It’s been so long since I’ve been here that I almost feel like I need to ask permission to come back.
It’s been a rough road the last few months. I have had several health issues. I won’t get into a long list of what ails me, because I always felt like only really old people talked at length about their state of health. I will say only that I am still battling a mild case of MRSA which is a Staph A infection that is resistant to most antibiotics. I also have a job-related injury to my right hand/wrist (the same wrist that was broken a few years ago) and I’ve put a lot of my attention into fighting for approval for my Worker’s Compensation claim. It was finally approved last week, but I’ll be off work for another few weeks while I work on getting a release to go back to work! It’s ironic; first I fight to get United Airlines to recognize that I even HAVE a serious on-the-job injury and once they finally do admit that——then I have to start fighting to prove that I’m recovered enough to go back to work! Ah, bureaucracy is a tough enemy sometimes.
I have to admit that, several times in the past couple of months, I’ve thought that I will never feel good to plan EX 6.2. I was overwhelmed.
But, I’m feeling good now (aside from the inconvenience of having a broken right wing!) and I’m BACK.
I’m ready to get busy now, and make EX 6.2 happen!
If coming to an EX 6.2 gathering in San Diego/Oceanside CA (where Dale lives) is still important to YOU, please check in with me in the next few days.
I’ve narrowed it down to two hotels. But I’ll need to get an estimate of how many EXers are interested, to see if I can get a group rate.
The dates that would work the best are either October 12-14 or October 19-21. Take a look at your own calendars and let me know which weekend you prefer.
We don’t have to get a huge group to have an EX get-together! Even a few people is enough! So let me know in the comment section below if you are interested. You can private-message me your personal email address so I can be sure to get all the information directly to you.
In the next couple of days, I’ll be putting out hotel information, a tentative itinerary (including the scenic train ride up to Oceanside to eat chile rellenos with DALE!), and a list of activities you might want to pursue on your own.
It feels good to be back among my friends! And I’m really looking forward to getting to know some of the EXers that joined while I was away!
