Eric is taking off today for his National Clinical Boards in Kansas City. Why Kansas City you ask? Well, because since Eric wants to practice in California he has to take a certain boards exam that CA accepts. Unfortunately, Marquette does not offer this test. Therefore, the closest and least expensive school offering it was in KC. So, not only does Eric have to bring all of this:
dental shiz with him, but he had to screen multiple patients to find the perfect candidate for what they require and then BEG them to fly to KC. The easy part is finding the patients. The difficulty comes when I have to schedule 5 different flights, put up 3 + Eric & I in hotel rooms, pay for all their food + extra just for coming, hire a dental assistant to assist during his procedures, rent a car, pay for the testing fee, fly in my very supportive in-laws to watch our kids, try and reassure Eric that it will be a piece of cake, all the while praying these people actually show up for their flights because if they don't Eric fails. It has been a total nightmare the past two weeks. Senior year has not been the dream I thought it would be. But, as of this Saturday, the nightmare will be over and the dreaming can begin.
