Aloha Friday #89

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?

    :(

  4. Sarah says:

    Cleaning out my office/workroom so that we can turn it into a bedroom for my twins. Partly because it’s a mess, partly because I’ll be sad to move them out of our room and partly because I’ll be sad not to have the office anymore.

  5. Michelle says:

    I have to pick only one? Well, I’ve been putting off making dentist appts for the kids.

  6. Golden Girl says:

    I have been putting off a pedicure. I am getting one tomorrow and I am so EXCITED! I rarely do anything for myself, I feel too guilty if I do. This is my first time participating in Aloha Friday. I look forward to meeting some new bloggers. Take care.

    I have a very special and dear to my heart letter to respond to and I’m having trouble putting my thoughts and feelings into words. Thus I’ve delayed my response.

  8. Kelly@ Parenting Princesses says:

    I think the easier question would be what haven’t I been putting off.

    I need to buy furniture and decorations. I need to set up a professional website, fix my new blog, write articles, read the 1000+ unread posts in my google read and clean my house.

  9. SmallTownLouisianaGirl says:

    Getting a bulb fixed on my truck so I can get it inspected.

  12. Desert Songbird says:

    Decluttering my house and helping my kids clean out their dressers of too-small clothing. Great summer tasks to do when hibernating from the heat.

  13. Melissa says:

    I have so much stuff accumulated over the past few years in my basement and I really need to get it together and have a yard sale, so I can unclutter. But there’s so much to go through, I just don’t want to lol

    Taking outgrown clothes and donating them, I just let them pile up and then bag them. And, then they go to the basement. Thus a very cluttered basement.

    I feel like I’ve been putting off a lot – my to-do list seems so long – LOL! But probably the biggest thing is I had a wisdom tooth come through during my last pregnancy that needs to come out. My dentist wouldn’t do it while I was pregnant – my baby is now 5 months old but I havent gone back to get it taken out yet. Maybe I will now move it up higher on my to-do list : )
