Montenegrin Commandments

So, you may have noticed my little nap button on the side of my blog. That's because I love naps and being lazy.

Black Lake Montenegro
My sister sent me a postcard from Montenegro (a tiny little country in southeast Europe) and I'm thinking about moving there as these are their "10 Commandments." Also, it looks rather lovely!

1. Man was born tired and he lives to rest
2. Love your bed as you love yourself
3. Rest during the day, so during the night you can sleep
4. Do not work, work kills
5. If you see someone resting, help him
6. Work less than you can, and what you can give away to others.
7. In shade is salvation, nobody has died of rest.
8. Work brings illness, don't die young.
9. If, by chance, you wish to work; sit, wait, you will see, it will pass.
10. When you see others eating and drinking, move closer; if you see them working move away, do not disturb them.

Montenegro, anyone??

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
