It's All In A Day's Work

    I decide to water my garden.

    As I trun on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.

    As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is a mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.

    I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

    I lay my car keys down on the table, put the unk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can if full.

    So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.

    But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

    I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left.

    My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

    I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold

    As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke a vase of flowers on teh counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

    I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

    I decide Ibetter put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

    I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a contrainer with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

    I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decided to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

    I pur some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

    So, I set the rmote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

    Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

    At the end of the day:

    the car isn't washed

    the bills aren't paid

    there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter

    the flowers don't have enough water

    there is still only one check in my check book

    I can't find the remote

    I can't find my glasses

    I don't remember what I did with the car keys

    Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

    I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my eMail.

    Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

    Don't laugh - - if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
