I'm looking forward to the end of the week because we will be one week closer to summer! I'm looking forward to getting some serious home improvement projects finished up this summer. The favorite thing about my outside area is that it has a ton of potential. (A ton of work pending, but a ton of potential!)

I am not particularly thrilled with being away from my kids for over half the summer, but DH really, really wanted to do this.

Yeah, I can see that. We are only going for a week. Last time was 9 days.

1. What are you looking forward to this week? Sports playoffs.

2. What are you looking forward to this summer?

Spending time with my oldest, most likely traveling with him most of the June weekends.

3. What's your favorite thing about your yard/deck/outside area? Do you have a favorite tree.plant/flower?

The whole space.  I love the dogwoods, the grapevines and my annuals.

"Yeah, I can see that. We are only going for a week. Last time was 9 days." --------- Hiring a live-in nanny for that amount of time must be really pricy though.

That's a bummer, yikes..  I'm so thankful (and lucky) that I could rely on my family's support instead.

It really is.....for the people who have to do that. My family is great too with things like that and I don't have to worry about leaving my kids for something like this nor have to pay a fee for a nanny Laughing

Have to do that?  Why on earth would you assume a negative spin to something so postive?  I really don't understand your constant negativty for those who do things diffrently than you, such a sad and narrow view.  I'm so sorry you have that view.
