…the wife will play!
This past weekend, my coach went out of town for a recruiting trip. If you are anything like me…you get BORED easily. I knew he was going out of town a few days ahead so I made plans for a jam packed weekend.
While my coach was out, I went to a ‘canning’ class (led by one of my favorite people, Leslie!). Canning is very common in the Appalachia region, elsewhere too I suppose. Growing up, I watched my grandma can vegetables, my husband’s grandma cans the best apple butter I have ever tasted, and my mother-in-law just started canning. Needless-to-say, I was stoked about this class! Who knew it is much easier than I originally thought to turn cucumbers to pickles?! Not me.
As if canning class wasn’t enough for one day, I got lured in by the awesome deals going on in Walmart and Marshalls. I think I was in both stores for a total of four HOURS. Every time I go in each there is something new to look at. Retail therapy does good for the soul.
On Sunday, I decided that we were going to get back on the healthy eating wagon. Groceries were bought. Meals were prepped. Fail to plan, plan to fail. I also got to workout with my mom, not once – but twice! We love running and Zumba.
As you can tell, I like to fill my time up! If you are trying to find things to do in your town while your coach is away recruiting or traveling for a game, I encourage you to check out your local tourism office or Chamber of Commerce for events near you. I found the community events around me in the news-paper.
What do you do when your coach is out of town?
