My Life Lately, A Tale of GIFs: VACATION EDITION





When The Mister first suggested that we take a vacation with two six month old babies…

claire huxtable no

When I agreed to said vacation, provided it be taken at The Shack…

i guess


When he decided that he’d come up three days early and rip up the carpet and put in wood floors in the living room and then mentioned that these days also included a trip to the movies and the casino….

slap the shit


When I realized I had to pack for two babies, a dog and myself for six days…by myself…

this is madness


When I had to make a stop in the middle of our trip for a business purpose and the HR ladies took the girls all around the office as I kept thinking about their next mealtime…



When I stopped at a rest stop to let the dog out and the girls eat at a picnic table and some lady walking by gave me the “you have your hands full” speech….

side eye clueless

When I got to The Shack and The Mister looked like he just woke up….

middle finger


When every night (except for tonight…knock on wood) Emma has decided to pull a sleep regression and cry for at least 20 minutes before she gave up and fell asleep…



When every day was too cold or rainy to go on the boat…

wah wah wah

When the weather is finally right but we get there, get everything on except the babies and the battery is dead…


throwing papers up in air


When we try to revisit the boat and battery and find a stray senior dog by the side of the road, I take him home, and his owners are douchebags of the utmost order who let him sleep in the garage on a paper thin bed…



When Brooklyn has a mental breakdown thinking we’ll drop her off at some random house because we dropped that dog off somewhere…



When The Mister is in charge of grocery shopping…



When I am in charge of my own vacation breakfast…twice…





When the house down two over sounds like monkeys live there…for days on end…and no one is around…

great odins ravin

When the girls miss their naps, The Mister has a headache and I am sick of monkey sounds, limited internet and the Tigers losing…

sheldon not enough chamomile tea


When I call the sheriff’s office and imagine what the dispatchers are saying about me post-call…


When I think of what my next vacation should look like…

i could tell you but then id have to kill you

    This is a masterpiece of gifs. I mean, I want to say I feel bad about this experience, but if it led to this post… 😉

      I am like a comedian. Always looking for good material. And that usually requires a lot of eye-rolling adventures.

    I am raging for sure about those poor primates – did the Sheriff even show up? I just don’t believe in the whole primates as pets thing.

    This is a truly wonderful collection of gifs – you really knocked this one out of the park, inconsistent internet and all :)

    OT: what the hell happened to Jack Nicholson – did he die? You just never see him anymore… I know he’s old as hell, but c’mon, I can’t believe they’re not trotting him out in some capacity…

      I don’t know if the sheriff did show up that night, but given the drive by of the people who may or may not live there past our place the next day, I’d say something happened. i agree. primates are not pets. the people out that way are also very uneducated usually so they probably don’t get what a primate is.

      i got yelled at for using our data on GIFs. worth it.

      he is kind of incognito lately. i just assume he’s always banging some 29 year old woman trying to make her way in hollywood. like constantly.

    Well. Sounds like your vacation was not dull at all.

    Also, where do you find all those gifs??

      I collect them as I see them. I’m like a collector. I find a lot of them on Tumblr, but just about anywhere. I also do very targeted searches of things I know there’s just GOT to be a GIF for.

    The Jack Nicholson gif was PURE GOLD. I’m going to say this for the billionth time, but I love all these gifs you find and post and they are so appropriate and they make my day. Sorry for the giant run-on sentence, but sometimes you have to have a crazy run-on sentence to truly convey how you feel.

    I’ve just recently (like in the past month or so) gotten into “The Big Bang Theory” (yeah I know it’s been on for AGES, and I don’t know how I missed it). So I ADORE all the Sheldon gifts so much. The chamomile tea quote — I died.

      I was late to TBBT, too. Don’t feel too bad.

Don't just sit there...say something.
