Laziness, have I ever offended thee?

No, for thou art my constant companion...

I kid you not, this was an actual quote from my high school chemistry teacher, Sister Marlene. She'd say it almost every time I went to the chalk board to work out a chemistry equation (how did she always know to choose the one problem I didn't finish?) Ah, nuns. You gotta love them.

But really, while I'm not lazy (not really) I AM a huge procrastinator. And the longer I put something off, the longer it doesn't get done. I wish there was a pill for that, but alas, at present, I think not. So I'm off this very hot and muggy Saturday morning to get things I've been putting off done. Like getting my next book contract in the mail (yeah, you'd think I would have done that pronto.)

Oh, and pray for the Geraci family today. We woke up this morning to a broken air-conditioner. Not pretty in Florida, folks.

I'm so sorry to hear about the air conditioner, Maria! I know, even up here in the frequently frozen North, it's hard not to have an A/C in summer. Hope it gets fixed soon ;).

Oh, no! I hope you got your air fixed! I'll be in your neck of the woods in a couple weeks and can't wait for that Florida heat:)

Maria Geraci said...

Yes, got the air fixed that same day. Halleluja!

My brother had a nun who always said, "Laziness, have I ever offended thee? No, Laziness, I have always been thy faithful servant."

Where do these quotes come from???

yes, where does this quote come from? I'm googling it, that's where I found this blog, but I haven't found it. "Laziness have I ever offended thee?"
