Life…or something like it.

I have been really Meh this week. Actually, it’s probably a little worse than Meh…I have had tension eating up from under my shoulder blades, up my neck, through my jaw and up to the top of my head, resulting in a steady, dull tension headache. If I’m not careful, I predict that in a few days my neck is going to sieze. :/ So I have made a concerted effort to be mellow this week. Hasn’t always worked, but I can but try. So the whole Meh-iness has led to me doing very little in the way of anything except hibernating.

I have identified a couple of background things that have led to this. One of them is obvious and out of my control…my proposed retirement plan has been rejected 😦 I was eligible to apply for a redundancy payout  under the Govt 3% Efficiency and my application got approved by my home agency but DTF knocked it back on the grounds that I could easily be redeployed to OSS @ Cannington. Right! That is an extra ~30-40 mins communte on top of the hour I would be doing. I do not think this will be happening!!!
So that has been a bit of a downer 😦 It also means that I am going to have to go back to work. My leave finishes at the end of September so I am now looking for something else.

There is a job locally that would be perfect – part time, and doing something I enjoy, so I am going to give it a whirl…however, I have applied with this agency before and every time I have had a “Sorry, you have been unsuccessful” within 24 hours of apps closing, so I am not holding my breath.

Also had one child seemingly determined to do their best to go to hospital. Xrays on a suspected broken arm on Wednesday. While we were sitting in the waiting room he discovered a small lump on his forearm which seems to have been a bite and has swelled dramatically over the last few days and is starting to look a little worrying. And on Friday he managed to smash his knee into a wall (late night laser tag in the back yard) and can barely walk. I am thinking there’s a good chance I will be at the doctor’s tomorrow…But, tomorrow being the start of a new week, I am determined that things will improve! I have decreed it! Let it be known!

So to make it happen, I have set myself a seies of little tasks that need doing around home. Forcing myself to get up and moving and on top of things will go a ways to improving me…I just hope it is far enough.

    I’m sorry that things are stressful and difficult right now 😦 I wish you well with the job hunting… shame about the redundancy. Wish I could say more useful things right now – am thinking of you though.
