Time for Change

Life is just moving right along. Not much planned for the week.
I spent the last two days working on my living room. It all started when I decided to shampoo the carpet in the living room. I have one of those little Bissell carpet shampooers .It works really well, but I don't do a wall to wall job with it. I go around most of the furniture, but I had a brilliant idea. Why don't I change the furniture a tad bit. I am so sick of it being the same old way all the time. I bought a new TV three or four years ago and it weighs about a ton and cannot be moved, except with dynamite. Now everybody has the little thin ones that you can easily move. My TV shall not be moved, but I can move everything else. I moved the couch by shoving and pushing and sitting and resting and nudging and elbowing and pushing some more and resting and shoving until I got it in the right spot. Now the chairs are just about as bad. I had no idea that stuff was so heavy. My brilliant idea is getting a little dimmer all the time. I had to sit and rest more than I shoved and pushed, but I finally got everything where I want it. Makes the whole room look totally different. I was too tired after all that to shampoo the carpet so this morning I tackled the carpet. It was a piece of cake compared to moving the furniture. I am enjoying the new look and I think it was worth the effort. I need to tackle a couple closets next. I hate doing closets, I take all the stuff out and end up putting it right back in the closet again. I wish I could be like a friend I once had. If she bought a new set of sheets, she threw the old ones out. The same with underwear, if you buy a new pair of bloomers, throw the old ones out. I just can't bring myself to do that yet, what if I need them again...???
