Brain Power: The Doctor vs Your Doctor's Wife
We decided Doc H utilizes all his brain power at the hospital. His mind focuses on medicine, surgical practices, his patients, and their families. Outside the hospital, his mind focuses on our start-up, the technology, the appointments he has to promote, market, and ultimately sell the technology. Outside the start-up? Well, what can I say? The man looks great on my arm.
Me? Off the top of my head I can tell you this happens:
D3 drop-off at 7:00am
LB drop off at 7:45am
D2 has practice at 6:45am
D1 classes start at 8:30am
D1 will come by for lunch
D2 will head to class at 10am
12:30 pick up for LB
1pm conference call for start-up
2:30 pick up for D3
Parent teacher conference at 3:10pm
dance class 4:00pm
polo practice at 5:00pm,
race back for pick up at from dance at 5:15pm
race back and pick up from polo.
Around 6pm all hungry family members with no money for food will converge around my dinner table.
Around 9pm, those same family member will scour my pantry for breakfast items to take back to their rental.
Somewhere in between, I remember to shop, cook, clean, launder, pay bills, prepare taxes, work the start-up, blog, write my freelance gigs, feed the dog, take out the trash, and yell at the kids to wash their own blazin' dishes!
That's just today. Other days, add in SAT prep classes, various tutoring programs, games, tournaments, school events, open houses, birthday parties, vacation schedules, custody schedules, dances, volunteer job schedule, school volunteer hour sign-ups, etc.. etc..
I can tell you all those specifics off the top of my head.
... And nothing else.
So, we each ordered a margarita and decided to call it even.
