The Seven Deadly Sins

I was writing an email to my cousin telling her about my week and I made a comment about how lazy that I've been. I assured her that was only one of the Seven Deadly Sins, so I was still okay. Or was I? It got me thinking what were The Seven Deadly Sins? And here's what I discovered with a few... ummm... examples. :)

(or an expression of excessive desires)--
Have I mentioned how much I love DVR? I should write an ode to DVR: Oh! DVR, how I love thee; let me count the ways. Hmmm. I'm pretty sure my mom would have something to say about me writing love notes to TV and my sadly lacking dating life. :)

(or an over-indulgence for food)--

I did eat out nearly every day this last week, but I don't think it counts as gluttony if I'm counting calories.

(or desire for money)--
I'm safe here since I won't pay more than $4.50 for a movie ticket. Pretty miserly, but definitely not greed. Only $4.50! Don't you wish you were in Burley?!

(or laziness)--
Being home alone this week prompted me to try a nice hot, relaxing, bubble bath with an interesting book to read and avoid dwelling on all the things I SHOULD be doing. Kind of lazy but slothful? I don't think so!

(or anger and rage)--

The closest I came was when I woke on Wednesday to discover my car under 3" of snow and the only 1 day-old daffodil blooms covered with snow. Grumble! Murmur! Grrr!

(or desire of something belonging to someone else)--
Check out this great picture of my cousin Karyn, her new husband, and their "Idaho Family"... minus me. sigh.

(or vanity)--
Okay. This one I admit I'm pretty excited about... check out how I did this week! 2 pounds! Yahoo!

I had a great week (APPARENTLY!) and still managed to only hit a few of the 7 Deadly Sins. Nice! How'd you do? :)


  1. Wow. You made those 7 deadly sins seem...well, desirable. I'm not sure my branch president will appreciate that, but I am sure enjoying my new mindset ;)

  2. Wow Cindy!This is your mom checking up on your seven deadly sins!

  3. What a clever idea! I enjoy your creativity. :) Missed you at the wedding.
