Just Go, It’ll Be Fun!

It’s 5:00 pm on the Friday before the holiday weekend.  I’m sitting at my desk; I just finished a report that I have to present to Executive Management next week. My brain is fried as I’ve scrambled to complete it on top of all the other responsibilities as
Room Mom,
Writer …

The list goes on...sound familiar? 

I don’t want to think about it. Right now all I want to do is enter a vegetative state while I lie on the couch and watch HGTV.

But there’s a pool party in the neighborhood and our children are now begging me to go…

Ughhhh, that is the last thing I want to do! 

My husband - being the smart guy that he is - says, “Honey I’ll take them, you stay home and relax.” What an awesome man!! 

After they left, the twinge of guilt set in and I said to myself: “just go, it’ll be fun.”  I really didn’t feel that way, but figured if I said that enough than maybe I’d convince myself.

I went to the party. It was like something out of a movie with dads in belly flop contests, and the neighborhood coach as DJ with hysterical commentary...the only thing missing was a Babe Ruth bar in the pool! (you’ll only get that joke if you saw CaddyShack:). 

I had a blast!

Does this ever happen to you, too? There’s a party or event and it’s much easier for us to stay home never leaving our comfort zone. Maybe there are friends that you’d love to meet up with, an event to attend or activity and it never happens because it’s just too much trouble.

Maybe you are one of those people who are always up for a party and make things happen...

But for the rest of us, let’s set aside some time to specifically make plans and put them on the calendar. Contact those friends you haven’t seen, scan the magazines or perform a Google search for whatever it is you want to do and then schedule it. Just Go, It’ll Be Fun!

Life is so much more interesting when we have things to look forward to. Speaking of that gotta run to go make some plans, who knows maybe I’ll see you soon!
