Vorab, ich mag keine Kettenbriefe, bei mir enden die Ketten, sorry! Aber was mir meine Freundin aus Irland heute geschickt hat, fand ich so klasse, das ich es Euch nicht vorenthalten wollte. Viel Spaß und ich grüße hiermit alle Mamas, ich geh dann jetzt mal schlafen ;-)
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 dinner 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, 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, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the school 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 note for the supermarket... She put both near her purse. Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution & age fighting moisturiser, 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 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 laundry basket, 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 they are made for the long haul...(And they can't die sooner, they still have things to do!!!!)
