just take it one day at a time and forget the rest. 28 days the countdown begins

in 28 days....

-i will get to blog again on a daily basis.

-i will get to sit and facebook in near silence while my herd is at school.

-i will get to go on lunch dates with friends and virtually no kids in tow.

-i will get to miss my children while they are gone learning , eventually coming home excited to tell me the delights of the day.

until then we'll continue to sleep in. go swimming and no doubt, bicker/fight.

all. day. long.

until then i will have 28 days of mini anxiety attacks about...

- what classes my kids are assigned to. hoping for teachers that will encourage and bring out the best in my little students. (yes, i'm a worrier about these things)

~school clothes shopping with no school clothes budget.

~ myself starting school again so soon after the kids go back. (the knowledge of what's to come has put a large damper on my back to school delight). sigh.

i filled out my financial aid stuff finally and i'm all registered. year two. this year i know what to expect, i admit it's a whole new kind of dread. i like school but the fast pace added to my real life and the thought of Christmas has me freaked. yeah. already i'm stressed about finals? i need to just take it one day at a time and forget the rest.


when do your kids go back?

what do you worry about?

are you equally anxiety riddled?

Connor goes back in 13 days, Taylor in 20.

I worry that they'll get good teachers, too. And I want them to have good friends in their classes. I hate it when they're in a class full of troublemakers and kids that ruin it for others, you know?

I'm not stressing about school clothes. I got Connor a couple of t-shirts on sale, and really he still has enough shorts in good condition. And Taylor, his school wears a uniform, and at the end of last school year I got 5 shirts for $50 so he should be good to go. I'm kind of over the whole buying them a complete wardrobe right before school starts. I tend to buy things as I find them on sale, so they get new clothes here and there throughout the year. Plus they're boys. They don't care as much.

I can't believe it's here already though. Seems like they just got out.

28 days!! well 27 now i guess.
i hear you on the no school clothes budget. blah. we have no room in the budget at all, we've gone back to wondering if we will get a check each week like last summer (only worse) and daycare has been sucked into a black hole, no one has been needing me with vacations and older kids home from school. blah. not in a good mood about school.
you will love going back to school when you start. you'll dread it at first, then get into the swing of it.
i can't wait for Barro's lunch dates myself =)

i have anxiety about lots of other stuff. and i worry. about things i can control and about things i can't. i suppose that never goes away?

as for school, i may be joining you in the winter... i'm hoping to take human anatomy and human physiology. crazy. but i always loved school.

28 days... you can do it!!

School starts Aug. 11th around here. My oldest is starting 5th grade,my youngest is starting Kindergarten. I'm stressing over teachers because I know that one of the kindergarten teachers sucks a**. I'm going to be that mom that requests for my son to not have a teacher because of her reputation. But I also don't want a teacher to kill my son's love of life. YIKES! Deep, crazy thoughts...
