11-22 Daily Prompt: A Bird, A Plane, You!

You get to choose 1 super power. Pick 1 of these and explain your choice:

1. The ability to speak and understand any language.
2. The ability to travel through time.
3. The ability to make any 2 people agree with each other.

I thought that I would want to travel through time for 3 reasons:

1. I would want to see where my ancestors came from and how they connected with their spouses becauses I have been having difficutlies tracking my ancestors from both my moms and dads side. I feel horrible when my daughter has a school project on family history and I can only give her my husbands side.

2. I would want to see the events that led up to my dad leaving our family. I have many unanswered questions and I think time travel would solve this.

3. I would want to see the various historical events that have taken place but if I only had the option to view what has happened, then this power would SUCK.

I could not be able to just witness what was taking place around me without being able to do anything about it. I would feel horrible.

Well, I guess I would have to go with having the ability to speak any language. I could open my network connections even further and be able to join any conversation with anyone.

Daily Prompt: Playtime

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Just this past week I read a blog on my company’s intranet that spotlighted a woman within our company asking her various questions and one of the questions was: How do you relax from a busy day/week?

Her answer was amazing. She stated that she was on the adventurous side and spent her time with her grown children doing various things like: racing lamborghinis in the desert, zip lining in Vegas, and learning new things like fly fishing.

I thought to myself wow she has some major connections and wow she is living life. I definitely, need to starting enjoying and living my life to the fulliest.

So, how do I play in my daily life?

Lately, I have been involved in a new project that involves me to take on a very big role. So to be honest, I have not had any time during work hours to take a nice break.

After I am done with work, and after a long commute, I start my next job. Mom and wife duty. I rarely have time to stop and smell the roses. There is so much I have to take care of and not enough time.

What does playtime look like?

Playtime during work hours looks like: me taking my breaks so that I could take a walk, surf the web, read, or catch up with my peers so that I could re-energize.

Playtime after work looks like: making time to read, having family game night, blogging, and crocheting.

On the weekend, I need to come up with more adventures. I have mentioned to my husband that we need to start enjoying our youth and start really enjoying our life. We have come up with some ideas like: learning how to sail, taking a hot air balloon ride, taking a ride on a blimp, or booking a flight to some where we have never been for the weekend.

How do you play?

I would love to hear what you do. I may added it to my list.

Daily Prompt: Safety First

The most recent situation that has made me feel unsafe was when I opened the door to a stranger, in my daughters presence.

I felt so horrible, violated, and most of all I was disappointed in myself.

Why would I do such a thing. Really?

I felt so sick because I not only opened the door to a stranger but I let the stranger in my house without validating this person’s true identity.

Lucky for me and for my daughters sake this person was really the maintenance man that I had been expecting all day.

Since I had been waiting so long, I just assume that the person that knocked on the door would be my regular maintenance guy but I was caught off guard when it was not him and went into shock mode as I opened the door without checking through the peephole or asking who it was before hand.

Shame, Shame, on me.

I learned my lesson and yesterday when I got an unexpected knock at the door early in the morning, I didn’t open the door to the stranger.

You want to know about ME?

My favorite blogger Suzie81 has posted a blog asking various questions to her followers.

Since I am new, I have opted to answer her questions on my blog so that all my followers can learn a little more about me.

Enjoy!

1. Why have you chosen your blog name?

The T represents the first letter of my first name. I decided on memoirs because I want my blog to be an electronic journal on what is going on in my life.

2. When you have an hour of free-time, what do you do?

I like to crochet, knit, blog, and exercise. Lately, I have been using my lunch hour to catch up on the blogs I follow. To be honest, in the last couple of months I have had no down time.

3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what would it be?

Well, I am 30 and over the last couple of months, I can see my age starting to set in with fine wrinkles and other body changes. I would want to be 22 forever.

4. If you could learn to do something, what would it be?

I would want to learn more about the American Legal System and more about human behavior. I hope to get into law enforcement in the next coming years and hope to understand why people do the things they do so that I can help them over come their hurdles. Learning about space would be nice to know too!

5. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lotto?

I would buy a house for my family.

6. What is the thing that makes you absolutely unique?

Hmmm. I can’t say I have a unique skill but I am a unique snowflake and I am making a mark in the world. I am doing my part to make the world a better place. Or at least I hope so!!!

Well, I answered it in my opening. I really enjoy reading from various bloggers but the questions is what is my favorite blog and it’s Suzie81’s blog.
