I attended a Thermomix demo recently. And the feelings I went home with?
I felt cheated.
I felt that all of the stuff I have been making at home. From scratch. That take forever. All my efforts. Such a waste.
A time waste, that is. Yes, all of my home-cooking, real-food, preservative-free, time-consuming meals could have been made in the fraction of the time. A fraction I tell you! I could have spent more time just lounging in my yoga pants and reading.
What’s worse. I am now enlightened. I know a better way. I know the only way. And yet I still have to do things the old way. I am gutted.
I feel like a kid who really, realllly, reallly wants an expensive toy. And before they even ask they know that the answer will probably be no.
Do you ever think that? “Yes, I so would love this but…ya…husband probably wouldn’t like the price.”
Well, I have a brilliant idea. I am making a spreadsheet for my husband. His first glance at it will be through this website. He’s a CPA. He loves spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are his love language. My hope is that he actually sees the pros of buying a Thermomix. Not necessarily now. Or in New Zealand. But when we return to the States. By then I will print the spreadsheet and tape it everywhere around the house.
This post also may appeal to women out there who’ve gazed upon a Thermomix, dreamed about one, fallen in love with one…only to come off the cloud and realize that you’re not the only one making the decision to buy one! Since a Thermomix is a pretty penny one should consult the other half about making such a purchase.
So here it is. The golden spreadsheet. The one that may appeal to my husband. The spreadsheet that may appeal to your husband. The top 10 reasons to convince my husband that a Thermomix is a good idea. The best idea. Ever.
And if you’d like to print the spreadsheet just click the link below. Best of luck. From one real-food junkie to the next. Hats off to you. I am eager to hear your stories. –> Spreadsheet for Husband about Thermomix
