Rough Day

Wow I have had a rough day. I was late for work and that always makes for a rough start. One of our girls left early today because she was "sick". So instead of doing my weekly catch-up on my job(billing and coding) I spent my day doing her job, which put me a week behind now. Then we had a patient that was having a rough day so she came in the office and took out her rough day on me. She was rude and very toxic. The worst part I had already had a note on he chart to talk to her because her insurance is not paying her claims so I had to tell her that after she had just ripped my head off. NOT GOOD!
I finally get to school where on eof the girls in my class is a dental assistant and I tell her about this problem I have been having for a couple weeks now and she tells me that I to make an appt because the only way to fix my problem is to have my bridge removed and everything flushed and cleaned and take antibiotics. Oh yeah that is going to cost me. NOT GOOD!
So on my way home from school I stopped at the Olive Garden and had myself a wonderful piece of tarimisu and a nice coffee. I feel much better now and have decided that GOd never gives you more than you can handle and he was having great faith in my abilities today. So on that note I hope you are all having a wonderful evening and are enjoying your families like I am.

I have been in a weird mood the past couple days. I have had alot of thoughts about my life and where it is going. I worked really hard the past two years to get into a certain program, which I got an alternate seat in. The program started in Agust and I did not get a seat. I have since decided to go to school to become an ARNP. I am looking at about 4 years of school. I really need to do this to be able to provide for my kids.

Here is were the trying part comes in. My kids need me now just as much as they are going ot need me in hte future. I am a good mom and do more fr my kids even with work and school than most of the people I know. But somehow I feel like I am depriving my kids when I am at school. I am not sure why this is all coming about right now other than I am going to lots of different schools to see about the different program and maybe it is getting to me.

I am not looking to start a stay at home mom verses working mom debate because believe me I have done both and they are equally as hard and both have pros and cons. I guess I am just putting something in words that has been bouncing around my head for a few weeks. Not sure what I am looking for.

Update on my weight loss and a question

For those of you interested I have met my weight loss goal and have been maintaining for 3.5 months now. I lost a total of 50 pounds in just about 3 months. I went from a size 16 to a size 6. My cholesterol, glucose, and blood pressure are all normal now. I feel great. For the first time in a bunch of years I actually wore a bathing suit in public without shorts or a t-shirt.

I did have one bad thing from the weight loss. I lost my breast right along with the weight. I have considered getting implants but I am alittle bit nervous. So my question to you all is to implant or not to implant?

Have you ever...

Heard of Tatouage? Well if not go check out the website. The ladies that do this are friends and are hooking me up with whatever I want for my house. So I chose the jungle theme for my family room. I am so excited about this room. We have the first piece and they are going to be bringing me the rest next week. I am so excited.

I went and picked up paint this week and painted the room. I will be sure to post pictures of the finished product.I am thinking of doing this design in my bathroom.

Long Day

Wow I have had the longest day ever. I usually work late on Wednesday anyways but our last patient had an hour long consult that turned into 2.5 hours. I finally got out of there at 6:15.

I called Dh and said lets go to dinner and he gives me a hard time about it like I didn't work all day or something. I think he wants me to slap the crap out of him.

Oh well I am off to find some yummy dinner in the barron wasteland called my kitchen.

Been a LONG time

So you know how sometimes you just need to take a break from life. Well I am at that point and my break is going to come in the form of my blog. I have been gone for awhile but I am ready to dive back in and pick up where I left off. I have missed reading the blogs daily and can't wait to catch up. So I am off to do some reading.
