Sí! No me gusta matar el tiempo con las cuentas. Las matemáticas más altas son más importantes.

Now to be on context and this might be funny to some and not to others. For the latter I apologize in advance.

Más asustada que monja con atraso

I will be waiting...

In this case, we also say "retraso":

Mi hermana cree que está embarazada, tiene un retraso de un mes (o tiene una falta)

Surely this sentence will answer your question about the nun, Lou Ann

More frightened than a nun whose period is late.
