I have a vacation a comin'.

I'm not going anywhere. It's more of stay-cation, I suppose, but Maren will be home from the babysitter's, Brynna will be out of school and not yet in camp and The Husband and I will be devoid of our normal work responsibilities. For a whole week.

We're going to play around and do some local stuff. Spend some time at the library and other exciting venues. Brynna wants to go to the water park, but I have this problem of not owning a bathing suit and having mixed emotions of whether or not I even want to remedy that.

Mostly, we're just going to be a family and be together. And try not to kill each other. In about a week and a half, you'll probably be subjected to a post about how sick I am of my family, but for now...

I can't wait.

I can't concentrate on anything. All I want to do is be outta here, playing with the kids, sleeping late, wearing pajamas until noon, reading, crocheting, crafting and a million other things that I probably won't actually have time to do.

Right now, I am like a kid on the last day of school. Which would be fine except it's only Wednesday. I have two more days of sitting here, bouncing up and down, trying to maintain some semblance of sanity.

So, to amuse me with non-workiness things... Let me know what you like to do with your staycations. Bonus points for kid-friendly ideas. Go!

It sounds heavenly to me! Mine are older now, but we do the same kinds of stuff. The library, the farmer's market, local hiking trails, lots of movies, grilling and sleeping in. Most of the time we like to be together, but I know what you mean about being sick of family sometimes!
I hope you have a grand time my sister! You deserve it.

So sorry. She doesn't even get up on school days until 6:15. I can't imagine what got into her!
