I've been good

Okay, so all seven Lenten vesper liturgies are in the bag. All the Sunday mornings are planned. I just roughed out our taxes sufficiently for collinsmom to file her FAFSA on line tomorrow. All my sick calls are caught up.

I am way frazzed, man. But wait! there's MORE!

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which means I have evening commitments. It's also collinsmom's birthday, so I've got to do some scrambling for that. Plus, need to drop by the hospital again for a call. I really, really need to get my oil changed. And, oh yeah, I didn't get the palm leaves burnt today, so that's the morning's job. I'll do that before I take a shower, so I won't stink like burnt palm fronds all day.

Man, dried palm fronds make a terrible stench when they burn, and the oil in them means it just hangs on wherever, whatever, and whoever the smoke comes in contact with.
