Before summer started, Mr. Roller Coaster and I were planning an adult only vacation. He took leave, and we made arrangements for his parents to watch the kids. After discussing our vacation options, we decided to be spontaneous (well, as spontaneous as a couple can be when they have to be spontaneous within a particular time frame). The plan was to pack light, head over to the nearest Space A terminal, and hop on the first flight to Europe. No kids! No hotel reservations! No plans! We were going to carpe the heck out of that diem!
It’s a lot tougher to carpe diem with an 11 week old puppy.
But Mr. Roller Coaster is still on leave, and as of yesterday, our kids are living it up at Camp Grandparents. So it seems our Vacation has turned into a Stay-cation.
Yes, we’re staying home. No Space A flights. No backpacking through Europe. Just home. But I’m learning that home is a completely different place when you don’t have to worry about entertaining children, cooking dinner, or booking babysitters. The possibilities are endless. My biggest question is:
What should we do?!
Have you ever had a stay-cation? What would you do if you had a weeklong stay-cation?
