To Golf or Not to Golf

With the weekend behind us, Cowboy told me to hurry on home so we could get a little exercise in and play golf. There is a par 3 course that has 9 holes and you can play it a second time for $1 more. So when I got home, we headed out for the course. I played horribly. Have I really been playing for 8 years? You couldn't tell it by my game tonight. Finally, about the last 3 holes, I was doing better. We were going to play a second round when the whole town showed up to play. We packed it in and went home. Not a good night for us. Cowboy was upset that we only played 9 holes. I was upset because I didn't do well. We stayed in opposite ends of the house.

Sadie and I did have a good walk. I love walking with her. It's like no matter how many times we go around the block, it's like the first time all over.

I was thinking about Cowboy. He is not good at giving compliments. I think I'm going to start working with him on this. I'm going to teach him the "Art of a Compliment". It's hard to complain since he does so many other things for me. I just noticed that he set up my treadmill, after I motioned it one time. He does so many things for me, it would just be nice to hear how much he loves and appreciates me in words.

OH, I am sorry that you had a rough night. I have heard so many people say that today was just not a good day. Maybe it's a full moon or maybe we are all tired of $4/gallon gas. Who knows....

I completely understand about wanting to hear how much Cowboy loves you. And really, we all need to hear that from the ones we love. No matter how much a person does for us to show us how much they love us, sometimes all we need is for them to say the words, "I love you."

You know where to find me if you need to talk....

That old Venus-Mars thing! Will we ever figure it out?

It is hard when the most important person in your life isn't as good about saying it out loud as you need. It is wonderful that he shows you in other ways (and he seems to do that on a regular basis), but it doesn't take the place of hearing it, does it?

At the risk of being obvious .... have you talked with him about it? That's rhetorical, of course. I hope you can find the middle ground for you both. :)
