What's the First Thing You Do When You Get Home After a Trip?

Pin it button big

Arriving home after a long trip, we're often tired from the plane or car ride. While it's tempting to continue living out of our suitcase and ordering in food, we know from experience it's just one step from there to complete chaos. So, pour ourselves a glass of something to drink and start...

We unpack our suitcase, shake out our clothes and toss the dirty ones into the laundry. After we're unpacked, we start up a load of laundry. We listen to the messages on our landline while sorting through our mail and answering the email we ignored while we were away. We catch up with friends while we run a bath and then we get into bed early with all our new magazines, sad to be home, glad to be home. Hey, come to think of it, it's not dissimilar from our Sunday night ritual, a transition from one state (traveling, weekending) to another (real life, work life). What do you do when you get home?
