Sometimes when you feel there is nothing fun to do you should think outside the box. If you are trying to find a fun activity you may want to start by thinking of transportation. You can consider taking a ride out in the country. Then you can go for a walk and maybe a picnic. if you would like you can rent a car for the trip. It will be like a sightseeing tour on the way. Then tell the driver to be back in a few hours. The extra spent might seem like a little to much money. If you are not making a car payment or paying insurance or for gas you might find it is actually reasonable.
If you want to look at the kind of rides you can use a taxi for you might be surprised and how cost effective it can actually be. You can get a ride to the doctors office. You can get a ride to a court case. You can get a ride to dinner or lunch or even just cocktails. The airport is always a popular ride so you save money on parking and you get dropped off right up front. You can get a ride home at any time so no waiting for a ride and no walking to find your parked car on your return. Just wave down the nearest taxi service and you are good to go.
Now the most important thing is to never think that not having a ride is a good reason to not go out and have some fun. You can now plan your vacation your staycations and any day trip you ever wanted. Just find a good taxi service and keep the number stored in your phone for free quotes. Also make sure you check with your local listings because a van or party bus is not that expensive and if it is not in use you can usually talk the dispatch to give you a better rate just to keep their vehicles rented out as often as possible.
Have a nice time and remember to keep your kids active and no more excuses.
Every now and then you will want to upgrade your living conditions. this can be the most fun and rewarding experience if you plan ahead and make it a smooth move. Just relocating can be fun but moving into a new house our high rise condominium is also a lot of fun. Once you find your new location you can begin to plan out your move. You will want to get boxes and show your kids what will be easy to move and what are the large or heavier pieces they will need help with. get the kids to pack their own boxes if possible and plan for the large pieces, like moving your piano. The normal furniture like dining room table and couches are one thing. But moving a piano takes precision and extra care so it is not damaged and is not out of tune when you get into your new house. if you work with a specialist you will know your piano will be safe and sound. You can tell the difference usually just by talking to the piano movers about the move. they should ask you about multi levels and steps even how wide your openings are.
If you have a chance call ahead of time and have the professional movers come out and give you a quote. they can tell you abou insurance and special time allotments they will need without interruptions from normal thug movers who seem to always be in the way. You can ask them how long it will take. Maybe if they will need any special state of the art moving tools to make the move safer. You can even ask them how many team members will be there and for references of course.
In the big picture this all might seem like trivial details to take into consideration. But some people think of their pianos as family heirlooms and really want to keep them working perfectly and have zero flaws once the move is completed. For this you will for sure need a piano moving specialist who loves your piano as much as you do. A company that is also musicians so they can tune your piano makes sure it is set up perfectly once the move is completed.
Every now and then you may feel like you are stuck in a rut and there is no way out. You ever want to do something with your kids but have no transportation? If you have ever used the excuse of not having a big enough car we have the solution for you.

Now the way i got into this calling taxis for a ride is from watching TMZ. If you notice all the hot celebrities get pick up by nice cars. I have seen Escalades and Range Rovers picking them up at the airport and in front of the nice clubs. The Kardashians are always getting a ride anywhere they go. So i thought i can maybe do that. i won’t have a car payment and i found a cheap taxi service that has new cars. I now just call Taxi Riverside Ca and they are there to pick me up. I have an account and i just charge it ahead of time and let them know my schedule. Most the time it is no problem and they just always keep a dope taxi in my area.
Good luck from the Mom with a ride!
I just wanted to stop by and ad in a few tricks i have found to keep kids inspired and help parents teach along the way. You can plan day trips with your kids to tire them out and keep them interested. one of my favorites is to go to a museum or haunted house with your kids and ask them to pick out their favorite part for you. You can play it up as boring or super fun and exciting depending on your child’s level of enthusiasm.
I try to find an activity that sounds fun to kids. Then i make a deal with em that they must right a small page if the best and the worst times of the day. Here are a few activities i have tried already.
- The beach
- Arts and Crafts
- Dog Park
- Costume Design
And don’t forget to make them write a list of their skills before and after the activities. You can have them write down all the things they do the best. And write a separate list of all the things they feel they are not good at. This an awesome exercise and can be a very enlightening and great learning experience.
Now the most important part of thi plan is to make the activities the kids choice. What i mean is give them several ideas and ask them for their input. Then make sure the activity you all decide on fitsin your parameters and works for your master plan of creating an original and educational activity. Good luck to all the parents out there and you will need it. take it from an old aunt who watched her nieces and nephews ans was never lucky enough to have kids of my own. And btw if non of this advice or ideas help, just get a cat. Cats are awesome and take little care and if you get a few one will always spend some time with you.
