I did it

I emailed Wonderwoman this morning to let her know I needed to talk to her on Friday when she is in. I think she must have sensed something was up and the next thing I knew she was calling me. Of course, the email I sent her at 8am was not read until almost 12pm. So much for "working" from home. In her message she said she wanted to talk to me NOW, and not Friday.

In any case, after a frantic call to DP to rehearse what I had written down to say, I called the director of the new program to make sure she was for real. She was and I called Wonderwoman and answered lots of unrelated questions when she asked me what I wanted to talk about. I said I had heard about another position that would be coming available and I was interested in applying. She said, "well, I am sorry you are not happy in this program" I stammered and said that it was really about persuing a situation where I would have increased opportunities and responsibilities. She asked what department it was in and I told her, and she said "I wouldn't want that job, but if that's what you want, I wish you the best of luck." I could tell she wasn't happy, but what can I do. It is not my responsibility to take care of her, right??

Oh well, just wanted to update. I have a meeting/interview with the Director of the program and the assistant director next Wednesday during lunch. Provided that goes well, we can talk about transitioning and a start date. She is on vacation after Wonderwoman is on vacation, and when she comes back Wonderwoman goes on vacation again. This could be a long transition. . .
