When working on an hourly basis, you can confuse clients when sometimes you try to talk about a few hours here and a few hours here or there.

Simply things and just give them these 3 numbers:

$ Billed to date __$xx__(accurate on Tuesday)
Burndown Days Remaining __8__
Calendar Days Booked __4days x 2__
Next meeting (for Review and Retro)
