Tidy Tuesday - Go on a vacation :)

Wouldn't it be nice if you could go on a vacation and come home to a perfectly clean house?  Sorry, that's not quite what I had in mind here  :)  But what I AM going to talk about is how going on a vacation helps you see with fresh eyes the things that are all around you.

We get so accustomed to how our house looks that sometimes we don't see things that need to be cleaned or clutter that's accumulated or maintenance projects that have been forgotten.  But when we're gone for a week or so, we come home and it's as if we are seeing our home with new eyes.

I was gone for nine days and while I was gone, my husband took wonderful care of our home, doing the dishes, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, and even vacuuming!  I was so proud of him :)  But I realized that I hadn't cleaned out the refrigerator in a long time and there were a few other household things that I forgot needed to be done.  I hadn't noticed them before I left.

So, I think we all need to go on a vacation every few months to help us keep our homes clean and cared for.  Doing so will also help us appreciate the comforts we take for granted.  Doesn't that sound like a good idea? 

If that isn't possible, you can almost get the same effect if you pretend you're a visitor, entering your home for the first time.  What do you notice?

I'd still rather take a vacation  :)
