Aloha Friday - What Projects Will You Be Doing?


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.


In our neck of the woods, school starts on Tuesday so my 5-year-old daughter will be heading off to kindergarten for full days, 5 days a week.

This will be the first time since she was born, I will have structured "me" time all week long.  Sure she has gone to the odd preschool here and there but nothing for more than a few hours at a time, a couple of days a week.

And I am sooooooo looking forward to it!!!!  I have so many things I want to get done around the house.  Things like the many odd painting jobs to complete in our old home, there is gardening to do, and it's time to clean out all the closets plus reorganize the front entry room.  This is just the tip of the iceberg of projects I will have on the go this Fall.

So how about you?  What do you look forward to doing once your children are back in school or like me, going to kindergarten and leaving you at home all day for the first time?


*Oh and I didn't link up with Kailani today since I won't be able to visit or comment back but I still wanted to thank you for dropping by, Have a great weekend everyone!*

You would think if the entity in your house is willing to brush your hair then they wouldn't mind helping out spreading a bit of paint as well. Just saying.

The wife preschool teaches so she has ro start back with the little one.

Have fun with your time off.

Oh, I am looking forward to the start of school on Tuesday, too.

I have many, many projects on my list which I can't wait to do. BUT, I'm mostly looking forward to getting back on a schedule. The late nights and hours spent as a taxi driver are really starting to get old.

You are going to love the "me" time. Peace and quiet.

Have a great weekend.

Hi! It is so nice to visit you again - It's been a while since I've seen you're blog! My computer is down and I can't access GFC from work so I've been following on FB/Twitter - hoping people follow me back too. =D
