I guess my new bedroom set-up was the final impetus for me to start the blog that has been going on in my head for months. The funny things that happen under my roof, and in the world that I share with you all. The funny things that I replay while I lay in bed at night. Like this past weekend for instance:  

Last Sunday was a rare day, rare in that I had a blessed 3 hours of time in which I was not scheduled to do anything for anyone. My husband had no plans for us and my 11 year old daughter had a get together to attend. I dropped her off and found myself driving aimlessly through my neighborhood thinking of the many many things I could do in 3 whole hours! I ended up in Costco which took up 1 of those hours, and spent another hour at the mall (ok so I have established that I have no life). Then I went home. I walked into the house only to find that my dear husband had taken it upon himself to surprise me and re-decorate our bedroom. By redecorate, I mean he moved furniture around....way around.  

We had acquired 2 lovely chairs recently that we decided to put in the bedroom, but since we were not sure how to arrange the room, I thought we were going to wait....apparently not so. My bedroom....my refuge....is now a totally dysfunctional room. There is no rhyme or reason as to how this man arranged the room. The bed is up against the wall right near the door, the night tables are east and west on the OPPOSITE sides of the room. The chairs have been placed in the room, but if you sit in one of them, your view of the tv is obstructed by the poles of the bed. My bedside lamps are no longer bedside. I was near tears when I saw the completed project, although I bit my tongue, I was thinking of all kinds of mean rotten things to say to him. I wanted to hurt him to put him out of MY misery. He saw my reaction (which was basically mute), and he kept saying this is only temporary, we can change this in a couple of weeks......who in their right mind wants to switch furniture around again in a few weeks?!!!!!  

Last night after I finished reading my book, I had to drop it on the floor.....my only other choice was to toss it across the room and hope it landed on one of the night tables.  

Have any of your significant others taken a page out of HGTV to your dismay, if so, please share, I don’t want to be alone....

    • Girrrrrrrl give him some credit at least he tried. Most men won’t even attempt to try what he tried. I myself (((applaud))) him for his efforts, grin and bear it and just do as he said move it in a few weeks or whatever, there are worse case scenarios.

    • You can’t tell me you didn’t just crack up laughing when you finished reading your book and thought about your choices.  Maybe that would have been a good way to hint that this setup is not working.  Playing toss-a-cross with your book would have surely made him laugh?  I’ve come across alot of things but I have not yet had to deal with this.

    • LOL!! I love that you had to drop the book on the floor! Hilarious!
      Sorry, I can’t say my husband has ever even attempted what your hubby did. That man knows better then to be messing with my furniture. estatic
      We had a room added to the house when we bought it, it’s just for him. In there he can re-arrange to his hearts content. But once he crosses the threshold of the back door, he enters the Ingrid zone!

    • The only thing that kept me from reaming this man is that I know he did it for me. He really, really thought he was pleasantly surprising me.  I don’t have the heart to tell him how stupid this set-up is, so yes Neicy, I will grin and bear it, but I don’t know for how long........
