Family-free post

No worries, it's just me. Last Monday the blogging site that we use to post was down so I was not able to post. The week before that it was Memorial Day. So, it's been a while.

How have you been?

Just for the record, my dad and I get along great.

If you didn't know it, I do not pre-write my blogs. It is currently 10:54 am CDT on Monday and I have time to write this because I had a patient cancel. Well, not really cancel. He came in and we informed him that his dental benefits were maxed out for the year, so he decided to wait until January. Kind of a no-win situation there. If we don't keep patient's updated on insurance benefits they get mad when the bill comes and if we do - well, I end up with some down time.

Also, so I can get it off my chest: it is always dangerous to ask if you are the only one in a given situation because you may find out that you are, and that is a little daunting. But, given the total absence of responses to my last post I am going to stay away from reporting on my business for a few weeks. I don't think it is an issue that anyone can connect with and I feel like I constantly bring everyone down. I am looking forward to the point in my business where the cashflow is improved and the highs and lows level out, where I can worry about how to best spend my money instead of how to best pay my bills so the checks clear after the money is in my account. That is just my reality. My "daily grind" post could be the same every week and that's not exciting for anyone. My business is still open today and I can pay my bills today - and for today, that is enough.

The World Cup is on and that makes me very happy. I am a soccer junkie so this is a dream month. I hope you each get a chance to watch it at some point, regardless of whether the USA is playing. This sport is truly an international phenomenon and the passion it elicits dwarfs anything we see here in the states (with apologies to those fans in The Swamp).

Can't wait to read the next installment of "As the Gammichia Turns".

Have a great week!

The Germany and Australia game was awesome! My husband is a soccer junkie as well and I was not so much. After watching it these past few days I am totally addicted. GO USA!
