Women’s Favorite Email of the Year

 A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while
 his wife stayed home.
He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed:
 ‘Dear Lord,
I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife
merely stays at home. 
I want her to know what I go through. 
So, please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen
God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man’s wish.
The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.
  He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate,
 Awakened the kids,

 Set out their school clothes,
Fed them breakfast,
Packed their lunches,
Drove them to school,
Came home and picked up the dry cleaning, grabbed a package to mail,
took it to the postoffice, droped the dry cleaning off and stopped at the bank to make a deposit.
Went grocery shopping,

 Drove home to put away the groceries,
Paid the bills and balanced the check book.
He cleaned the cat’s litter box and bathed the dog.
Then, it was already 1P.M.
And he hurried to make the beds,
Do the laundry, vacuum, dust, 
And sweep and mop the kitchen floor!
Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an
 argument with them on the way home.
Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organized to do
their homework.
Then, set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing.

 At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables
 for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper.

 After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry,
  bathed the kids,
 and put them to bed at 9:30 P.M.
He was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren’t
 finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love,
 which he managed to get through without complaint.

The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said: 
 “Lord, I don’t know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife’s being able to stay
home all day. Please, oh! Oh! Please, let us trade back.  Amen
The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied:
‘My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will
 be happy to change things back to the way they were…
 you’ll just have to wait nine months, though,
 you got pregnant last night.’
