I woke up at 4:30 this morning and had a hard time getting back to sleep. Once I did finally fall back asleep, I hit snooze and re-set the alarm many times, so I didn't end up getting out of bed until 8:45. Ugh. I barely made it to the office around 10:30, and I only made it by that time because I had a meeting on my calendar.
I mentioned before that I may have to cancel my July 4th trip to D.C. in order to do a trial for one of the partners. I've never been happy about this prospect, but I've been really angry about it the last couple of days, for a few reasons. Also, I called the airline yesterday to see what it will cost to change our tickets and learned that it will be $100 per ticket plus any change in fare. (Given the current price of fuel, I am 99.9% certain that any new fare will be higher.)
I am beginning to give serious thought to finding another job. Between my workload and pace these last weeks and now this--someone unilaterally deciding that I have to cancel a trip that I got approval to take over 3 months in advance--I'm wondering if this is somewhere I want to stay. I don't mind working hard, but I also don't want to work so much that my job consumes my life. . . . and that's how the month of May felt to me. And I certainly don't want to work where I cannot even plan a short vacation without fear that it will have to be cancelled because of someone else's plans.
I have been in a pissy mood all morning between being tired and having a hard time getting up and thinking about this situation at work. Grrrr. . . . .
