A staycation is an awesome thing, and I would love and deserve to win one. But I admit, after reading the heartfelt first 2 entries, (Anthony & definitely Gwens) I believe they should win it hands down. My story is just a single mom of 2 daughters, high school and college students and trying to constantly make ends meet. Very tough times in this economy on a single income. Struggling, but getting by.

I definitely need a break. In December 2011 i suffered two seizures while driving on two different days. I totalled my car, the DMV suspended my license pending medical release. I was providing in home care for a client 68yrs old and we were evicted from my home of 11 years by the HOA in January 2012. I lost my car, my home and my job in the blink of an eye. I have a care companion animal and we are now taking the local busses everywhere seeking housing, employment and medical care. We are effectively homeless at this point, staying with friends for shelter at night and hygiene needs. We need a staycation with warm running water! Gail and Angel.
