My hopes for nearby job transfer have been dashed. They chose someone else for the position. While my ego is not as wounded as I might have thought, it is a blow to plans for separation, etc. that would have "worked" well for dealing with children, others. It would all appear more-or-less normal. They don't need to know everything . . . yet.
But it is not to be. Back to the drawing board, or something.
I need to be off to a working weekend to keep the job I have.
