Friday Flip-offs #3

Good morning, everyone!  As is my new Friday tradition, I am linking up with my girl, Kludgy Mom and flipping off all the things that made me crabby this week.

But if you want to read MORE Sluiter Nation today?  I am over at my partner in running, Loving the Burn, talking about my fitness journey.  Be warned:  there is more talk about how I HATE fitness then how much I love it.  So go check her out and leave some commenty love over there!

And now?  Here they are….

First up this week are all the poopy diapers Eddie has had.  Seriously?  We have been up two hours and I’ve already changed two.  And he thinks it’s hilarious.  It is not.  Flip off.

Also?  That pesky molar that has been giving Eddie trouble sleeping?  While I appreciate that you are now through?  You still bug him.  So flip off to you my pearly white friend.

The 18 mosquito bites that I had on my legs that somehow multiplied to 28 bites and make my legs look like I shoot up heroin all over the place?  Um, yes.  I WAS going to wear a skirt to a wedding tomorrow and now I am considering pants because of you.  Big massive flip off!

And lastly to the weight that has decided to settle around my midsection and make me too fat for all the cute dresses I bought last year for weddings.  I just wanted to be cute again this year for weddings and you are making me feel all self-conscious and round.  uncool, belly fat.  uncool.  FLIPPITY FLIP OFF!

It’s your turn!!! Head over to Kludgy Mom’s and read some more or link up your own!

And then head over to Loving the Burn and read about how I wish I could still eat pizza and LOSE weight.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Kimberly says

    I love this idea! I really need to "flip off" my employer today and stupid stove shopping!

  2. I hate mosquitoes, and they love me!! Flip off!!

    and diapers always get a permanent flip. 🙂 I don't change any anymore and I'll still flip 'em off with ya!

  3. WTH am I Doing? says

    Ugh. I'm so with you on the uncool roundness. I never had a belly before baby. A$$? Yes, plenty of that, but never the midsection roundness. I heartily Flip Off with you!

  4. I'd like to join in the mosquito and mid section flips. Both are… UGH!! All there is to it.

  5. Pumpkin and Piglet says

    With you on the nappies! Piglet has days where all I seem to do is change them on the hour, every hour!

  6. SkyWaitress says

    Totally with you on flipping off mosquitoes. Hateful, worthless little creatures.

    Of all the beautiful animals in danger of extinction why could they be one of them.

    Who would miss them? Not me.

  7. Ohhhhh I am with your doing the flippity flip flip to belly roundness… Same boat as you are in……

  8. Two middle fingers to the belly fat over here, too. I should NOT have stepped on the scale this morning.

  9. Flipping them mosquitoes with you too, girl! I used to wear only pants/jeans all the time because they just love me too much. Those molars can be such a pain for everyone. Poor Eddie!

  10. I will join you by flipping off (here in secret) the husband who allowed my daughter to buy a video-camera this evening. I will be on Youtube all cranky and mosquito-bitten before you know it.
