My baby's not a baby anymore...

Today the little one came up to me and asked me to check her teeth because she thought she had a loose tooth. I checked and yes my baby's little chicklet tooth is loose. (I had tears in my eyes) She is so excited. She asked if she could call Grandma and tell her that she has a "lost tooth". Too funny!

I'm really not liking work anymore than I did when I started. Although I did get to assist a couple of times today and I got to take some xrays. I plan on getting a book of stamps this weekend and sending out 20 resumes and cover letters to practices in the area.

Tomorrow night is the mine and the girls' scrapbooking night. I'm looking forward to it! And I can't wait to go to the crop with my SIL.

RASCAL FLATTS CONCERT IS NEXT THURSDAY! YIPEE!!! Mom's going to spend the night with the girls because she'll have to be here early in the morning the next day to get the kids on the bus. Boy I really do appreciate everything she does for me. I don't know what I'd ever do without her.

For my girl's day out for next month we are supposed to start baking our Christmas cookies for the season so we can freeze them. I'm looking forward to it. I plan on making a lot of the usual... Hello Dollies, Peanut Butter Chestnuts, Aunt Shirley's Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies, Aunt Marge's Cut Outs, Butter Balls, Ginger Snaps, Lemon Snowballs, Fudge, Macaroons, and Peanut Blossoms w/ Hershey Kisses. I will try to add one more this year. Maybe I will try SIL's recipe for Mint Ravioli Cookies. I think that the cookie tins are going to be our gifts this year.

First Day on the Job

Well I started my first day on the job at Aspen Dental and I have to say that I am not going to like it. First off, I wouldn't call myself a Dental Assistant- I would more or less call myself the Head Dental Assistant's runner. From the way that they explained it to me I won't be chairside assisting for a few months. That sucks! I really hope that Dr. T. calls at some point. Another thing that I didn't like was that things were very unorganized and the break room was disgusting! I actually acted like I was concerned for the other person at the that table about her not having any room to eat so that I could clear off the table and not seem so anal.
-One of my biggest pet peeves is when people push everything to the middle of the table instead of clearing it off when they sit down to eat. Makes me very clausterphobic!

I found out that the office changed it's hours on Halloween to 8-5; so I can take the girls trick or treating after all. Yeah! I also mentioned to them about K's concert on Dec. 12th. I told them that I understood if I couldn't- she said that I may be able to leave early that night- she'd find out for me.

Last night I finished 3 more layouts. I am really pleased with what I have done. I actually didn't like the one that I did of my Goddaughter so I got up early and redid it before I went to work. -It looks much better. I am going to a crop with my SIL on Nov. 11th. I can't wait to see what the other people are doing so that can get some ideas. I will try to post my new LO's tomorrow night. But in the meantime; here is a picture that we took of ourselves when we went on a hike with the dog on Columbus day. :0)

Back to work tomorrow...

After 6 years of being a Stay-At-Home-Mom, I am going back to work tomorrow. I am so nervous and scared. I really don't want to do it but there really is no need for me to be at home anymore- with both of the girls being in school full-time now. I finished Dental Assisting school the end of September and I have been hired at Aspen Dental full-time. I'm afraid it's going to be very fast paced and I'm not going to know anything that I am expected to know. My late night is Tuesdays and it just so happens that Halloween is on a Tuesday this year and K's concert for chorus and Jamie's birthday falls on a Tuesday as well this year. I have never missed anything that the girls have done and boy am I feeling guilty now.
I am going to continue looking for a job while I am there and hoping that Dr. T. has decided to say goodbye to the assistant that he has now and will call me and offer me her job. He has hinted around that there may be changes. I asked him to please keep me in mind. (Dr. T's office is just around the corner from our house and oh so convenient.)
