I picked up my Mini as well today.
At the Waldorf after party, after picking up my Small Egg, to go with my large, I spoke with the Seasonal Reps about getting a mini. Well, two days after Waldorf, I had a week long hospital stint. While I was in the hospital, I called the fine folks at Seasonal and explained my situation. They were kind enough to hold a mini for me at show prices (Thanks, Tim, DAAAA MAYOR and everyone).
The last few days, I finally gathered enough strength to begin eggin'. The T-Bone's never tasted better. A simple hamburger was delicious. I have some big plans this weekend as long as my strength holds.
I did post about my illness over a week ago. No change really other than to say my doctor is treating my illness as if I have MS. While I officially don't have MS, the doctor is aggressive in his approach and since tests have come up positive and negative for MS, he would rather be safe than sorry. I also look at it this whole thing this way: there are people suffering worse than I am.
So I am going to put my Mini together this weekend and have it's inagural cook this weekend as well. Now I have three Eggs. One for each member of the family.
