Mushy brakes after sitting a few days

Before the holidays in December, I noticed that my brakes ('91 SE-R)
were just a bit mushy, the pedal seemed to go further to the floor
than usual, but nothing serious. I return from vacation after the car
had sat for 10 days, and when I started it up the pedal went straight
to the floor and the brakes barely grabbed.
I thought I had a leak, but wasn't able to find anything. The car has
basically been a city driver the last few years, no highway time, no
heavy braking, etc. I haven't bled the system since I put new pads on
about 2-3 years ago, could it just be air in the lines, or something
One thing I did notice is that with the key out, the pedal was rock
hard, but once I put the key in and turned it, I had mush again.
