My AWESOME new job and getting settled!!
When we first moved to Vegas, i was feeling so discouraged with job hunting. i couldn't find anything or anywhere to work with good pay and good hours. Shane was gone all day at school and then he would have to come home and study. I spent all day by myself. It was such a lonely time for me. we were away from everything we knew and I had no where to go and no one to hang out with. there were many days that i would go the whole day without being able to talk to anyone. I'm not gonna lie..i got kinda depressed! there was one day that Shane got home from school and i just hugged him and started to cry. It was so hard for me to go through this. I'm the type of person that loves having a lot of people around and friends to talk to, so to not have that anymore was so hard! Shane knew exactly why he was supposed to be in Vegas..to go to PA school of course. but what was my purpose now? it was tough waiting and waiting. Heavenly father may not answer prayers when you want him to, but he always answers them on time. i love that saying. it is so true. i think i needed that time to myself. i needed to reflect on some things and what was really important. It made me realize more then ever how much i love time with Shane. Us moving to Vegas has strengthened our relationship more then ever. We don't hang out with many people here and so most of the time all we have is each other. i am loving it! We have so much fun together and its so fun how much more you get to know a person after two years of marriage! I love that Shane now knows me better then anyone! ANYWAYS...enough of the mushy talk and back to my job..haha
i have loved every minute working at the dental office. I also love wearing scrubs every day. they are so comfy and i never have to pick an out fit out! since i have been there i have been working as an assistant and helping in root canals, fillings, and crowns. I also get to bring patients back, clean, polish and floss their teeth and take xrays! i love it. time goes by so quickly while i am working there! part of me is kinda sad to move to the front of the office and work there because i feel like it will be more boring. it will be more to do with insurances, patient files, answering the phone and all the sit there and watch the clock kinda stuff! hopefully i am wrong and i will love it but i just love where they have me now so i don't know if i will like the change. the people that work there are also very nice and just great to work with!! The other dentist in the office has also been so kind! he had a really nice video camera that he never used and gave it to me! what a kind person. i offered to pay but he wouldnt let me. he made me promise to return the favor to some other younger college kid someday and do something kind for them. Well thank goodness for people like professor Jackson that are willing to take time out of their day to help those in need even when they don't know them. and now i will get to clean his teeth some day! haha There are also many famous people that come into our office because it is right by the strip, and its so fun getting to meet them and realize they are just people too. I have been MUCH happier since working at this job. it keeps me busy and now i have a purpose here besides supporting shane in school..of course! YAHOO for blessings!
