Changing things up

Most people do not love change…and in many instances, I will tend to resist it, too.  But, in the arena of room design and furniture layout…I am a sucker for change.  I love rearranging furniture and trying to maximize space in our home.  If a room isn’t functioning, then I will spend every waking moment (ya’ll know how much I love my sleep…see item #7 here) thinking about how to change it until I come up with a better and more efficient plan for the room.  I have done this ever since I can remember.  When I walk in a room, I am always searching to find the best configuration and flow.  But, who likes to lift and move furniture around to find the best plan???  My poor lil muscles can only take so much and if I ask Sam to move a piece of furniture more than twice, I can guarantee that 9 times out of 10, I will get this look from him.

Yes, even the most patient man I know apparently has a breaking point 😉  And now it kind of makes sense why he sometimes he will call me “Lucy”…

Fred Mertz: Crazy for Lucy, or crazy for ordinary people?

Well, here I thought I was being all fancy schmacy when I went out and purchased one of those lovely drafting notebooks.  I would measure the room and my furniture and then play around with the pieces until I found the best arrangement.

me trying to come up with the best configuration for the boys closets. Yes, a closet counts as a room…as does a pantry. Am I obsessive?
