“The biggest sin is sitting on your ass.” ~ Florynce Kennedy

I’m hoping she meant that figuratively or I’m screwed.

It’s the day after Snowmageddon. We got a paltry five inches. Not that five inches isn’t enough to halt all traffic (including school buses!). Yesterday, I had the hellion and her kids here because they were “bored”. Like I’m the entertainment? Little high-pitched voices screaming, “She hit me!”, “No-ny! No-ny!” (she can’t say Nina), and the sounds of things crashing to the floor, sent the muse into hiding. I should have unpacked the Pack ‘n’ Play and given them both boxing gloves.

Still, no excuses. Today, I will pay the price with double the pagecount to make up.

I’m sure what Florynce meant was that the greatest sin is doing nothing. Doing nothing when it’s time to speak. Doing nothing when it’s time to act.

Well, I’m acting now. Just on my ass. 😛

    Make yourself feel better and get a stability ball to replace your desk chair. I have one now at my desk at work (where I spend way too much time sitting around) and I love it. Best part, when a good sound comes on you can really rock to it.

    Not a huge tweet-diva, but someone mentioned the #MentionMonday hashtag. Thought I’d conduct a little experiment. If you saw the announcement of this blog because of #MentionMonday, let me know!

    I hope it’s figuratively too!
