Messy Messy Fail - Because I'm frugal (cheap!), I take the Bath & Body wallflower out of the wall outlet in our bedroom in the morning so I am not wasting the oil making it smell nice during the day while we are at work. I typically just place it upright in a basket on my husband's nightstand. I hear "Katie there's a mess in the bedroom"......the wallflower has overturned the wallflower and it has leaked all over the shelf. The oil even completely REMOVED the varnish from the furniture and made the bottom of the phone charger all sticky and melted. Nasty warm sugar smelling mess!Tidy Victory - I had to get the boys out of the house and to daycare on my own this morning - I woke up only 15 minutes earlier than usual and somehow managed to get out of the house THE EARLIEST EVER. It was shocking. Let's see if I can do it again on Monday!
