You deserve a break today

August 2, 2011 - Kathleen Palumbo
There has of course always been the standard “get away from it all” vacation, followed by the popular and often used “staycation.” You know…the “I reeeeeally need a break and can’t get away right now, so I’ll take my time off and just stay at home relaxing kind of vacation.

Well, I’d like to add the has-been-done, but newly named, “daycation.” We’ve all done them – just one or two days in an away from home setting that lends a whole new freshness to your outlook.

My recent “daycation” found me at Presque Isle for a weekend getaway. A quite impressive feat I must say, that involved the combining of two families, the organization of the schedules of 11 individuals (unfortunate individual number 12 had to settle in at home), the coordination of four vehicles traveling from two cities, and the skin pigmentation of all involved (hey…two days at the beach can wreak havoc on some people…and you know who you are.

Nevertheless, we pulled it off. To my children, I’m glad you still want to “get away” with me, whether it is of the vacation, staycation, or daycation variety. To Mother Nature…a giant shout out for all your efforts. To Jaclyn – hope you’re 21st was all that you hoped for (Presque Isle Downs and Casino roulette tables beware), and to my friends…thanks for the memories.
