I Have A Social Life (When Did That Happen?)
Last Saturday, a friend asked me if I'd been out much lately. I hadn't, and we went out to see the new James Bond film.

This week, with the heatwave, I've had lots of invitations from friends who have air-conditioned houses to visit, even if they're not home. Instead, what I've done is turn on my little portable air conditioner and gone back to bed for the hottest part of the day.

Now, I look at my diary and apparently I'm out every day until Monday.  Tonight is weight loss group, tomorrow I'm going to a movie with another friend, Saturday is a Lupus Association Queensland get-together, Sunday afternoon is a concert with another friend, and Monday a trip to Dreamworld with a friend.

I'm quite awed at the fact that I seem to have acquired a social life somewhere.

I'm also a bit concerned that I may have bitten off more than I can chew.  Usually I'm more careful to turn down invitations if I am already committed the day before or after.  Did I seriously agree to all these things? Well, yes. I just didn't until now connect up that I would be leaving the house five days in a row. And, in fact, I want to do all of them.

That calls for careful management, and lots of naps.  So if you don't hear from me much over the next few days, don't worry.  I'm just resting between social engagements. If I do get sick, well, there's lots of people expecting to see me at various places, so someone will be checking if I don't turn up.

Unless, of course the world is about to end, which apparently it is. I'll give you the official announcement by the Prime Minister (it was a joke she did for triple j radio - awesome that our PM would take time out for that). She says it means she doesn't have to do Q&A any more.  For me, it means no more lupus! Sounds like a good deal!.

If you haven't finished your Christmas shopping yet, you're running out of time.  Remember to check the businesses listed in the Lupus Business Directory for gift ideas.  All of the businesses listed are owned by people with lupus or other chronic illnesses. Buying from them helps with the financial burden of living with an illness.
