Mama (et al): here are the results of my Thursday afternoon c'mon-Rosie-let's-rearrange-the-furniture-again time. We had a good time. Bookshelf moved upstairs, end table and mattress moved downstairs, books carried upstairs. Good for a hot afternoon with the a/c on. It's nothing particularly magnificent, but it works a lot better. I can get at the books on my shelf (a great concept), and they're even divided into general categories and alphabetized. The couch is less crowded, which does help the room be more relaxing.
