Friday Night Planning

I'm a planner. I like to know what's in store for today and the days to come. By looking at life a few days at a time, I can make sure we get to the things we are supposed to, we eat healthy and the kids get enough rest. When I plan, life runs smoothly.

However, we shook it up a little last night. Someone invited us over for dessert and drinks. Typically, we never go out Friday night. The kids are tired and we have a quiet night at home  with a fairly early bed time. However, I threw caution to the wind and agreed to go.

We stayed way too late and enjoyed ourselves a little too much. But what fun we all had. We had a late and slow start to today. Eamon is napping. Everyone is happy. I'm so pleased we agreed to go!

So now I have a goal. Once our basement is sorted out (more on that next week), I'm going decide some Friday morning to invite people over that night for dessert and drinks.

I suspect the planner in me is going to want to pick in advance which Friday I try to have my impromptu get together, but old habits die hard. 


  1. Sometimes it is fun to step out of our comfort zone...when do you want us over?

  2. Whoaaa...don't get too crazy now!

  3. My Rare One tries to get me to be spontaneous sometimes. I prefer planned spontaneity, like you. But every once in awhile I surprise her by suggesting some wild and crazy thing on the spur of the moment, like going to a movie.
