For the Long Haul

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

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.

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, put the phone back on the charger and put the phone book in 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 but stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the fieldtrip, and pulled a text book out from 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, put on her Night Solution and 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 the kids and turned out their bedside lamps, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks int o the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one still up 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 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'RE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL....

Send this to five phenomenal women today...they'll love you for it!

Then: Go to bed.

I am not sure who wrote this wonderful litle bit of humor, it was eamiled by a friend who emailed it him and so on. I just thought I wouold share today.
