Okay, really quick, because I have to run in a second and finish getting ready for my Christmas party tonight. (And by the way, I just read Jason Bane's blog entry and this is a Christmas party, not a holiday soiree, so Merry Steve  to everyone.) But get this. I know I'm not the only one who will spend the next two weeks in a stressed-out frenzy interspersed with happy moments of holiday bliss. Happens every year, and mostly, I love it. But for those days when you really just can't manage it all? Get an assistant. Check out Kim McCauley's business -- It's a Matter of Time.  She'll get your stuff done for you for $25 an hour. And she comes highly recommended for efficiency, so you'll get your $50 worth if you need her to handle a few extra errands. She does deliveries, grocery shopping, gift shopping and wrapping, car services, house sitting, pet services, shipping services... the list goes on . She's taking new clients, she doesn't mind one-time holiday helping projects, and she's even offering 25 percent off for services this week. I'm sold.
