Exclamation Loss of Brake Boost on 1st startup!

Hi all,
I have a 2001 PT Limited, AT, w/only 82k. Been a great car, owned it with 24k and I have always kept up with maintenance, including brakes. Recently the first time driven the pedal is hard as if no boost but by the next corner boost is back and it stays perfect for the remainder of driving time. Vacuum hoses look fine, check valve? No increase in rpm to indicate leak, any suggestions? It just started doing this about a week ago. My wife drive this mostly which really bothers me the most!
I'm hoping someone can think of something I've over looked.
TIA, Ken

I would suggest checking the rubber plug on the vacuum line next to the brake booster. Its common to start leaking.
