look up any word, like plopping:
 
1.
A vacation that is spent at one's home enjoying all that home and one's home environs have to offer.
Even though I live and work in New York, I don't always get to enjoy all it has to offer, what with my work commitments, but I sure did have an awesome time here during my spring staycation.

2.
A vacation spent close to home.
With the price of gas soaring, a staycation is what most Americans will experience during the summer of 2008.

3.
Staying at home during your vacation instead of traveling to a pleasure destination. This can be caused by high gas prices, or just a shortage of money.
We wanted to take the kids to Niagara Falls, but with gas over $4 a gallon, we instead opted for a staycation.

A vacation you take at home.

5.
1. The equivalent of being unemployed for a week.
2. A chance to sit around and look at all the reasons you wanted to get away for a week in the first place.
Man, since I took that staycation, I really feel for all the guys who lost their jobs.

All I did on my staycation was chores

6.
A reprieve from daily activities of work and chores; taking personal time for more important pieces of life... such as anal sex, the rusty trombone, and rewarding your significant other for getting you flowers with ridiculous sexual favors.
Thanks for sending those flowers to work to show people I am loved, lets take a staycation so you can tear my ass apart.

This Friday was my last day of work before my staycation, so I stopped by Walgreen's to buy a 12 pack of personal lubricant.
