Apparently, the impending move and transition and change, etc., has me incredibly cranky. I say "apparently" because I had no idea until today, when I went off on one of my editors about an obit he wanted me to do that I didn't see the point of writing. I was argumentative -- not bitchy or pissy, just in prime debate mode about the role of the obits job, whether it was a metro-area-centered position or covered the whole state, and that it was high time that someone actually DEFINED the job because it wasn't clear. I said things that I didn't even know I thought about the job, including my complaint that I don't have a direct supervisor. Wow.

The editor took my arguments with good grace, told me that we'd agree to disagree and I should get started on the obit. Which I did. And then ended up telling him that he was right and I was wrong, because I managed to find a compelling story to tell. (Part of my protests were based on the fact that repeating the guy's resume was a waste of my time and our space, and did the readers no good without context, and how do you get context on a Navy vice-admiral who retired almost 40 years ago? Somehow, I did. Yes, I'm good at my job. *grin*)

So. Not only was I wrong about my job -- and I hate being wrong -- but I also got snappish with an editor who didn't deserve it. Man, I hate that. Normally I don't go off on the powers that be; I just complain to my friends or rant in LJ-land. :) So today's tirade proves that I'm not really OK with everything that's going on in my personal life, even though it feels better than it did before I actually signed a lease.

I hate moving. I hate packing. I hate losing Chris and Becca and the neighborhood. I'm tired of change; I've had too much of it over the past 18 months. I just want the world to stop so I can get off. *sigh*

At least I looked good today. Good hair day, great outfit day. So it could have been worse.
