Friday Flip Offs #12

Yep, it’s already Friday again, and that means I’m gonna flip stuff off! Gigi over at Kludgy Mom is the genius behind Friday Flip Offs, so go check her out because she is fantastic!

I’ve got two things to flip off:
1. Pink Eye. Grown women….especially ones with 3 small children….shouldn’t even be susceptible to pink eye! I think mine is allergy related, but who knows. You itch, and I’m terrified the kids are gonna get it. Oh, and my $28 LashFood Mascara? I gotta chuck it now. You suck. I’m flipping you off, big time (and please don’t spread to my other eye…)

2. Blogging! Yep, you read me right! I am flipping off blogging…but just for the day. Blogging sucks up a ton of time and energy, and although I love it, I need a little break.

A few bloggers have gotten together for the first every Blog Boycott Day! Instead of visiting blogs and responding to comments, we are just gonna hang out and chat with each other all day on Twitter and have a #BlogBoycottDay Twitter party! Fun, huh?

If you missed your chance to boycott today, no worries! There will be a Blog Boycott Day the second Friday of every month. So the next one will be on September 10th. Mark your calendars!

Cute, huh?! Then just start tweeting away and include “#BlogBoycottDay” on your tweets so we can all follow each other’s conversations and see who’s participating. My Twitter name is @mommyofamonster. What’s yours?
And don’t forget! Today is the last day that you can enter to win my giveaway for LashFood Conditioning Dramatic Mascara…it lengthens and strengthens your lashes! It ends tonight – check it out here!Please head over to the paper mama because Chelsey is going to interview me! She’s using reader’s questions, so if you have any questions that you’d like me to answer…it could be about anything…head over to the paper mama and leave the question as a comment below the post. Thanks for the opportunity Chelsey!

And so it goes…


  1. I would cry having to throw out that mascara.

    Have fun on your blog-free day! I could never do it on a Friday. If I stay off blogs, then whoever I pick for Blog Friend Feature wouldn't get as much traffic. :(
  2. Pink eye??! That gets the flip for sure....should just be a stinkin' kid disease anyway.

    Have fun tweeting tomorrow, I'm not on Twitter or I would join in!

    Good for you! Sometimes, you just have to take a breath and renew yourself... NOT with pink eye, though...

  4. pink eye SUCKS! boo! :(
  5. Sorry about the pink eye. I get it as regular as my cycle. I think it's contact/allergy related, but it looks just like pink eye and totally sucks. Love the blog boycott day. What a fab idea. I thought of flipping my blog too, but thought is was like sacreligious or something. Haha.
  6. Sorry to hear about the pink eye! Its hard when us moms get any type of sick, we should be immune to everything lol.

    I am loving the boycott day. I just started blogging a couple of months ago and am totally addicted, but I already need a break. Its 1 in the morning, I should be sleep!

    New follower, love your blog. Hope you stop by and visit me
  7. Booyah's Momma says:
    That does not sound like fun. The pink eye, I mean. The Twitter party sounds like a lot of fun.
  8. Pink eye sucks!

    Blogging does need to be flipped off - oh yeah, I did that last week sort of. However...I must be getting old because I still have no idea what the point of Twitter is and I have two twitter accounts - I'm a sheep.
  9. Yikes, sorry to hear about the pink eye, girl! Hope you'll get better soon. That party sounds like fun! :D
  10. NanaDiana says:
    Natalie- Pink eye is lovely only on albino rabbits! Hope yours clears quickly and doesn't spread to the kids. Hey...the mascara you're giving away isn't the one you are throwing out, is it?.....just askin' Diana
  11. Oh gosh, pink eye so sucks.
    Twitter hates me, but I'll try to follow you if it will let me. All I ever get is a billion error messages over there.
    I came by from blog boycott day.
  12. BOO to pink eye! and the worst part is losing the mascara. SO not fair.

    hopefully I"ll join ya for blog boycott on another Friday!
  13. Sluiter Nation says:
    pink eye?!! Total flip off!

    I don't know if I can boycott the blogs today...there will be enough boycott (involuntarily) when I go back to work! :(
  14. Allyson & Jere says:
    I HAVE to laugh that your reason for a blog boycott is how much time and energy it sucks. Yet, you'll be on twitter all day. 'Cause THAT doesn't suck up any time at all. hahahahahaha You silly girl!

    Thanks again for drumming up some followers for me!

    Oh, and once again, sorry for the pink eye. We know it, or something like unto it FAR to well at this house. WORST!
  15. The Urban Cowboy says:
    You need to stop puffing the magic dragon, if you don't want pink eye. ;)
  16. Enya @ Almost Crunchy says:
    Ah, I will truly miss you on this non-blogging day. You're my one commenter. Lol.
    Hope the pink eye clears up. Wine helps everything.
  17. Everyone needs to take time off from blogging. It's a hobby not a job. I hope you're enjoying your day!
  18. Mrs.Mayhem says:
    Pink eye stinks! Adults shouldn't be susceptible to it!
  19. blueviolet says:
    I can't believe you had to toss your LashFood mascara. That hurts!!! I hope the eye infections are gone super soon!

    I like this twitter day idea. Sounds like so much fun!
  20. Pumpkin and Piglet says:
    Hope the Pink Eye clears up soon, it's horrid! I like the idea of a blog boycott day, I've missed it this time but maybe next!
  21. Aging Mommy says:
    I got pink eye for the very first time in my life a year ago and it was SO painful as I had no idea for days what it was and my daughter did not get it, just me, thanks to Jungle Gym. I was mortified as well as in pain when I finally went to the Doctor. Hope you are better soon and sorry about your mascara!
  22. MommaKiss says:
    Apparently I flip off blogging quite often, so, you know, I can get on that party ;) I blame work. Blame The Man.

    This pink eye? Total bullcrap. Buh.
  23. MommaKiss says:
    oh, were you wondering what my twitter name is?
    you know.
    in case you were wondering
  24. The Flying Chalupa says:
    Pink eye is the WORST. I am so sorry. But I love the blog boycott idea. I'm in! In fact, I saw that on Twitter but was totally clueless. As I almost always am on Twitter.
  25. Ah Ha! I boycott your boycott and posted anyway.
  26. Lindsay {Designer Wife} says:
    Ooooh, missed the bloggy boycott day, but that is SUCH a cute idea! Will stick a button on the blog and be sure to join the next one. I need to remember to take a break every now and then. Yay! I'll bring cocktails.
