While I am laying in bed waiting for my pain medicine to kick in, I thought I would do some blog cruising. The mistake I made was to cruise through a blog hop all about school rooms.
It made me feel bad. Jealous. And generally like a not so good homeschool mom. I know it's dumb but if you read the list of seven things about me from the post with the blog awards, you know that I am insecure.
I kept going to these different blogs and the more I saw, the more jealous and discontent I became. Some of these school rooms were unreal, ya'all. I mean seriously they looked like they came out of a magazine.
First of all they were sparkling clean. That almost never happens here. Ever. Then they had all kinds of bookshelves, tables, desks, extra things that I had never thought of until now. And now I am trying to figure out how we can renovate or buy all the things that made their rooms so wonderful.
Ugh I hate that feeling. I am usually a fairly content person. I don't need to play the "keep up with the Joneses" game and I don't really care if someone got new furniture or whatever. So why is this bothering me so much? Why do I even care what those other school rooms look like if ours is working well for us?
I don't know.
But I do know that I am not going to be cruising that blog hop any longer and I am going to focus on the blessing of being able to home school at all. At least we have a room that we can use as a school room, right? Of course right!
