Coming back from a vacation can be a reality check. After a week away, it is hard to jump into school, work, cleaning, and especially all of the laundry that accumulated over a week in this magical destination:
The last thing I want to think about is all of the dirty clothing, unused clothing, and other items sitting in these bags that need to be put away and washed. Yes, I am hereby officially demanding a FastPass to get done with laundry. For those familiar with Walt Disney World and other Disney parks, you will get that reference. For others, FastPass allows you to get a pass for a ride to come back during a specific time to ride with a minimal wait.
So my question to you this week:
How long does it usually take you to unpack, wash laundry, and put everything away after a vacation?
Disclosure: Although we paid for our own trip to Disney World to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we were given an incredible deal from Disney. Also note that Disney never asked us to blog about this event. As a long time Disney fan, it is my pleasure to share my experiences from the event.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
I agree. It takes awhile to get back into home life routine. Sometimes it takes me a week.
I don’t want to clean, do laundry, cook, nada :)
But I just start with a list and push myself to do things bit by bit.

Is it bad that I still have some clothing in the suitcases we took with us for our Christmas/New Year trip? ;) It’s hard to get back into the routine – and laundry? So not fun!!

You know, I actually missed you last Friday :)
When my kids were young, I was a bit nutty about the unpacking and the laundry. My husband would have been happy leaving everything in the car for a week, which would have made me even more nutty.
Have a great weekend!

It usually takes me a few days . . . depending on how much clean clothes I have left in the house. :-)

Oh getting that laundry done is right at the top of my list although the empty suitcases have been known to sit around in the bedroom for a week or two :)
have a great weekend!

Once I found a suitcase full of dirty, stinky laundry in my closet when I went for a subsequent trip, months later. Yuck. Usually I’m pretty good about it, but sometimes I miss the boat!

I don’t unpack my bag until I run out of clothes and HAVE to….unpacking means admitting vacation is over. :(

With it usually being only NY and I … maybe a day. We have duplicates of everyday necessities that stay in our suitcase so we need only pack and unpack clothes. ;D

Hi! Great article, and totally feel ya on this. Here’s my rule: I give myself the same amount of time I was away to get my routine back in order. So, if I was in vacay for a week, I allow myself a week to get unpacked, washed, and settled back in. I have found it is a reasonable expectation for me and for the fam, and it takes the pressure off!
