One of the reasons I changed jobs was to have more personal time; to get my life back, in a sense.
And today, for the first time in like two years, I went shooting with a client – just for the fun of it! Oh, I know, I shoot sporting clays and hunt all the time – but always at tournaments. And usually, those are ones I’m actually helping host – which makes the shooting a little more stressful.
I never go shoot just for the fun of it.
Today, we did, and had a great time. It was an absolutely beautiful day here in Midland. And I kicked proverbial butt. I shot a 74. Really. Okay, yes, I did, but it was a 74/114. So, not quite up to my stellar shotgun sally self.
But, you know, wind willing, I might just go shoot again tomorrow.
Dan Carlisle will be proud of me. I have my third (over a four year span, by the way) lesson scheduled in May. Dan will be so glad I finally did what I've promised for the last two years, practice following a lesson..."I will carve out time to practice, Dan, just for me. I will." I must make good on my word. After all, if I keep taking lessons from him and not applying what he's taught me, I might as well just give him a check for $350 and walk off, right?
No. I MUST practice. I MUST practice.
After all, Somebody I know has been coveting my High Overall Lady trophies - and creeping up on my scores steadily. Can't have that. Sibling rivalry and all, you know?
