For two years I've looked at those lovely vacation hours on my pay slip and thought to myself, "Someday I'm just going to take a vacation day to stay at home."
Then my love for people and travel would overtake and I would think, "Now why would I take a day just to sit at home." So I always ended up using my vacation time for other purposes.
But this month, with a research paper looming over my head, a household that's being washed in Dreft:), and a body that can't quite seem to keep up with the pace these days, I decided to take two whole vacation days with no other purpose than to be at my house.
Starting tonight, for the next 4 days, I'm on stay-cation. And honestly, if I were on my way to the tropics, it's unlikely that I'd be much more excited:)
