Confessions of a Room Schizo

It's official. I have a sickness. If you've read this blog for any length of time, you know I like to rearrange. Not just the furniture within a room, but rearranging whole rooms for whole rooms. The girls have moved back and forth several times between the two rooms in the hallway.....the homeschool room hasn't been the same for two years in a row ever....and if I could figure out how to rearrange the bathroom I promise you it would have already been done.

THIS TIME though....I have a really good idea. This time it's super important and absolutely imperative that I make this switch.

You know our homeschool room?
It's the first room on the right as you walk in our front door.

And the girls' playroom that WAS going to be their bedroom that used to be Little Bit's room?

It's a straight shot down the hallway from our bedroom.


Well, the homeschool room is now going to be the playroom and the playroom is now going to be the homeschool room.

I've decided that the reason the playroom stays so crapped up all the time is because it is just too big. By moving the toys to a smaller room (and therefore downsizing the toys too), I'm hoping to make it less overwhelming for the girls to pick up. Besides, they don't need all that space anyway.

That will give us a much larger room for homeschooling so I can include an art area and they won't have to junk up the homeschool room going in there to draw etc. when school is over each day.

The best laid plans......

The girls are attending VBS this week so that sounds like the perfect time to get started, don't you think?

Look for updates this week!


  1. Brenda, Sounds like a great idea to me! And while I only have a touch of this 'illness,' my oldest dd (only 10) has a severe case of it. We like to say that moving furniture is her love language! Whatever keeps you're gears going : ) Can't wait to see your final pics.

  2. Oh Melissa! I didn't know rearranging could be a love language!!! It's mine and it's definately my younger daughter's! :)

  3. Goodness, I never knew I was ill. Thank you for the free diagnosis, and happy rearranging. Yes, this is the perfect week!

  4. Ooohh...I love moving furniture! So, the toys are replacing school things, but the table stays? Just trying to get a visual. (You know how it is.) Will look forward to pictures!

  5. I must be cured, because I used to be like this when I was a child, through college and all the way until I was married. However, I haven't done it in awhile.... Hmmm. I'm starting to itch. :)

    Can't wait to see the pictures!

  6. I have it. The illness. Matt started nailing furniture to the walls. Not kidding. I do whole rooms too. Or did. My oldest just asked the other day if we could rearrange. See, they miss it, maybe I should try to do something about that...


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
