Vacation Without Vacating

I thought as usual I’d have today
and half tomorrow quiet here, alone,
and then I’d juggle bouts of toddler play
and visits with my sibs and Mom (no phone
but in-real-life). And then I heard them say
the young will camp; the elders will postpone.
So now I have 5 days, unplanned and free,
to recreate without contorting me.

(Ottava Rima)
