Just got this via email. Made me smile..

Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, "I'm tired, and it's getting
>>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
>>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
>>washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the
>>pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the
>>telephonebook into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a
>>wastebasket and hung
>>up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for thebedroom.
>>Stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some
>>for the field trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the
>>She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the
>>and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her
>>purse. Mum
>>then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution &
>>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,
>> 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
>>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...?
>>(and we can't die sooner, we still have things to do!!!!)
>>Send this to five phenomenal women today... they'll love you for it!
