rude awakening, or here we go again

This morning we were awakened by a phone call--no, let me be honest, we were already awake, and it was 10:30 (one or both of us may occasionally go back to sleep after the kids get on the bus, esp. if we have been up late working the night before).

Anyway, the call was from the Office of Pupil Transportation, informing us that Stella's bus schedule/route was changing YET AGAIN. After a week and a half of a more human schedule (picked up at 7:45 a.m., dropped off at 4 p.m.), she is going back to a 6:30 a.m. pick up, the 1st of 9 kids. ???????????????

The woman on the phone could not even tell Bob the bus company, let alone the driver.

Needless to say, it felt as if we were back to the drawing board. I called to check on the medical form we submitted last week and had to leave voicemails. We finally got a response: the forms are being reviewed by their "staff pediatrician," and if our pediatrician's recommendation is approved, the information will be put in her file.

In the meantime, we have no idea who will be picking our daughter up and driving her around starting Thursday (or was it Wednesday? I am really mixed up at this point).

Hello Art McFarland? The story continues...

Meanwhile, Stella Bella is here next to me as I type on the bed, showing no signs of going to sleep. She's awfully darn cute, though!
