Open the fridge and realize that the leftovers from tw o nights ago are taking up much needed room. 4. Go to get a tupperware for fridge hogging leftovers. 5. See coffee pot and stop to make some. 6. Pour water in the coffee maker and go to get the coffee. 7. See wasted dinner from picky kids on the counter. 8. Take said wasted food to dogs while hollering in the direction of the bedrooms about starving kids in other countries. 9. Finish making coffee. 10. Get tupperware for old leftovers. 11.
