Back Home

sad sack
Got back from LA yesterday evening.

I had a great visit out there... well, aside from losing the Emmy (I am now 0-4 all time), but it IS an honor just to nominated, yadda yadda yadda. Some amazing meetings followed, with some amazing people, most of which I can't tell you about... yet. But maybe one day.

And it's always nice to be back in Santa Fe, with Parris, the cats, and the minions. And to escape the LA heat as well.

But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. There's just too damn much. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten. Or maybe to a hundred, depending on your scale.

sigh

There is no help for it, I suppose. Price of success, and all that. And I know, lots and lots of folks would love to have my problems. No one needs to tell me that.

Even so...

(Today's football games did not much help my mood either. Life is meaningingless and full of pain...)

Do your assistants need some assistants?

Could be the start of something big ...

Why don't you make it an even four? I'm available to start tomorrow!

THREE?!?! What do they do? Wait, don't tell me. It takes four people to lift all those manuscript pages you have completed on TWOW! ;)

Perhaps it is time for a 4th bloodrider? I know it's unorthodox ser :)
Hang in there

Maybe your assistants could hire their own assistants? Keep that logic up long enough, and you'll be on top of your very own feudal system. Surely that'd make some of the stress feel worthwhile?

Maybe you could restructure your assistants? Sounds like there's too much crap getting past them.

With great power...
Maybe 3 more assistants? I assume it isn't going to getting any easier

I would kill for 3 assistants. I have 9 attorneys, but I'd rather have the filing done! You're right about teh football. I liver very near SF and even I was rooting for the Jets. What happened to Tebow?

Should you ever need an extra Maester or two for your many duties; even if it's tending the ravens....
