The Price of Fun

January 15th, 2007 at 05:23 am

Yesterday we took the kids out someplace fun. I wanted to go bowling, but DH did not. The kids wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese, and DH and I did not. After discussing it, we went, and we all had fun! Then we stopped at Panera bread and got sandwiches for the adults, and McDonalds for happy meals for the kids. We spent about $45.00 yesterday, money which we didn't have to spend, money which at first I didn't want to spend, thinking I could have added it to my challenge instead. But then, I decided that I would not sacrifice my family's need for fun just to save a few bucks. I also was thinking that DH will be getting his bonus soon and we could afford to do a little something with the kids.

    You definately need to have some fun in your life. At the beginning of the year, I sat down with my kids and we made a list of Fun, Free and Cheap Things to Do. We came up with a lot of great ideas, so when we are bored and need something to do, we look at the list. One of the great ideas was hit our local high school swimming pool. They have what is called "Splash Bash" and it is only $2.00 per person on certain days. Swimming in the middle of winter is an awesome thing.

    I'm glad you decided to go have fun. I'm sure the kids will remember the fun they had at the "Mouse House" . Sometimes you just gotta have fun. We as adults get so caught up in the big picture that we forget we are actually living in the now.

    Yesterday is history
    Tomorrow a mystery
    Today is a gift
    That is why it is called the present.

    We have such a short time to give our kids good memories. Go for the fun stuff! It's only a problem when you're spending too much for it, or it isn't fun.
