What a fun story to start my day with. Thanks Erin! I love those little bob clocks, too.
I just wanted to say that it's funny that you think of an item (that you could afford, I think, right?) that makes you feel better on purpose as a "luxury item." Plantar fascitis and heel spurs and nauseatingly painful and can really mess up your day and your ability to be effective in a life you love, so I would consider a machine that makes you feel significantly better to be a medical item. You wouldn't call an ice pack on a sprained ankle a luxury item, would you? And if your husband or children were hurting and you found an item that made them feel better, you would snap it up in an instant, even if you had to sacrifice, wouldn't you?
Just a little request from me to consider your own well-being among your highest priorities, because it's important to me that you live a long and pleasurable life. Sorry, I'm so selfish!
