My Hero

Jacob has just completed his second year of dental school.  I am so proud of him! It has been a rough two years, but hopefully the worst of it is over. He has worked so hard and done well, and I am so grateful for him. I wish I could say I was excited to have my husband home a little more like all the other dental wives are saying, but he just took on a job and will be working til midnight almost every night this week. Did I mention it is his summer break? I appreciate all you do, Jacob, even if I do complain about feeling like a single mom all the time. I wouldn't want to trade places with you for all the money in the world. You do such a great job, and I love you so much. Thanks for being so great.

Another reason why he is my hero is that I can wake him up in the middle of the night to go kill a big ugly centipede that I found on my way to the bathroom. Even though it got away, I appreciated the fact that, tired as he was, he spent the next 20 minutes trying to find the beast til I made him come back to bed.

Ugh...I hate house centipedes. I hate that they're back in season again, too.

I'm impressed with Jacob's work ethic. I remember BEGGING Mike to get a job over his summer break and he refused. I was working too so it seemed only fair. :) Instead, he spent the time playing lots of video games and golfing.
