Holiday Preparations

Days before we'd leave for a trip, you'd find my mom scrubbing every toilet, dusting every counter top and vacuuming every single room. She always said, "Heaven forbid something happen then my obituary might read: She left a loving family, dishes in the sink, one too many piles of laundry, and a gaggle of dust bunnies."

That would not be her! And now? Not me either. 


More cleaning in this house is done 48 hours pre-vacation than any other time. It's now a proven fact.

All this is to say, I have a list of chores awaiting me!
T Minus 22 hours until we're on the road to Nashville!

  2. I never leave a dirty house when I go away! Ever! Even though I now live in Cali, I am still a southern girl at heart! I love that you clean your house too before you leave!

  3. I do this too!! It's a good feeling when you walk back in your house after a vacation/time away and it's nice and sparkly waiting for you. :)

  4. That's a pretty awesome philosophy! But I can't get down with it. I'm a terribly messy packer, much less make time to clean as we go. I might just adopt it though. I'll try between now and well.... soon!

  5. A lot of people complain about the holiday cooking, but the holiday cleaning is FAR WORSE! Very nice to know others feel the same. ;)

  6. I like to tidy up before I leave, too. That way I don't come back to a dirty house and have to clean after my vacation. Sometimes I just need a vacation to get over my vacations!

  7. This is very much my mother. She was doing this before leaving for thanksgiving and no one but her was retuning to the house. Hahaha. Too funny.
