I just looked over my schedule for the next two weeks:
Tonight - I'm helping out my Toastmasters' club at the Mayor's speech contest. It's a public speaking contest for kids in grade 11.
Sunday - I'm preaching at church.
Monday - Toastmasters' Club meeting - I'm giving a speech on the Anthropocene.
Thursday - Mayor's speech contest.
Saturday - Toastmasters convention in Toowoomba - I'm in the humorous speech contest, with a description of life in an English village, based on what I've learned from watching Midsomer Murders.
Tuesday I fly to Melbourne. After checking into the hotel, I'll rush to represent Lupus Association Queensland, at a meeting of leaders of lupus groups. I'll be late, because I didn't know about the meeting when I booked the flights.
Wednesday all day is the Lupus 2017 Patient Education Conference. If you're there say "hello", I like to meet my readers. If you can't be there, I'll write about it over the next few weeks.
Thursday, fly back home.
Friday, I start writing stories from my Melbourne adventure. There should be lots of interesting and hopefully useful information for all of you lovely lupies out there. I hope what I write will make sense, because I'm going to be one sore, exhausted, and probably brain-fogged, lupie.
How did I manage to organise all of these things in such a short space of time? Did I forget that I need to take things slowly and not over-do anything? I think the answer is that I haven't been organising anything. I haven't been thinking well enough to be organised. Stuff just happens to me lately.
So, if you don't hear from me much until I get back from Melbourne, you'll know why.
Note registrations for Lupus 2017 Patient Education Conference are closing soon. If you're planning to go, it's time to book yourself in.
