George is now the Theme park King.... which makes me the Queen of all things Themed.





Well, today is a lazy day... but I didn't mention to you all that my husband starts a new job tomorrow, at Universal Studios Orlando... It is a second job which means it will be extra money for us. We have been struggling to travel as much as we're used to because, He is a server/waiter at Disney and works for mostly tips... Well, Disney is busy as usual but tips are not as high as they have been in the past because of the economy, I'm sure... He is a great server and it is very hard work. It is still enough money to pay all of our very high bills but the little extras like entertainment, scrapbooking supplies, eating out, and traveling are stratched really thin these days. And I still shop like nothing's changed... It's a unconscious thing, I assure you... i want to continue in a living above our means style which will cause us too much debt. Well, once the Harry Potter area opened in Universal Studios... we saw that they were getting a good crowd and perhaps that means money could be made there... I know he's not going to bring home Disney level money, Universal is not Disney, but Halloween Horror Nights at universal also brings a crowd... so, fingers crossed. Halloween horror nights also means he'll be working until 2am on those nights... I miss my George just thinking about it. I am glad that he doesn't tell me to get off my lazy less-fat ass and get a job. I love the life of the Trophy Wife. Socializing is an artform for me. Lunching with the ladies is frequent, and working out and eating right doesn't have to form less than perfectly around a "Work" schedule. He is an amazing provider... and I am a very happy girl. I realize how lucky I am.... believe me. PS... Please ignore the whininess of the can't travel enough thing... I know some folks are struggling to feed their family... as you've seen in my photos, I am well-fed. We live inexpensively so we are able to travel. It is our thing. Now that I am thinning out a little more each day... I want to "Do" things. Hopefully, Chicago will be the start of a new Traveler... one who's weight doesn't stop her from everything.
