Perimeters layers are not smooth

This is my first MK3S+   Assembled it and ran it for about a week with no issues and was very happy with the prints.

I took a vacation and didn't use the printer for about a week.  I used it today and noticed that my perimeter layers are "wiggly" and the printer and not moving a smooth motion.  Anyone have some tips on were to start with this?

Let's start with the simplest possibility:

Clean and lightly lubricate your smooth rods - you weren't away long but dust and spiderwebs can interfere with smooth running.

Come back if this isn't enough.

+1 for lubrication. Most common printing issues have very simple fixes.
