Some college friends are coming to town this weekend. Two of them are staying with another friend. There’s four of us all together. We do these types of weekends every so often (for many years now). Usually – it’s kind of a casual hang out time.
What I’ve noticed, as of late (ie: the last few years) is the crew is insanely indecisive. So, it’s a lot of sitting around, trying to figure out what to do.
While I realize there is some beauty in a relaxed schedule and not having to be somewhere at a specific time – I really would prefer some structure to the weekend.
What I’d like to do is send the gang an email to see if we can come up with a general framework for the weekend.
What do you think? Would you feel like I was being too pushy/controlling if I was trying to schedule the weekend?

I think exactly how you do and I agree with trying to plan somewhat of a schedule, especially when you know you will be with an indecisive crowd. I hate those “well, what do you want to do now” moments. At least you can have a set agreement of activities with everyone so theres a general flow to the day.

Why don’t you just plan an activity or two for each day? Then, even if the rest of the day is just chillin’, it’ll be structured a bit by one meal or outing or whatevs.

Maybe you can plan a specific event for one (or two) of the evenings. Just for those that don’t want a super structured weekend – there is at least something specific going on for a portion of it. Does that make sense?

I would send out an email with an idea for an activity or 2 for each day, rather than sending an email asking for a schedule…I can only imagine the indecisive email chain that would ensue! 🙂 Just something like, “Hey guys, what do you think of going to xxxx on Friday? And yyyyy restaurant has a great Saturday brunch,” or whatever…just so it’s not totally open!
