I changed it around so now it looks like this
Sorry, I don't have before pictures, you'll just have to trust me that it looks better. See the Springy pitcher and greenery?
In the process I found alot of this:
Eww. Maybe the other corner isn't as bad.
So, I did some Spring cleaning in the process. As you can see, it really needed it. After I cleaned and re-arranged the living room, I cleaned the family room. I even cleaned and vacuumed the couch, which at any given time has at least three asses and 4 dogs on it. So it was pretty dirty. I'll spare you pictures.
Then I added some Spring color in the Dining Room
I just feel this need to put blues and greens around my house when the weather starts getting warmer.
I added some more Spring touches here
The only downside to Spring is the abundance of these:
So I weeded too.
Then I helped my daughter clean and rearrange her room. What the heck was wrong with me?? Changeivitis is like that though. It just strikes out of the blue and you feel the need to make things...different. More appealing. Less boring.
I don't think I'm over my Changeivitis. I should feel very good that I had such a productive weekend and at least part of my house has been Spring cleaned, but I don't. I want more. I think I'm going to paint the bathroom.
Then I got to thinking, do we change our surroundings because really we want to change something bigger in our lives, but maybe don't have the courage to do it? Maybe we don't even know exactly what it is that needs to change, but we know it's something.
Or maybe it's just Spring Fever.
Whatever the cause of Changevitis, changing things up - or around - in our lives is usually a good thing. Sitting in a rearranged room can change your perspective on things and bring about creative thinking. Maybe if I sit in my living room for a while I'll figure out what it is about myself that I really want to change.
Think I'll wait till after I paint the bathroom. Why waste a perfectly good case of Changeivitis?
What about y'all? Does Spring cleaning make you want to Spring clean yourself? Do you get Changeivitis and what do you do about it?
