How My Life Was Forever Changed On A Thursday Morning.

30 Apr

Bill and I have been married for more than eight years now and it’ll be ten years since we met this September.

I’d say I’ve grown accustom to the Turf Lifestyle, I don’t always like it but it’s all I can remember now. I’ve gotten used to doing a lot of things on my own. I’ve learned to love those rides around the golf course.


Ah, the rides around the course. It used to be just Bill and I. Then it was Bill and I with the dog. Then it was Bill, Cameron and I and sometimes the dog. Then along came Logan and the four of us rode the course together. Of course the boys love the rides as much as I do and would beg to get to visit Bill for a ride around.

I have so many wonderful memories that were made on a golf course…Yet have very little to do with the sport of golf.

A few weeks ago Bill resigned his position at the course to move his career (and our lives) in a new direction. Thankfully we will be staying on The Hill.

All at once our family dynamic has changed. The man who left for work before 5am somedays and often would not return until dinnertime is now working from the house. We’re now sharing an office with matching his and her work spaces.


Don’t get me wrong, I love having him around, it’s just different. The past couple weeks have really taken some getting used to on both of our parts. The man spent the better part of two decades on a golf course for goodness sake.

I feel like I always have to be up and doing something now that he’s home but somehow I’m not getting the things that need to be done completed. I feel like he’s always up in my business now and those phone calls with my mom (that sometimes happen multiple times a day) have become few and far between. I’ll admit it’s sometimes frustrating to have him working out of the house, having to keep the house quiet while he’s on a call or web chat is a challenge. It’s also hard to get used to the fact that just because he’s here it doesn’t mean he’s at our beck and call for things.

I have a feeling that the summertime will be a challenge when the boys are off from school and want nothing more than to play with their dad.

I’m excited to see where this new path will take us and I’m sure it’s bound to be an adventure.


Golf Ball Massage

1 Feb

“Put your balls to work.”

Anyone who knows me knows that golf is a major part of my life. Where there is golf, golf balls are sure to follow.

When I first heard about Golf Ball Massage I had one of those, “why didn’t I think of that?” moments. Some of my friends in the Turf Industry had mentioned that they use golf balls to ease aches and pains but with Golf Ball Massage it’s so much easier.

Creator of the SPAball Kaddy and KaddyBACK, Heather Karr is a genius! Heather was kind enough to send me the SPAball Kaddy and KaddyBACK along with the DVD so I would know what to do with it all and I have to say I will be eternally grateful.

As I made my return to being active I was sore…REALLY SORE.

All that working out has given me the perfect opportunity to put the Golf Ball Massage to work.

SPAball Kaddy

The SPAball Kaddy is the perfect size and shape to fit in the palm of your hand for a great massage. The ball rolls around inside the Kaddy for an easy and comfortable massage whether you’re massaging yourself or someone else.

I use the SPAball Kaddy to massage my legs, arms, head and neck. After a long run it feels so good to just rub away the tension.


The SPAball Kaddy is so small I use it just about everywhere. While laying in bed. Sitting on the couch watching TV. While at my desk trying to get over writer’s block. I’ve even taken it in the car and used it while waiting for Logan in the preschool pickup line.


I don’t even need Bill to rub my back anymore. All I need to do is grab my KaddyBACK and a wall and I can give my own back a relaxing massage.

This one came in handy in the early days of yoga when my shoulders were aching from all those downward dogs.

The KaddyBACK has this cool little flaxseed pack that can be heated (or cooled). Oh how wonderful it is to warm that baby up.


Heat on the front, massage on the back = Heaven!

The verdict is in!

Both the SPAball Kaddy and the KaddyBACK are AMAZING!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I think it would be a really fun and creative gift to give to that special someone. The SPAball Kaddy not only works well to massage yourself, but it’s wonderful to give someone a massage too making it a dual gift.

Both of these products get a very relaxed two thumbs up.

Have you ever tried a golf ball to rub away the aches and pains?

Disclaimer: I was given the SPAball Kaddy, KaddyBACK and an instructional DVD to use and enjoy. As always, the opinions here are all mine.
