This has to be a really quick post because this week is Spring Break! My girls spent the first two days of their vacation at their Nana & Papaw’s house where I’m sure they filled up on candy, stayed up late, and watched more tv than they have all year. They will be home the rest of the week, and I’m really looking forward to spending time with them and making fun memories.
One problem: we have zero cash…no running around money to help make this week special. So many of my girls’ friends are gone to the beach or Holiday World or on other trips this week. We’re planning a big road trip for this summer, but that means all our funds are going towards saving for that.
So, I’m looking for cheap fun that does not require a lot of travel. I know that not many local ladies read my blog (that’s intentional so that I don’t have to change the names in my stories to protect the innocent…) 🙂 But I would love to know what you do with your family for fun when money is tight. So far, I’m planning a trip to the library and a picnic at one of the local parks. I also think we need to have a Wii day where we dance/bowl/ice skate until our batteries die. My worry, though, is that those things will only take up one day…and I have 4 days to fill. (The 5th day of spring break will be spent doing laundry and housework since I will be too busy having fun to do it earlier in the week, and they will need clothes to wear to school come Monday…)
All ideas, hints, anecdotes, downloads, and personal checks are welcome! (I just threw that last one in for good measure in case all your ideas require money and you want to donate to the cause…) 🙂
Now, I’m off to have some fun! Happy Spring, y’all!
