One thing that sucks about being broke is that you don’t get to do things that most people feel are things you should experience in life. I have wanted to go to Disney since I was a tiny thing. I wanted to go so bad. *sigh* My best friend went and came home with Mickey Mouse ears. I hated her for that and wished her stupid Mickey Mouse ears melted and fell off. Yes, even as a child I was a bitter. Hey, wouldn’t you be? My mom refuses to fly anywhere. I didn’t fly until I was 23 and you can bet that my mother didn’t go on that trip.
Now that I have a daughter, I want her to experience the things that I didn’t experience as a child. It sure doesn’t help that my daughter watches the Disney Channel and says that she wants to go there. My goal was to take her by the age of 8. My daughter is 8. *lookin* Soooo yeah….I kind of missed the mark on this. My money is going more to medical copays and the like. My daughter has an intellectual disability and I’m a single mom at the present time (wait, why did I say that like the single part is going to change sometime soon? LOL) so my funds are extremely low and I have some loser that calls himself a man that doesn’t help support his daughter. Unfortunately, I have to be one of those responsible people with priorities. So I’m not sure when she will get to greet Mickey. The most I did so far for her was take her Sesame Place. She liked it and it was less than Disney. Every year, I go on Disney’s site and check to see how much it would be she and I went. I look and then I come back to reality. It’s not a joke. Those prices will make you wonder if you’re paying for a trip or for a car. I mean, goodness. Rich people, I envy you. You can just say “Hey, I think I want to take my kid to Disney.” You book your flight and the best hotel and take your kids.
The commercials always show people having a great time with their whole family but you don’t see them lookin at their bank account discussing how they’re going to pay for it. LOL Life would be so much better if I had money. I need to go and win the lottery or something. This being poor isn’t working. Either that or I’m gonna have to get on the pole and shake my money maker. I have a job, I work hard, I do my best, but I can’t see my kid going to Disney in the coming years. *looks at bank account* BLAH!
