The evolution of moving furniture

There is an armoire in my living room.


The armoire in my living room is IN my living room because there is no room in my bedroom.

There is a bookshelf (AKA “Dumping Grounds of the Gods”) that has to move from my bedroom to the living room.


The bookshelf is six feet wide.

So, the Laz-e-Boy monstrosity of manhood that Peter bought for himself when he had the bachelor pad has to go.


The chair eats the living room.


Once the chair moves….the couch can move to make room for the bookshelf…therefore making room for the armoire.


That sits in my living room.

The chair got moved this weekend (to the garage where my husband can still visit)…thank you, dear friends, that were forced to move my furniture while on your summer vacation.


Now the couches can move around to accommodate the bookshelf, which leaves all the space needed to move the armoire.


That sits in my living room.

Even though the chair has a lovely new space in the garage.

Yet, the armoire? Still sits in the living room.

So. I’m at the point where I’m not sure whether to laugh and wonder how long we’ll just live around the armoire or to start taking bets on how long it will take us to finally move it.

BTW?  If I ignore the still-unopened moving boxes, they’ll go away, right?

*head-desking*  <—which means to bang your head on your desk. There. You learned something new today.  I like to feel like I didn’t just whine through the whole post and left you with something of value.

Also?  Let me share more pointlessness over at Aiming Low today.  I like to stay with a theme.

    Sooner or later, Google will find all new spam methods.
    20 percent of customers have the potential to spend five times as much
    as they do currently A relatively small amount of marketing
    effort creates the majority of output. And then on March 20,
    the world’s largest paid private blog network – BMR – announced that its vast network had been almost
    entirely de-indexed by Google, causing chaos in the internet marketing industries.

    I have a bed in my office. The desk and bookcase need to move out of the office into the basement, then the bed can go in the right place in the room. But first, there is a table filled with miscellaneous junk and tools that has to go out to the garage. Then the bookcase and desk can go into the basement and the bed can go in the right place in the room.

    *I* moved the living room furniture around today…hopefully it will spark some movement of the bookshelf on his part. I can hope, right?

    This sounds like me. Except in my house it's my husband's mail. A month of it. On the kitchen counter. Ugh.

    We moved our dining table to the garage for Carter's birthday party on JULY 10. It's now AUGUST 12. And it's still in the garage. I have to park outside. And we have no dining table in the house so that just tells you how many family dinners we eat together. heh.

    My theory is that unpacked boxes eventually unpack themselves or become invisible. Still waiting on one of the two to happen, two and a half years after our move.

    I've had a dead TV sitting in my main hallway for 6 months. I hear ya, sister.

    this is why I got rid of 95% of my belongings when we moved to Atl….I don't want to have to unpack it EVER or find homes for things.

    Hint: If you can get a friend to help you drag it to blog the view of the TV, it will disappear so damn fast you'll think you were robbed.

    Ok.. This is too much of the deja vu for me.. I have similar armoire that now stands in my son's bedroom that collect toys that nobody plays with. A La-Z-Boy chair that we bought out of sleep deprivation after brought baby home the first week that sits in a corner in my bedroom. Oh.. And I have 3 years old unpacked boxes of baby toys in my basement. My kids are in elementary school now. :)

    I still have unpacked moving boxes and I moved in March. I'm still waiting for the unpacking Fairy to come and do some work, she still hasn't arrived.
