Et·som·ni·a /etˈsämnēə/ noun. 1. A sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered in one’s sleep.

Wee /wē/adjective.  1. Little

It’s tiny-palooza here on Etsomnia™. Once again, I can’t sleep, and this time, I decided to hunt for gratuitously tiny lovelies (and a few teensy tragedies). I can already tell this post is going to be very bad for my bank account. For example, I don’t even have a dog, but I’m sorely tempted to buy one of these.

    • I am fortunate enough to not be on chemo, but I did have a drunken late-night Etsy habit for a while. Nearly every day, the mailman brought me a surprise!

      The day I opened the mail to discover used Spanx was when I decided to unlink my PayPal account from my Etsy account so I was forced to actually get up and find my wallet to buy stuff. The surprise packages stopped after that.

      Admitting you have a problem is the first step . . .
