Scheduled outage

Tomorrow morning I'll be up at an insanely early hour to make my flight to Sydney for Filex. I should be excited, but I've barely had time to think about it.

Usually, I'm so well organised that I'd be all packed by now, but I've not even begun to think about what to pack. I've had a full-on week with clients, I've dismantled my office area and partly re-assembled it (don't have my new storage units yet), dealt with kids on school holidays and, of course, my husband's broken head.

The house is a mess, there's clean washing all over the floor in the lounge, waiting to be sorted and folded, I have nothing prepared for lunch, AND I'm wearing a threadbare hoodie and bleach-stained track pants and I have an invite for arvo tea which I'm clearly not going to make. *sigh*

If I put on my superwoman costume and go at warp speed from now till bedtime, maybe, just maybe, I'll get everything done. Or I could go take a leisurely shower, put on something slightly less disgusting than what I'm wearing, go out for afternoon tea anyway, do my packing when I get back and just say que sera, sera regarding everything else.

Either way, I'll be offline till Monday. I could take the laptop and the wireless modem, but that's just one more thing to carry, and I doubt I'll have much time for computer-based stuff anyway.

Now, where did I put that hotel voucher and the airline itinerary?

Who is that person sat at my desk?

Have the shower and chill out. When you leave tomorrow it will be too dark to see the mess as you head out the door.

If you are in the expo on Sunday I might bump into you. Enjoy FILEX, I hope to be there next year.
