A Little Stir Crazy
Kevin was in Israel for a lot of days.
And some of those days felt much longer than others.
And those many days were also followed by many nights.
I might have gotten a little stir crazy while he was gone.
I might have rearranged the living room furniture in at least twelve various configurations, none of which seemed to please anyone but me.
I might have painted the kitchen cabinets with chalkboard paint and drawn on all the doors with colored chalk.
I might have cleaned out the kids' closets on multiple evenings.
I might have reorganized Kevin's plethora of t-shirts into tidy stacks according to style, color and usage.
I might have moved all of our family's unnecessarily extensive DVD collection from one storage cabinet to another, ordering the DVDs into categories that amused me - such as All Films That Feature Musical Instruction To Young Children, thus causing School of Rock and Sound of Music to dwell side by side in perfect harmony.
I might have given our bedroom a major overhaul, adding risers under our bed and picking up some new red curtains and moving bookshelves that were most certainly too heavy to lift.
I might have bought a huge framed painting of two lions hanging out at local store for a pittance compared to the cost of purchasing new canvas and framing my own artwork. And since I don't want a huge picture of two lions hanging out, I may have just painted right over that crazy scene to do my own art project.
And I might have found these cool windows in the barn and thought that they made a cute mock headboard.
But since Kevin has been home, our evenings seldom involve home projects such as these and the furniture has stayed in its proper place.
