It's my challenge in life

Just a quick update, the ointment for the eyes allowed me to sleep well for the first time in a while. I'm convinced that it's going to work. Just 2 months and 29 days to go.

Once again, we went golfing. Probably not the smartest thing to do since I can only partially see. Cowboy is my challenge. I think that as long as we are together and are playing golf, he will be my challenge. Tonight, it wasn't about his golf or his swing or even anything about him. Tonight it was about how slow the people were in front of us or how backed up we were going to be. I, on the other hand, can be way more patient. I can wait and take our time an just enjoy the event and not the competitiveness of the game. It started on hole one when he wanted to start on 10, so for the first 6 holes that's all he talked about. Finally, we skipped ahead and played 11 and were going to come back and play 7 later. Still not good enough when we caught up with someone.

Dear God, Grant him patience. Grant him lots of patience and grant it to him quick or I'm selling my golf clubs!!!

Now, MJ, [said in my best therapeutic voice] you know that we can not change others, only ourselves, and while God might have the ability to do that, I suspect he is busy with things more important than (sorry!) your golf game.

Instead of selling your golf clubs, maybe you just need to find a new golf partner. I am sorry that you and Cowboy had a rough night.

Maybe you should sit down and talk with Cowboy and tell him everytime he makes golfing no fun he needs to take you out for a fancy dinner. Maybe then he will be more relaxed during golf.

Or.... you could whack him with a golf club when he's getting on your nerves. Just trying to be helpful! :)
