it up from time to time.  Something worth discussing.  I love the NFL too but hate to see what is happening to these guys and what may happen to the sport.
    • Yeah, I know one guy, and he's a very athletic 6'5".   Hitting any club 230-250 is long enough to get you into the mid-single digits assuming the rest of your game is decent.  But if all that's holding you back from another 50+ yards is learning to hit the driver, if you give that up, you're giving up on a lot more potential to ultimately play much better golf. Learn to hit it.
    • @bkuehn1952 beat me to it. This is essentially exactly what I was going to say (below) I'm not a golf pro. I'm just saying that my observation (take it for what it's worth) is that people try to muscle and over-hit the driver way more often than not. They get really tense over the ball and I can just see so much tension and rigidity in their swing. Then they hit it 200 yards. My driver swing is the most effortless swing I have in my bag. I'm not saying you have to play a driver. Hell, I've left my driver AND 3w at home, TWICE. But I did that just for fun to see how my game would change at my home course (mix it up a little). I didn't leave them behind "because I was afraid of them." Learn to hit it. Sometimes you have to break down your swing to nothing and start all over. We've all done it.
