"PAY" attention in school

Does anyone else out there feel overwhelmed when school starts?? Yes, it is nice to have some time to myself and all. But from the minute they enter home after that very first day, the papers, rules, folders, fundraisers, on and on, keep coming home with them. NOW this year, I have it all times two!! Pages have litteraly been flying off of our checkbook. It is only the third week of school and our Fall fundraiser has begun and ended! Me, feeling guilty, wanting my kids to partake in the big celebration party, complete with bounce houses, if you sell a certain amount of items, had to make up the difference for both their order forms, to get them to that magic number. OOH, that was just the biggest run on sentence, sorry. Anyway. then I bought an Entertainment book, Chase needed to rent a violin for his strings group, we signed up for our Club HOPE - that I help lead, Brooke's dance is starting back up $, money for school lunches and milk, adventure club fees, AHHHHHHHH. Next, Halloween costumes, then CHRISTMAS WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!! Stop the world, I want to get off! Are any of you feeling the same way? Or is something else on your mind about the new school year starting? Do share.

Yeah, I feel like I'm pretty much sucking so far as elementary school mom. I didn't even know the fundraiser began, much less ended. I passed on the Entertainment book because they went up ten bucks (30 dollars...REALLY?) and I pretty much feel like I don't know what's going on at all. So, you know...go me!
