A& betcha!!


That AWKWARD moment when you've already said "what?" three times and you still have no idea what the other person said so you just smile, nod and just agree.

Having a patient come in because of a broken tooth and when you ask where abouts the broken one is they say "just a sec" and pull the TOOTH out!..yah the WHOLE too...except the roots!! " oh its a little bit sensitive so I just stuck in back in.." like its NO BIG DEAL!...excuse me sir but I donno if you are aware but you are holding your tooth in your hand...just FYI!!

Then having another patient come in with a "broken tooth" he walks in with stitched all across his swollen lip and then starts telling me what happened and I notice the tooth is completely missing! Root and all!!..kid got hit with a metal pole and the tooth went thru his lip then came right out!..come on people lets try to keep these things called teeth INSIDE our mouths k?..thats what they are meant for!! 

Having something poking me in my armpit ALL day and wondering what the heck is stuck in my scrub top!...oh that?... just my underwire coming COMPLETELY out of the bra...time for some new over the bouldershoulderholders?...TMI?... I didn't think so! =)

AWESOME  sauce

"Forgive them, even if they are not sorry.."

TONIGHT I was driving home and I saw a huge beautiful shooting star.... my first thought was that I wished happiness and a better life for those who have hurt me... It didn't even seem odd until I really thought about what I had just wished for. I wished it because I guess because of their hurtful words and actions I have now found more happiness and am finding a way to build a better life.

TONIGHT I realized I am ready to forgive.. I HAVE forgiven.... funny how it all happened an exact year from the day...

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a HOT coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.." -BUDDHA

GOODNIGHT ...I have to wake up in 5 big deal...

I went camping with a couple of the most fantastic girl friends and we just kinda had a good heart to heart while we sat and ate our picnic by the water! We just talked about how important GOOD friends are!...You know the ones who aren't afraid to tell you when you are wrong, but then help you make it all right again!, The kind that let you bawl your eyes out over and over and still just hug you and make you feel alright again!, The kind that know you have flaws and aren't perfect but don't abandon you for it! The ones where you can laugh until your belly hurts, and take 100000000 pics with all night long! The kind that don't judge you when you wear your hair in a china bun for days and days! the kind that just LOVE YOU the real YOU!! ....and let me tell you these girls are just that and I LOVE THEM for it!!

The time I had the drunk patient who would NOT let us take her tooth out...and kept leaving the room and I would have to go run around the office trying to find her...then letting us try to remove her tooth but half way through freaking out and leaving....then today I told the story...and GUESS WHO COMES IN!...oy vey! she had not changed a bit!

Asking a patient if her parents are there with her..."NO." "neither of them?"..."My Dad is DEAD!".....oh geez ok...well ya this is awkward!

Realizing your patients hair is stuck in one of your instruments....not to mention..patient is a 20 year old male....let me tell you, that guy found some interesting things in his hair today...if he brushed it that is!

The little girl patient who was laughing so hard she cried...but then was crying because she was are not supposed to be scitzo when you are only 7!


Getting to see my sis EVERY day at work!! ...makes things just that much easier to get through!

Having a little ray of sunshine patient who said things like .."excuse me, I like dolphins!"... "And you know what?, I like Racoons...because they are SO CUUUTE!"... "I ate all my mashed potatoes, and you know what?...they all fit in my mouth!"... "Sometimes I get splinters, my mom tries to get them out, they bleed, then she throws up!"....oh to be 7 again...

My first paycheck in a WHILE! I remember why I do this job!!...mmmmm money!

Laying in bed with the blinds open, while there is a GINORMOUS thunder/lightning storm!..that put me to sleep better than any tv show can!!

SKYPE...whomever invented this deserves a HUG!..or just a pat on the back!! You done well! saver!

BREAKFAST for DINNER....theres just something about BLUEBERRY pancakes at night! Scruuumptious!

My Favorite Thing I Saw Today Was This:




I have been reading the MOST amazing book...for the 2nd time..and it is amazing how different things stick out to you when you read something more than once! It is a book called:


And let me tell you this book is amazing!!..It is written by Sis. Wendy Watson Nelson.

The most recent part I read that I absolutely loved was titled.. VICTIM? SURVIVOR? HERO?

Here are the parts that I love!:

"What story have you been telling yourself and others about you and your life? How have you been casting yourself? As the story of your life unfolds, each time you tell some one how you are doing or what you are doing, do you emerge as a victim, survivor, or hero?"

VICTIMS - Those who are downtrodden and are always under the influence of someone or some problem or force. One can be a victim even of time and "busyness"

SURVIVORS - Those who seek constantly to find a way just to stay afloat amid unending difficulties, challenges, and disasters.

HEROES - Those who have discovered the strength, skills, and understanding to enjoy a rich, full life - despite horrific problems they never thought they would be battling and that would defeat a lesser person. A hero is also keen to help others by sharing what they have discovered.

The gospel teaches that each of us was born to be a hero! We were born to succeed! With the Lord's help, the hero that you truly are can and will emerge!


"Can you think of an instance where you were prepared to respond to the troublesome situation as a victim and instead you responded as a survivor, or even a hero?"

"Which of the following introductions would be most accurate in describing your life story?"

  • This is the story of someone who had the courage to...
  • This is the story of someone who wished they had the courage to...
  • This is the story of someone who realized just in time that they had the courage to...

I think personally my story would be the last one... Because there was definitely a point at the beginning of my trial where I just wanted to give up! I was so angry and confused...and THEN I had a LIGHTBULB moment and realized that I was STRONGER than everything that was happening around me!!

After every message in the book there is always a writing activity to get you really thinking! And this one has been my favourite so far!

WRITE a letter to whomever or whatever has caused you to experience a trial. It can go something like this:

DEAR (name of your problem)

Actually (name of your problem), I don't want to call you "Dear" because you have hurt me so much.

You entered my life...

You have influenced me by...

You have made me doubt...

You have whispered lies to me, like...

You have made me...

You have affected my family by...

You have affected my relationships with others by...

I want you to know that, I am coming to understand that I have unintentionally invited you to stay in my life by...

I now understand that some of the things that made me vulnerable to keeping you and your influence in my life were...

I can now see that some of my greatest strengths and resources in overcoming you and your effects on my life are...

When I am free from you and your influence, _____ and ______ will replace you, and I will feel...

And look...

And love...

One time when you tried to rule me but I was able to be stronger than you was...

As trying and "our relationship" has been,you, (name of problem), and your effects have taught me, and are teaching me...

In closing I would like to say...


TRY writing the next week of your life in advance. What hero like things will you do, say, think, and feel in order to live a hero life this next week?

ANYWHO! Happy Sunday ALL!! I hope it was great! And that you had an opportunity to feel the Spirit through out the day! 

P.S- I am in the process of making this blog look a leeetle bit nicer!! yay!

P.P.S- I got my pics onto my computer...then my computer crashed!..yay...sooo PICS from my trip still to come!!..DRAT technology!! ..we are just not friends at the moment!!

Its off to work I go!...again...for 4 weeks...


"I don't care what anyone says about liking this job..they are liars! one wakes up and thinks.."I cant wait to go scrub plaque off some kids teeth today!".."

"Welcome baaack!..I bet its like you never left!"

"Hows everything feeling?"..."Well my feet and legs kind of hurt."...."ok, but what about your teeth?"..

"I am afraid of cotton rolls, don't put them near me."

"I wont lie to you..I never brush my kids teeth"

"my teeth hurt...can you shave them?"

I SO wish I had started writing these down before!...Like on days when someone told me ALL about the book they are writing...about Mystery, sex, intrigue and is based on his life story..but its about a prince and a hand maiden and elves or something crazy? I wonder who he is?...ANYWHO!!

ITS THE WEEKEND TOMORROW!!!...I have only worked for 2 WHOLE days and I can't wait!...holy am I ever in trouble here!!
