Each time our family leaves the house for more than a night, I like to spend the day getting the entire house neat and clean. I suppose I fear that the knowledge of a toilet in need of scrubbing back home will prevent me from entering true relaxation mode on our trip. Plus, a clean home is such a pleasant thing to come back home to.
So today, I press on. One more bathroom to clean. Groceries to buy, and bags to pack tonight. Tomorrow, we're off to a secluded cabin by the creek to enjoy each other and God's creation without the disruptions of our regular lives. I am looking forward to it.
