Being An Adult Is Stupid

Making adult decisions is stupid.

Or is it the guilt from making adult decisions that’s the stupid part? Or maybe it’s the disappointment from the result of the adult decisions is stupid. Either way, making adult decisions is stupid.

For the first time in 6 years, we won’t have Disney World park passes.

cue the violins • pass the tissues • write the songs

I know. First World Problems over here. We’re lucky to have had the last few years to go to the theme parks pretty much as often as we wanted to, visiting with friends who came to town, and being picky about where and when we went.

But that whole adult decision-making crap has reared it’s nasty head, and financially, we just can’t do it.

Our annual passes expired last weekend, but the last time we went to a theme park was May. Our passes black-out summer months and heavy holiday attendance days, and seriously, we don’t want to go those days anyway. 98º with 30,000 tourists waiting for 3 hours to ride a roller coaster? nothankyouverymuch

So that’s we’re we are at this point in our stupid adult-decision-making lives: Deciding we have to be all smart and shit, and it totally hurts my stupid heart.

I’m sorry. This part of adulthood totally sucks.

Well, my roommate might be able to get 3 of you in – I can ask if there’s sometime you want to go.

Ohhhhhhh…I may take you up on that some time. Thank you! We have other friends who may be able to get us in at some point, but I HATE asking for those kinds of favors.

We had to make the same decision a few years ago about our Universal Passes. Being an adult does suck sometimes.

It sucks big time as it is now the best time of year to go. Perhaps we could turn off our TV service and then we could use that money to go? We’d also have some spending money left over! At least until Game of Thrones comes back…

I feel you. We’ve had to make some tough calls in the past year to cut back and refocus on our long-term financial health. It’s helped that we’ve discussed our priorities with the kids and are really frank about the fact that we have enough money to pay for what we need, but not everything they want. We’ve involved them in making some minor financial decisions (e.g., paying for hot lunch at school or packing a lunch and using the $ for an upcoming trip) and they’re getting it. We have less whining and “I wants” when they have a goal to focus on (e.g., the girl is saving for horseback riding lessons or and the boy is saving for his own iPad). Even then, it stinks to have to be the grown up, especially when it’s something you want as much as they do.

Oh, I so know the feeling! We didn’t have ours for the first time in 6 years last year. We go for our annual Fort Wilderness trip next month and I wouldn’t mind checking out the other parks for a change. When we have Fl Res. annual passes, we only go to Disney. I have never been to Sea World! But my husband will win on this one…

Agreed. Adult decisions suck sometimes.
