Pamper Day After Painful Night & Back To Work

Well as I posted yesterday I was having a hydro dilation into my right shoulder joint, while the procedure itself was not too painful, once the local anaesthetic wore off my shoulder, arm and back ached like never before, it was about 3 am before I could get into a position in bed that was okay and allowed me to sleep and I was awake and up again at 6.30 am as I had a busy day planned today.

As today was the last official day of my 3 weeks holiday and I had booked myself in for a pamper day - hair colour and cut, facial, manicure and pedicure and lunch with my Mum in the middle (hairdresser and her beautician before lunch and my other beautician for hands and feet after lunch).

All in all a wonderful and relaxing day albeit with a hefty price tag - still I'm worth it!!

My shoulder has settled down a lot today and have managed only on Panadol, I'm hoping that this last procedure is the one that has fixed my shoulder - it can take up to 3 week before you know if it has worked or not so fingers, legs and everything else crossed.  I am being really positive that it has worked.

It has been a great 3 weeks, we flew to Melbourne for our 31st wedding anniversary and then up to Heathcote to see my hubbies family and celebrated his uncles 70th birthday, then we flew up to Sydney for a few days with our eldest daughter, her husband and our adorable 9 month old grand-daughter.  Then I have had a week at home pottering around, catching up with my Mum for lunch on Tuesday and then one of my friends for lunch on Wednesday. 

My hubby had to go back to work this week and while initially I was very cross that his work had not allowed him to have all the time he originally asked for, my last week has been filled with so many other great things that I soon let go of that.

So on Monday it is back to my job and while I love what I do and the people I work with, I really wonder if it is not time to either work less days or change jobs altogether. The passion seems to be slipping and along with the passion goes the motivation, so I am much less motivated and have been for some time. I believe I will talk to my boss about how I am feeling and see if he would support me dropping down to 3 or 4 days per week on a trial basis over 3 months and see how it impacts on the job and if it gives me back some passion. 

I wonder if this is another symptom of the menopause - or is it just that when you have done the same job for over 14 years that eventually it becomes a drag.  Stay tuned, maybe soon I will have news that I have resigned or changed direction.
