Friday Five Big To Do

Kathyrnz posted this excellent FF:
"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?
OMG Buying a new home is the BTD, so big that we have ignored all the fix-it's in our shoe-box that we will keep as a week place. We need SPACE! At least I do. Living in 500 sq ft. with two people may have been ok when I was in my 20's and both of us had a (separate) beach house, but not now. So every weekend we schlep to Long Island and look. 

2) What event (fun or work) is on your Big To-Do?
Registering for the New Fest, the gay and lesbian film festival. I became a member, now I have to choose my tickets before they are all gone! It's at the SVA Theater right around the corner and usually films you just can't see at a movie theater.
3) What trip is on your Big To-Do?
Buying tickets for a trip on a barge down some river in France, that is if we can afford it after the big purchase.
4) What do you wish was on someone ELSE's (partner, family member, celebrity, etc...) Big To-Do?
For BL, getting with the program on buying the big purchase.

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

Hope that Big Purchase goes ahead without a hitch, and that you get to enjoy some of those films...

Good luck with the Big Purchase! It looks like this is a good time to do it. And I sure hope that barge trip in France works out -- then I can live it vicariously through you.

Well, I certainly am on board with the Big Purchase! Sounds like you have a lot of great things going on. Thanks for playing.

Your to do's appear singularly focused! Good luck on all matters related to the BP. Hope there's some green left for the barge trip--that sounds quite the antidote to everything else.
