I think most people move into a house and the rooms are easily labeled. This is the living room, this is the kitchen, this is the bedroom. My house is not quite like that. I am not sure if it is because I have so many rooms, that I feel like I need to keep moving things around, or if it is because I am not good with keeping things as is.
When I was growing up I constantly moved my bedroom around. Always trying to find the "right" way to have the room set up. Inevitably, each time I would do this, I would find the "perfect" way, and then a month later I was at it again. In college I did the same thing, I think partly because I moved just about every semester into a different room/apartment.
Now I am in a house. A large house that seems a tad intimidating since it is still in the process of being "fixed up," and probably will be for the next 10 years. We have 3-4 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a dining room, an eat in kitchen. It seems like too much. So I improvise and start moving things around. But, I can't seem to get the labels right. We have the craft room, which is working out great, although I could definitely use shelves, this is one of the bedrooms of course. Downstairs I have a living room that we are using as a living room now, but I think I want to move it into the toy/school room. But then where do I put the toys? Where they are now, they are at least out of the way...for the most part.
See the stress I have? Having a big house does not make for an easier life I swear. It isn't even the amount of space I have, it is the amount of stuff that needs to be crammed into every corner and have its place. I sometimes wonder if the fact that I have such a big house is a reason I have so much stress. Trying to keep the beast clean is next to impossible for me, and I hate to constantly put stuff away.
I saw that Matt and Sara are moving into a camper again. They seem to know what they are doing as far as living small. I always want to take that leap, but then don't for whatever reason, be it fear or having my relatives tell me once again how crazy I am :-) It is always something at the back of my mind though.
Tell me, do you rearrange furniture as much as I do? Why do you do this/not do this? Would love to know if I am the only whack job out there that wants constant change?
