welcome to my world

I decide to water my plants.
As I turn on the hose, I look over at my car and decide it needs washed.
As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the car that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
I lay my car keys on a chair, put the junk mail in the garbage can by the chair and notice the can is full.
So, I decide to put the bills back on the chair 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 the check book out of my purse which is on the chair, and see that there is only one check left.
My extra checks are in the desk in the in the bedroom, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd 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.
The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refirgerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.
I put the Coke on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.
I decided I better put them back on my desk, but I'm going to water the flowers.
I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but won't remember that it's on the kitchen table so
I decide to put it back in the livingroom where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I set the remote back 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
  • and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

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

Go ahead and laugh..... your day is coming....if it's not already here!

I think I was born in "your day" because this is my life! ESPECIALLY when I'm cleaning. No way can I stay in one room. Not a chance. You'd have to put up Trudi-sized baby gates so I will stay put!
