The first thing I usually do when the kids are away visiting is clean the house. I get to enjoy its neatness and cleanliness for an extended period of time. When the kids are around the messy doesn't bother me - it comes with the territory, and a neat house isn't super-high on the priority list for me. Then I'll probably continue on like I usually do with life: Getting up early, sitting and having coffee reading a book, a little online perusal, a whole lotta GTD, home, eat, decompress, sleep, do it again.
I like a simple life; I do.
