Friday Five: Whatcha doin'?

Well, the day is half over, and here are the ones I've already done:

1. Exercised. My favorite trainer was there this morning, which was nice, and I indulged in a cafe mocha from my favorite coffee shop after I was finished. (No whipped cream, though! So maybe I did a little more than break even on the caloric exchange.)

2. Drove to our agency's sheltered workshop to meet with a client who is having some roommate problems. Counseling with a person with a cognitive impairment requires a completely different skill set from counseling with a neurotypical person. You have to be very concrete--no metaphors, which is hard for me. You have to be prepared to go over the same ground numerous times. Some of my clients have such a short attention span that they can only hang with me for about 20 minutes, so I have to try to stay focused myself and make those 20 minutes count. I enjoy it, but it's tough work.

3. Met a group of coworkers at a new seafood restaurant (great shrimp!) in honor of our department manager's birthday. To my surprise, they picked up my tab too, making it more of a "March birthdays" lunch. That was nice.

4. Grocery shopping, one of my usual Friday pursuits, along with:

5. Laundry (still in progress).

I try not to work on Fridays, so (2) was more of a "have-to" than a "want-to".

More "have-tos" on the horizon, alas; paying bills and (sigh) organizing my Schedule C info...We have a Family Promise overnight tonight, but we won't be taking Amie this time...Another solitary Saturday is on the horizon, so at least I have plenty to keep me busy...Enjoy your weekend!

I'm leaving bills for tomorrow, although all the days seem to blur together when you're self-employed.

Nothin' like great exercise and a perfect coffee after to start a really good day.

We had a church Cherub/Celebration choir performance tonight which was truly enjoyable and tomorrow is the first official little league baseball game of the season. Wonderboy's team won their practice game 19 to 16! (she gushed with pride)

Sounds like you had an, after all, very good day too.
