I have to admit I really enjoy watching HGTV, and home flipping programs. I get jealous of spacious homes, and gorgeous bathrooms. Our family of 5 is sharing a 3 bedroom house with one bathroom. Our 3 bedrooms are tiny. Our “master” bedroom is honestly the size of a closet in most of the homes featured on the programs I watch. 😞
My yard however is quite large and over the years we have been working on the landscaping. Stepping outside after watching some HGTV this morning reminds me that I have a lot to appreciate. 😊
Our home and yard aren’t perfect, and having small children means they won’t be any time soon. There are many things I can enjoy though. The rare moments when dishes and laundry are completely caught up on, snuggling with all my boys watching a movie (preferably with my feet up), quiet opportunities like the one I have now to write a blog with the sounds of our pond’s water feature in the background.
I don’t have to be so jealous of what I see on television. Two bathrooms would be AMAZING, but I can live with one. (At least until the babies are out of diapers. 😉)
