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?
