Summer vacation is coming and with it, Big Plans.

Our Big Plan: Get through the move. Everything else is gravy.

I'm looking forward to lazy days at the park, propped with a book at the local community pool. My kids have hit the golden age of being allowed to swim without me, so I plan reading until my eyes fall out, while the yet to be hired real estate agent shows my house.

I'm looking forward to taking day trips around the area. See Mt. St. Helens. Spend the day with my family. Go to the beach.

I'm looking forward to seeing a movie in the park. Eating Ranier cherries. Seeing friends.

(I'm such a homebody.)

It all sounds really, really lovely.

And, um, going to BlogHer with the good friends soon to be left behind? :) Don't feel guilty.

(Seriously. I will play with you until you move, no matter what you decide about BlogHer. But go. Heh)

I think with gas prices as they are, lots of us will be having "staycations!" Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Ranier cherries! Mmmmmm. But the window of opportunity for them is so darn short. Gotta hop on 'em before they're gone.

I am a homebody too. These sound like wonderful plans to me.

I giggled hugely over the title of this post, as the term "staycation" is used in one of my favourite episodes of a Canadian sitcom...too cute!

Vacations at home are the only truly restful ones.
