If Sloth Is A Sin, I Am Going To Hell

Well, I have had just about the laziest day of my life. I suppose I was remembering the Sabbath Day and Keeping It Holy. Or at least wholly on the couch where I watched some extremely inane TV and pretended to crochet while Jessie sat beside me and knit.

I did sweep the hallway. That took me about four hours to complete.

Yep. I've wasted an entire day.

So what? Who cares?

Now I think I'll make a gluten-free salmon and noodle casserole, just like Mama used to make.

As if!

Jessie isn't doing gluten these days. I, on the other hand, can't get enough of the stuff.

Anyway, although I can rationalize wasting an entire day in my mind, I still feel mighty guilty but hell's bells- guilt is my default emotional setting so what difference does it make?
Not much, baby. Not much.

Yours in guilt and Sabbath Holiness...Ms. Moon


  1. Guilt as a "default" emotion...hahaha, you crack me up!

    And hell's bells, I haven't heard that for 40 years !

    Sounds like you had a fine day to me. I have had my ear planted on the phone for 4 hours today, so my butt did not move much either, but this is what my life is usually, tomorrow's another day, Scarlet :)
    PS:....I do feel guilty however, for all the fun and love and light I take from you here and don't post anything at my own place...but not guilty enough to change my make me happy :)

  2. Stop with the guilt. I am proud of you for spending a day NOT engaged in frantic must do's on a bloody list somewhere.

    Love thyself, MerMer. It's a GOOD thing.

    And how the hell did I get to be the first instead of the 116th to comment on your blog today? Ooooh, Ha.

  3. Not so Oooh Ha.....I see someone beat me after all......oh well, coming in 2nd ain't bad.

  4. I went dancing this morning and left my dance shoes at the studio.

    The dance studio is my church.

    That, and a room where a baby is being born.

    XX Beth

  5. I don't know if anyone told you today that they loved you, If not I love you and I'm happy that you share your life with us. Have a great day.

  6. liv- Four hours on the phone? Sounds like a terrible day to me. But I'm so happy that you take some happiness here. Please- fill your cup.

    Lo- Haha! If I get SIXTEEN comments, it's a good day. You're so funny. I adore you.

    Beth- I have to tell you, I am really, really ready to have this birth begin and happen and for us to know that all is well. I should have danced today. That would have made it all better.

    Anonymous- Aw. Yes, I have been told I was loved today but does one ever hear that enough? Thank-you from the very bottom of my heart.

  7. A good day here too. Tofu for dinner all Chinesed up. I'm tired as a dog. Night, night.

  8. Nothing wrong with doing nothing in my book. I do it all the time. It means I am free to be me. Productively is rather overrated.

  9. Next time you should also stay in PJ... Every human has a birth right (no pun intended) to have two PJ days a month, and the right to sleep with socks in bed. It's my self declared bill of rights.
    And you were not doing nothing: you were ripening...
    How important is that? I know, its a key function...
    Good for you Ms Moon. Tell your guilt feeling to go and screw someone else... ;o)))) Excusez mon french.

  10. Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath -- meaning we need, even require, that rest. Enjoy it.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
