It's Thursday! That means, today at least, the powers that be x3 or so talk about my half time possibility. I met with the CEO and Office whateversheis Tuesday and they provided lots of reasons why it would not work, including the time zone issue would make it difficult to participate in meetings. Huh? The example they gave was with the former president who was in the same time zone and it was so difficult to have meetings with her. Um, she was/is a highly influential and busy woman. Even if she were in the same time zone it would have been difficult! Oh, and the fact that in a couple months I might get the job of my dreams and thus they'd have to deal with someone new anyway. Um, that could happen with a full time employee!
So, ultimately I don't care one way or the other. I tried though to argue for it in the meeting, because it would be a good thing to have. though I'm sure I wasn't as convincing/forceful as I could have been, in part because when I say I don't care, I can live with either outcome. I just want a damn outcome!!! Now!!! M has said to me that if I want I could just take the possibility off the table if that would help me keep my sanity. I know he really means it, but yes, it would be good to have the income (to say the least). Speaking of income, I'll work until the last day in May (in part for income, in part because I'll get a free holiday, and in part because we've pushed back the move a little to make life less stressful and so he/we can go visit with his high school friends in June).
It's coming quickly!!!
