K, so a while back a posted a thread about how my mom wanted to take us to Ringling Brothers. Of course I had a problem with this, so I was asking for help on what to do. Anyway, every time I'd ask her about taking us to a different circus, she'd just say she didn't want to talk about it. This morning I decided I'd give it another shot, then she told me, "To be honest, I don't know if I can afford anything right now." Which is kind of bad, because it means we're doing bad on money, but I'm focusing on the silver lining. I also pointed out that we've been wanting to go to certain theme parks and museums for a long time now, and how we'd all be OK with that. And when she said that was a great idea, I actually remembered seeing something about getting free tickets to these events! (forget where, but she's looking into it). So, it's not 100% positive we won't be going, but the odds are we won't.
