I have found, at least in my case, that I am the one who has to deal with all the back to school issues. (My sweet mama takes my kids clothes shopping. I provide the money, she does the shopping part). I have to deal with everything else connected to it. But last night, I didn't. I told my DH, the boys have to be at school at 6:00 pm to get their schedules and meet their teachers. I said I wasn't going. And I didn't. So, don't bother mailing out that mother of the year award.
It stresses me out to be in a crowd of people. Especially pushy and sweaty people with only one thing on their mind, getting out of that place. And last year when this event went on, it nearly did me in. The older I get, the worse this gets.
I stayed home while he went with the boys and I didn't miss anything. Except a panic attack.
And then, just before I was dropping off to sleep. I was just on the cusp of lala land, he had to bring up the fact that one of the boys schedules is not right. ACK!!!!!!! Dang it all and back. My eyes flew open and instantly I was wide awake. Worrying that one of my babies was not settled securely in their schedule and that they might not be on the right track. (See I'm a little OCD about stuff like that).
Anyone else find themselves worrying over stuff like that?

I am so like that too! And I thought when my kids were finally out of school I could relax. Oh, no! Now I have grandkids and I worry about them. The oldest just graduated in May and is taking online college courses through one of the area community colleges. (Don't even get me started on the fact that they let FRESHMAN do this! I think online should be resevered for those who have at least one year of college under their belts.) Anyway, he's doing his studies at my house. So now I'm stressing about him getting everything done for college. When will it end?!?!?!?!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one getting panic attacks from back to school stuff. It just seems so overwhelming...I don't remember it being that complicated when I was a kid (we won't mention I don't remember a lot of things from that long ago :) Hang on, we'll get through it!
