Spring Cleaning

Jesus and I rearranged the furniture in our apartment yesterday. ALL of furniture - no room was left unaffected by our whirlwind of de-cluttering and moving around and adjusting and trying new things. Even the bathroom got the addition of our shopping cart as a rolling laundry basket. Our microwave has a new address. There's more furniture in our bedroom and less in the living room.

I know I'm not alone in feeling refreshed after a good rearranging, but I can't say it enough: if you're feeling weird or stuck or in need of something to put some pep in your step after daylight savings steals an hour from your weekend...move some stuff around. The physical act of moving furniture and thinking through a room's atmosphere also clears the cobwebs in your brain. It makes you look at things differently and revitalizes areas that have been lacking (like the dead space by our coat rack, which is now a blank wall).

Even if you don't agree, it's the best way to make sure every corner of the house gets swept at least every few months. :)
