Double Duty Friday

I love Kludgy Mom and her Flip Off Fridays are right up my alley. So after reading the Flip off Friday post written by Go Pop Go, I couldn't help but participate and join the ride. I have some things I want to Flip off, why not start the weekend stress free and leave it all on the table (or the blog)? After all Saturday is my birthday and who wants to carry that mess over? Right. So here we go.

To the Sand man: FLIP OFF. You haven't sprinkled effective sleepy dust in my son's eyes for a couple weeks now. I don't know if he's getting what's left over from the night before or the lower grade dust you give to teething infants but we need the good stuff and pronto before mommy loses it. You deserve a double FLIP OFF.

To my cat: FLIP OFF. I know you are old, lazy and fat. But how are you're worse than the kids? When they stop whining you start! And in your old age you've become a Diva, pooping on the floor when I don't clean you liter box the minute a drop of pee hits it. And thanks to you, my husband and I have had our share of poop between our toes first thing in the morning. And why do you eat so much and follow me whining around until I top off your bowl?You better watch it or your next ride will be to the Vet.

To my stubborn baby weight: FLIP OFF. I work out, jump, run, lift squat and lunge and you hang around moving slower than an inch worm in a pile of mud. But I'll be damned if you're here in 2011!

To my neighbor: FLIP OFF. I know you are a nice old man but you've never had kids and mine don't get your sarcasm. So when you tell my kids you are going to have a party with Mickey Mouse, candy, dolls and trains, they believe you, especially my 3 year old. Then I have to tell her this isn't true which sends her to into serious breakdown mode that I have to deal with, so thanks.

To age 36: FLIP OFF. I know you will be here tomorrow and I will officially be closer to 30 than 40, (but still younger than my husband). FLIP OFF. FLIP OFF. FLIP OFF. You're not going to get me down with your slower metabolism and increase in gray hair. I feel good, look good and just watch in 4 years, 40 will be my best age yet. Life is good! So again..FLIP OFF!

Ahhhhhhhh.......never felt better!

Now onto that I'm stress free, onto the good stuff, or wait maybe that was the good stuff. So ok, onto the other stuff. I love everything about blogging, including reading new blogs!

  1. Found you via Friday Flip Offs - just have to agree with your baby weight flip off ( i flipped mine off last week! )
    My son is 7 months old and i lost the baby weight but, with sleep deprivation and extra eating for energy, have managed to put some of it back on. Flip off indeed!

  2. Great post and great idea! I'd be telling my neighbor to flip off too! As for the b-day... mine is coming up and I'll be closer to 50 than 40, so even though you're not thrilled, it could be worse! (Oh and happy birthday.)

    Stopping by from SITS.

  3. Hi!!! Thanks for coming by and joining the flipoffs this week!!! I hear you on many of those. i remember the nights when Sandman never seemed to visit our kids' bedrooms. So frustrating!!!

    and that neighbor? he sounds like a piece of work! flip off!!!

    hope you join up next week, too! :)

  4. Flip off Friday. What a novel idea?! Just get it all off your chest so you can enjoy the weekend. Hope next week is much better with the whole sleep thing. Bad kitty! Poop between the toes may be a "distancing" thing so you won't be so sad or miss her so much when she's gone--just a theory. Happy early birthday in case I don't get back by tomorrow. -EW

  5. Thanks for the linkups and thanks for following me. I'm following you back and I love your blog and will be checking back for future posts.

Enjoy your weekend and I hope you have a wonderful Birthday!!

  6. Danielle, this is so funny! My daughter has not been sleeping as well for a couple of weeks too. I think all the excitement about her birthday caught up with her sleep! Very cute post! Have a great day!

    Cat! I throw ours outside! They are seriously worse than the kids...agreed.
    Come say hi and follow me back :)

  8. OHhh my cat is just like that, old, fat, lazy, and sooo picky. He takes 3 bites from his bowl and lets me know it is no longer full!
    Happy Birthday a little early, hope it is full of love and family.
    hmmm the neighbor guy is kind of a
    *&& so maybe you could find a good use for that cat poo :)

  9. Welcome to the Flip Offs. Isn't it great. I totally hear what you are saying about your cat. My guy has TWO male cats....The litter box is a big deal around

  10. I'll flip off my baby weight, too...can I still call it that even though my baby is 2?

  11. Oooh, love the flip offs. I imagine they are very stress relieving. Stopping in, a bit late, from Friday follow!!
    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  12. Oh man, Danielle. Can't believe i missed your first flips! Excellent, btw!

    And did flipping off the sandman work? Could you let him know I'll be flipping him off as well if things don't change in my house?
