Friday Five - The Big To-Do

From RevGalBlogPals

Greetings from the land of the Big To-Do!

It seems like every year I enter into the summer with a growing list of HUGE projects/events/trips that seem to have a permanent place on the 'to do' list.
This year I have a huge move pending so that takes up an entire list all on its own, but it doesn't take a big event like that for me to make plans bigger than my summer can hold!
How about you?

Is this the third summer in a row you have made a pledge involving your garage and actually getting a car into it?
Did you once again miss the registration deadline for the continuing education event of your dreams ?
Are you starting to think you couldn't even find the tents, let alone get it together to pull off a camping trip?

Here is your chance to get it out into the open and OWN your Big To-Do! Who knows? Maybe making the list will help you move the Big To-Do to the Big Ta-Da!

1) What home fix-it project is on your Big To-Do?
We've actually started: A new roof on our house is the first of several biggies that have been put off way too long. That project is actually almost done. Next up is the repointing and repair of 2 chimneys. Our house is about a year shy of a century so there's always something that needs fixing. We also have some driveway repair on tap. INSIDE projects too -- all 5 bedrooms (did I mention this is a LARGE old house?) need to be redone -- new ceilings, new wallpaper, etc. We've actually got plans to get 2 of the rooms done.

2) What event (fun or work) is on your Big To-Do?

No big events on the horizon that I'm aware of at the moment.

3) What trip is on your Big To-Do?

GREECE!! We're taking a tour of Greece this summer.

4) What do you wish was on someone ELSE's (partner, family member, celebrity, etc...) Big To-Do?

I'd love it if one of sons was getting married. I'd settle for an engagement, though!

5) Getting inspired? What may end this summer having moved from the Big To-Do to the Big Ta-da?

I know that a lot of the home improvement projects will be accomplished.
