'Tis The Season for...Golf (Question Mark)

So, when I title something 'Tis The Season', it usually means it's about time for my favorite sport: FOOTBALL! However, that's long over. It will be a while until I can see my New Orleans Saints play again. But, it's not all about me, nor is it only about football. I recognize that there are plenty of people out there who don't like football (even detest it) like many of my girlfriends. Hey, I get it, that used to be me before I had my son and moved to Cleveland.

It's April already, and that's good news for us northern and northeastern folk. That means we've been seeing the sun stay out longer and the temps breaking slightly. For many, that means other sports are underway. Baseball, Lacrosse, Tennis, Motorsports, and Golf.

Speaking of Motorsports and Golf, Check out his most recent brief, but educating write up (with pictures) on the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course in Indianapolis, IN.

I don't play golf, don't watch golf, and don't know anything about it, but I wish otherwise. I've tried multiple times, trust me, but it never worked out...I just couldn't seem to get that strange body position down for the swing. But, many people can, and it's their passion. So, because it's the season, I wanted to share that blog post. I find it well written and I know the author. I've always respected the way he explains different courses he visits and plays on.

Anything that others would enjoy reading, or learning about, is worth writing and publishing.
Next, I think he should write a book.

Visit Golfing With Shawn for a list of courses he's played and his thoughts on them and the game.

Here's his first post where he visited Hawaii.

Back to School Anxiety: Bullying

Download “School Boy Being Stressed” by David Castillo Dominici via I recently wrote about how to help your child if they’re struggling with going back to school because they were bullied. My biggest most important tip was to listen, because I honestly could not write a ‘How-to-make-them-not-afraid’ column. Frankly I thought that was absurd. Fear is sometimes real. Anxiety is sometimes truly there, and for a good reason. Our job as parents isn’t to try to make it go away, it’s to try to find out the true source of those worrisome feelings. If you’d like to read more, click here. And if you’re child is struggling to find excitement about the new school year, don’t deny it, just accept it and move forward gently.

Green Punch Buggy....!!!!

Green Punch Buggy...No Punch Back! As I was writing this blog post, my son came to me showing off his Lego creation. And don't you know I got hit at least five times since on my computer screen was displaying at least five different punch buggies, of five different colors thanks to Google Images. (Bad timing I'm thinking...) How can we possibly have world peace with these silly cars in the world!? ;) Don't the owners of these cute-but-obnoxious-cars understand that driving these things around town promotes violence!? ;) Anyhow.... The original purpose of this blog was to ask parents everywhere this question: Do you find yourself saying 'PUNCH BUGGY *BLANK-COLOR*! '  to yourself, even when the kids are not in the car??? I do! Isn't it funny how those games we used to play as a child are still around? I bet our parents say the same thing.... HAPPY FRIIIIIIDAAAAYYYY! P.S. I got hit at least ten more times, since as my son stood beside

Good Customer Service At Home

Over the years, my careers have mainly been customer service based. I started in a family business and then moved on up through the rungs from waitress, to hostess, to sales associate, manager and eventually the GM of a hotel. In all my years, my training taught me that you should always do your best to take your customer all the way to what they need, make them happy, and never leave them until they are done with you. I pride myself on my customer service abilities. Though the other day, I think I failed at customer service in my own home! I was getting ready to cut my daughter's hair and because of how long it had gotten (she's been growing it out for a year!) I felt this time it would be best  if instead of me spritzing it with water, she could wash and condition it real quick. She was fully clothed so I just suggested she run into the bathroom and wash her hair in the tub. She’s fourteen. I suppose I just assumed that she knew how to kneel over the tub and do it.
