My thoughts, indeed my minds eye continues to see my living room and dining room with glossy white floors.
I know that glossy white floors on the main floor of a home which occupies two children, two dogs, three cats and two adults is not a good idea.
That's why I rearranged all of my living room furniture today. It kept me from renting a sander.
First I took apart the room.
Then I started moving moving things around.
Chaos! Mayhem! Squalor!
At one point I called Amy.
"You need to come over. I'm in a frenzy. IT IS NOT GOING WELL!" I said.
Ten minutes later I had a breakthrough. I called her back.
"Don't come over! I had an epiphany and I need to focus my energy!" I said.
She was so kind.
"You are crazy, but I understand. Go finish your room." She said.
So I did.
After my living room was put back together, but while the rest of the house was groaning under the strain of such squalor, Amy called.
"I need a break from a house problem I'm having." She whined.
"Come on over!" I cried.
She came over and had some coffee and then I took advantage of her.
She was weak and vulnerable and exactly the sort of person I needed to help me out.
"Would you like to borrow my chaise?" I asked.
"I don't have a spot for it with my room set up this way and it would be so fetching on your porch." I said.
As soon as she asked for a tape measure I knew she would take it. Ten minutes later we were loading it into her car.
What a relief it was to know that I was not going to have to talk David into storing the chaise in his office!
Once Amy was
I love how they came out!
Now I am done rearranging furniture and I am very satisfied and very tired.
I totally earned my chocolate.
