Lame excuses.


Many months ago, I wrote a post saying I was going to join the choir.    I really intended to!  But me being the worst procrastinator in the universe, every week I’d say to myself, “I’ll go next week.”  Each week it seemed I had a different reason for not going.  Weeks turned into months, and now Easter is almost here.

I’ve always wanted to sing in a choir.  Music is very spiritual and I always feel closer to God when I sing in church, but I’d always make excuses for not showing up to choir practice.  Pick any of the following  (I used every one of these at least once):  I’m too tired, I don’t like to be around other people, I’m not a very good singer, I don’t feel like driving, it’s too cold, I haven’t had dinner, I’d rather blog, I have to answer emails, I have a headache, I might have an anxiety attack.

Even I knew these were lame excuses and I just didn’t want to commit myself to anything requiring any effort on my part, even an hour and a half once a week.

But I finally made the commitment and signed the paperwork, so I have no reason anymore not to attend practice.   So  if you see me blogging or commenting here tonight between 6:30 PM and 8 PM, please yell at me.  Tell me to get my derriere over to the church and get the hell off the Internet.
