Not really. I just like all those signs that say that… I think it’s cute, in a rustic, country sort of way. But we are going on vacation! Where are we going? Hee, hee…
We’re going to San Diego! I hear they have lovely weather, a World Famous Zoo, Shamu, and a lot of up-and-coming restaurants. There is so much to do and see… I hope we can fit it all into a weekend. Maybe we’ll find a good place for breakfast, then do some wandering – what? Well, yes, we do live in San Diego. I mean, technically, we live in the city of Poway, but I see your point.
No, we are not having a “staycation”. I hate that term. It’s dumb. It’s the media’s way of saying people don’t have enough money to leave their homes and go somewhere else. Those people obviously haven’t heard of things called vacation savings accounts. I guess it’s also possible those people just didn’t want to spend $400 on a plane ticket that use to cost $250.
In any case, we’re just going to play at home. After countless weekends of digging, planting, watering, installing, and spending all our time on the house, we are taking a weekend to play. No errands, no to-do lists, and no cooking (this was T’s suggestion, not mine). T did allot 1 hour (no more!) to organize our tool shed to see if we can more efficiently use the space, but other than that, we’re just going to explore the city we live and work in. We’re going to go find restaurants we’ve never been to, maybe some we’ve never even heard of before. We’re going to use the Zoo and Wild Animal Park membership that basically acts as my charitable contribution for the year. We’re going to sleep in and not worry about what time it is. It’s going to be fun. And we won’t have to pay for a hotel, rent a car, or worry about the dogs.
