My first day of vacation always starts the same way:
Step 1--Wake up early because the cats want treats.
Step 2--Sip coffee while reading (today I browsed the internet).
Step 3--Feed the dogs.
Step 4--CLEAN THE HOUSE!!!
When I am on vacation, a clean house makes me feel calm and relaxed. I always spend the first day giving everything a good scrubbing so that I can spend the rest of the time doing whatever I want! It can be a lot of work and some chores I am not looking forward to (the floors), but in the end I know it will be worth it! Later today, when I am lounging on the couch and admiring my clean quarters, I will be very thankful that my first-day-of-vacation routine is firmly in place!
Now, if I can just get the cats to feed themselves.....
--Enjoy your vacation!
