My anxiety is in overdrive and I've been feeling out of sorts for a few days now. Generally, I have no clue what brings on these "spells". But I think I have an inkling this time.
This end of the school year stress has been really overwhelming. It's just that they squeeze every last event in to the final days and when you add that to the EXTRA graduation activities, well, I just start to feel like I'll never get through it all.
Another big thing going on right now: we're changing banks. Not because we disliked our old bank, but the bank that holds our mortgage offered us a much better overall package. It seemed to make sense, but there are lots of little loose ends things that need to be in place before I can say this is a done deal and start fresh with the new bank.
Not to mention, learning a new format for online bill paying, etc. I'm sure it will be fine - the new banks' ways look much easier and much more streamlined, but it's just making sure everything is covered.
You know, things like making sure places we've set up our debit cards on hold when we need to use them (adding money to our pay as you go cell phones, for example) - all that stuff needs to be changed and that's just ONE example.
On Tuesday, Buddy came home with a paper stating that the boys needed to wear nice dress slacks and a shirt with a tie. Now, I could have sent him in his uniform, but those pants are looking a bit ratty by this time of the year. So, after the Evil Twin got home, we ran out to Kmart and purchased some khaki pants. He'll wear a white button down oxford that is already in his closet, his school tie, navy socks and his dress shoes.
Then, they need to change into their class shirt (special shirts ordered by their teacher early in the year, stating that they are 2009 graduates of their school - they're very nice looking), jeans or shorts, socks and tennis shoes for their field trip to Camden Park. They also need a watch, because the teacher has them all meet up with her every hour. So, we bought Buddy an inexpensive, but cool looking, watch too.
I love being given all that heads up on things that are necessary!
And now, maybe you can see why I'm ready for summer to begin...even if I know by the end, I'll be ready to pull my hair out! LOL.
I'm taking my good camera to the graduation, so maybe I'll have some fun shots to share with you all tomorrow!
