So right now my work life is mainly Early Intervention as an independent contractor and prn work at a local hospital/outpatient center. It's a primarily self-employed, no-guarantees type of existence. Work gets done but much more differently than when I had a predictable schedule and landing zone. So here's a peek at the many offices of Cheryl.
I bought these (rather expensive) stamps when I thought there was a hope of getting back in the schools this year. The kids loved stamping their attendance sheets and I thought these would be a superb treat for them. These sit on my computer desk at home which only gets used when I have to type an eval or print something. Unfortunately there just haven't been many opportunities to use these and it seems a little self-aggrandizing to stamp a "terrific" on my own things.
The mobile office- e.g. front seat of my car! I spend more time in my car than probably anywhere else. It's depressing. You can tell that it's very well used... pictured includes the typical wallet, coat, lunchbox and clip board. But there's also the cat toys for multisensory play, straws and applesauce for sensory sucking, and a Child Guide magazine buried in there.
Speaking of working wear, this lab coat has been hiding in my closet since 2006. You can still see the original folds from the factory! I wore it for the pinning ceremony, used it to store a couple of pins I probably would have lost by now, but otherwise have not even thought of wearing it once. It's also not even close to being the correct size so I am not sure it would look professional if I actually did put it on. Does anyone else have a hiding coat? Or are there mythical people at top of the line facilities that wear them and aren't constantly confused with doctors? I would be interested to know.
