Ready for school to start


My kids are back to school is on August 12.
I have a thought that I am not ready, which is making me feel anxious. I keep circling through my model and realizing that I keep looking at the actions to change my feeling, not my thought. I have planned the things that I need to do on my calendar, but because they are in the future, I keep thinking if I did them now, I would feel better.

I would appreciate some support cleaning up my models.
