Airy Christmas

For those of you celebrating Christmas today, hope you're having a wonderful day!

The little person woke me up really early this morning so we could see what goodies Santa had left for us. We were very fortunate to receive such lovely gifts and wanted to share them with the rest of the family so we decided to wake them up, too!

We gathered around the tree and exchanged presents. There were so many nice surprises and of course, a lot of great laughs. One of the gifts that generated a lot of attention was the Air-O-Sage, Air Drive Leg Massager. Hilarious!

The back story to receiving this item is that while we were in Japan, the woman that we were renting the house in Osaka from was an aromatherapist who ran a spa out of one of her homes with the most amazing leg massager. While you were lying on the massage bed (face up), your legs would be placed in this device that would squeeze your thighs and calves intermittently with the most pleasing pressure. It was amazing but sadly, much too expensive for just personal use. I often wished there was something similar for a more reasonable price and often joked with my husband that someone should create a massager similar to a blood pressure cuff that you could wear on your legs and feet. Well, guess what people?! There is! Introducing the Air-O-Sage...

Of course, it's nothing like the leg massager from Japan but dang, it looks pretty snazzy and futuristic! At one point, I thought it was going to pop as it kept pumping around my legs. Once the blood rushed back to my legs and feet, I got my sister to try them on. Needless to say, we all had bellyaches from the laughing (which we quickly filled with too much food!).

Oh my goodness, this freaks me out! :o
I also panic so much from the blood pressure thingies that my pressure can't even be measured. Eeek! Claustrophobia-inducing!

This very strange contraption is definitely not for the claustrophobic. It's like having air mattresses blown up around your extremities! (Stranger still - I actually enjoy the sensation! Heh!) :)
