    9:30-10:30 Drive to the office, look over the schedule and try and figure out how my back will let me work on 30 people’s mouths today without permanently disabling me.
    10:30-11:00 Get office and staff ready for the day, and pray that my wife goes into labor sometime soon.
    11:00-7:00 A bridge prep, four emergencies, seven fillings, three extractions, two partials, and fifteen cleaning exams. Asking if my wife has gone into labor.
    7:00-8:30 Cook dinner, drive to bible study.
    8:30-10:00 Small group bible study, then home for sleep. Another day of waiting on a baby that’s holding onto the umbilical cord for dear life. We’re getting induced on monday, so maybe we’ll have a St. Patrick’s baby! Have a fun date night Scott! Looking forward to calling and asking baby advice!

    It is very cool to read about what everyone is having to do. Everyone should pat themselves on the back for doing what they do, day in and day out. As a fellow human let me say thank you to everyone that is doing their job and doing it well. Not much glamour and glitz going on out there. Just regular people doing regular stuff. You are all awesome for just being faithful. Esp. you moms and dads. (What about that one lady talking about her kids pooping? And it doesn’t say that she let them! Crazy, man, crazy!) I think anybody can be a movie star and anybody can be a rock star. How easy is that? But it takes something more… something that not everyone has, to do the same thing over and over, everyday; and do it, because you’re suppose to. That’s hard. Thats big-time. That takes intestinal fortitude (spelled g-u-t-s!) That takes commitment. That takes raw love! And again, that makes you people awesome. Keep on keeping on. You are the salt of the earth. And that dude Doug, with all that listening to this instrument and that instrument beginning this and beginning that. Ah…no way, dude. I thought to myself, “That guy has probably got a serious drinking problem!” But then I went to his blog and saw he is one radical Christian who loves God and loves his family. Drinking? No. A heart of worship? Oh yeah! Doug, you are the man!

    Sorry, Scott. Didn’t know my list was so freakin’ long. And yes, slowtrain, I do let the children poop. But that’s another story on any number of levels.
