Sluggery Marches to My Moving Beat

Lin's

slug lifts its head, looking this way and that. Moving, editing, reading, writing, shopping, mailing...what IS she thinking? She's going to give slugs a bad name if she doesn't stop, put her feet up and wallow in...well...sluggery.

"I am Lin's TRUE core...unfortunately I have a hard forcing our true purpose in life upon her. If she's not doing ten things at once, she starts to feel guilty.

I have tried, over the years to remind her she is entitled to...well...

sluggery. You'd think after having been technically...you know...

DEAD several times throughout her life...(dammit she drowned when she was four, for lassitude's sake...only to be resuscitated by the woman who literally swam into her bobbing body)...she'd take a break from acting like she's an

octopus with more arms than sense.

Packing for this move would be enough for most people to crash, weary and breathless,

to the closest chair, bed, or floor mat...but not my wayward Reluctant Slug. Nope, she packs, runs around taking things to the dumpster, cooking, editing her first full length novel

Echoes From The Past, preparing for the June release of her

Life's Journey, a sort of autobiographical tale, promoting her daughter's June release, Kat Holmes' debut of her Hekate's Web Vampire series

Hidden about some really powerful vampires caught in the Web of the


Goddess Hekate...and well I guess I should say...Oh My Goddess...Hekate...that woman is wicked in her plots and plans...She REALLY gives sluggery a bad name...Think that's where Lin learned it? Nah, she's been this way since long before Kat wrote Hidden.

Add to this monumentally NON-slug-like behavior, she's ALSO posting so many Ladybug Lin reviews of the books she crams INTO all of this I'M exhausted watching her!

For me, Lin's inner slug,

it's frustrating getting her to set a spell and let the world drift by a bit. It is like beating my slime against a

rain filled gully, it just washes away...so I'm looking for

suggestions...short of 

her to the white leather recliner that doesn't get anywhere NEAR the use it should...

How do I get Lin to embrace sluggery when all she chants is this?..."OMG there's only four more packing days before the move and I still have so much to do!"

Your suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Kindly,

Lin's Slug.

Oh for God's sakes, go sit DOWN for a minute!

May I suggest a shot or two of cream sherry and a bubble bath (just don't drop your kindle in the bathtub. That might make things worse.

Don't worry, Inner Slug, a pane ride in 6 days will have her sitting down.

Remember, everything else will wait a few days! Take a deep breath and relax! You'll get it done! And if you take a break, you'll be more effective afterwards. That's Auntie Conda's advice.

Lin,

You obviously don't do enough. Get back to work! Ha-ha. Just kidding. Thanks for all you do.

Kat Holmes said...

Thanks for the plug Mom.:-)

Lin said...

Always Kat. :-)

Kevin, I'm honored and thoroughly enjoy what I do.

Auntie Conda, I have the feeling the body is not going to allow me to play octopus too much longer. I had a bad coughing spell last not and cracked one of my ribs. That definfiely makes sluggery enouraging.

Anonymous...not sure how restful the Kitties are going to be on my nervous system during PLANE DAY, but it won't be boring,.

Cyrus, threw out all the bubble bath stuff last week when I did a nose dive through all the stuff packed in a crate beneath the bathroom sink...Lordy did we have LOTS of shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath with slipped under there and forgot.

Gail..I sent my TV and DVD player down there already. Trying to play DVDs on my CPU means popping up when there's no PLAY ALL command because my CPU did not come with a remote...oh and I still have maybe four more boxes that need to be packed yet.

Happy packing. You can relax on the plane. Sorry to hear about your cracked rib.
