It’s been nagging me a bit.
In quiet, unassuming ways.
A little unsettledness here, a little awkwardness there.
A little stubbing my toe on the bed frame, a little spilling my coffee on the microscopic nightstand…
Small things that were communicating to me that the layout of the bedroom simply wasn’t right.
When we carved the space out of the bedroom for the home office, we decided on an unusual layout where the bed was angled in a corner. I believe this was because a gypsy told me that tragedy would befall my family if I neglected to place the comfy reading chair by the sliding glass door. I was emotionally locked in a place where the comfy reading chair had to sit by the sliding glass door. I was not to be swayed. There was scary gypsy lady and everything.
This made the rest of the room a little awkward to manage, and so the bed ended up angled in a corner.
We told ourselves it was funky and contemporary.
But really, it was just weird and made me feel like I was sleeping facing the wrong direction. All. The. Time.
So someone somewhere gave the gypsy lady a Valium because in recent days the OCD-driven compulsion for the chair to live by the window slipped away.
And many possibilities opened up to me.
(This is only moderately true – there is a cable jack that dictates the location of the TV, a somewhat random closet, and a sliding glass door to work around.)
But still. Possibilities. Open. At least one or two of them.
So Thursday night…chaos ensued.
There are not going to be any more pictures of me in this post because the cute, comfy blouse apparently makes me look 14 months pregnant in photos.
I actually kinda like that last one.
This is more craziness where I am trying to figure out how high the lamp on the right needs to be to line up with the lamp on the left. I believe at this points I needed one more “Martha Stewart Living” and my family was thinking I needed one more Prozac.
So once the art gets rearranged and hung, and all is lit by daylight, I’ll take more pictures.
But I so fenged the shui out of this room.
