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)!

    • The tax is 0.88% increase on an already 12% room tax, it's hard to quantify someone complaining about a less than 1% increase on a hotel room who will probably drop a nice chunk of change in the casino, Oakland is not going to build a stadium it's just not economically feasible while they still owe money on the previous renovation in 1995 somewhere near 100 million. The Raiders are moving, 31 owners approved it and everything is already in place the financing after Adelson left was picked up by BofA , the only part that really remains in question is attendance and in todays NFL it's not as important as it was once believed, ticket prices are going to be much higher in Vegas, Oakland was near the bottom at $71, Chicago near the top at $131 so I'll bet LV tickets will be near the highest which will deter much of the element most connect the Raiders with. I expect the casinos are going to use tickets for weekend getaways and target opposing team markets for the date their local team is in town, I don't think Raider home games in LV will be as much a home field advantage as Oakland was or even as intimidating to other teams fans.
    • I have hole like that on my home course (tough tee-shot choice). It's a par four with a large pond down the right side, probable lost ball or forced chip-out if you go left, but a huge reward if you keep it straight or make it over the water as the ground slopes towards the hole. I love hitting driver on the hole, as the potential reward is great, but after a few straight rounds in the water I decided to give my 4-iron a try, since a perfect shot would leave me just shy of all possible trouble. The first two rounds I bogied the hole, so nothing special, but not in the water. Since then I've managed several pars and a birdie (that I even managed to record on video!). I couldn't have done it any better that day. Two, perfect 175yd 4-irons, the second of which stopped in the middle of the green. Then I drained the 25-foot birdie putt and won a quarter.  Only one double, after a shanked chip shot and bad putting, but no penalties. I have played the hole well with the driver before, but the long-term average makes the choice easy...and honestly, even if I needed the birdie, I still think I like my odds with the 4-iron.   
    • So to add intrigue to this discussion.... The M2 has, on multiple occasions, had the face cave and/or crack. My local golf super store, Haggin Oaks, has had to replace at least one set of 2017 M2 irons and several individuals from their demo stock (8, 7, 6, and 5 iron). Like the RSI's?  
    • Here's an interesting thought. Since people outside the game can review video for a few days... like Thursday's round can still be reviewed even on Sunday these days... some unnoticeable transgression could be called in for review during the round and then the rules officials make the correction on the player's card. Now under current rules the player has signed an incorrect scorecard even though they believed it to be correct at the time. So if the round is still under review, why sign the scorecard? Why not wait until the tournament is over before signing your cards? That way every viewer has had their chance to phone it in and make their observations. The rules committee has had their opportunity to make their corrections. Then the players will not have signed the incorrect scorecard.  If this were a legal document, I wouldn't sign it until all the information was finalized.
    • A friend has it down pat, last year he dug a divot so deep, the ball went up a few inches off the tee, under the top of the driver and landed in the front of the divot.
      I gave him grief because he never taps the front end of divots down that he creates with every swing and told him the golf gods were paying him back.
