Our 'Stay-cation' Week

Hubster has been on vacation this week from work. He's been a UPS man for so long now he gets a ridiculous amount of vacation (6 weeks, or something like that....)

So, although we had no specific plans for this week, he took the week off. It's been nice. I get so BORED during the week, now that my business is akin to a goldfish floating belly up in its bowl. (So sad, isn't it??) However, I have some semi-promising irons in the fire, so we'll see what happens....

Anyway, we've had a fun week together.
Lots of naps (yes, feel free to read between the lines), and we went to the see "The Wrestler" (which I loved, but then KBL told me that Mickey Rourke and Evan Rachel Wood are now an item.... which has an off-the-charts "Ick Factor"to it....). We've also done some household projects; and of course we've taken the dogs to an awesome park near our house that has (literally) 7 miles of walking trails (and equestrian paths.)

It's been a really nice week.
I think tomorrow we may go have lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in the area, Aqua Terra Bistro. (Tres, tres yummy....)
A mid-Winter vacation at home with one's spouse is quite fun. Highly recommended, and costs a whole lot less than jetting off to Aspen for a week of skiing. :)

Sounds like bliss, and practical, too. Win-win situation!

That sounds like it has been a very productive time. You probably needed some recharging of the old batteries.

And the quality time you spent with your hubster sounds like it was badly needed.

Vacations at home are the most relaxing for me.

We are a bit brainwashed by the media that we need to jet off to new places to have a true vacation. Many times these trips can be more stressful than a hard day at work.

Relax, enjoy and explore your surroundings.

I LOVE vacations at home. My Christmas break was divine, I just stayed in and painted and read and relaxed. Ahhhh.
