Stay-cation, all I ever wanted…
Today marks the start of my summer vacation. Except it’s really not. Yes, I am taking this week off from work, but no, I’m not really going anywhere. First off, Mr. IT’s working this week. Since we went away during both winter and spring breaks this year, we decided to take off alternating weeks to be with the kids and give my mom a break from child-sitting duties. Mr. IT’s week off was last week, during which he hit the pool and the mall with the kids. Me, I’m planning on a trip with the kids and some friends to the Dutchess County Fair and some pool time. We did go to my mom’s cottage this weekend and visited the Polish Town Fair, so really, what more excitement can you expect after that?
I hate the word “staycation” but that’s exactly what I am doing. Certainly the economy was a factor, but truth be told, I’m worn out and need a break. Anyone who has traveled with kids can tell you there is little relaxing about the experience. I dreaded the thought of packing, unpacking, long car trips, and meals on the road. Hanging out in the house is just fine by me.
It’s also IT Boy’s week off. He’s got 2 sessions today, and one tomorrow, but then he is done. He’s been pretty feisty in his sessions lately. Not sure if it was having Daddy home (not Daddy’s fault, mind you) but he was acting up with all his therapists. Maybe taking some time off and recharging the batteries is what he needs too.
