I Need a Double

I need to clone myself.

Seems like this time of year every year at work I'm always busier than a incontinent cow in a peeing contest.

Big Boss is heaping stuff on me, which is fine, I appreciate that I get to be a bit more than an average paper pusher, but sometimes I think he forgets that I work for three other people.

And this past week it's been five other people. A secretary I back up went on vacation for eight days. I don't mind that either--but it would have been nice to know before she left.

So tonight I will take my shower, hop into my jammies, crank up the tunes, let the Springs nest on my lap, and--type a handbook.


Maybe I can get Moochie to do it for me.

That Moochie sure takes some cute photos!

I hope the Big Boss will keep all this hard work in mind when it comes time for raises and/or bonuses. There's nothing worse than an unappreciative boss.

Look at little Moochie! So adorable!

Good luck with work. We're getting ready for trial at my place, so I can empathize.

Wouldn't you love the look on the boss's face when he sees that manual typed by his assistant's assistant!
Never mind daycare, that boy needs Mavis Beacon :0)

Bug came to work with me at my office for the first four years of her life. Mostly she helped me with the office work but by the time she was three I sent her downstairs after the lunch rush to bus tables and fill the sugar containers.

I think it was character building.

Moochie is too cute.

I feel for you & work. We have had some staffing issues lately & I know things aren't going to get I'm sure I will be asked to pick up extra hours. I will help with paying for our trip.

Love, Aunt Susan

1. Awesome asian spam comment just before me. FUN!

2. How the hell can you leave on an eight-day vacation and not let the person who is going to cover for you know that you're leaving?

Good luck!

When your assistant is finished with all your projects, please do let him know I have a long list of stuff that needs doing....

Cindy, you have no idea.

Bezzie: SEX. I love spam...

And after today with my own three kids plus one of Bug's friends thrown in for good measure, I believe I need a double too. Scotch, that is. Neat.

Ok - I'm not usually a fan of baby pictures, but this one actually made me laugh. It's like he came straight from Dell... some assembly required. ;)

He looks so natural. It's fascinating the way kids love keyboards. We're breeding an entire generation of techies.

That baby looks ready to go to work. All he needs is a driver's license.
