Day #1 - First "Problem"

I forgot this morning that I am supposed to start the drops (the "magic" that is supposed to make all of this work).  On the loading days it says to take 7 drops 3 times today.  The bottle's lid is actually a dropper so you are supposed to place this in your mouth and hold it vertical to get the drops.

Well, I don't know about you, but how in the world am I supposed to know how many drops are actually dropping into my mouth, and if they are all uniform or not.  I guess I could look in a mirror while I do it?

I have a better suggestion though.  Can we get droppers with lines?  After reading all of the directions it seems that it will be either 5, 7 or 9 (only if needed) drops at a time.  So theoretically we could have a 5, 7 and 9 line on the dropper almost like a syringe.  This would be so much easier.

So, I am probably going to die from doing this, but I have calculated that to achieve 7 drops a line should be placed at 7/8's of an inch.  A 5 drop line should be placed at about 11/16th's of an inch.  We own one of those retractable sharpies so I held my dropper up against a ruler and drew marks at the correct location.

As long as the sharpie mark stays for the duration, and it doesn't interact with the solution I think this will work so much better.
