A friend of mine mentioned to me the other day that it’s possible to hire an intern to help me with my business, my blog…whatever I might need. So I got to thinking … forget my blog, what would I use an intern for in my home life? That’s where I could use some help.

Can I teach someone else to do what I do? Every.Day.

How on Earth could an outsider even begin to understand the complexity of my life? Let alone organize it.

Ah, but wouldn’t it be nice…

  • imagine all those therapy, doctor and surgical appointments booked and written down on an actual calendar – not on a scrap of paper as I am sometimes prone to do.
  • imagine phone calls made to DME to dispute the wrong Trach tube size or lack of suction catheters and gloves – think of the time I can save myself from being on hold. Not to mention the frustration.
  • imagine my car filled with gas or my clothes washed, folded AND put away.
  • imagine being able to follow up on all those therapies every week – the therapists would probably keel over while SQUEEE-ing with delight.
  • imagine not needing to reasearch for or negotiate an IEP – yep, just send the intern.
  • best of all, I would let the intern handle all the nursing issues.

This could be a good thing, this intern idea.

I wouldn’t need to clone myself after all. I could just be available for the cuddles and kisses, and you know and all the fun stuff. I could leave the eye rolling and the head scratching to the intern.

Anyone else interested in an intern? What would you have them do for you?
