"You think...let me go over these again...I don't know, gluttony is cutting it pretty close. And don't forget about sloth."
I'll admit, sloth is probably up there on my list. In fact, this blogging interlude is brought to you by the walls I am supposed to be sanding and prepping for paint. I finished the seven foot hallway coming into my kitchen, and called it done.
Envy is my greatest character flaw though, I am certain. The good thing is, I'm rarely jealous of people I know (siblings excluded). Also, I covet objects in phases, so I am not brooding about something for too long. Right now, I am plagued by two serious bouts of envy. One is camera envy. My pictures, especially my food pictures, are just not turning out, and it's driving me crazy. The other is chimney envy. We bought a house without a fireplace, and most days I think I'm okay with that. Still, as I look out my window and see white smoke puffing from the chimney behind me on a cold afternoon (afternoon fires are the best, don't you agree?), the green-eyed monster comes out. Sometimes I drive around the neighborhood, talking to my husband, "Look at the chimney on that house. Man, I bet they have a fireplace in their living room, and their master bedroom." Yes, chimney envy has got me bad; but on a day like today, can you blame me?
