For Moms - this is totally my house!

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's
getting late. I think I'll go to bed."
So 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.

She filled the sugar bowl, put spoons and bowls on the table
and
prepared 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 sewed a loose button.
She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone
back
on the charger and put the telephone book 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 text book out from hiding
under
the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped
the
envelope and wrote a quick list 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 and the patio light was on.
She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside
lamps
and TV's, 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 six 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 THEY ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL......
(and they can't die because they still have things to do!!!)

Now...GO TO BED!
