  • Go to a nature reserve, amusement park, petting zoo or zoo with your kids or grandkids

  • Take advantage of your local library and go with your kids to the library to check out good books
  • Invite friends over for grilled chicken, cheeseburgers, hotdogs or ribs, or cold sandwiches, chips, pickles, olives, fresh veggies and watermelon after church on Sundays
  • Go to the movie matinee specials with your husband/wife for an inexpensive, fun date

  • Record fun videos of you, family, and friends; have a funny “movie” night watching them
  • Catch up on all your scrapbooking or photo albums
  • Buy some new clothes – a new suit; a colorful, fun sundress; some flip flops; some Hawaiian shirts or shorts; some comfy pj’s; sharp, well-made clothes for church or business –  you deserve it and it will make you feel like a new person who you and others take seriously.
