My husband and I had spent three days painting and decorating our large patio for a Fourth of July party. Then we cooked for the big event. After all the guests had departed, we washed dishes until midnight. Finally my tired husband sat down at the table and stared at a "Things to Do Today" memo pad, trying to plan his chores for the following day. The next morning I came into the kitchen and picked up his list. My husband had written down just one task: "Get Up."
