It's a disease

I changed my blog again. (in case you can't tell)
It's an illness.

I rearrange the furniture in my house at least one room a month. I am trying to find the best fit, the best flow.

My husband gave up and accepted this long ago.

And recently he listened to an NP article that he feels helped him understand it a bit more.

He claims that it is one way for me to be artistic. It is my artistic expression coming out and that is one way I allow myself artistic freedom.

I like that so much better than it's because I am a little neurotic and I grew up in a home that was ever changing. Literally changing.

We moved a lot.

My kids have known one home. They were both born there and in living in this home for six years I can claim with a degree of confidence that this is the longest I have ever lived in a home.

And I want to move.

So I move the furniture. And the room becomes new and different. And, I hope, more functional.

I would love to hear that I am not the only freak out there.

What are your odd behaviors and how do you explain them to yourself?

I could go on and on about my bizarre behaviors, but instead will just comment that I move my furniture around ALL the time. And paint, but I guess you know that.

I'm an air force brat and we moved all over the place. I get the "6 year itch" as well. We've been in our house for exactly 6 years and I WANT TO MOVE!!!

6 years is my limit. I may have to do some furniture re-arrangement as well. It has been about 8 months since I last re-arranged.
