HELP WANTED: Many positions available!
Things were supposed to get easier, after finishing my Thirty Days, right? Well, one would think, but with two mares back from Kentucky, and an overdue GST return to do, that doesn't seem to be the case. So let me see, if only I could hire some help, what would I need?
Office assistant - someone to pack up the three painting that need to go to New Jersey, and four smaller framed giclées that need to go to Manitoba, and then take them to the post office (somehow I have to fit that task into today!). Send ad for Queen's Plate edition of Canadian Thoroughbred from designer in - oh look, that one's done!
Bookkeeper - to finish up that pesky GST. Seems my brain has decided it's late already, so what's another day or two? And I can accept having to pay a penalty for late filing; I can't, however, accept the paintings not getting to New Jersey on time, the giclées likewise. Sigh. It's only money, right? Why can't that big chunk I sent them for my income tax be enough to keep them happy? Maybe they're busy enough with that not to notice (hahaha...Rev Canada...right...).
Barn Help - back up to seven stalls, feeding four times a day, keeping an eye on the broodmare due on the 21st, making sure the boys don't kill each other with their antics...really, this is a full time job on its own! This one has the added bonus of physical activity!
Dog Walker - Finn has adopted my parents, so he's good. Swish is a little POed at me right now! But thankfully, dogs are very forgiving.
Rider - two horses here, one horse somewhere else. Various stages of development, from just-broke green, to not-quite-that-green.
Artist - work on commission with rapidly approaching deadline; finish painting to be photographed for a demo at Pirak Studios tonight; attend Open House at Pirak Studios.
Hours are flexible; must be willing to work for artwork. Any takers? :-D
I know...so much to do, why am I sitting here writing this post? Gotta fly!
