The unpacking is going so slowly – so slowly in fact, that I’m bored to death with the subject. I started out with the best of intentions to unpack and display everything beautifully. I’m now at the point of setting fire to the remainder of the unpacked boxes.
Way back in 2012, when we knew that we were moving I immediately googled the schools in the area and found out that I could register ONLINE. “How fabulous”, I thought, “a school district living firmly in the future”.
We arrived at school today at 9AM – I was so glad for the first day of school, I almost skipped to the office. However, paper shuffling and technical bureaucracy greeted me promptly.
#1 – Despite the fact, that there had been a thank you for submitting the online forms email and then a personal welcome email from the school office administrator, no one had any idea that we were coming.
#2 – After finding the emails as PROOF that yes indeed we had registered – We were informed that those online forms were “old” and the “government won’t allow us to accept these documents”. We dutifully completed the reams of paperwork by HAND.
#3 – Since they weren’t prepared for us, we were requested to go home and come back tomorrow. I’ve never seen my girl move so fast in my life. She hightailed it out of the office before anyone had a chance to reconsider that particular course of action.
Can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s hijinks entails.
