I CAN'T DO ONE MORE THING !

 
I CAN’T DO ONE MORE THING!
By
Linda M. Penn
 
             The supplies have been bought, clothes and shoes sorted through (Susie and Johnny grew that much over the summer?), changing routines and schedules have been discussed with the family, etc.  Maybe, just maybe, everything is under control for school year 2014-15.  Then…
 
            The car’s air conditioner breaks, the babysitter quits, Susie and Johnny both need more school supplies, Susie’s dance classes resume, Johnny’s karate classes resume, the school asks for math and reading tutors, the P.T.A. needs helpers for the Fall Festival, the teachers need field trip chaperones and someone for the ever-pleasant job of Room Parent, your boss schedules an early morning meeting - for tomorrow.  Enough is enough!  “I can’t do one more thing!” you say?  (If you are a teacher and a parent of school-age children, you get that double load of stress!) 
 
            Here are some ideas for parents or teachers to help you through this time of the year:
 
1)     Be ready each day to deal with school communications.  Have three folders, a highlighter, and a calendar in a handy place.
 
Folder A –for info that is essential to keep, with the most important info highlighted.  Record important dates and times on your calendar.
 
Folder B – for info you could possibly need in the future.
 
Folder C – for info you think you will never need the rest of the school year.  Of course, you could just toss this material, but I always liked to keep everything for those “you just never know when you might need it” times during the school year.
 
If you get a great deal of communication via email, sort through them daily and put into the appropriate folders on your computer.
 
            2)  Plan ahead for those times when you come home and you are overloaded,       
                 anxious, sick, tired, hungry, angry, etc. and you are saying to yourself, “I 
                 can’t do one more thing!”
 
                 Try to recognize your symptoms BEFORE you hit the door and take action:
                       
A)   Count to 10, breathe, repeat as needed.
,
B)   Eat – have a granola bar handy at all times and a bottle of water.
 
C)   Exercise your hands, fingers, shoulders, the foot of the leg that is NOT on your car pedal.
 
D)   Think of your favorite relaxing place – beach, mountains, your bathtub (caution – don’t close your eyes if you are driving).
 
E)    Pray.
 
F)    Change your work outfit to a loose-fitting, comfy outfit as soon as you can.
 
3)     Sometime during the evening, lead the family members to share something positive about their day and name something for which they are thankful.   That includes YOU!
 
Here is wishing you and your family a fantastic school year!
