I'm having second thoughts about hiring the new assistant.   She really wants full time and basically told me if I can't do that by the first of the year or shortly after that she'll have to start looking.  The thing is, I'm not sure I want full time at all.  In my last practice I never had any full time help, only part time. We were both very busy, but it worked great.   I'm one of those people who is happiest when I'm really busy.    When I have help, I have to delegate and I don't get to really get into the zone and just stay there.   I think I'm going to talk to her tomorrow and explain what I'm looking for. She may not want it and if not, that's ok.

I had a long talk with the lawyer who took my old job.  I'd say he's in his early 50s or so. He left private practice to take the job, just like I did 6 years ago.  He doesn't really sound very happy.  He said he was ready for a change and...well...this is a change.  He said he thought it would be busier but that it is a change for him so he guessed he likes it.

Anyway, I came home to feed the girls then went out for a wonderful comfort food dinner of baked chicken (the kind that falls off the bone) with mashed potatoes and gravy and a small salad . Oh and stuffing and cranberry sauce.   It was SOOOO good.  It's a 1/2 a chicken. I ate the dark meat and brought the white meat home.   I had to save room for a hot fudge sundae.  The Green Gables is famous for that.

Then I watched a little TV and went back to the office for about 1 1/2 hours. I love to be down there at night.  No phones, no people. The view out my window almost makes it seem like I'm in a real city, lol.

Hmm... Is this another "danger" of Hi-Def/Plasma TV?  Do people with such televisions tend to buy more stuff from informercials?  Do the products being hawked "pop" more on the big screen?

It was quite the innocuous infomercial...on a digital channel.  NOT HD AT ALL!

The Grill Daddy spokesman promised it would clean the porcelain rack on my electric grill.  The porcelain rack cannot be scrubbed with steel wool or sprayed with oven cleaner.  And stuff STICKS to it like glue.  The Grill Daddy was supposed to apply firm hard rubber scrubbers with steam.

Steam, do you hear!  Steam!  And hard rubber scrubbers.

Why, it was a match made in heaven.  I just HAD to have one.  I envisioned clean, smooth porcelain on the grill rack.

But no.

Not now.

Huh-uh!

On the other hand -- and just for argument's sake -- how many really GOOD folks out there who qualify as assistant can afford to do so "part time"?

You get what you pay for, Cilla...and sometimes, a little delegation might become a good thing, especially if the assistant is sharp and can work independently and pleases you with her work.

We are all, all of us, always here.  

In our thoughts, in our dreams.  

Through good times and bad times.

We see it all, and my dear, we're always here!

Meanwhile, I'm going to do whatever I can to cause this ASShole agent grief, including filing a formal complaint against him with Equity and NYMF.

As they say in some circles:

YOU GO GIRL!
