All-in-all, the Crazy Ass Transfer Line Saga went really well. Once the line started moving, I was in and out pretty quickly. I really have to credit the Austin ISD employees. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful, and they even had a lady pushing a cart full of clipboards, pens and forms amongst the line goers, in case someone didn’t have a transfer form or needed a new one.
The only hiccup was waiting for my husband to come pick me up (I hitched a ride out there this morning). For some reason, only sensible to someone who has woken up at 4:30 am, I took with me both mobile phones and the keys to the car with both car seats. So there was some frantic drawer digging by my husband to find the spare key so he could drag the kids out to fetch me. But it all worked out just fine.
Well, we’ll learn sometime between May and August how well it worked out.
Also, I gave an interview with one of the local news channels even though I swore I would run from all cameras. Dorky hat lady on TV? That would be me.
