The article on Computus at Wikipaedia explains it far better than I can.

True story:

One year, for Christmas, my aunt came to visit. She lived in Virginia. As a joke we gave her a snow shovel. Ha, ha, Merry Christmas! Right?

Well, she took the shovel home to Virginia. A week later, it snowed.

Nobody else in her apartment building had a snow shovel. She was popular that year!
Does Va. not get serious snow regularly?

That I can. Except I did not sleep well, so it was a loooong day. I took a nap last evening (sounded like a good idea at the time), but then could not fall asleep. I finally fell asleep around 1 am, and then dreamed I was arguing with a jealous DH and he was REALLY mad, so I woke up from that around 3. Had just fallen asleep again, when wee kitten decided to wrestle old lady cat while both tried to jockey for position around me. I've been basically awake since then. So....about 3 hours of sleep last night.

That darn dream was so life-like, and it really bothered me. It all took place in my house almost exactly as it is. DH had been sleeping in son's room, and he woke up, came into the hallway, yelled at me to wake up, and demanded to know why I had different repair men over to fix windows over the last weeks. He was really jealous and accused me of messing around on him. Then he told me to clean up the mess of concrete in my son's room and stain the woodwork NOW.......so ...... yeah.

Lent is 40-ish days. Get used to it.

It is really weird to dream you have a bee stinging your cheek and you can't it off, and when you wake up, your hand is curled up under your face in such a way that a fingernail is digging into your cheek.

Actually, it's really 40. Sundays in Lent are not considered part of Lent.

On Sundays in Lent, you can break from your seasonal penance and it's ok

Here's a quote from the movie TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT staring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall:

Yesterday, as children's holy hour was wrapping up in the adoration chapel, I told my son he could go outside and play with his godbrother (godparents' son) for ten minutes. He looked absolutely heartbroken and whipsered into my ear, "but I have to do my homework first."

After he went outside, his godmother (kneeling next to me) started stifling her giggles. In a barely audible whisper, she said, "I can't go play, I have to do my homework, mother... and eat my vegetables... and be in bed by 8:00..." Then I started giggling...
