In going along with that I thought I would be totally legit and show you how my homeschool room looked sans cleaning. Yikes, it's embarrassing and part of my feels crazy showing you this.
My friend Heather came over the other day and our house was trashed. I mean, horrid, horrid trashed!! But I bit the bullet and had her over without cleaning anything. Part of me was mortified. The other part just tried to laugh it off and explain this is what our life is really like. She laughed with me and said it made her feel better about her house and made her think that maybe I'm not as perfect as I seem. I was shocked...me? perfect! Ha!
But apparently I somehow exude that in areas of my life and I don't want to seem that way at all. I don't want to make other Mama's feel bad about themselves by how I run our home.
So anyway, there's a little background in deciding to show you what is really going on around here...
This may be the saddest part of all...my desk. Skewed lampshades and empty glasses around pretty much sums it up.
So this is the long and short of the horrid looking room. I figured that if I showed you this room 1) you would see if you ever did think I was perfect that you are wrong :) and 2) this can serve as a sort of incentive for getting it in tip top shape. :) After I took the pictures we got to cleaning and it is already looking better even.
I'll be sure to post the after pictures so you can see what it looks like for real. And if I can ever figure it out I will try to make a video tour of our classroom to show you around a bit...I'd love to show you how I store things and what I have. I get so many questions about stuff like that so I'll try to figure it out :)
