Tonight I am melting Can-do-candles Pink Sugar Cookie and OMG, OMG, OMG.........is all I can say. I have never smelt anything so freaking good in my life, EVER. I had to just go and order a bag of these and a bag of Lessies Whipped Honeydew (? I think thats the name), which is a favorite of mine and few other single tarts that I adore.
Also burning a CBV candle in Baked Apple Strudel. It feels so amazing to feel like a "housewife" again. I know all this sounds weird, but unless you have been in my shoes, you cannot imagine what its like go from one way of life to the total opposite. Imagine, being a woman and NEVER having the house to yourself for more than 30 minutes (while the husband it getting the garbage together). This is totally NOT his fault and my husband is always the biggest help and never a pest, but its just different and I am not quite ready for IT.
Sorry to ramble, just trying to make sense in all of my blabbering and such. Hope everyone is doing well. I am off to go watch some TV. Even the oldest child is OUT........yay! Its so quiet here. We don't quite know what to make of "IT". We call it "IT"........hehe. Thanks guys. Talk to you all soon. I didn't even read through the posts. I had to get here and share this with you all. Now keep in mind, he is still searching for jobs in his field but this will keep him (and me) sane for the time being.

Maurie, you crack me up! Welcome to my world. A retired DH can be challenging, although I bet some are more challenging than others. There's actually a specific type of depression in Japan that's called "retired husband syndrome." I'm not kidding. It's real. You can Google it. Anyway, I'm very happy your DH is working! That's got to be so good for all of you!
I'm burning Haley's Sinfully Hot this evening.

I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. My hubby is a firefighter and until 20 months ago, always worked a 2nd job.
I work from home and as much as I love him, he drives me nuts. When I am in my office working, he'll hover over me until I scream "QUIT STALKING ME!!!" I feel bad but I've worked from home for the past 11 years and I was really used to my space so I totally feel your pain LOL
I say go for the Can Do order!! I adore Donna's tarts. My favorite tart ever is her Pretty Woman and Cast Iron Cookies is a close 2nd.
I have Front Porch Blueberry Cookies in the kitchen (since last night) and Scentsy Skinny Dippin' in my bathroom.

My DH is home for a week, out of town for a week...lots of togetherness that one week in town. I get my "alone" routine all set - and BAM! He is under foot for the next week! Poor guy can't win!
Tonight is Scentsy's Twilight.

Best of the bunch lately:
Crosscreek - Love Spell (perfect dupe and great throw), Monster Munch
Terri's Scentsations - Pink Sugar (milder throw), Cranberry Compote (great throw and a very good straight cranberry scent)
LOL - Iced Pastel Cookies (a favorite but discontinued - smells sorta like jelly beans), Froot Loop Cookies (I never tire of this one...soooo good!)
Sugar & Spice Candles - Red Velvet Cake
I hope everyone had a good Monday and will have an even better Tuesday.

Bedroom I have CFTKR Cream Soda...that is a bust. ZERO scent.
I am going to change it CCS Panna Cotta when I get home.

I have Deep Blue Sea from Can-Do in my room and
a single clam of Squeaky Clean from Crabby Candle Co. in my bathroom
Rainy Night in Georgia by Brown Bag which was in my sons' room yesterday was not a stellar performer, so it's going too. Yipee! I love picking out the next scents!

I'm sorry, but I just have to
I've done that before. Rub an ice cube on it, and you can pick it right off. (Okay, so maybe I've done it a few times before!)
I'm melting CFTKR "Iced Lemon Snaps" from yesterday's arrivals... It is to DIE for! Strong buttery sugar cookie, slight lemon notes. Very delicious bakery, and a "must re-order" for me! Also, even though it is a lighter fragrance, 1/2 of a bundt tart is scenting my living room nicely on my 24w plate warmer.
