Sometimes a vacation is more work than fun when you have to do a bunch of planning. It is a lot of work for me because I have so many animals to make arrangements for. The thought of a "staycation" really sounded good. Especially when I realized I had a bunch of time to use or lose before the end of the year.
I have a goal to downsize, organize, simplify my life by 2012 so staying home for a week sounded like a good plan. I probably would have been much further along in my plans had I not gotten sick on the very first day of my staycation. What luck!
