If you travel often for business or leisure, you’re probably pretty familiar with the feeling of coming back after a long trip, setting down your bags, and finally getting to relax in your own home. You’ll be able to just kick back, enjoy a meal, cuddle with your pet, and then crawl into your own soft bed.
Except that’s probably not what it’s like. The house is cold because the heat’s been off. The fridge is either empty or full of expired food that you forgot to toss before your trip. Your dog or cat is bouncing off the walls with anxiety because they’ve been lonesome, and your things are strewn everywhere from your hasty departure. You’d like to rest, but you have to unpack your suitcase, do your laundry, walk the dog, and make dinner.
