following: A friend or family member walks in your door and immediately
says: “Oh, I see you’ve moved the couch again. But it looked perfectly fine
where it was.”
me if you have experienced the following: You wait for your husband to
come home, and all the while you’re thinking up logical reasons you can
give as to why you’ve moved his chair. (It was just a tad, really.)
me if you have experienced the following: You move the furniture, every
stick of it, and then realize you don’t like the new arrangement. And then you move it all back.
Tell me if you have multiple holes in your walls because you can’t stop rearranging the wall displays.
Discovering people who can’t help but walk into someone’s home, and your eye immediately starts wandering. And suddenly you’re visually moving every stick of furniture into what you just know would be a better spot. You keep your lips sealed. But meanwhile you’ve found the perfect spot for that chair.
If you’re there to eat a meal, your eye cannot help but glance about the room, and in your mind, put things in a different arrangement.
I’m so glad to have found women like me. Online friends who “get me.”
We bloggers drag boxes of things out of wherever we store them to decorate for the seasons. We buy different colored slip covers to change up the look of a room. We pick up dishes we don’t need because the price was simply too good to pass up. We constantly change up our mantels. We lie in bed, unable to sleep, and conjure up in our minds how we might try a little something different in the guest bedroom or office or living room.
We thrive on using things for different purposes. We change out lamps and lampshades and move paintings around. And to lend a bit of reasoning to our pursuits, we usually dust while we’re at it. Which falls under the “it needed cleaning anyway” clause.
