Words of wisdom

I have some words of wisdom for anyone wondering what to be when they grow up. Be a DENTIST!!! Apparently, the pay is great and the hours are few. I don't know if it is like this all over the USA, but the dentist offices up here are not open everyday Monday thru Friday. For example, I called our dentist today at 3:00 to make an appointment for Lauren. I got the answering machine. The office is closed on Wednesdays. I continued to listen to the message. The office is also closed after lunch on Fridays. That brings the grand total of open office days to 3 1/2 per week out of 7. The office is closed HALF the time!! Mine is not the only dentist with few hours, I know many. Maybe that is why it costs an arm and a leg to get any work done and you have to wait six weeks for an appointment. I am honestly going to suggest this profession to all of my children!! The only problem that I can think of, is that they would have to be known as Dr. H to all their patients. "Why?", you ask......because we all know that no one seems to be able to pronounce Herdklotz correctly!

Joel is still very sick. He has stopped throwing up, but now he has a really high fever. Thanks for your prayers. Please keep them coming!!

This is very interesting, as I just learned yesterday that for the first time ever, dentists earn more than doctors in this country. For the past three years the average income of doctors has stayed the same, while dentists' income has continued to rise.

If all of your kids become dentists you should be well taken care of in your old age.

Good thinking!

I will be praying for Joel (and Mom). I am very sympathetic to the Mom with sick kids after what we've been through lately! Sky always does the high fever thing and it's just so sad to see him like that. I pray Joel will be healthy soon. (And that no one else gets it!) Hang in there!
