Aloha Friday #8

alohafriday 

Welcome to Aloha Friday!  If you want to play along, visit An Island Life.

Here is my question:

What is something in your life that you wish you did more often?

I wish I called friends and family more often to connect with them “in person” rather than relying on email or Facebook (or my blog!). 

Please leave your answer in my comments – I look forward to reading your responses!!

There are A L O T of things I wish I did more often. I think the one thing I wish I did more often and was better at is showing my husband more affection and how much I appreciate him.

Cathy said...

That is a good question! I wish I spent more quality time with my husband. Seems like we only get an hour of alone time every day...after the kids are in bed.

Kept up with my housework- ha ha

I would say doing more things for other people. I feel like there's never enough time to do stuff for myself and family, much less other deserving people!

Jennifer said...

More quality time with my husband.

I wish I would send more time with family.. I wish I would make more lunch plans with friends.. I wish I would cook more.. the list could go on!

Great question and I could put down so many answers. I wish that I was better at communicating with my family that lives far away. I really should go see my grandparents more!

I'm super stressed out so I dont get to stop and enjoy my kids as much as I'd like. I'm working on it though!

Brandi said...

I wish we (as a family) did more stuff out of our house together.

I also wish I scrapbooked and sewed more!

I wish I spent more time outdoors. :)

Pamela Kramer said...

Play tennis. It's great for stress relief. I'm not that great but I don't care. I have a great time.

Momstart said...

Sawatzky family said...

I wish I was able to spend more time just playing with my kids...working on it! :)

janetfaye said...

I also wish that I called my family more, thanks for the reminder!

Melissa said...

I wish I saw my family and did stuff with them more often. We're always doing stuff with my b/f's family, which is like mine.. but it's just not the same.

Okay Miss M,

I really agree with your answer!
But, if I have to be original, I would say exercise. I need to commit to it, but i am inconsistant!


I often forget your baby is only 1. He has so much hair! It throws me. you have so many wonderful pictures posted this week! Lovin' all of them. You take great photos, well, it helps that your models are so adorable!!!!

Have a great weekend!

more family events

I wish I traveled more. Unfortunately living with infertility I live in "maybe" land and never make travel plans to visit friends and family "in case" i'm pregnant when the vacation would come to be. (I will automatically be a high-risk pregnancy and unable to fly and such).

Hubby and I went out with a group of friends..WITHOUT our son last weekend. It was only for about 2-3 hours...but we had a good time. Its easy to get caught up in being mommy and daddy and we forget that we're only 23. Anyway, we've only gone out like 3 times since our son was born over 1 1/2 years ago!

pam said...

I would just like to take more time and smell the flowers!

Brittany and Charlie said...

I wish took my dog on more walks. He loves them but I am just to lazy:(

sues2u2 said...

I wish Hubby & I had more alone time that wasn't spent in front of the tv! Would love to be able to go out just the two of us.

Tara said...

Exercise!!! lol and Follow my diet!!! Probably the main thing .. is just to be consistent with everything in life..

Mariana @ Riding With No Hands said...

There are SO many things I could list here. I'd say exercising, sleeping, eating healthier, keeping in touch with family... all would be at the top of my list!

Mocha Dad said...

I wish I could visit my out of town friends more.

Ya know what? I think I'm going to have to "ditto" you. I was actually talking to my cousin recently and we came to the conclusion that we don't *talk* enough. It's always through email or our blogs. There are just some people that it's really nice to *talk* to.

(But at the same time, it's also nice to have email, blogs, FB so you don't *have* to talk if you're not in the mood.)
