Well, I gave in. I started reading everyone's blogs again, although I am still not caught up on my Bible reading. I found lots to interest me, but the most interesting (and sad) thing about getting back to reading blogs-- aside from the fact that I broke a commitment*-- is how inferior I feel as a homeschooler after reading all the cool things everyone else is doing.
No matter that we are doing cool things too.
No matter that we are doing just what we need to do at this time.
No matter that NO ONE is doing it all.
Oh, that horrid, achievement-oriented mindset. I despise the thing. When will it go away? I sometimes think I have gotten rid of it, but it comes back when I am not looking.
Off to pray for a more humble, faithful way of thinking.
*(I haven't given up the commitment of reading the Bible in a year. I just really wanted to take a peek at what everyone was up to.)
