Our vacation is finally coming to a close. Tomorrow morning we hit the road to head back to PA from Iowa. It’s been a fun 2+ weeks, but now it’s time to get back to reality and the dogs. We’ll once again be splitting our 17-ish hour trip between two days, just to maintain what sanity we have left, along with making sure we actually make it home in one piece.
Princess Nagger is looking forward to getting home so she can immediately plan a play date with her friends that she’s missed while gone. Of course her first order of business is to clean her room – that she’s not looking forward to. At least the rest of the house is nice and clean, I think it’s the first year we’ve left on vacation that we didn’t leave the house in disaster mode – probably because we were having a friend house and dog-sit for us while we were gone, and I’m funny about leaving the house a mess when someone will be coming over.
The only thing I’m not looking forward to is the laundry that will need to be done when we get back – I’ve been spoiled with my sister having central air and not walking around like a wilted flower all the time, like I’ll be doing at our house with our random window air conditioners trying so hard to keep things cool. Laundry is not one of my favorite things, add to that a room with no air conditioning to do the laundry in, and I’ll stall as long as possible to get it done. Usually when we return from a long vacation, particularly if it’s a road-trip vacation, it takes me a day or two to finally get back to ‘normal’ and muster up the energy to tackle the waiting laundry.
Which brings me to this week’s question(s):
What’s your favorite (or least favorite) thing about the end of a vacation? Do you tackle the laundry right away, or do you procrastinate a couple of days like I do?
