To my heart pounding and racing surprise, a letter from Boulder Valley School District arrived in my mailbox today. Hmm, that's strange, letters aren't going to be mailed until tomorrow, February 6th. I haven't felt this way since I mail ordered tickets for the Grateful Dead in 1992.
As I opened the envelope in slow motion, unfolded the paper, and scanned the paragraph, my heart raced even faster. Turns out we aren't even a blip on the Open Enrollment radar. We were not selected for any of our school choices this first round. Second round letters are mailed out February 28.
Yes, there are still plenty of chances. Just so happens we weren't selected first. Hopefully all those folks that were granted a space in one of their choices will move back to where they originally came from (california, texas, kansas??). Just teasing.
In the meantime, you can find me sobbing in my dinner plate tonight.
Once again, to be continued...
