So this week, my sons are on Spring Break. Since The Husband and I do not want to go into debt, we are forgoing any type of vacation this year. Instead, we are opting for a budget-friendly staycation (where we sit at home and flip through travel magazines fantasizing about dream destinations).
Today, instead of swimming in the Aegean Sea, I took the boys to paint ceramics—which they love to do. Tall painted a gecko, and Short chose a penguin. I noticed several other families in the art studio engaged in painting—staycations must be the new trend.
Next, we returned home and made brownies—delicious! My homemade brownies are equal to, if not far superior to, any vacation food I have ever encountered.
After that, I washed a sinkful of dishes and did about 12 loads of laundry. Club Med, to my knowledge, does not make guests do their own dishes and laundry.
I plan to ask for a full refund from the Staycation Committee.
