In A Mood.


I missed last week but there wasn’t much that happened that I needed to write about. Tried a few more juices but have missed this entire week this week. So, need to get it together and restart for the week.

One thing, I do need to vent about is Friday, I was blindsided by getting written up for not being with the patients as much as I should be and basically not being a team player. I was also asked to apologize to the other assistant. I signed the paperwork without a fight because I wasn’t expecting it and I was busy with patients. Normally, if I just vent to someone about it, I will feel better and then move on. But this time when I vented about it, it made me more upset that I have been working my buns off to get everything straighten behind the scenes and still seeing patients but I apparently have not in the eyes of everyone at the office. The part that irks me the most is that I am the one constantly working through lunch and after 530pm every day but I am “not with patients” so how does that work? And how am I so exhausted every day if all I am doing is sitting in front of a computer not getting anything done. All weekend I have woken up thinking about it and wondering were they saw that the other assistant had seen 90% of the patients, when on Monday, the office manager came up to me while I was with a patient and asked me why the hygiensts were sitting the patients and where the other assistant was. I would like to speak to the office manager and the dentist about it, but I feel like they never gave me the common courteous to let me know there was a problem.

I just need to save money and focus on housing and a job in central Florida. I have been in this state unwillingly for two years too long. I should have left the week after the break up. But I don’t regret it fully, I have made friends and memories and travelled.

Headed to brunch. Love food.

Sooooo…..I meant to reread and post that last night. But, I went to brunch and drank until work at 5. Then was told I was suppose to be there at 3. SMH. Thankfully, everyone was extremely chill and I just worked through the drunk and sobered up by the time I was leaving.

Also, meaning I have now been to work today. I didn’t talk to the doctor or the office manager. In the morning huddle, the office manager did address a few things that I was going to address with her and the doctor as well. So, I felt like it was a good start and just to leave it and see how and where it went. I didn’t get a lunch today and I also didn’t check my company email or check in any lab cases or check the schedule ahead of time because I didn’t want to sit in front of a computer too long. *sigh* I am exhausted and hungry as usual. Just three more days until the concert though. So, I am just counting the days until that.

12 more day until we head to Raleigh for the St. Patrick’s Day bar crawl and my birthday.
31 days until Hawaii for a week.
50 days until Orlando for a family trip/extended family (Cole, that’s you and the crew. Pony up).

Until next time,
Kim ❤

4/5 juices.


This week I did four out of five of the juices. I drank them on an empty stomach before I ate breakfast.

Morning 1: I did the beet & berry liver cleanse by Bare Root Girl
It was good. I personally would tone the ginger root down next time, it was too spicy for me so early in the morning. But other than that it was a great start to the juices. I have never had beets before. The broccoli was dried up so I don’t think it really even juiced, but it made about 4 cups. I also cut up all the veg and peeled the fruit the night before. Besides the blueberries, it was a good idea and saved some time.

Morning 2: Kale & Pineapple by Adore Foods
This recipe was great, not too much cutting and so I didn’t need to prepare the night before. My kale was dried up so I used a few extra leaves, but it still only made about 3 cups. But as nervous as I was about the kale juice, it was good. Better than in the past. I think the pineapple helped.

Morning 3: Cellulite and Fat killer by Vivien Veil
This Juice Melts Cellulite and Burns Fat
The recipe was just a lot of peeling the citrus and I am not a fan of grapefruit so I was nervous about the juice. However, it wasn’t bad. Again, I think the pineapple helped cut the bitterness. This juice made well over 7-8 cups. At one point my cup overflowed and I had to empty it into two glasses to finish the rest.

Morning 4: Belly Buster Green Juice by Linda Wagner
This juice was pretty to look at and tasted great. (see the picture on my Instagram @azn_km) I didn’t peel anything in this recipe and it wasn’t bitter at all.

Overall, I am pretty excited about this juices and I can’t wait to try more. I know my roommate is enjoying all the extras. Every morning, he goes to the fridge looking for his part. He was bummed Friday when I didn’t make a juice because I was sick. I eat veggies, not as much fruit, so I didn’t see a huge difference in energy but I did notice I stayed full longer. My stomach wasn’t growling at 10:30am like it usual does when I just eat breakfast. So, that’s nice. My roommate, however, rarely eats a daily serving of veggie or fruits. He says he felt energized after the first juice. I don’t know if it is just in his head or what but at least he is getting more beneficial things in his diet.

Have a great weekend,

Getting ready.


Still extremely exhausted during the week. Working well over 5pm everyday, but it’s not as stress related since moving offices. So, that’s nice.

I finally purchased my tickets to Hawaii in April. So, its time to make time for the gym and healthy eating again. So, the plan is to go to the gym Satuday – Wednesday at 5am before work. I also wanted to try a juice every morning after the gym and before breakfast. But, I had a juicer before with my ex and it was not a great experience so I wasn’t wanting to spend a lot on a juicer. So, I went on craigslist just to see what was on there and there was a juicer for 25$!! I researched the model and new it is 150-200$. So, I figured it was fate that I got it and started the workout and juicing plan. So, I will try to include the juices I liked and the ones I wasn’t a fan of in the upcoming posts. I’m scared to try the ones with beets and the ones with kale again. The kale ones were the ones that made my ex and I stop juicing. They tasted like dirt. But I am going to try them again and we will see.

Also, I have been bowling again the last few weeks. And I picked up a weekend job at the bowling alley to help out at the snack bar, also it helps me know when there are tournaments and leagues start. I like bowling so it is good for me to be around it again. The league I was subbing for was Thursdays and the first week I bowled 138, 148, and 128. Pretty consisted for having not bowled in about a year. Then Thursday, I bowled 167, 191, 158. And hopefully this Wednesday, I will be bowling in a Scratch Double with one of the owners of the bowling alley. So, that will be fun and I’m excited.

Well, I’m looking up some juicing recipes and then headed to the grocery store. Hope this helps get me motivated into making it a habit.

Until next time,

New Chapter.

Hello yawl. I was going to post last week but I got news that I have been exhausted from and I missed the rest of the week before I realized it.

That news is that I now work at a different office in the company. It is 15 mins further for me from my house. But I did get a raise now and I will receive another in June. Not much but it is nice. Also, the office is a new building and it is huge and there is a ton of room for growth, not only with me but for the company.

Now for the exhausting part, the office is much busier than my last office (not a bad thing) but we are currently short-handed (not for long, thankfully) and I am having to clean up some huge disaster of a mess that the last head assistant left. Basically, I am having to go through each treatment room (there are 4) and remove everything out of the room and reorganize all of the drawers so they are the same and make sense where everything goes in each room. All while taking patients. I started Monday and some how succeed in finishing today, minus the abundance of random stuff I now have to filter through. Also, I need to reorganize the lab, sterilization area, doctor’s bur blocks, and the treatment supplies. On top of that, the order is supposed to be submitted tomorrow but I don’t even know what we have and what we don’t have because of the mess I’m still trying to filter through.

But, even with all of that craziness going on, I look forward to going to work. The staff is great at communicating, staying positive, working TOGETHER, and helping anytime we can. They understand that it is going to take time for the flow to happen once everything is in the right place but they are all helping me as much as possible, which is great.

Other than that, I haven’t had energy to go to the gym this week, I last went Thursday night. And the plan was to go in the morning before work, but I haven’t been about to do that YET either. I think once I am more in the routine at the office and we have our third assistant, I will find the energy and schedule to get back in there. But I’m not trying to get myself sick and over-worked. So, for now, I will just have to watch how I’m eating. I am planning to purchase the tickets to Hawaii soon, so I will have a goal to work towards and hopefully that will motivate me even more.

Last thing, I finished my second book, The Last Move by Mary Burton. It was extremely good as well. But some of the characters made me nervous about some of the people in my life. The similar feeling I got with the last book. It’s weird.

Anyways, started a new book that is more towards history. So, we will see how it is. I’m off to read now.

Another snow day.


We had another snow day for the week. Unfortunately, I have been sick. It started Tuesday. Yesterday, we worked a half day. Today we were off completely. Thankfully, I have been able to take meds and sleep and I am feeling a little better. Not pushing my luck though and still taking it easy.

Also started crocheting some mittens. The first one was okay. I still need to do the thumb on it. But I think I understand the pattern more now. And I started a scarf for a coworker before the storm but I ran out of yarn so I need to go get more to finish it. I still have that blanket I need to finish as well. Haha. I have so many different little projects going.

I have had some very very weird dreams the last few nights but I think it is because of all the sleepytime meds I have been taking.

I have started to do the finally research for the Hawaii trip tickets. So, I am hoping to get those soon. I am so excited for the adventure and to see my bestie.

Nothing much else happening, just stopping in for this weeks checkin.

OH yeah my dog headbutted me in the mouth while we were playing outside so now I have a big lip. Haha.

Book #1

Hello people,

I want to start out saying I saw real snow for the first time in my life. 6 inches fell at my house in NC and it was a beautiful storm. I made a snow angel and a snow ball. Mainly, I just stood outside in the snow. I was pleasant. They closed the office for one day and then we had to make up the day the following Saturday. (Def. not ideal)

But with the snow and everything being closed for more than one day, I was about to read. My first book of the year was The Good Widow: A Novel by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke. It was a good read. I found it, sometimes hard to put down. I personally felt that it was a little predictable but there were a few shocking moments. I was a little torn in how I felt for the main character. A few things I felt like it hit a little close to home. I am not in any way a book critic but I would and have recommended this book. It reminds me of Nicholas Sparks’ Bend in the Road (which by the way I highly recommend).

So, I started a new book but I haven’t been about to sit and enjoy it yet. Sunday was my only full day off and I mainly cleaned the house and rested. And with meetings 1.5 hrs away yesterday and tomorrow, I don’t get to enjoy it during lunch this week. So, maybe this weekend.

I hope yawl enjoy the weekend.




Okay, I’m clearly very bad at this blogging thing. I still don’t know what the point of my blog is other than to vent for three months a year. & set up resolutions that may or may not be achieved.

Either way, I am going to attempt this blog again this year.

Today is the second day of 2018 and I must say, so far so good.

Yesterday, I had friends come over and enjoy drinks, food, and a bonfire. It was enjoyable. But it definitely showed me that is not an everyday thing for me. I need my quiet and me time for sure. Although, I did love seeing everyone having fun and I enjoyed the company.

So, for one of my goals this year, I am going to try to read a book each month. So, please if anyone even reads this, give me suggestions. I don’t read enough to say that I have one genre that I love or hate. I have been reading romantic/erotic books but I’m down for any suggestion. I was thinking about joining a monthly book club type thing but I have Kindle Unlimited and I want to use it. I am going to go on there tonight and start a book.

Today, I had a patient & her husband ask me how long I had been a dental assistant (4 years now) and then say that they can see that I enjoy the field. They are not the first people to tell me that, as well as they are not the first ones to ask why I don’t go to dental school. I have thought about going to dental school, however I am not a fan of the fact that I would have to start over as if I had no experience in the field. Also, I’m happy where I am in the field, I’m not trying to own a practice or be responsible for all of the extra behind the scene stuff. I would just want to do the dental part and I feel like being a head assistant with my credentials is perfect for me. It will take time to get to the point where I am at my forever office with my forever work family, but my job title and career is just where I want to be.

With that, I will depart for the time being. See yawl very soon.
