Staycation

I'm on Staycation this week. You know, a vacation where you stay at home. And I'm wallowing in it.

But how can you be on a vacation/staycation when you are retired and don't work anyway?

Well, a vacation/staycation indicates a beginning and an end. My retirement goes on forever but my staycation lasts only until my daughter and grandsons come back from their vacation. Out of town. Way out. No surprises, no early re-entries.

 

'Mom' has joined some friends for a road trip to Vegas. The boys are spending the week with friends. Be still my heart!

I began to make a list of all the things I would do... a to-do list for cleaning up the place. Then I got a grip. Crusty, get real. You know yourself better than this. You aren't going to do all this stuff! I had to agree, but there are two things I WILL ACCOMPLISH.
 
I am going to clean the toilet. The cool part is that it will stay clean for longer than an hour. Cackle. The other thing I know for sure that I will do is to catch up on my naps. 'nough said.

I did, however, accept the responsibility of taking care of Darius' pet rocks. Rocky and all of his offspring.
 
I think its going to be pretty easy.

Speaking of Rocky, Darius gave him a bath the other afternoon. That kind of deflated my plans to take Rocky and the kids and return them to the wild. Darius would notice their absence.

I'd gladly take care of a few rocks...hahaha! I get the staycation. K and I were set to go out for a while. But when we heard the rest of the family were going to the beach and taking bikes, we figured at least two, maybe three hours of having the house to ourselves! We'll go somewhere later when they get back home.

Enjoy your time to yourself!!

Enjoy..enjoy...enjoy.....!!! Rest and read or whatever floats your boat. You deserve some quiet time. Oh yeah....do some art work for your blogging friends if you are in the mood. My blog is sort of broken. I can see it... but can't post on it. Don't know why yet...

A Staycation... I love it! I had the boys here for one night, and you can tells their are boys in the house by the toilet.

I saw a sign once, and should have bought it to hang when the boys are here.

"MY AIM IS TO KEEP THIS BATHROOM CLEAN, MAKE SURE YOUR AIM IS RIGHT!"

Enjoy your week Crusty!!

BTW Love yellow roses!
That momma rock is really fertile

Oh, a new word for me - staycation - I like it! Was that a rose growing in your toilet??? :)) Don't waste your staycation cleaning! That will still be there when the staycation is over and I'm sure you can manage to find more exciting things to do while you have the place all to yourself. As it says on my fridge - A mind is a terrible thing to waste on housework! Not a truer word has been writ.
