I have every intention of revealing to you, my captive audience of five, my feelings and fears and what not of re-entering the dental field next week. But for now I will let you in on the woes of my corporate career that I encounter on a daily basis.
Like today when the talk of Chick-fil-a for lunch began brewing shortly thereafter began the talk of Chick-fil-a being closed on Sundays. I support Chick-fil-a for closing on the Sabbath and giving their employees the day to rest or worship or whatever is it they please. I did not vocalize my opinion. But in this vast pool of culture that I work in there are other opinions that began to surface. Like one who announced that he bans himself from supporting the fast food chain because they choose to close on Sundays. Or how about the one who said, "I cussed Jesus when I went to Chick-fil-a on a Sunday and found out they were closed." I am just going to move on from that comment and not even let you know what I thought about it! You can thank me later.
Then there was my superior who informed us that Catholics can "sin" so much because Jesus knows that they have it "right" and so He allows them to do those things without consequence (i.e. drink, smoke, cuss, kill, etc.). This is added to the fact that he constantly reminds us that the Catholics were, of course, the first Christians. So, you draw your own conclusions!
These are just two of the examples from today alone. Combine that bit of knowledge with the following idioms that are much more recurrent than the above...
Ol' Hook=the significant other
Um, well, as I sit here and think of the wild and crazy things I hear all day every day I think I should refrain from sharing them...in an effort to keep a PG rating!
I just feel it is appropriate to say...Watch your mouth!! But in this case, it would be a waste of time!

Okay, someone needs to fess up! Who taught her this noise? It goes on for several minutes at a time and she thinks it's the funniest thing ever. Well, we think so too!! We think it sounds eerily similar to a scene in Forrest Gump! Whatever it is and wherever it came from you have to admit it is utterly adorable!!

Maybe it's my hectic schedule
Maybe it's the lack of brain cells
Maybe I just don't wanna!
I can't seem to force myself (not sure I would even do it if I got paid to) to write a blog post these days. I have a lack of motivation, lack of things to talk about even though I am busier than ever, lack of strength in my fingers to type, lack of whatever may bring about a new blog post!!
I hope this leaves me as quickly as it has found me but for now...you are loved (whomever you are that reads my blog!) but I just don't wanna write anything today and maybe not even tomorrow!! But when I do feel like writing again...you will be the first to know, hehe!!!

We had our follow-up appointment with the surgeon today. It has been almost a month since Presley's surgery. Dr. C was very impressed with how well she is doing. She is eating two more ounces each feeding and has added one more feed per day. Woohoo!!! Her heart beat is just as normal as can be. Amazing!!! She weighs, wait for it...12 pounds and 2 ounces. But let me just tell ya, she looks fatter than that! Can I just say how excited I am to hear all this great news!!
And this great news leads to happy endings! Because, now we can stop the medication she has been on for the last 6 months! And we can start mixing her formula regularly now!
I am so thankful for Dr. C. She may not have the best bedside manner but she can perform an open heart surgery with the best of them. I am thrilled to start this new routine with my baby girl.

...and no it was not for him. He picked out a prize for his sister. It was the first thing he showed me when I picked him up. He was so proud. He exclaimed, "I got something for Presley!"
Therefore, this is me, taking a dose of humility for ever thinking this boy could be a "bad" big brother.
