Juice Challenge – Results!

Juice Challenge – Results!

I completed the juice challenge! 5 days of nothing but juices. Generally, it went well! I was so busy making and drinking juices that I didn’t have much time to think about hunger or food. It was difficult to drink that much juice each day.…

A Snowy Start to March

A Snowy Start to March

Is this spring?
Is this spring?

It has been a while since my last post and yes, I’m still here! There has been an overwhelming amount of activity to take care of lately: skiing lessons, more doctor appointments for the baby, keeping up with the homeschooling, preparing my children to participate in a cross-country wedding and getting the house ready for our new arrival. Sadly, my blog has seen the brunt of my neglect.

Yesterday, the Fredericksburg area was treated to a surprise 6 inch snowstorm! While we have spring in mind, the weather has other ideas. This is the first winter I can remember in Virginia where we have had snow on the ground for more than two weeks at a time.

In the next few posts, I hope to catch you up on some of our recent activities and the organizational lessons that came along with them.

Behind the scenes in March, I will be:

  • preparing our tax returns
  • doing some early spring cleaning
  • working on some home maintenance projects
  • cooking some healthy meals to freeze in advance
  • packing a bag for the hospital

What are your goals for March? Please share in the comments.

P.S. Reminder that this Sunday is Daylight Savings Time! Time to “spring forward” one hour at 2:00 a.m. Sunday and readjust all of our schedules.

A few scenes from the “snowquester” at our house. At one point, the power went out for several hours, testing our emergency preparedness capabilities. The supplies we ended up needing were: While the schools closed for 3 days this week, my poor homeschooled children can’t…

10 Snowstorm Survival Skills

This weekend the east coast of the United States was wallopped again with snow. In our area, we received 17 inches. We received more snow in the December blizzard (almost 24”) but all of the hype about “Snowmageddon” made this storm feel a little worse.…
