If I still have a job at the end of this fiscal year, I will be transitioning to a new position.

My coworkers and I have been encouraged by our management to, as time allows, begin to attend meetings and familiarize ourselves with data that we would use in this new position (which *maybe* half of us will still be around for). One of these meetings is a 6 a.m. Tuesday telecon, held at such an hour because of the international participants.

One of my goals for the new year was to start getting more into familiarizing myself with the New Position stuff, since I’d be at a good place in my current task to do so. So I sucked it up; last night I was in bed by 10, my alarm went off at 4:20 so I could leave the house by 5:20 so I could be at my desk in enough time to make my coffee and get to the conference room by 6. And I was here! Early, even!

Only to discover that the telecon is BIWEEKLY, and this is an OFF WEEK.

At least I got good parking.

Ohhhh, that blows!!! If it makes you feel better I got up 30 minutes early today for no reason, I normally watch my neighbors kids before school but she decided to tell me 10 minutes after they were supposed to be here that they wouldn't be coming today. Thanks a lot bitch, I would have slept late.

Any alarm should not be allowed to go off at 4:20am!!! Poor thang'!! I just found your blog and had to pop on over since you were talking about loving Texas!!

You lost me at 4:20 AM. I literally couldn't concentrate after I read that number.

I think you should get extra points for showing up early on the off-weeks. Is there a sticker chart or something to mark such?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, because you are a grown-ass professional lady and they need to keep you.
