What Super Power Would You Like To Have?

What Super Power Would You Want? I find myself wishing I could be two or three places at once. It seems I can never get everything I'd like to do done in a day. Here is the list of things I'd like to do every day:

I enjoy blogging so much that it's constantly in my thoughts. I think of ideas for posts and really like drafting them and finalizing them. I love taking pictures or scanning in old ones to got with my posts as well. I also like reading other blogs and learning new things all the time. Some are very funny and make me laugh which is also good and some are just interesting. Commenting on others blogs is fun for me too as well as reading and responding to comments people leave on mine. Although I see many bloggers very upset over the changes with Entrecard, paid ads are just not that big a deal to me as long as I can reject those I do not like. The benefits outweigh the bad in my opinion. The downside of all this is that it is very time consuming. I must force myself to step away from the computer!

Another big time eater is my full-time job. It would be nice if we didn't need money and working was not necessary, but unfortunately, that is not the case. I still have 7 years until I can retire at age 62. I know that time will go be quickly, but I really look forward to the day when we can retire. I have a feeling I will still be into blogging and maybe then will be when I seriously consider monetizing my blogs. I am thankful that I can take the bus to work because it's a 40 min. ride one way and that gives me time to read.

Sleep is also important and takes a good chunk out of my 24 hour day. I aim for 7 hours a night, but sometimes it's more and more often, it's less. I generally get up at 4 a.m. to visit and comment on others blogs before going to work.

I would like to spend more time relaxing and having fun at the gym, playing with my cats, taking walks and going places with my husband, playing golf, tennis, and bowling more often, pulling weeds from our yard and just relaxing on our front porch on nice days. I'm sure there's movies on TV I would enjoy as well, but seldom watch anymore since we got the computer--it's like a magnet and draws me to it. Alas, the best I do is squeeze these things into my schedule now and then. If I didn't like blogging so much, I would quit an then have more time for these things, but right now that's not going to happen.

So you see, if only I could be in several places at once, I could easily do everything I'd like. One of me could focus on blogging and visiting other blogs all day, one could go to work while another one of me could go somewhere and do something fun. Hey, one could sleep while the other one is at the computer participating in forum discussions or playing video games on

Finally, it seems as though whenever something special comes up it happens in pairs. We'll go a month with no definite plans for the weekend and then boom--two things come up on the same day. Why does this happen?

I wonder why God didn't give us this ability when He created humans. God is omnipresent (Ps. 139:7-12) and the Bible says we are created in his image in Genesis 1:27. Now there's a point to ponder, I think I'll ask my Pastor about this!

What super power would you like to have and why?

I wish I could fly. Definitely!

Super power? Haven't a clue...

I'm retired and I'm busier than ever. I boat about 1/3 of the time and blog and read and blog some more. I think my life is just perfect the way it is. I don't need a super power.

Have a terrific day. :)

I wish I could survive under water and explore all the deep seas and their mysteries!

Hope all has been going well :)

Daisy: I used to dream often I was flying when I was a kid. Hmm, a flying cat . . . interesting concept.

Sandee: Your life sounds great! One day I will be retired too and look forward to it!

Ailurophile: I take it you like to swim. That would be pretty neat, there is a whole other world underwater. Some very beautiful fish and coral.
