When I'm in an uncomfortable situation, that's when I wish for my invisibility. I would like to simply disappear to free myself from that time and that place.
Sometimes, I wish I could lose ten pounds with the snap of a finger. That is usually related to an event where I'm seeing friends from the past and am feeling particularly chubby at the moment.
There are times when I would love to be able to put my hyper children into a state of calmness...actually, this one happens nearly every day.
Every Sunday morning and every Wednesday night, I am supposed to be at church early for Bible Quizzing practice. I am the assistant coach and I'm late every time. Seriously, every single time. It's so hard to get my four children dressed, fed, looking presentable, and out the door on time. I've taken to waking up a half hour earlier on Sundays and eating dinner an hour sooner on Wednesdays. Still, I'm late.
On Sunday evenings, I typically have vocal music practice at church. Yep, I'm late every time. I start getting ready at 4:00 and still struggle. Last week, I started getting ready one hour earlier and still ran late! I just don't know what to do with myself.
I tried setting my clocks fast. That didn't work because I knew they were fast. I tried setting out everyone's clothes and ironing them the night before. That didn't help either. I'm afraid I'm a lost cause. When I was single and newly married, I was early for everything. I blame it totally on the children.
Tell me, what would you choose as your super power, if you were allowed just one? Also, do you tend to run late, no matter how hard you try?
