Memorable Moment Mondays: Vacation Detox

Hey Humble Readers!

The Gamgee clan survived an 11 hour road trip yesterday (with two under two), and now we are happily ensconsed in our comfy little hobbit-hole.  No one was too terribly traumatized from the long day in the car yesterday, and I am diligently working to get us back onto some semblance of a schedule.

The vacation was... interesting.  Awkward.  Uncomfortable.  I honestly felt like I was walking on eggshells a lot of the time.  But it was also important that we be there, if only so that I could verify my Mom's health (physical and emotional) and say my piece.   Sometime later I will give you all a bit of a clearer picture of the whole mess, but that's not the point of this post.

One of the better nights of the vacation involved me, my Mom, my sister and far too much alcohol...
The aftermath

and the first season of The Big Bang Theory...

(Good Mummy disclaimer:  All wee-lings were accounted for and safely tucked into their beds before the games began.)

It's been more than two days since we did this, and I'm happily detoxing.  I don't think I'll drink pear cider coolers again for a while though. 

I know that this isn't the usual fodder for MMM, but it was certainly memorable.  Today is all about unpacking, enjoying a cool rainy day, and just breathing deeply.  Ginny is napping and Pippin is sucking loudly on his fist while doing tummy time. 

It's good to be home!


  1. I love this...a memorable moment indeed! I think I'm going to have to copy those guidelines for BBT drinking game...should be interesting!

    Glad your vacation was...good? Enjoy getting back to reality!

  2. I am in love with BBT!!! We have all the available seasons, so I can watch them anytime. What will I ever do if that show gets cancelled? LOL. I don't drink at all, but I bet I could modify that game to be for eating donuts or chocolate or something super yummy. :) Still a fun game... choose your poison, alcohol hangover or fat rolls hang(ing)over! LOL.

  3. Glad you are back at home sweet home. And I understand "memorable" visits back home when there are domestic issues...we have a Christmas I will never forget where I had a wonderful "discussion" with my unfaithful father. Yep, good times. Sounds like alcohol was a help. ;-)

  4. haha so fun that you played this game... sounds like a fun evening amidst a 'interesting?' trip!! :)

  5. Confession: I have never seen BBT! I was drunk for the first time in a very long time this past weekend. I didn't get home until 3am! I had a good time but probably won't be doing anything like that again any time soon! Glad you are all home safe from your trip!

  6. OHMAGOODNESS!!!!!!!!!! Both Hubster and I are HUGE BBT fans (we own the first 4 seasons on dvd) so I called him over to show him that picture of the rules, he was very entertained. I saved the picture, so that someday when I'm not pregnant anymore, I can get to play. Can't wait for more news on what happened during the trip!


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
