Now that I'm finished with school, I have all sorts of time on my hands.

The question is:  what to do with it?

Finally, after 2 1/2 years, I have time to...

figure out my new camera and Photoshop.

plant a bigger garden, full of fresh veggies and fruit for my family.

re-do Elijah's room, making it more "teenager-y" and less "school-boy-like".

plan new window treatments for the downstairs.

plan some new landscaping for our backyard.

visit with friends, old and new.

clean my house (aww, do I have to?).

surf Pinterest for new ideas, and have the time to carry them out.

Mixed in with all these big plans of mine, though, are the things I have to do, not just want to do.  Work my 24-plus hours a week at the hospital.  Take the kids to their various school/sporting events.  Volunteer at Isabel's and Gabe's schools.  Take care of the house, the groceries, the kids, homework assignments, etc.  Make time for Joe. Really, I don't know how I managed to squeeze getting my Bachelor's degree in with all of those things.

I'm excited for this new chapter of my life, having time to do the things I want to do and managing my time to do the things I need to do.  The trick is mixing the two things together, I think.

What's on your to-do list this spring?
