Help Wanted: Personal Assistant

I kind of really like the idea of having a personal assistant.  You know - someone to do all the stuff I really just don't want to do.  He or she would:

  • Arrange the chairs in my classroom at 11, rearrange them for the middle school choir at 12:15, and then put them back how I like them again at 1:15
  • Move the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer (I can barely reach in there... c'mon!)
  • Hang up my clothes at the end of the day
  • Keep track of my keys, wallet, and cell phone
  • Charge my camera battery
  • Keep my kids' shoes in pairs and in their closets
  • Remove items I don't need from my car
  • Keep track of library due dates
  • Make bank deposits
  • Ensure that Alex has one clean pair of pants without holes in the knees ready for each school day
  • Bag my groceries
  • Fasten my seat belt, lock my front door, and place any needed daily medications in my open palm
  • Stock Carmex in my purse, laptop case, diaper bag, primary tote, car, and each coat/jacket pocket; remove Carmex before I do the wash
  • Prompt Adam through the first several sentences he seems to always need to say before he gets to the point; cue me when it's my turn to listen
  • Organize my electronic files
  • Mop the bathrooms
  • Clean up spilled drinks
  • Make copies
  • Keep my water bottle full
  • Enter grades into the computer
  • Drive carpool home
