I've always thought that - a vacation from my vacation. I try to plan a couple of days at home before heading back to work -- laundry, grocery shopping, bills, etc. Although I'm not a super neat person, I like my house nearly spotless before I leave -- something about coming home to a clean and orderly house (reminds me of my grandma).
Me too it is part of why it is so stressful in our house just before we leave on a vacation. I am trying to make my house cleaner than if I was expecting my MIL at the same time as trying to get ready to go. But so nice to come home to a clean house.
They are repairing some damaged plaster at work in my office and the boss's office as well as a reading room and one of the halls. It made the day chaotic. Add to that a youth group bus parked out front whose alarm was going off for hours. I finally found the group it belonged to but man did it ramp up the irritation level till I did.
