My teeth need to kick it up a notch..

So Dr. Jim Cox should be given a medal for putting up with my teeth..seriously..About 2 weeks ago I got a temporary crown put on and made an appointment for August to get the permanent Gold crown put on..Well wouldn't you know, as I was eating a soft hamburger, I manage to crunch into my temp crown and crack it in half..and it comes off.. Well for those of you who have never had a crown, this is the process: They grind your bad tooth down to a stub so that a new, golden crown will fit on top of it and act as your tooth..however, you still have your roots and nerves in your tooth..So you can imagine my discontent when we are getting ready to walk into the movie theatre and my wussy tooth is off! Um, I need popcorn! You all know I don't go to the movie without popcorn!

So I decide How hard could it be to just drink/eat on ONE side of my mouth? Um very. First of all if any of the cold liquid flows onto my exposed tooth its like death. The tooth is insanely sensitive so this leads me to drinking things with my head a site..Chewing was not that bad..Small bites, take it was okay. So I decided I could at least wait until today I call and realize my Magical Dr. Cox is away on vacation in Chicago, but he emails me (because he's awesome) and tells me to call a guy who is filling in for I do, and they agree to see me.. In my mind I'm thinking I'm going to tell him that I'll just put Wax on top of the crown until Dr. Cox gets back...Dr. Tommy Mayhue has a different idea, lol.. He informs me that if I do that I run the risk of getting a bad infection, the crown going on wrong, the crazy sensitivity.. the list goes on and He convinces me to get the new Temp crown made, and I do..he & His staff listen to me cry about it for a bit, and do an amazing job..So seriously, thank you so much to Terri and everyone at Dr. Mayhue's office in Blanchard for saving me.. And for anyone who thinks I just do those commericals for fun, Dr. Cox emailed me ON HIS VACATION to help..Now Thats a good dentist! So if you don't believe me by now, I can't help

It was also awesome that Terri and Megan used to listen to me on the air, so we got to relive a few radio memories. Terri is a superfan, and I love those the most! lol.. She was so sweet to say that she missed me..and I was quick to let her know that I miss radio everyday..but I'm loving Fiona FJ, and loving my new job..My life is on the up and up, (as if I wasn't blessed enough before) and I'm so thankful for all the good folks that I come into contact with each day.

Welcome Fiona FJ!

Well I finally got to get my FJ Cruiser! I had my heart set on Yellow, but everyone kept telling me the resale was horrible, and that everyone hated them..I of course disagreed..But I am also one of the few people that got a bright orange there ya go..So anyway, I got a FJ Cruiser in light blue..I named her Fiona FJ..She sets up so much higher than my car..but man, My car was a good one! I had a Pontiac GJ and she had 3 bald tires and 112,000 miles! She still drove like a charm though! I will miss her, but I do love Fiona..The reason I wanted the FJ was because you can seriously wash it out with a hose..For those of you who know me, you know this is a very important asset..With hauling the dogs around I need to be able to wash something down! lol..So I'm very excited..I'm also excited to have XM radio..In the past I would have felt bad for 'cheating' on my profession..however since my profession has cheated on me in the past year, I'll be partaking in XM Radio!

So I had my first Orientation day at Chesapeake and it was awesome! They went over all the Chesaperks with us, and there are some great ones! I'm so happy to be working for a good company! I also got to meet some new friends and now I get to have some new lunch buddies!

Moms dog store ( is doing great! We've been thrilled with the sales and progress of the store, and its still so much fun ordering stuff for dogs! Speakin of.. Being that its been 100+ degrees lately, its been really hard to exercise the dogs I've been getting up at 5:30 and rollerblading the dogs..I thought they would be excited..but Sawyer has been I guess he likes to get up early and PLAY..but not get up early and EXERCISE.. I can't say that I blame him. Exercise Sucks. But its been good for me too..because we either blade, or walk a thats gotta be good right? Plus I'm going to start going to the Chesafitness center next week, and its got racketball, basketball, and dance dance I'm in!

Somehow for the past 2 weeks I have ended watching "Toddlers and Tiara's"..Why? I have no idea..yet I'm compelled to watch..That hair! That makeup! on a 3 year old! for some reason its awful, yet hilariously awesome to me..Jordan has been watching it too and always looks at me when the little girl is throwing a fit and says "Thats how our kid will be because of you!".. lol.. We'll see..

It Finally happened!

Well On Tuesday I got the word that I'm a real, live, Chesaperson! I accepted the position as a Client Technology Associate! I'm very excited to be working for an amazing company, and a company that offers so many perks to their employees! So I go to Orientation tomorrow and have my official "start" day..Very excited, and very happy that so many people sent me so many kind words, thoughts, prayers, and tried to help..
Its been a long year out of radio..and a hard one at that. I've struggled with feeling like I made wrong career choices, wrong people choices, wrong money choices, and it really just left me feeling like a loser, and a failure. I mean when you go to college, get a degree, get a Masters degree, you think that you are doing all the 'right' things..You go to work, you work hard, you get along with everyone, you do what you are asked..and you think you are doing all the 'right' things..Yet still some things just don't work out. And after you get out of the 'moment' you realize that it was supposed to happen that way..but it still usually causes you some hurt, and heartbreak.
Its been a blessing to find some of my listeners on facebook and even some fans I have at Chesapeake..They will say "I sure miss listening hearing you on the radio" and I always say "Not nearly as much as I miss being on the radio!"..And even though I'm not on the radio now, I do think that maybe later, in some capacity, I will be back on the radio..maybe a Chesaradio station, or an internet station..or something.. I have too many weird things, people, and events in my life to NOT have an avenue to share that with people..So I think it will happen again someday..But right now I'm just excited to have a good, stable job working for a really awesome guy with a really awesome team..It will be amazing to work for someone who not only appreciates my efforts and talents, but actually rewards them, and I look forward to the challenge!
