So, I just got back from a lovely vacation. Well it was more of a “staycation” but it was still lovely. I went down to Vegas for a couple days of rest and relaxation. And it was while I was in the middle of ordering a poolside drink that something hit me:
“I have to go back to real life tomorrow!”
I tell you what, there are a lot of thoughts that can ruin a perfectly awesome day, but none quite so thoroughly as the thought of having to return to real life after a great vacation…staycation…whatever.
Maybe the worst part? Walking in the door to a dirty house.
I was in such a hurry before my trip that I didn’t take the time to clean. And I regret it. It’s not like I left open milk cartons and dirty socks laying around, but that is exactly the smell that assaulted me as I walked in my door. Ugh.
There is a spot on my carpet and I’m pretty sure is new. When I say new, I mean I don’t remember it so it had to have happened while I was away. Scary thought, that. I guess the good news is that I’ve got a friend who is a St. George carpet cleaner (you know who you are…Antonio!) who I’m calling as soon as I’m done writing this post.
Unfortunately I’m sure he’ll only want to clean the spot on my carpet. I wonder if he accepts bribes? Maybe if I offer him enough, he would clean the rest of my house too.
Anyway, I guess the point of this post-vacation rant is to say this:
Take the time…NO! Make the time to clean before you go. I’m not saying a clean house will completely eliminate the post vacation blues, but it will definitely go a long way to assuaging some of it.
