I read blogs about women who are so good at saving money. I am truly impressed by them. I get inspired. I do well for a while.
And then it happens.
I get the urge to spend some money.
The money in the savings account starts to call to me.
A few weeks ago I was feeling all melancholy remembering how we used to go to Disneyland with our kids on Sundays after church. We would go, walk around, go on a few rides, watch the parade, and go home. I loved it.
We haven't had Disney passes since Paige, who is now 4, was born.
I've been missing them. Probably more than the kids.
So, I asked hubby if we could get passes again (they are good for a whole year of admission to both Disney parks) and he said "Yes". I was so excited.
Off the family ran to Disneyland. Paige's first experience there. Of course my water loving daughter was more interested in the trickle of water coming out of Goofy's hose than any of the rides.
She played in the water for half an hour until we dragged her away.
She thought Toontown was great. We went during Spring Break so it was a little crowded to wait in line to talk with Mickey and Minnie.
We can do that on Sunday when there aren't as many people around (generally).
The older kids were great about letting Paige run around Toontown and not complain about going on rides. She had so much fun.
We road the train around the park several times. She had no interest in the other rides. She is my train girl.
The next time someone complains to you about the economy you can tell them that you know this lady in California who is doing her part to stimulate the economy one Disney Buck at a time.
I am such a trail blazer.
I feel so proud.
