No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

Talk About Clutter

"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you." - Wayne Dyer

It all began Friday night when I made the statement, "I hate this clutter and tomorrow I'm going to make changes and vacuum the carpet."

Next thing I knew, my adoring man was deconstructing my space in the corner, had me get the vacuum cleaner, vacuumed and moved furniture around. Just like that, I had a new space. Now on Saturday I have to figure out how to get rid of the clutter.

Saturday, I come out to a newly arranged living room. I was going to ignore the clutter but no, my sensibilities wouldn't let me. I already feel overwhelmed. My first task was to put away the items that had a place of their own. Okay that helped.

Kitty stuff went under the ottoman. Bailey doesn't seem to mind it being there and I am glad about that.

My chair instead of being catty-wampus in the corner is now in line with the futon. Instead of it slung back for sleeping, I have set it up to be a chair. Very strange to me but since I'm sleeping less in the living room, I might as well read and watch television sitting up.

With the chair upright, I don't need to have the ottoman up against the chair frame to elongate the chair for a bed. I can still sit comfortably with my feet on the ottoman but I kind of like my feet on the carpet.

I still need to find a place for my magazines and odds and ends. I also noticed this (Sunday) morning that my side table still looks cluttered so a second look will be taken of that.

Since I arose late, started late, I had taken care of the last pieces by noon time. Deep breath, "oh my" indeed our living room now has a whole new look and that darling man of mine likes it.

He likes it because while he is lying about on the futon, I am close by in my chair. We can still hold hands while watching TV or a DVD. For once all of the remote controls are on the arm of the futon between us. As long as a stay there, neither of us will have to go hunting for them in my man's hot spot called the coffee table.

With this arrangement, we have created room for another chair in the event we have company over. Bailey has several spaces for him to play or hide out and this makes him happy which means I'm happy.

So now, there are two rooms and one corner somewhat organized in our apartment. Not too bad for living here two and a half years.
