It was supposed to be a day of my sitting at my desk a LOT to get caught up on paperwork. Robin actually planned this day for me last week.
As the schedule indicates, first thing was to VOTE. And I had to take pics of this to PROVE to Ellie that kids were NOT at school. She was so mad at me for not letting her go vote with me. She was so sure that kids could go vote. She said her teacher told her that. Highly doubtful.
Seeeee??? no kids!
But there was a hottie there.
And afterwards, I instagrammed a pic of myself saying I'd exercised my right to vote. Because I had little patient contact that day, I decided to wear regular clothes. I get tired of my daily "uniform".
And just as I mentioned in my schedule, I really in truly had THREE computers open trying to keep myself attending to at least one of the tasks at hand. Far left, Pinterest. Middle, paperwork for electronic documentation, and right, John Maxwell webcast that I was also listening to on headphones. Just for the record, I also see a Sonic sweet tea, my new awesome Vera Bradley day planner, a helium tank (a MUST for a pediatric therapy clinic) and a super awesome wall color.
Shall we continue?
And this is where it gets really good.
We were at a dead standstill. And the light turned green. Let me rephrase that... the TURN signal turned green. NOT my straight ahead light. And so, BOOM. I felt HORRIBLE. But I'll be getting her car fixed soon. ANd it never hurts to have been helpful to someone. The girl I hit had been allowed to do some observation at MMPT when she was interested in going to OT school. And her sister, also in the car, works at MedCamps, and my clinic helps out there each year by teaching the staff how to transfer kids from their wheelchairs to beds/ toilets without hurting them or the counselors' backs. It's always nice to be nice.
This is the sweet little girl I saw during lunch. She was out like a light when I put her in her stander.
By the time I got home, things were somewhat calm.
The girls had already eaten. THANK YOU, TODD!
I have absolutely no idea why Ellie had on her bathing suit top. She's Ellie. That's all I can say about that!
Oh wait. She had on an entire bikini. And why not?!
This is proof that TG and I were in the bed watching the election results rolling in.
Next up.... Wednesday. And I'll tell ya. Tuesday was awful!! It wasn't until our personality test on Thursday that I realized why! I am made to be with and interact with people. I draw my energy from these relationships. That's what makes me an "E" vs an "I" introvert. Because I was TRYING to sit in my office and work on paperwork all day long, I was NOT my best self. And I was at odds with who I naturally am. What is the mature side of my personality. I even commented to another therapist at the end of Tuesday that I had had a horrible day, despite having looked very forward to this day because I cleared out my patient load just to do this. Now I know. LITTLE doses of office sitting for me!! And give me PEOPLE!!
