Week #36, #37, #38, #39, #40

Hello! Long time, no blog! This long weekend inspired me to finally update with my Pic-A-Day Challenge (which, I guess I have failed now, but I keep going!). I am not presenting it like I usually do cause I have more pictures for certain days, and no pictures for other days. Here goes...

This last week in April I have no pictures! I can tell you that I had an orientation, for the temporary job I am currently working, the Monday & Tuesday of this week. The last 3 days of the work week, I was working for a hygienist in another office in the area.

Day 253

The Mole (aka my car) turned 100,000 miles this Sunday! I had planned to take these pictures all week and was happy I remembered to do so! I took the 99999 mile photo cause my lucky number is 9.

The other picture is of my loaner phone from Ntelos. My old flip phone was breaking at its hinges, so I needed this one to get by until Phil and I decided which phone company to stay with/go to together on one plan. We had decided on staying with Ntelos cause we figured it would be cheaper, but they messed up our paperwork and it was going to take forever for our phone numbers (we wanted to keep) to move to one family plan. My service was ending soon, and they made us mad so we went to Sprint. It ended up being slightly cheaper for us anyway. And it somehow was easier for our phone numbers to switch over to another provider than to keep our old provider and switch the phone numbers over to another plan. Go figure.

Day 254

I worked for yet another hygienist in the area 5 days this week! This is a picture of their old pop machine in the lunch room.

Day 257

A perk of working is that I actually was up to see the sunrise! It was a beautiful, foggy Spring morning without any rain!

This Wednesday, I also met up with the place who is making the cupcakes for our wedding! They are actually going to make us a brownie "cake" for the top of our cupcake tower that Phil & I can cut into at the reception! This relieves me that the place I wanted from the beginning will actually do this for us!

The Friday of this week, I took my local anesthesia exam so I could give anesthetic injections. It was a crazy week for me cause I hadn't studied in a year, but also cause I put this exam off til the last minute (some things never change!) and this was a week out from the deadline in taking it! I got it done though and still I'm waiting for results.

This was my first week working for the hygienist who is out on maternity leave for the next 3 months. They have a crazy computer system, that the chief dentist praises that I have learned how to use faster than anyone else that has worked there. I don't think it is necessarily hard, there are just lots of steps to go through to complete a patient note. The whole office is paperless and the x-rays are digital.

Day 267

Today, Phil & I went to his sister's pinning ceremony for nursing school! So proud of his sister for achieving her goal after so many obstacles! The downside of this ceremony was that it lasted 2 1/2 hours... not fun!

Day 269

How could I have not bought nail polish during these past 5 weeks!? Well, I couldn't pass up the sale stickers of 75% off of course! I need to try them out soon!

Day 279

My parent's anniversary was this past Thursday and they took a mini-vacay! So Phil & I decided to do their grocery shopping for them this Friday and went to the Kroger. I had to go to the little girl's room and when I came out I saw Phil pushing around this buggy full of pork rinds! I thought he'd filled up our buggy, but found out it was one that just had them all in there to sell like that. It was funny anyway, so I got this pic and it has that guy's hilarious face on the sign in it too! I think he wants some pork rinds!

I also used some of those Real Nail Polish Strips by Sally Hansen this evening! They were fairly easy to apply and turned out pretty good! I got the Laced Up strips to go with my current lace obsession!

Day 280

This Saturday evening, Phil & I met up with his parents to go out to eat at the mall. After our meal, his mom and I went to Charming Charlies where I got this watch! It is one with the rubber band that I have been eyeing lately!

Earlier this day, I went with two of my bridesmaids and my friend Lee, who will be marrying us, to order their bridesmaid dresses. We had a great time and went to eat lunch together as well!


Also during these past 5 weeks, I have been running every Monday, Zumba-ing 2 days a week, and for the last 2 weeks, I have been kick boxing! I'm feeling pretty good exercise-wise, but just have to get my eating on track, especially on the weekends!

Well, that's all I have for you for now! I hope everyone has had a great holiday weekend and will have an even better short work week!
