Doug and I need change now and then. We both know people who have never moved other than when they got married. They have never rearranged their house. Nothing ever changes - and they like it that way. That is so incredibly foreign to us! Even growing up, I remember getting to the point that I needed a change. A rearranging of something. My bedroom. My school setup. Something. College was the same way. And, Doug and I both moved a lot, so that contributed to the reality of being accustomed to change. Doug and I recently counted up how many times we've moved in our lifetime, and it's been a lot - the average was once every one and a half to two years. It's just in our blood to have change. (God knew what He was doing when He put us together, didn't He?)
One of the easiest ways to find change is a home rearrangement. While some people shudder at the thought, Doug and I find it immensely enjoyable! We were going to do it for date night, but just really didn't feel well. So, we put it off until Saturday. We still didn't feel well and didn't have much energy, but the rearranging was almost like therapy for us.
The focus rooms for this go-around were the living room and study (the fourth bedroom where the kids' toys are kept).
The biggest change was removing the entertainment center from the living room. Woo-hoo! I so prefer having the tv out of the main living room!
So, here's the living room now...
And, here's the study...we finally hung the curtains I made nearly three months ago. Yay!
And, Steven broke it in immediately by building what I think is an airport on the floor...
