I get to spend this week in beautiful Oxnard. It actually is quite beautiful, despite the crude sounding name of the city. I’m staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel Mandalay Beach Resort
where I get an entire suite to myself for the week. I have two bathrooms, two TV’s, a living area, a kitchenette, and a bedroom. It’s quite a place. The reason I get this mini-vacation is because I’m attending a conference put on by the company that does direct mail for the organization I work for.
It should be an interesting week. I came to this conference last year and had a good time. This year I am the sole representative for my organization. In some ways it’s nice to be by myself, but it is a little lonely, and I don’t have a built in meal partner, which makes things a little tough for someone who’s a little shy, like me. We’ll see how it goes. Tonight wasn’t too bad.
Check out a couple pictures I took this evening of my home away from home.
This is the living area. See my MacBook beside the couch? That’s where I’m typing right now.
And here’s the place where I’ll be sleeping. Hopefully it’s a comfortable bed. I’ll let you know.
