This is How I Feel, Volume 17

this is how I feel

Hey pals, new here? Every Friday I do a “This is How I Feel” where I scour the internet for GIFs illustrating my various emotions.


When I’m at a party and a couple starts arguing.

This is How I Feel, Volume 17



When my kids ask me if I want to play Candyland with them.

This is How I Feel, Volume 17


After tackling dinner/bath time/bedtime for the girls by myself.

This is How I Feel, Volume 17



When asked if I have a caption for every GIF I find.

This is How I Feel, Volume 17


When I’m trying to choose between checkout lines in Target.

This would be a GIF if you put it on mute. Maybe. I’m on Instagram. :)

    You made my morning, Roo! I have nothing else to say, I’m laughing so hard.all of them.so funny!

    WHERE DID YOU–sorry. Where did you get that horse hat? Wait. It doesn’t matter. Also, was that like a “I’m fabulous?” head shake or like a “I don’t care what you think of me, I’m riding this trike alll the way across the room” head shake?

    • Reply Roo July 19, 2013 at 11:45 am

      I’ll, um, ask the unicorn when I see her next, but I’m pretty sure it was a “Hate on, Haters. I am fabulous.” Just a guess, though. :)

  • Reply Carrie July 19, 2013 at 9:27 am

    I took the unicorn head shake as an “I’m going to kill you in your sleep” kind of thing. Creepy! : )

    • Reply Roo July 19, 2013 at 11:46 am

      Creepy but you loooove it, maybe.

  • Reply Kelly July 19, 2013 at 9:56 am

    Your mastery of the interwebs is amazing.

    • Reply Roo July 19, 2013 at 11:46 am

      Thank you, Kelly. My years as a youth AOLing prepared me for this moment.

  • Reply Sarah F. July 19, 2013 at 9:59 am

    Once again, genius. However, I feel like that with Mouse Trap, over Candyland.

    • Reply Roo July 19, 2013 at 11:48 am

      My girls have not get been exposed to Mouse Trap, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.

      • Reply Catherine July 19, 2013 at 12:46 pm

        My son wanted Mouse Trap so bad so I happily bought him one when I found it at our local thrift store for 50c. Now I will do anything to avoid that game. We never had Candyland and it sounds like that was good luck! :)

  • Reply Rebecca July 19, 2013 at 10:12 am

    I’m SO CREEPED OUT BY THAT UNICORN HEAD! But I also love how fresh it thinks it is. You scare me, Roo. But I think I like it? I’m scared into liking it?

    • Reply Roo July 19, 2013 at 11:48 am

      You’re scared of how much you like it?

  • Reply Jodi T. July 19, 2013 at 10:16 am

    HIL-A-RI-OUS. Love the unicorn.

  • Reply Jacqueline July 19, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Roo…the unicorn is making me scared for your mental health. Maybe it was the month without TV?

  • Reply Brad July 19, 2013 at 10:31 am

    So… can that unicorn do the dougie? And since I’m making requests, maybe the butterfly too? I think watching a unicorn do the butterfly could make the Internet explode. Try it.

  • Reply Liz | Hogs Ever After July 19, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Yes, yes, yes to the cat in the Target line! If you ever see me checking out, just go to the other open line (after saying hi and being my new best friend, of course). I ALWAYS pick the wrong one after doing that dance. All four grannies in front of me will def be enrolling for that Target Card and 5% savings today.

  • Reply Shelby July 19, 2013 at 10:42 am

    Two cats in one post?
    I think you secretly like them.
    I really need that unicorn mask.

  • Reply Kathy July 19, 2013 at 10:45 am

    I always feel bad not wanting to play candyland with my kids. Maybe now not so much. Funny!

  • Reply Whitney Dupuis July 19, 2013 at 10:57 am

    Oh the cat! Oh the unicorn! Thank goodness for you Roo!!!

  • Reply Kim R. July 19, 2013 at 10:59 am

    I have wondered since the morning routine vid if the unicorn was a gift or if you sought it out and bought it for yourself?
    I guess questioning how the unicorn came into existence may be overstepping some magical boundary though, so I will understand if you just tell me the faries and garden gnomes dropped it off.

    All I wanna know is what is that furry monster in the right of the cat video….the world may never know.

  • Reply Cara July 19, 2013 at 11:21 am

    I can’t believe another week has gone by! These were hysterical…but I’m starting to wonder…TWO cats in one post?? Come on and admit it…you really love cats… :-)

  • Reply Kristin @ What She Said July 19, 2013 at 11:25 am

    The Target one and the one about tackling dinner/bath/bedtime on your own – YES!

  • Reply Beverly {Flamingo Toes} July 19, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Ok hands down. These are my favorite posts all week – anywhere on the interwebs. That is all.

  • Reply Andrea July 19, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I want a unicorn head so badly, all the cool kids have them!

  • Reply Jackie July 19, 2013 at 11:57 am

    I watched that thinking, “Is that her…that can’t be her…no that’s her.” Amazing!

  • Reply K Fletch July 19, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    Hahahaha, I love the batman one! ….NOT YET…

  • Reply Anna @ Gone Banannas July 19, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    I am going to love these. Forever. And IIIIIIIIII will always love yyyyoooOOOOOOuuuu!!

  • Reply Kristin B. July 19, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    When I saw the unicorn on instagram I just thought you had cleverly photo shopped a unicorn head over yours. The fact that you have an actual mask/head….I. need. one. I love your interweb prowess and your Friday’s this is how I feel.

  • Reply Rachel McCoy July 19, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    These are seriously the best. Please don’t ever stop doing them. The Melissa McCarthy on the couch one made me howl. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these posts and they make Fridays so awesome!!!

  • Reply Kira @ Little Daily Reflections July 19, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    OMG – the cat & the Target line – YES! Bahahahaha.

    I have to tell you that “TIHIF” is always the highlight of my Friday morning. And also that, now I see GIFs in other places and it makes me wonder, “how would *this* make Roo feel?” #itcouldbecreepybutitssupposedtobeabondingmomentokay?

  • Reply Laura @losingrace July 19, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I cant decide if I love or hate the unicorn head…part of me thinks it hilarious and part of me thinks it might give me nightmares similar to the ones I used to get after watching the movie “it”.

    Target checkout line. YES.

  • Reply Nicole July 19, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Haha, oh man, I just laughed hard at those. Happy Friday, Roo!

  • Reply Erin July 19, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    I could watch that cat tuck and roll all day! So cute!

  • Reply Nicole W. July 19, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    The target line cat…my favorite of the week! Thanks for the after lunch laughter :] Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Robin Dini July 19, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    You have got to be kidding me. That video of you…dude. you’re funny.

  • Reply Holly Johnson July 22, 2013 at 1:10 am

    That cat is seriously freaking me out, and I love cats.

  • Reply Alexandra July 22, 2013 at 1:38 am

    I love your “this is how I feel” Fridays.

    I love the Target-line cat!!! Totally me, and totally hilarious.
