Hi, I am back from the EGA seminar and caught up enough with life to post. You may want to grab a cup of tea because this could be a long post. My first day, I got settled into the condo and took a run down to the hotel to see how long it would take and to go to dinner and shopping with some friends. They wanted to buy food for their hotel rooms.

The reason I got some stitching done was that we had a four day weekend for Labor Day and I had Stanley Steamer come in and clean. I sat on the front balcony and stitched while they cleaned. They are huge on up selling but I am so pleased with what they did. Now some pieces really cannot be saved like some of the furniture that needs to be recovered and the carpet is going to be replaced but even if they are kind of trashed, they are clean. The most impressive thing they did was deep clean the hardwood floors. I was going to have them stripped and redone when I replace the bedroom carpet but this deep cleaning made them look like new. They shine! They had 10 years of soap buildup that I did not realize was there. We did have a big party on Saturday but things stayed relatively clean. Fortunately, the kids were happy with Apple products, XBox and the park.
I leave tomorrow for EGA National Seminar in Naples. I have been packed since Wednesday. The condo is open and the car services are arranged. I cannot wait for the fun to begin. I hope to learn a lot, stitch often, shop, and relax. I will try to remember to take pictures and I will post if I can. I am not sure if there is a laptop or if I can post from the IPad.
Have a nice weekend.
