Move it Around Thursday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


We’ve been working in the Living Room this week (or your Family Room or Den). Today, let’s move the furniture around and detail clean underneath the furniture. Maybe it’s time to try a new room arrangement. Please be care and enlist help with this project. Bonus points to anyone who finds a stray Christmas decoration under a piece of furniture. My grandmother used to love to move her furniture around. She did this regularly, and we have some funny stories from her doing this. When my grandfather was in the military, she would move furniture while he was gone for the day. If he came in after dark, he learned to turn on a light because the furniture often was not where it was when he left that morning. The best story was when they were in military apartments and a larger apartment came open during the day. My grandmother got permission for the move, and she executed a move during the day with 2 small children. When my grandfather came off his shift, a whole new family was living in the apartment he left that morning. Fortunately, he had a good sense of humor about that!
