Aloha Friday, Little Big Things

It's Aloha Friday and that means I get to take it easy and ask a question of you. In other words, I'm being lazy. In Blogland, I've been lazy all week, but in real life...not so much. I've started a new schedule at work of 4 9 hour days and a 4 hour day. I love the new schedule, but it is requiring me to make an adjustment to when I do everything else. I've got it all worked out though, and next week will go a lot smoother.

As busy as I've been at work, it can seem like I haven't accomplished anything else. But, sometimes, even the smallest of things can be a really big accomplishment. some of my little but big accomplishments this week are:

I watched a movie with my youngest daughter. (She's 16, and is usually alone in her room, and I'm usually online, so this is a big deal!)

I got in touch with my cousin on Facebook. (it's been a few years.)

I colored my hair purple. (well, my hair stylist Laura C, did. She rocks!)

I killed a giant mosquito for my daughter. (Usually, she's killing giant bugs for me, (yes, I have an irrational fear of palmetto bugs, so?!) so it was nice change to be the calm one.

I went to the gym, 3 times! Let's get physical physical (Olivia Newton John)

My question for you:

What little big thing did you accomplish this week?

  1. Uhm....I accomplished NOTHING! I was sick with strep throat so does that excuse me?
    Oh wait....Monday I got a front load washer and dryer...and installed it (ok Prince Charming installed it, but I helped carry those bad boys in the house) and that was it. The rest of the week was spent at work and on the couch. I did not feel good.

  2. I organized my linen closet finally! :)

  3. So very much laundry and cleaning this week as my family has been sick with a stomach bug. Just surviving that without getting sick myself has been accomplishment enough!

  4. Hmmm, I worked everyday from like 8 to 6-7, but on Tues, I stayed late to help a boss build a table, I still managed to cook dinner both last night and wednesday. I'm proud of myself for that. Normally it's leftovers, or take out.

  5. I got through Tuesday! I work at a bank and since we had Monday off for President's Day, Tuesday was a zoo and I survived!

  6. Actually, this week I got nothing done because hubby decided at the last minute to take most of the week off...maybe next week I'll have better luck with my list! ;)

    Aloha: Relax

  7. I ordered some mylar bags for food storage.

  8. Watching movies with your teenager is great! I loved watching movies with my mom.

    I am pleased to report that I accomplished something huge this week: I sent in our tax organizer to our accountant--whew!

  9. I know I did accomplish things this week but right now I'm tired and grumpy and can't think of a darn thing :-) Maybe I could just count getting through another difficult week of trying to keep our family business going with no work coming in -- sigh. I think I'll count that! :-)

    I'm a new follower :-)

  10. I thread my sewing machine all by myself and I've bought materials to make my curtains. I'm terrified.

    Enjoy your weekend.
