Could you repeat that?

I think it goes without saying that the past few months have had their challenges.

When my department isn't being re-orged, I'm obsessing about what I'm putting in my gaping maw. And then at what rate it's leaving the other end.

Or if that's under control, then it's the knot on my head, which is back - and let's not ignore the fact that I'm getting assorted bills from that debacle, which means that I'm going to have to get on the phone with my insurance company.

So, I get a call from my Old Boss on Friday asking me how my schedule looks on Monday. It happens to be the one day that is free and clear, and that apparently is good, because he wants to give me my review.

Now, I have it on excellent authority (via my New Boss) that nothing about money has been decided, and since all the goals I created for my review were related to being in Support, there's really nothing that Old Boss can tell me that I don't already know. My score will be in the 3 range, which doesn't mean anything based on the fact that no money has been allotted yet.

So, a man who is no longer my boss will be reviewing me for a job which I no longer have and he won't be able to give me goals for the year.

Which leads me to the question...what's the fucking point?

Again, I know that New Boss has already done all her reviews. Has she set up goals for me? I don't know. This week, she'll be onsite with a client - so it's just me and my team member, and then the other Implementation Specialists (like my new title?) rocking it out.

But, I got the whole weekend to ruminate on it, and that was awesome. Because, as you may remember from posts past, the whole review thing traumatizes me to begin with. I dreamed about it a few times.

And if that weren't enough, I was starting dinner tonight, and the sink completely backed up. Matt and I spent several hours trying to free up the pipe, and now it's looking like we're going to be calling a plumber. Really, what is the universe trying to tell me?

If I figure it out I'll let you know.
