Summer 2011 is quickly coming to a close, and we are not ready for it to be over. As we are getting ready for back to school, we wanted to know “What are you doing?”  Most moms did their back to school clothes shopping, new lunchboxes, new backpack and shoes, along with massive school supplies in early August.  When did RockIt Mom get those chores done? Still waiting for the time to do it!  We wanted to get the most of our vacation as we could, so that required ignoring the shopping.  Tonight, we were out of milk and lunchbox food, so that required grocery shopping at 9pm, the night before school!

How are those stress levels going so far?  Handling it well. I will be honest, the stress has really gotten to me not once but twice to the point my body is reacting.  Remember, it is the “most wonderful time of the year”, not the most miserable.  Try to keep it all in perspective. And it is OK to say “No” to some invitations or requests or donation pleas.  It is hard, but work on it.  It is definitely a work in progress. 

So this week, some quick tips for that crazy shopping and keeping the stress low.  My personal favorite:  amazon.com.  They have everything, free shipping, percentage back to your elementary school and excellent customer service.  I tried going out to the stores and after an hour, I ran ran ran home and got online!
