What I did on summer vacation
I know, I know, it's kinda sad. Not only did I "stay-cation" during one of the coldest and most wet early Junes that I can remember, but I also spent at least 50 percent of it washing, ironing, and folding fabric. My eldest daughter coincidentally took her vacation at the same time, so while she went to an island beach I took care of her 11 year old and did my laundry at her house. Had to bring my own ironing board and iron. It worked out well because I haven't really got into corners and decluttered my room in at least 4 years. I was able to tear it all apart and not have to live in it while I took my time putting it back together.
It's been done for a week, and the tidal wash of debris that I used to try and fight daily hasn't reappeared! I love opening that door and seeing floor and even patches of baseboards. I even found another window I had totally blocked off (not that I really wanted it with my daylight-shirking self)!
All in all, not a bad way to spend vacation. I still snuck in a couple restaurants and swimming pools.
