Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm
tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the
next day's lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls,
took meat out of the freezer for supper the following
evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the
sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load
of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured
a loose button.
She picked up the game pieces left on the table and
put the telephone book back into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung
up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the
teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a textbook out from hiding under the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and
stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on
her Night Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed
and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the
dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the
doors were locked.
She looked in on each of the kids romms and turned out
their bedside lamps, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing
for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack.
She added three things to her 6 most important things
to do list.
She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced
to no one in particular. "I'm going to bed." And he
did...without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here?
Wonder why women live longer...?
'CAUSE WE ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL .....
(and we can't die sooner, we still have things to do!!!!)
