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?
