You learn something new every day

Some of you may remember how I bought a Wallflower air freshener from Bath and Body Works in March, only to discover that I couldn’t use it because the outlets in my house are horizontal and the Wallflower bulbs use oil that would leak out if the bulb was used horizontally.  Well, I was in Bath and Body Works again this weekend and mentioned it to a sales person who informed me that the plug on the Wallflower can be rotated.  So, the Wallflower is now plugged in and working just fine.  Time will tell if it works well long-term, but at least I can give it a shot now.  Plus, when I initially bought it back in March, I figured I wouldn’t be able to use it at my next post due to voltage and electrical outlet differences, but they use the same outlets and voltages in Canada, so it looks like I can take it to Ottawa if it works well.

Speaking of taking stuff to Ottawa, or not taking stuff as the case may be, I did some work in my “box room” this weekend and filled up two large garbage bags full of stuff to throw out rather than move to my next post.  So, that room looks a little less cluttered and that’s a box or two of stuff that won’t get moved to Ottawa.  I still have more work to do in that room but it’s at least a start.
