Friday Five – The Big To-Do

Kathryn from Revgals writes:
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?
Well, considering that we are hosting Music Man’s graduation party in exactly 22 days, the project is spruce up, clean-up the house, the deck and the yard.

2) What event (fun or work) is on your Big To-Do?
Calling a second pastor to our staff is a momentous to-do on the work front. I have been soloing it with the help of a one-day-a-week visitation pastor and some preaching back-up since August. It’s time, Lord….it’s time!

3) What trip is on your Big To-Do?
Our every-summer trip Up North, which is actually coming a whole month early this year for several reasons. 4 weeks from today – YEAH!

4) What do you wish was on someone ELSE’s (partner, family member, celebrity, etc…) Big To-Do?
Oh…I think that would be Music Man and Game-boy getting the upstairs rooms they occupy cleaned-up and de-cluttered.

5) Getting inspired? What may end this summer having moved from the Big To-Do to the Big Ta-da?
The remodeling of both upstairs bathrooms really needs to be a Big Ta-da by the end of the summer, or someone’s gonna be in some deep doo doo here.

    “Deep doo-doo” literally? Nevermind, don’t answer that.It sounds like a busy and fun summer, thanks for playing.

    Good luck on the spruce up! You’ve got a little time until graduation, so that’s good!

    There’s nothing like date-specific things to inspire productivity! Hope all the do’s get done!

    I long to do our bathroom. Good luck with graduation plans…and…getting another full-time pastor to share in ministry, hope that comes soon, too!

    Good luck with #4. In my experience it doesn’t really happen till they are out in their own spaces, if then. And I do hope you get an associate before long!
