5 Things To Do On A StayCation Weekend
I love me some alone time. Some blogging time. Some quiet time. Some TV watching time. Naps, naps and more naps. I learned to enjoy my company by necessity when I became a single mom who’s kids had their weekends away with their dad a couple times a month. Now I crave my time on my own.
These days staying home isn’t a good option for my alone time. There are two major reasons for this: Chores and Grandson.
Seems like if I am home I am going to be working on laundry or dishwashing or renovations or something and stopping to relax just doesn’t happen. Secondly if my grandson knows I am home he is stalking me; pounding on my door, calling out in his little pathetic voice for NahNah…. and I can’t resist that.
Since I don’t especially like to drive faraway and hotels on the beach are very expensive I decided to stay in a nearby town where the nightly rate was only $99.00 a night with free breakfast.
I arrived Friday afternoon with a small coffee thermos and some snacks with the intent to not leave the hotel until Sunday after noon. I almost accomplished this—- but had to drive home because I discovered I had my daughters wallet. Apart from that I barely left my room. It was heaven. Here are 5 things I did
#1) Slept. Went to bed early. Slept in late. Took several naps. No toddler banging on my door. No cats making biscuits on my chest. No doggie whining to go out.
#2) Ordered room service. Actually only did this one time for dinner but also ordered dessert. The rest of the time I relied on piling up the free breakfast and taking it up to my room after filling up my thermos with coffee.
#3) Watched some movies on my laptop. Dragged my comforter and pillows off the bed over to the couch (yes, $99 for a suite dang it!) and watched some movies.
#4) Colored and did crossword puzzles. Yes I do have an adult coloring book and colored pencils. It is very relaxing.
#5) Wrote on my blog as much as I wanted. Did some research. Figured out how to send notifications finally. Wrote this post. Bought some photo editing software.
