The Pre-Vacation Check List

Greetings readers!

I'm finishing up some rendering on the last couple of videos I had for the week, and thought I'd offer some thoughts on what's going through my head.

I don't know if I love or if I hate the last Friday before a vacation. On the one hand, it's the beginning of the end, and relaxation is not very far behind. On the other hand, before any of that relaxation can come down, there's a laundry list of things that need to be done. Add on top of that the fact that I decided to host a party for our volunteers at my house on Saturday and take a guest speaking gig on Sunday, and the list gets longer and longer. Silly J, silly silly J.

It's harder still because a couple of vacations ago I left some things undone before I left, and so my whole vacation was interrupted by text messages from confused volunteers. Relaxation was nowhere. My head stayed right in the office, even if my body was parked directly in front of a TV.

So my goal today is to get everything wrapped up before tomorrow. It's a tall order. What are the things you feel like you need to take care of before a big break?

I grew up with a mother that always cleaned the house before we went on vacation and I have followed in her footsteps. I, like her, love to come home to a clean house and clean sheets. It may not make it on many people's list other than mine, but I always clean before I go on vacation.
