Happy Friday (and a holiday weekend to boot)!!
The virtual detox known as Friday Flip-offs is brought to you every week by Gigi of Kludgy Mom fame! Make sure to stop by her blog to show her some love!
Without further ado…
To the local school board for forcing us to purchase clear or mesh backpacks for our children. Let me explain something to you people… the clear, plastic-y type backpacks aren’t worth a shit. By Christmas they are all stiff and ripping and a waste of my time. The mesh backpacks? They offer no support AT ALL for young childrens backs and posture. On Tuesday, the school nurse called to say that my Neil-age was sick. His back pack looked extremely overstuffed. On Wednesday morning I decided to weigh it. SEVENTEEN POUNDS!! Ridiculous! My little man is 10 years old and weighs 61 lbs. If he is going to be required to pack around a back pack that weighs more than 10% of his own body weight, please allow me to buy a sturdy, well padded back pack. For your lack of understanding… FLIP OFF.
To the Equator that decided to move to 37° 40′ 8″ N (that’s Kentucky). You roasted us and made the Summer months unbearable. So much so that now Summer is pretty much over and I don’t know where it went. Possibly back to 0° N or S with you? … FLIP OFF.
To social networking “friends” that haven’t spoken more than 10 words to me…. ever. This is your notice. I’m going to be doing a clean up on da Facebook today. It’s not a popularity contest so my “friend” count doesn’t mean shit. Having people that actually speak to me on my list is more important to me. It kind of amazes me the people who will send you a friend request. Looking back I’m not sure why I even accepted. So guess what…. FLIP OFF.
To the factory where my husband works… Listen I know that you pay my bills and I appreciate the overtime that you offer on a normal basis, but this weekend? Really? Come on! I want to holiday on a holiday… why you gots to ruin it for me? Ugh… FLIP OFF.
Virtual detox is awesome! Give it a try and visit with other bloggers at Kludgy Mom!
P.S. I’m going to be working on the new Fall blog layout today. I know I’m supposed to wait until the Autumnal Equinox, but… but… I’m itching to change it up! I just can’t wait 2 1/2 more weeks! Bare with me during the construction period…
