It made me laugh because I always tell my husband Scott those are things that mean the most to me and sometimes I have to really enforce this into my husband so he can understand me better.
I LOVE a clean house, I get grumpy when it isn't clean. I can't even enjoy an evening all alone when Scott is at school and Boston is asleep, unless I first pick up the living room.
I also love to be social. My husband laughs at me because I have these HUGE desires to be social, I crave interaction, BUT I am a very shy person. It is a huge struggle for me to go up and talk to someone. If they talk to me first, I am instantly engaged into the conversation... but so hard for me to make that first step.
As long as I can remember I was always trying to do furniture arrangements in my bedroom as a child. Now a days I still do it. Scott laughs at me because I can spend hours trying to rearrange everything and in the end it ends up right back where it started. I guess that is the problem with living in small spaces, there really is only one place for everything. But it still makes me happy to try! In fact I spend a few hours just on Sunday afternoon while Scott was at school, playing around with everything trying to see if I could find a better fit especially with a 11 month old climbing into everything. Scott called me and I told him what I was up too and he says, I like the way everything was... haha, still doesn't get that I need to at least try!
I thought I would post some pictures of my trying over the course of 4 years to change up my surroundings but like I said, couldn't do much in a small space (and a one income family since Scott was in school).
