    I got this in my email from my sister today and it was so sweet I just wanted to share it with you all.

    I asked the Lord to tell me
    Why my house is such a mess.
    He asked if I'd been 'computering',
    And I had to answer 'yes.'
    He told me to get off my fanny,
    And tidy up the house.
    And so I started cleaning up...
    The smudges off my mouse.
    I wiped and shined the topside.
    That really did the trick....
    I was just admiring my good work.
    I didn't mean to 'click.'
    But click, I did, and oops - I found
    A real absorbing site
    That I got SO way into it -
    I was into it all night.

    Nothing's changed except my mouse.
    It's very, very shiny.
    I guess my house will stay a mess......
    While I sit here on my hiney.

    Good One. That happened to me today! And then instead of cleaning I was winterizing chicken and duck pens. Reading about or messing with ducks and chickens is Much more fun then cleaning!

    I thought this might be the reason why....

    A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

    The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

    Proceeding into the house, he found an even bigger mess.

    A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

    In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

    In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide.

    Dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

    He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.

    He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

    He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out of the bathroom door.

    As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

    As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.

    She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

    He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?'

    She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me sarcastically what in the world I do all day?'

    'Yes,' was his incredulous reply.

    She answered, 'Well, today, I didn't do it.'

    The only thing he would be upset about is if dinner wasn't served.
