This weekend is one of those weekends where there are so many things to do in town and not enough time to do it all, that I’ve had to be very selective with what the kids and I can actually attend. At first, it started out with two events: a mom’s group get together where we have all decided that we will use the excuse of Mother’s Day to get together and exchange cookies; and a birthday party.
After talking it over with the kids this morning, we have decided to also go a book sale that will be raising money for a local arts organization (my daughter is hoping there will be comic books there for sale), and taking some old electronics to the local computer store for recycling (and the proceeds will be going to the local foodbank).
Childhood friends of mine are also in town, so they will be stopping by this weekend too (one of whom I haven’t seen since high school!). We’re also hoping to go to the park at some point since the weather is beautiful, and perhaps the library.
The best thing about this weekend is that, besides the gas, ingredients to make the cookies and whatever we might buy at the book sale, it’s relatively inexpensive. Who says fun needs to be expensive? It’ll be filled with tons of fun and social time for the kids and I, and we’ll be helping our local community.
What are your plans for the weekend?
