I'm a Mover!

I was reading Beth Moore's blog and since I came in late in the "conversation" it took me awhile to figure out what she was talking about! She obviously asked whether her readers were movers or non-movers as far as furniture! One person said she had a friend come over and move things around for her then after her friend left she made pencil marks around all the items on her shelves so she would know exactly where to put them back! Funny! My things usually end up in different spots everytime I dust! And then Beth mentioned that some men don't even put their things down after work until they have seen their wife's face to make sure they are in the right house. The house I am in now doesn't leave a lot of moving options. That is very disappointing to someone that was raised that when you clean, you move. If it isn't moved it just doesn't seem as clean. The post brought back wonderful memories..... Larry hollaring out in the middle of the night when he went downstairs to get a drink of water and not knowing the furniture had been moved. (I was a night mover) Or having Robby come down the stairs the morning after the furniture had been moved and he'd stand there on the landing and cry because I had changed things. It was quite funny. I know, I am a horrible Mother for thinking so, but it just was... He does much better with change now. So, what are you? Mover? Non-mover? Daytime? Night-time? I have changed, but probably because of the house. It doesn't get moved as much and well, I am not a night mover any more. Everyone was in bed in those days... these days there's always someone up!

You know what's funny? Lyle's the mover in our marriage! At least when it comes to furniture. Lyle's much more likely to come up with a different arrangement for us to try. Cracks me up! But he's the one with the muscles, so more power to him!

I do rearrange groupings on shelves more often, especially if I'm adding something new.

I am a mover. Was a night mover too. This house doesn't have many options either.:( Very disappointing. I :p I'm trying to do better, but this house is so little, it feels like it always needs some sort of cleaning.

hehe I loved reading this! I am such a mover! always rearanging the house while Jerry is at work. Trenton does not like it at all. :)He is upset today because the Christmas tree finally went outside. He demanded that I bring it back in. ...must run in the family...
