Forget the food and the sleep

A friend invited me over for dinner last night.  It’s been nearly a year since I was last there.  The timing was excellent after the bad day I had yesterday (which my friend was unaware of until I arrived).  My future at PNNL is on hold/in-question because of my blogging and I needed a distraction.  I wasn’t really hungry even though I didn’t eat lunch.  I did eat and enjoyed the meal before we retired to the living room.  Mostly we talked about kids, movies, computers, and technology.  It was 2:00 AM before we both ran out of steam and I came back to my room.  I answered a couple emails and tried to go to sleep.  It wasn’t possible.  I couldn’t think about anything but the situation at work.  Sometime after 5:00 AM I finally fell asleep for a couple hours.  I woke again and lay in bed where I still am.  Barb called a couple times to check on me.  I’m okay.  No appetite and I haven’t eaten anything since dinner last night.  I’m just not interested.  She doesn’t have an appetite either and jokingly said it was a good way to lose weight.

I finished deleting and editing all my blog postings that were causing the problems.  I suppose it’s possible I missed something but unless they give me a list I can’t really know for sure.

I’m going to start looking for a new job.  This is a very unpleasant position to be in and I don’t want a repeat of some sort in the future even if this episode turns out okay.  Barb’s employer has wanted her to work full time for years and the recently asked her again.  So even if I take a big cut in pay Barb can take up a lot of the slack.
