Are you tired too?

The school year just started here and I'm already exhausted. Keep in mind that only two of my three kids are in school, thus far. I don't start myself, until the 24th, and my oldest starts on the 31st. Already we've spent more time buying school supplies, looking for shoes, and reasonably priced school clothes, than I'd like to admit. And the paperwork, oh my god! Is this what people go through when they want to join the Secret Service? The only thing I didn't send back was DNA!

Regardless, the first day has come and gone for the younger girls and they're settling into their new classes, new teachers, and old and new friends. But when did school become so overwhelming? My 16-year-old is already stressed out because of the work she's getting from two very demanding schools, and she hasn't even made it through the first week. There's a lesson she needs to learn early; worrying never solved any problem. It only magnifies the problem and makes it seem insurmountable. I hope she learns this lesson before she hits her twenties and the ulcer is irreversible.

I just took a look at your page, too. I've never seen bar code art before. What a great and interesting site. I'll visit again.

We are starting school soon too. I have been running around like crazy trying to pull everything together too. I still have a few school supplies to buy that I just couldn't find the last time I was at the store. I have 2 going to school this year and then one in preschool a couple days a week. I'm so nervous! :)

My two younger girls are back in the swing; school and afterschool activities. By October, I'm looking forward to Christmas and a break from the routine. Of course, living in New Orleans, we're all just holding our collective breaths for the first evacuation.
