Okay – REALLY?! The March 3 in 30 has only just begun and the first check in was yesterday. WOW.

I’ve made it pretty clear that it takes several weeks for me to develop good habits so obviously I haven’t been at this NEAR long enough to have any kind of progress to report yet.


It’s been four days. I should have at least something to show for it, right? Well. Here’s what I’ve got:

1.) We’ve been turning the tv off at 9 (or close to – a couple of times breakfast was late, my fault, and we were still eating.) After there was a lot of asking about the tv during the first couple of days, I’ve been covering the tv with an afghan the last couple of days. There are a lot less questions now.

2.) No tv and school til 3? Welllllll… this has been an off school week. No, not a week that we’re off. A week that is a little off. My MIL picked the kids up on Monday and Tuesday for the afternoon while I worked on taxes. Yesterday I schooled from bed all day. We pretty much did do school-ish things until 3, for the most part. Next week, being a more normal schedule, will help bring structure and cement to that habit, though.

3.) Regular 20-Minute Clean-Ups after each meal? Um, sorta? I think we’ve gotten at least 2 out of 3 meals each day. It’s a step closer.

So that’s about it. Unimpressive. Yet promising. What about you?

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
