Help Wanted...


  • someone extremely energetic and motivated to drag my butt out of bed every morning after days of working full time, picking up my little man, fixing supper, playing Star Wars, Ninja Turtles, and pirates until bathtime, working on my masters (which is overwhelming already), and eventually falling into bed. This person should be ready to defend themselves when asking me to get up at 6:30 a.m.

  • someone who can program our TV to only run the cartoons "Star Wars," "Tom and Jerry," and "Scooby Doo" over and over no matter what time it is. This person must also be willing to face the ramifications of this not happening - which would be a 3 year old little boy screaming like a banshee.

  • someone to sit beside me and continuously pass me ice cold Mt. Dew's throughout the day.

  • someone to teach me how in the heck to work a Mac computer - which is essential to my well-being for the next 12 months. It would also be helpful if this person knew the basics of writing papers, doing online discussion, knows lots about education, can create videos on the web, etc...I 'm just saying I might need input from time to time (cause I have no clue, people!)

  • someone who will be my personal shopper and always have new jeans for me since I'm gaining weight and can't fit my big butt into any of my old jeans. Did I mention that this person will also be financially responsible for the shopping trips:)

  • someone who is an expert in nutrition and can get my little man to eat anything besides cookies and chips....and candy and cereal. Hey - at least he's well-rounded:)

  • someone that has been to beauty school who would be willing to do my hair every morning. Just a warning, you must know how to do other things beside put my straight hair in a ponytail (which is all I have mastered)! Oh...and I forgot to say it needs to take approximately 3.2 seconds (which is the amount of time I have alloted in the morning for my hair).

  • someone with an accounting degree who is good with paying bills when there is no money in the bank. Can't be that hard, right??

  • someone to draw a steaming hot bath, fill the tub with bubble bath, light a candle, and have a good book waiting to be read - O, wait...I don't have time for that. Scratch that idea.

  • If you know anyone who would be willing to do all of the things listed for little to no pay - send them my way...THEY ARE HIRED:)!!

Ok, ok, I'm teasing. But I needed to relieve my stress somehow, right?:)

Too funny! I wish I could help you with some of those...If we still shared an apartment, I could surely fill the hot bath for you and find some Twix for you to eat while you enjoy your book. ;) I've never used a Mac, but Shawn & Greta might be able to help you with that one. Oh- Braylee really loves Tom & Jerry too!

Abbie- you crack me up:)!! I guess I should be enjoying these last 2 1/2 semesters of college then, right?! Hope all is well with you and your little man; miss you both!!

I'm not sure that I'm good at any of those things, but I do want to tell you I'm praying for ya, and I just love your sweetness :)

Could definitely answer a few questions about the Mac...owned one for 6+ years. And my hubby has an accounting degree...but sounds like a real life "loaves & fishes" miracle would help you more with the bank account!! Loved reading the list; thanks for sharing! Think of you often.
