It feels like I have a million things to do before Easter gets here. So what am I going to do?
Blog-whine about it Make a list, so I don't forget anything. That's the ticket.
Maybe then I can stop loosing my temper with GeekBaby as we try to play games and he deliberately breaks the rules, then smiles about it like it makes him smart.
Newsflash, my son. It doesn't make you smart. It makes you a smartass. And angering your tired, hormonal, fussed-out mother is foolish. Also, you can too put on your own *redacted* socks and boots.
Anyway, here's what's left.
- Go to work Wednesday AND Thursday.
- Clean the house. At least the downstairs. Guests shouldn't need to see my bathroom.
- Ruthlessly clean my kitchen. Don't forget the microwave, me, it's filthy.
- Get the Easter tub out of the attic.
Pour unbleached tea lights for Tenebrae.
- Format Tenebrae texts into something readable.
Look up times for Triduum services.
- Pour a new Paschal candle.
- But first, make a new pillar candle mold for said candle.
- And buy some more mold sealer.
- Decorate said candle.
- There will be six people for dinner. Gotta find a sixth chair.
- …Next year it will be seven chairs. I didn't have seven chairs even before I busted one. *sob*
Plan out the three-day long Easter cooking schedule. No last minute additions to the menu this year! Calculate my estimated egg and butter usage. Go to the grocery store with GeekBaby.
- Go to the grocery store without GeekBaby.
Fret over whether my lamb cake mold will arrive by Friday.FedEx says it will. Make cross pennant, just in case my cake mold does arrive on time.
- Measure capacity of lamb cake mold to determine amount of Italian Cream Cake to make.
- Avoid going into labor.
I'm tired just typing it all. Wish me luck as I prepare to check off #16.
Update: Lots of these are little piddling tasks, or things that will occur in their due time. But listing them out made me feel lots better.
