It's not my weekend to have the kids and I have plans. He is going to be gone all weekend with the boys but my daughter can't go as she has to work.
Do I cancel my plans and stay home? Do I find a friend or relative that she can stay with? Or can I leave her home alone? It would really only be saturday afternoon and sunday morning.
She is a good kid that doesn't smoke, drink or do drugs.

Absolutely! My Parents used to leave me home alone for a weekend when I was 13. They had a summer home 2 1/2 hours away. They would leave on Friday afternoon & come home Monday afternoon EVERY weekend! They would leave me $20 just in case I needed it. :P I have 2 sisters but they had their own apartments a few miles away but never came to the house. I even had to take care of the dog. I think it was good for me though. It taught me responsibility. I had to set my alarm clock, get dressed, eat breakfast & go to school. Come home do my Homework, make dinner for myself & get to bed. That was back when kids came second.
