What to do with a week of vacation

Normally Hubs has two weeks off during either July or August form work. They are paid days off (YAY) and back to back. During this time - called summer shut down - the plant does all the maintenance and deep cleaning for the year.

I love Summer shut down, becuase two weeks - to me - is just the right length, we use one week to go on vacation and the other week to lounge around the house and maybe do a few do-it-yourself projects around the house.

This summer though, there is just too much work that needs to be done at the plant and since production is so far behind the bug guys on top decided that the summer shiut down will only be one week. :o(

We don't have very many at home things we need to do, so we are struggling to figure out what we can do during our week off. Keep in mind that Smokey is horribly car sick so she cannot accompany us and if we kennel her, that takes up all of our vacation money and then there is no point on going on vacation!

so, I have been working on a list ;

  • We can take the boys into the city and spend some time at the water park, maybe find some cheap hotels and stay the night.
  • We can ask the vet for a prescription to knock Smokey out and take her camping with us, or knock her out and drive her out to my dads while we go camping.
  • We can just stay home (boo)
and..thats it, thats all I can come up with.

Summer shut down is the first week of August, so time is running out. What would YOU do?
