Now Accepting Applications

I seriously need to hire an assistant. It’s not that I have so much work that I can’t handle it. No, it’s simply that I am lazy and unmotivated and this is the second day in a row that we come to the end of the day only to find that I have accomplished nothing.

I have a fairly hefty list of stuff I need to do. Here is a brief excerpt:

  • Call psychologists, choose one, and make appointment for D’s eval
  • Figure out if S. has encopresis
  • Call the bank and ask them to reverse the overdraft fees seeing as it was the first time in my life that I totally screwed up the banking and managed to overdraw the account
  • Re-order the magazine subscription that Amazon screwed up that was supposed to be my sister’s second Hannukah present
  • Buy Baby J. some sleepers that fit him and that have feet
  • Find some paying work to do

You’ll note that NOTHING on this list, NOT ONE THING should really take more than, oh, say, an hour. This is representative of the entire list. It’s just that each item actually involves some sort of effort on my part, and… I am lazy.

Someone, please, kick me in the seat of the pants or something.

While I cannot offer to completely purge your list for you since I finally got a job, I can offer you some good bran recipes to help with S's issues. What size is J in? I might have some hand me downs.

A fellow procrastinator! My list is similar, and would only take such a short time to complete. I keep telling myself that I can do it tomorrow.

I happened upon your blog by way of a comment you made on someone else's blog. I think your comment was about how fertile people are unjustly criticized... Anyway, I loved your comment, so decided to check out your blog and have been enraptured by it for about a week now!

I would really love to find new employment, my job is not what I would like it to be so I’ve spent my days at work reading your entire blog starting with January of last year. I wasn’t going to comment until I got through everything and then I was going to email you about how much I enjoyed your blog. (I still plan to write that email once I’m done reading…) Just wanted to comment on this post though – getting to know you through your blog, you and I sound a lot alike  Being your assistant would have been a dream job for me.

I have bookmarked your blog and will continue through till the end then check back periodically for all your new posts. That email is still to come too… Thanks!
