- Friday was our annual golf outing at work (one of our favorite days of the year). We get a half day off work to golf with our cohorts and then everyone heads to Kenny’s Pub in Waukee for refreshments and fellowship. This year was no exception as we had a wonderful time. And we were in bed by 9:30. Boom! We worked the kinks out of our swing on Wednesday night (in case you missed this post: Golf Lessons).
- We were up early to get in line for the Better Homes and Gardens Clean Out for Kids garage sale. Twenty years of props strung out on two floors of a parking garage. There was some awesome stuff to be scavenged, but we were about a half-mile deep in line when we arrived at 7:30 for the 8 opening. We heard through the grapevine that the first people showed up at 5 a.m.
We had our company golf outing yesterday afternoon, so on Wednesday we thought it was a good idea to dust off the clubs and hit the range.
This isn’t a real golf lesson (the title was kind of joke)… but here are a few pointers:
- Keep your head down.
- Keep your eye on the ball.
- Roll your wrists through impact.
- Don’t try to kill the ball…nice, easy swing.
- It’s all in the hips (that one is from Chubbs Petersen in Happy Gilmore).
How we roll:

- First, check out my delicious chicken alfredo lunch (with focaccia bread and bacon, of course) at Jason’s Deli. Yum!
- After work, we curbed our desire to go out to eat again and instead went grocery shopping. We went to a different HyVee than usual and had a horrible time figuring out where everything was stocked.
- I was having a sugar withdrawal, so we went to three different places and I finally succumbed to a three-pound bag (150 pieces) of Laffy Taffy. I used my entertainment allowance to pay for it and asked Eric to hide the bag so it lasts me longer than a week…
- Eric invented (not really, but I’ve never had one) English muffin pizzas…which were pretty good. I made the perfect cherry coke–my favorite!
- Of course, watched a few episodes of LOST. We finally learned where the numbers came from!
You live with a jukebox that plays all day long. Kels is constantly singing, whether or not there is a radio on or music playing. Sometimes the record gets stuck, though, and you have to nudge it, because she likes to sing the same line of one song over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.
