Today was my travel day to CHA. I arrived early afternoon to a lovely 80 degree, breezy, LOW HUMIDITY day. I stress the low humidity because in SC low humidity means it is only 75% humid that day. And 80 degrees for a high.... Not since early April!
I picked up my registration info and got the lay of the land, before returning to my hotel room, ordering dinner and passing out. I had hoped to get four hours of sleep last night, but ended up with only three. I was working to get the last of the DVD sets ready for Doug to mail on Monday, and then I realized that I should pack before going to bed.
It was such a good thing that I did go ahead and pack. Doug, the wonder-man, did not remember that I asked him to wake me at 7:00 am and he let me "sleep in" until 7:45. I had to leave for the airport by 8:20!!! I think we left the house at 8:25, but I was showered and completely ready! As a bonus, I managed to only forget two things, but one was my tool kit (I have three classes tomorrow). I do have some adhesive and my paper trimmer so I guess I will be a doing a lot of borrowing.
I am very excited about my first class tomorrow -- Holiday Cards with Flower Soft. I have seen some of the cards the FS designers have created and all I can say is WOW. I have some flower soft, but feel that I do not use it well. So hopefully that will change.
I will try to give you daily updates while I am here. I do have one personal message to send: MFK! Guess what this hotel stocks in your room? In addition to the coffee maker, there is a wine center. Wine glasses, cork remover, cloth napkin and an ice bucket that could serve as a wine cooler. I thought of you IMMEDIATELY. And yes, Toby! I did take a picture of it for Kathy! Miss you!
