Luckily I have until October 15th to have it all done.
However, I called the Friday before public school started - even though Cal's school had been informed at the end of the last school year, Noah's hadn't been so I knew I'd have to let them know. Wasn't looking forward to that, I love his school, I love a lot of the teachers there, but I just started to feel that his needs weren't being met there in a lot of ways... I've already gotten into that though.
So ... I called and did the recorded answers to get the paper work sent (screwed up might I add, but whatever, I got through it) ... and then school started. We were out of the house the day it started and I got home, listened to my messages on my machine (something I just normally ignore unless I'm expecting something) and there were messages from BOTH schools stating both boys were out of school and wondering where they were. Well I had tried to call Noah's school the day before school to let them know not to expect him and I didn't get an answer and they took their machine away a few years ago ... so I called them back and talked to the secretary - told her what was going on - she was good about it.
Then I got on the phone calling Cal's school - who - remind you - were informed at the END of last school year. So...I called and a young voice answered the phone, not the normal secretary - the one that had called me earlier. I asked for the secretary ... "she's busy right now can you call back?" ... ah... yeah... sure.... So I wait a half hour (school has already been let out, it's 3pm) ... same voice... I sorta explain the situation just incase it's a young sounding adult who works there now... and I get "she's like, in a meeting until 4" .. nice... real, nice.... So THEN ... I call back the following morning. I tell her, I informed the school at the end of last year that we were doing this. And I get "have you done the paper work?" ... I said "I'm in the process of doing it" ... insert attitude "WHERE in the PROCESS are you?"
It frustrated me.
So today I finally got the paper work... YAY!!!
