Random things I’ve purchased on Amazon

I got this breakfast sandwich maker recently (in an effort to get more protein into my breakfasts) but dang, I burned the heck out of my thumb on it this morning. And just two days after I burned my finger on my mom’s oven. I guess I’m kind a professional chef now, don’t they burn themselves all the time? Nah, I guess they wouldn’t be holding a ziplock bag of ice on their finger and whimpering.


On a more nasal topic, I have been wearing Breathe-Right strips to sleep for at least a decade now because of my sinuses. (If I don’t wear one, I wake up in the middle of the night feeling like I’m suffocating.) However, with old age has come thinner skin, I suppose, and I recently started reacting to the adhesive. (Naturally after I bought a jumbo box at Costco.) I decided to try something different, and last night I wore one of these to sleep, and it only felt mildly extremely weird, and I was able to sleep, and I didn’t have adhesive stuck to my nose all day! Win! Except now I know for sure one side of my nose is roomier than the other because one tube when in easily and the other could only be jammed in about 3/4 of the way.


I didn’t actually order this, but my sister got it for me after she saw on a Facebook comment that I wanted one. (Good sissy!) Unfortunately, it arrived broken, but it’ll be replaced shortly and all of my hard butter woes will be over!

I actually ordered this way back in mid-August, but it was released yesterday and Linus is already a few dozen pages in. It just makes me happy that he wanted a book, even if it is mostly drawings. I also love that he said he didn’t want to read it too much because he didn’t want it to be over too fast.

On a non-Amazon note, I’ve also fallen into the LuLaRoe trap and now own a pair of (black) leggings, a dress, and a skirt. I’ve been burned a few times with weird sizing on a couple of other things (I mean, depending on the item, I’m a L, XL, 2XL, or 3XL), so I’m very cautious to try new stuff. Plus it’s hard to order. You basically have to join a bunch of groups on FB and hope they have the item you want in a pattern you don’t find offensive. But when you find something you like, it’s worth it. For our trip to the UK, I want to bring a bunch of knit stuff that won’t wrinkle and that I can layer.

Okay, back to work so I can pay for all this stuff.
