I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
No, this isn’t some tail of debauchery and too much Mother’s Day punch. It’s a tale about how I, Ashley aka Crunchy, am going to black out my social media on Mother’s Day. Yup, I am going to unplug for ONE WHOLE DAY!
According to Mr. Crunchy, I might just need straight jacket this Sunday or you could possibly find me in a corner rocking myself, but I really have faith that I can do it. I mean I am a business woman so I have to be on social media all the time (hubby says I am addicted). This weekend I am going to prove whom wrong.
Working from home I admit it’s REALLY hard to unplug. I am new to the area and don’t have many friends, and yes all of my friends live in this tiny little box, but that’s ok. Well, to treat myself for Mother’s Day I am going to go 24 hours without touching a computer. I am even going a step further and giving hubby my cell phone, YIKES!
This weekend it’s supposed to be nice, so we are going to venture out and find some nice canoeing spots if we can. That’s one of the reasons that we moved to the land of 10,000 lakes. Other than that not sure what we are going to do. I know the kids have something up their sleeves because they have asked me about a bajillion times when Mother’s Day is. (I guess that’s sweet that the teenagers still care)
Heck, my kids are going to black out with me. If they aren’t plugged into their Nintendo DS screens, they are on the computer or watching television. Darn it, it’s my day! They have to pay attention to me right?
In honor of #SocialBlackout courtesy of Metlife, I am going to put up this cute Snoopy Logo as my Crunchy Frugalista profile photo! Feel free to join in on the fun. That way you spend more time with your family and enjoy yourself this Mother’s Day! Do you think you can do it?
