    After working seven days a week for three and a half -years, I said no more and took off over Easter weekend. Still ended up doing papwerwork on Sunday for three hours though. GRRRRRR!
    As of yesterday, early afternoon, I went out and hired a part time secretary.
    She's not my type of woman, so no hanky panky, is younger than me (pretty much who isn't these days) and should be able to free me from some of this paperwork.
    I did this for three really good reasons-
    1. I needed help on data entry, the shear volume of reportables is annoying
    2. I needed to maintain a more active presence with my clients/crew
    3. I am not appreciably happy when I work on my ass crack in front of the computer - so the hourly compensation of the secretary is worth it to me so I can enjoy my evenings more.
