The shoe I purchased from amazon is really helping though. I find I can walk in an almost-normal gait as long as I am wearing another shoe with kind of a thick sole. The shoe has also already saved me from banging that toe again at least half a dozen times since I got it. Right now, the toe doesn't even hurt anymore. It's only when I forget about it and try to actually use it that I feel the sharp stabbing pain. Today that happened twice. The first time was when I was trying to lift a heavy bucket onto a high shelf. When I couldn't quit reach it, I stretched out and used that foot (and that stupid tiny toe) for balance. Yow! The second time was when I was using the circular saw to cut a piece of particle board. When I reached the end the two halves collapsed and I tried to catch my balance with that foot (and that stupid tiny toe again).
So why was I using a circular saw? Well that brings us back to my to-do list. Remember the laundry sink I ordered from Costco? It still isn't hooked up yet, but we had to stack the washer and dryer to set it in it's place. So I have been working on getting the rest of my tiny laundry room organized. I have re-purposed shelves I found at Goodwill and shelves we had gathering dust in the garage. Sanded, painted white, and now hung in my laundry room providing much needed storage. I can finally see the finish line with that room after dealing with the horrible lack of storage for the last five years. I also found the perfect item on amazon, but I'm not going to discuss it until it arrives. I opted for standard shipping so I could get the $1 discount on a digital order.
So what have I received from amazon this week? Well, I can say this - it is so truly exciting I just couldn't wait to share! Remember the disposable toilet cleaning pads? I got four of the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush Toilet Cleaning Starter Kits! I know, not exciting at all. Two are for my mother-in-law and two are for me, now I have one for each bathroom. If they help me clean the toilet more often, then it may be exciting to whomever has to use them. I have used both the heavy duty pads and the disposable ones, and they're both good. I think perhaps the heavy duty ones are going to get a lot more use in this household however. The starter kits come with a caddy that holds both kinds of pads and the wand. I think I preferred the older style that only has a hook that hangs over the rim of the toilet tank, but I guess it is kind of nice to be able to store the pads with the wand in one place.
Not the most exciting post, but I do have a lot of items in my shopping cart right now! My subscribe-and-save should also be arriving soon, so stay tuned.
