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.
