What's another word for "staycation"?

Today's post is not so much advice (or ideas, or inspiration) but rather, a question. Like it says in the title...

What's another word for "staycation"?

Call me cranky (Hi, Cranky!) but this word raises my linguistic hackles.  It was clever the first time I heard it, but it's now been beaten to death and deserves to be put on the same shelf as "leverage" "frienemy" and any number of formerly ingenious buzzwords.

Still, the fact remains that I am planning an event that is fitting of a "staycation", yet I'm determined not to call it that.  Help me out...what do you think?

No ideas? Feel free to use this space to vent the words/phrases you're tired of hearing.

Jen, let me think about this! I'm sure we will come up with something better! Hmmm...
