Aloha Friday #100

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:

If you could do or have one thing to make your life easier, what would it be?

For me, I think I’d have someone come in and clean my home once a week. With my girls around, it probably wouldn’t last for very long but it sure would be nice.

    I totally agree with the cleaning help. I had someone once, but when I quit work, we decided I could do it. With 3 boys! Not likely!

    I’d say a laptop? I’m really not sure. Oh wait. I know. If my husband really shared in being involved and helping with the daily stuff that happens in our home , especially on the days when he is off or I’m just drowning in frustration. Like say, changing a diaper? putting the dishes in the dishwasher, or just doing the bedtime routine. Not all the time, but once a week aor so would be great.

    I would have a gigantic wad of money tucked away – enough to comfortably live on. That way, even though my husband would prefer to work, we would already have enough tucked away for the kids’ college funds, and I could hire a housekeeper to help me out, guilt free! ;)

    MommyAmy says:

    I’d have to agree with you and say a housekeeper. We talked about getting one before my twins were born but then opted for a yard maintenence service instead (with the understanding that Hubs would help out more with housework). I like the yard service, but at this stage I think I’d like BOTH! lol

    Hmmm living on the island of Oahu…I think I wish for a road, but not just any road. It has to be one that connects all the islands together. That way i would be able to get in my car and simply drive to the MauiTweetup this afternoon at 3p. I miss Maui and the great folks there!
