I have finally lost the war with my wife.
Originally, getting the GF was her idea because she had seen the amazing things I had made with the laser at work. We took out a loan and pre-ordered a pro unit with a filter right away.
Then came the delays, and with it my wife’s doubt that we had made a good decision. I tried to get her to read the forums and stay positive, but it was a losing battle. Eventually, she made the claim that we needed the money and that by not canceling the order I was being selfish and not putting the family’s needs first. (We are perfectly fine financially, and had the machine arrived there would have never been an issue)
But boy, she sure knows how to win an argument eh?
Needless to say, I am sad (and even a little bitter) that I couldn’t wait out the storm long enough for it to just arrive. I held on as long as I could, but it simply took too long.
My dreams of a glowforge are dead. I’m sure it will be awesome.
