Procrastination and I are no strangers to each other.  We are, dare I say, great friends.  Our relationship is one of the longest lasting relationships in my life, rivaled only by my relationships with my three sisters.

This was written in response to BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo writing prompt: If you had a personal assistant who would do your most dreaded tasks, which items from your to-do list would you assign out?


 

Immediately, I conjure up images of television “personal assistants”; Niles, Tony, Mr. French. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a butler to help me through the day?  What would my personal assistant do? That’s easy everything I don’t want to do or can’t do. Continue reading
