Weekend Plotting

Do you ever feel like it’s impossible to get people together? Do you ever feel like you’re the only person who has left a Friday open, only to find that everyone else is out of town and you’re left looking from the outside in? Or at a dinner party scheduled several years ago? I have a friend – whom I love – but I can never see because she is busy every weekend now until June. And it’s January.

Where did the spontaneity go? I am always torn between leaving room for impromptu fun, or booking up my weekends until forever, just because that seems to be the only way to make sure I can play with my friends.

What do you do? Are you a game time decision maker or by-the-book planner? I’m curious about your weekends!

If you need me this weekend, I’ll be at a film screening and having dinner with friends. A plan we made three weeks ago. Yeah. I know.

    Ugh. So agreed. I purposefully leave weekends wide open when I can just to see what happens (I also am hopelessly bad at planning ahead…I like to think it’s because I live in the moment). Yet, last Friday night Alvin and I sat home and consumed large amounts of Asian takeout all by ourselves (which ok, was…AWESOME). But really…I’m getting sick of having to plan girls nights and such months ahead of time. Let’s be free and throw our weekend calendars away!!!!!

      Asian takeout with your one true love sounds like a pretty bomb evening, BUT… I totally agree! Let’s ditch the calendars and have fun on the fly!

      Miss you, my friend!

    I used to be such a planner but ever since our honeymoon where we drove across the country and didn’t force plans my mind has totally changed. The spontaneous pizza and wine nights are the ones i treasure. I wish people would let their life breathe and allow the wonder of spontenaity

      Ashley – I so agree with you. And that sounds like such a sweet honeymoon! Have you ever seen “The Long, Long Trailer” with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz? They’re newlyweds who drive across the country in their new trailer. Of course, things go horribly awry in the name of comedy, but there are some adorable scenes where they just drive and embrace the day together. It’s so cute!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

      XO – Hilary
