Well... it was a very busy day and no, I didn't get all my notes done. Normally we have a staff meeting on Friday mornings, but my boss is on leave, and my co-worker didn't bother to come in until 8am (she has only made it to work one day on time this week, a couple times coming in a half hour late. I have to wonder what is up with her, if she has something wrong). Anyway... we ended up with some "Equal Opportunity" training this morning. Then I had a consultation with one of my other co-workers (we share a client/couple) before and then again for a few minutes after their appointment with me today. My favorite co-worker, who I thought would be out today was only taking off a few hours early, so he was there today. He came in and asked how in the world I got credit for 17 RVU's (RVU - revenue generating units???) on Tuesday. Well, that was the day I had a family session with 5 people (that was an intake appointment which you get more credit for... because they take longer) and I had a new couple come in that day for counseling so that would have been a little more time and then I had one of my regular families come in (3 more in that batch)... so with those 10 people I saw in three appointments (two of those appointments were an hour and a half long) and then with the rest of the people I saw that day... I guess it ended up adding up to 17. (See... I *knew* I was working too hard!). All week I had contact with 36 clients. Oh... and my *one* co-worker... saw 6 people all week. I think I am working too hard. I did find out that there are two other Social Worker positions open in my area here, but they'd be the same pay (but less stress). And I think I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by work this week, as I may have mentioned, because this week is coming after two rather mild weeks and with three heavy weeks ahead (due to compressed weeks because I'm going to North Carolina September 12-16th. I think when I left work today, I still had something like 12 notes to write, so I *will* be going back into work for a few hours sometime this week (I can't put it off until next week because next week, with only 4 days, is already way busier than I'd like it to be).
Other than that... not much going on... just hanging out with the doggies tonight, watching some TV and I spent a little bit of time on my gazelle trying to get some steps in (because I only took the dogs for a short walk after work).
It's almost 10pm and I'm hoping to get to bed at a decent time tonight instead of staying up so late like I usually do on weekends.
I'm also on call... so I need to be mindful of that.
