Dinah,

you know you could think of it as a hobby too. I mean think of all the vices you could have that cost money too. So many people spend money on things that have little value in the long run. At least what you do has significant value for you in the long run. I think I tend to only think about the money aspect if I don't think I am doing well enough in something. Like ok on top of everything look at how much money you are wasted too? Do you do that too. And that is something I think we have to stop if you do that too. Because in the long we are worth every penny. Now that is a hard sell for me too but we are still worth it.

I agree with Daisym and annierose. Somehow you and you are certainly not alone in this, equate money with something deep down inside, self worth, esteem something. Why else do you have the ticker tape going but that is still ok too. My h is an economist and he too likes to keep up with how much he spends on varies things. If it bothers you too much explore it, if not say ok this is what I do instead of golf.
