A funny thing happened on the way to the basement

Last night was my first night of no homework since September.  I wondered what i was going to do with my night when a friend suggested relaxing and putting my feet up.  Great idea, i thought.  So after my husband, son and i went and supported the FFFF at Baskin Robin’s, i came home and got into my comfy clothes and proceeded to go and put my feet up.  but first i had to check my emails…… 

then i passed the piano.  “Oh, the piano”, i thought. “I haven’t played that in months.”  So,  i sat down and proceeded to find my favorite pieces and realized that my fingers are quite out of practice.

then i headed towards the basement but remembered that i wanted to make coffee for the morning so we could make our iced coffee treats before work.   so, i did that.

Upon doing that, i remembered that i wanted to make this bean recipe that my sister gave me.  I proceeded to put that together.  i realized it had to cook for 2-3 hours… hmmmm i figured if i turned up the heat a bit it might cook faster…… 3 hours put me past my bedtime.

Then i realized that i hadn’t thrown the wet clothes from the washing machine into the dryer so i did that and then put another load in to be washed.

Then i felt my contacts starting to get dry and i figured i should run back upstairs to take them out before they bugged me anymore. 

That’s when i saw some papers lying around that i needed to put away so i grabbed them on the way…

Needless to say, 1.5 hours after i went to put my feet up, i finally ended up on the couch

Does this happen to anyone else?
