the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.

She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load
of clothes into the washng machine, 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.

"I'm on my way," she said.
She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat

In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing

her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and

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?
