Besides the relaxation aspect, the nice part of being away is that when you walk back in the door and drop the bags, you see your home with new eyes. When I left I was frazzled beyond measure. When I returned my house looked clean, bright and airy. Which just goes to show how you can get caught up in the day to day mindview. There are still too many piles and too much clutter, but the step away gives you new perspective to reach in and grab it one bit at a time.
So when we got home, I immediately unpacked wanting to keep that sense of place. Then I did a load of laundry. That was enough. Today I washed the West Virginia dirt off the car and finished another load of laundry. Tomorrow……I think I will clean up the last remaining piles downstairs. All in good time………….we’ll see how long the paced lifestyle keeps up, or down so to speak.
