I have to cut to the chase. You all are bad for one’s sanity.
Yes, you. No, I’m not talking to that other guy over there, but YOU.
Because, see, all this talk of imminent Disney trips and resort choices and trip reports and helping one another make touring plans is facilitating a feeling of discontent.
Now, see, I pride myself it being a rather contented person. I accept the fact “anything worth doing is worth taking time to do” or whatever little saying you prefer that keeps the envy at bay.
It isn’t working. I’m trying to hold on, making all my Disney plans, finding Disney T-shirts (and other Disney-themed items) for our trip in 2020. My wife and I have been filling our free time watching Disney Food Vlogs.
But it isn’t working. Because both of us keep looking at the calendar and wonder why it is taking so long to get to 2020. It is taking FOREVER.
So, this leaves three options.
Everyone else on these forums must STOP POSTING about their trips IMMEDIATELY. Share nothing about the joys of planning, the joys of staying, the joys of reminiscing. Easy enough.
I stop visiting this forum. Oh, and I’m sure that would make many of you SO INCREDIBLY happy, too. Don’t think I don’t know that. But, see, here’s the thing: I don’t have that kind of self-control, and I think you all know that. I mean, would you expect an chocoholic to NOT partake of a piece of dark chocolate for over TWO YEARS? I don’t think so!
I plan another Disney trip in 2019 to tide us over until our trip in 2020. Not an expensive trip, mind you. Just a little off-site trip with 3 kids. Thing is, this would mean dropping our trip to Silver Dollar City, which we’re looking forward to. But how can we possibly afford TWO TRIPS in one year? Can’t be done. Well, not without incurring significant amounts of debt.
Hmm. If I charge the entire trip on our Disney Visa card, then 2% of the cost will go back into our 2020 trip. So, it really is a win.
No. I have to be strong. And so it leaves me no choice. I’m afraid you all are going to have to stop posting. Going with option 1. See, it really is in everyone’s best interest. (And by “everyone” I really mean me.)
