My Tuesday

We have all seen those "Day In A Life" blog posts.  In fact I did one at some point in time but I can't find the post and I am too lazy to look more for it.  All I know about it is that it was while I was in college.  And my life has changed since then and I know y'all are just dying to see what I do during my days.

For me each day looks different from each other.  But from week to week they stay the same.  I know what I do each day of the week (most of the time) even with the many changes that would happen.  I chose Tuesday to show you for a two reasons.  

1.  It was the day I remembered to take pictures of my day
2.  It is was one of my busier days where I have much more going on.

So here it is, what Mosby did on November 4, 2014.

6:30 a.m. Wake up.  Check social media.  Stretch.  Think about what I want to wear that day.  Go potty.  Get ready for the day.

7:00 a.m. Done getting ready and now reading blogs.  Normally I would be cooking breakfast at this time but I was out of food and decided to just go to Dunkin Donuts instead.  So I am wasting time till I need to leave.  And of course the blog I am reading is another "Day In The Life Post"

7:10 a.m. Leave for Dunkin and work.  Make sure to give Brutus kisses goodbye.

7:45 a.m. Get to Lighthouse to start Grief Group at 8.  This week we were finishing going over the Biblical references to our topic.  I love that we are able to make connections like this for the women.  It has become a time where I learn right along with them, which I always love spending time learning in my Bible.   

8:50 a.m. Done with group.  Remind clients they will be seeing me.  Talk to the girls and catch up a little.  I always miss so much over the weekends and I love that they want to fill me in.  Knowing I am not just their "life coach" but also like a friend.  It doesn't happen with all of them, but the ones it does is always great.

9:00 a.m. Get my files and head to my office.  Decide I am tired of the clutter and reorganized for a minute.  And I finally put something up on my walls! Thursday I plan to bring in some lamps to make the space even better.

9:10 a.m. Go pick up my first client.  I say pick up because he is 4 and cannot get to my office on his own.  We then proceed to have a tea party, play darts, open the window and watch cars, and play catch with my question soccer ball.  Overall I call it an awesome session.

9:55 a.m. Drop my client back off at pre-school.  Go back to my office and write in his file.  Go potty.  Talk to some of the caseworkers, the other counselor there, and prep for my next client.

10:45 a.m. While talking to a caseworker and the other counselor again I mention things I am in need of for my office and Play Therapy room.  The other counselor and I are given permission to go to the toy room and find some things I needed.  I was SO excited to finally have some baby dolls and Barbies!

11:30 a.m.  Second client comes in for her session.

12:15 a.m.  Session done.  Write in file.  As I am wrapping up at Lighthouse I get distracted by other clients.  I run back and forth between offices trying to finish up so I can head out. 

12:35 a.m. I finally leave LH and head to the grocery store.  Half way there I get a reminder on my phone that I have a meeting with my school supervisor at 1:00.  So I quickly turn around and make it to the school right on time.

1:30 a.m. Make it to the grocery store.  At this point I am starving and just want to go as quickly as possible.

2:00 a.m. Make it home and unload the groceries.  Finally sit down and eat the yummy salad I bought for lunch since I was starving at the grocery store and always end up buying myself more food than I need when this happens.

2:30 p.m. Watch Gilmore Girls.  Return emails and play on the computer.  Mostly spend time of Facebook and blogging.  A little homework was done.  As in 5 minutes worth.  Look at me being an overachiever!

3:00 p.m. I'm exhausted and since I know I have class til 10 p.m. I take a 30 minute nap.

3:30 p.m. Wake up wishing I could keep sleeping.  Get my things together for class and pack my dinner.

4:30 p.m. First class of three of the evening.  It is my internship class where we get to share about clients and ask important questions.  It is also where we all know I do my best blogging and homework.

5:50 p.m. Break for 10 minutes in between classes.  Prep with a friend for our presentation during out third class.

6:05 p.m.  Back to class and back to blogging.  And time to eat.  I was pretty happy I brought this sandwich with me.  Cubans are my favorite.  Also this class is Psychopathology.  Definitely one of my favorites and I tend to do a little more listening and little less blogging.

7:50 p.m. Break for 10 minutes before our last class of the night, Spiritual Integration.  By this point I am done blogging, done listening, and do not want to present in class.  But Cat and I must.  I actually didn't mind this presentation on one of my clients.  I am always a fan of talking about them when I am allowed to.  

9:50 p.m.  Done with class and time to head home.  All evening I have spent time looking for a sub job and know I will have to wake up early to get one for Wednesday.  

10:10 p.m. Make it home and crash on the couch and cuddle with Brutus for a little bit.  I know I need to go to bed but I want to watch more Gilmore girls.
