It is with most embarrassed apologies that I make this entry. I have been out of touch with nor warning to anyone due to extreme health issues. I have a disability that affects my head and it has slammed me to the floor for the past month (have not worked since 28 FEB 2009 - sight).

It bother mes to go a couple of weeks without having logged in. It bothers me much more to have hosed up a math trade, my own auction, my local guild (BoardGamers of Michiana, pbem games I have going, and whatever else I cannot even remember at the moment.

There are no good excuses for not keeping up. I can say that because I allowed myself to get overextended while not doing well and did not pull the plug in time to prevent problems. Thank you to a guys in our local guild who have stepped up an tried to keep me from totally screwing everyone. I do not intend for anyone to be hurt by all of this.

I will probably not check the geek again until sometime in mid January. I have an offering in the end of the year lottery (NOT games for geek gold) and will draw it as soon as possible to 01 JAN 2010 as I am physically able to do so.

God willing, I will be back.

Something very similar happened to me four years ago, with mental health issues--hosing trades, the whole nine yards. I spent some extended time away (as shown by my supporter badges), for things to heal up. You're in my thoughts, and be well.
