I wish we could afford to go to Disneyland, but it is so expensive, and don't you hate it when friends on FB post pictures and boast about how they went to Disneyland, California Adventure Park, and Seaworld one day after another and more than once in a year because they have so much money?  I do!  I have this friend on my page who always does that every time she goes some place nice and then brags about it.  Sometimes I really hate FB!!!!

It would be nice to be able to do things like that a few times a year, but the reality is we can't right now.  I don't mind seeint my friends' photos.  I actually like looking.  If this friend's posts are bothering you, you could always hide her updates from your newsfeed so you don't see them the instant she shares them.

Sometimes I like to check out photos like that and other times I'm full of jealousy because we don't have money or time to take vacations like that.

You don't always know if these folks are going into debt for their vacations, though - my mum's youngest sister kept going to Mexico, the US and all over Canada but I had no idea she didn't have the money for it. One year Gramps gave the siblings money (rather than them waiting till he died to split whatever was left) and she had to use most or all of it to pay off her previous vacations...
