The 'Move Furniture Itch'...
The living room isn't the only area to get this treatment. Now that we are in a house with laminate floors in the bedroom, I'm able to move our bedroom furniture around, too (moving big dressers and a bed attached to a heavy and awkward headboard on carpet usually ended in frustration, so I stopped doing it). And my office - I manage to move that at least 4 times a year (less furniture).
The furniture re-arranging always gets started before The Husband can protest. He is left to help me move the big stuff into its final, temporary resting place. This time, however, I said casually that I was experiencing the "Move Furniture Itch" at the early stages of the disease, well before I retrieved the tape measure. Lesson learned - I was informed that moving the TV would not be happening this year. Then, he proceeded to show me (because I'm a very visual person and just telling me would result in my a) not believing him or b) ignoring him) that one of the legs of the TV stand (something we bought as a temporary item years ago) has a small crack in the plastic.
So, the TV can't be moved! Which only makes my job more challenging! Instead of rearranging all the furniture, I will have to come up with a new configurement based on the TV staying where it is! Because, you know, unless that itch is scratched, it'll just get worse - fester - basically drive me insane! Of course I could always move the bedroom and the office and see if that satisfies me for now...HA!
Anyone out there get the "Move Furniture Itch"? Is spring cleaning on your agenda for the month of April? Raise your hand if you're glad its April!!!
