This year with the slowdown of the economy more people are staying home during their vacation. There are advantages to staying home besides saving money: no stressful traveling, no jet lag, no need to pack, and also a chance to discover what is in your backyard and to enjoy your home.

1. Take care of your household chores beforeyour staycation starts.
2.Do not schedule a home/garden project.
3. Rest, try to just "be."
4. Shut off the Blackberry, stay off the email.
5. Have a day without a plan, be spontaneous.
6. Don't set your alarm clock, sleep as long as you need.
7. Take day trips. If you need ideas, go to Roadside America.
8. Enjoy your town: restaurants, museums, parks, and shops.
9. Schedule a massage.
10. Have a potluck dinner with friends you never have time to see - celebrate, have fun.

Bon Voyage!

Dear Luci,
What a nice word - Staycation! I love it! Truth is, I haven't been to any places this year, not even towns nearby due to busy schedule. Funny that I never thought about Staycation at all! Sounds perfect! Well, I did a couple of those as Marie suggested yesterday, did another 1-2 more today.. and most of all, be spontaneous! But still having trouble neglecting the emails though, it's piled up like crazy just as we speak. =P

Brilliant job on the Talk Radio,I'm dying to watch the movie otherwise I'll join in the chat with you guys.
