How To Tell You've Been On Vacation

1.  The suitcase is still unpacked because you cannot face unpacking all the stuff you came home with, much of which you didn't use because you wore the same clothes several days in a row.
2.  The only thing unpacked from your cosmetic bag is your toothbrush and deoderant.
3.  The cats are permanently attached to your leg or the keyboard of your computer as you try to type.
4.  The hamburger patties you cooked before you left are still in the refrigerator because nobody wanted to eat them, making you realize you should have gone ahead and thrown them out before you left.
5.  The dishwasher is loaded in a totally crazy way, meaning somebody else loaded it who is not as anal retentive as you are (which means instead of having all the spoons in one compartment and all the glasses arranged by size, the glasses are all willy-nilly and the forks and spoons are cohabiting in the same compartment).
6.  Your mail slot is full of bills, and they're not even your vacation bills.
7.  By the end of the day, not only can you barely remember what you did on vacation, it seems like it was a million years ago!
The Good Stuff From Today:  celebrating Maribeth's birthday with lunch at J Alex; Everley time; getting a task complete (out of a task list of thousand of things to do)

This situation is completely acceptable for 6 weeks or until you need the suitcase / cosmetics bag for your next trip, whichever comes first. I'm guessing it will be the latter for you :-).
