I did find 'Homecation': With the high cost of travel, people are opting to stay at home. In many cases, they are transforming their homes into a resort, which entertains their local family and friends in the comfort and security of their "personal resort".
Last year around this time, I posted about our Staycation. It was a great time to vacation in our own beautiful city, which has so many terrific things to offer. We had an absolute blast. But this doesn't define our upcoming time away from work either.
Next Friday afternoon begins for Mrs. LIAYF and I once again, a couple of weeks away from work in our fair city. However, there is one big difference this year compared to last. These two weeks can't be described as a staycation, though we will attempt to infuse a few fun activities into the time.
Rather, because of a tight budget and our past experiences as Weekend Warriors, we are using the time to take on certain aspects of our basement remodel ourselves.

It's not a homecation either. Resort like, this will not be.
It's more of a Housecation. A vacation to work on your house. That word doesn't exist in the Urban Dictionary but perhaps it should. We can't be the only people using their valuable vacation time to do major house improvements. Therefore, I signed up to be an editor for Urban Dictionary and submitted housecation as an entry. I'll let you know when and if it gets added.
How about you, readers? What words have you made up that should be included in a reference guide such as the Urban Dictionary?
P.S. That was quick. I have already received word that housecation has been approved and is now published on Urban Dictionary.
