I am down to the last panicky hours of prep time, between work, two seperate doctors appointments in two seperate cities, plus packing and errands before we can go....
I may arrive with every pair of underwear I own dirty. (Mom, I won't do laundry at your house, I can wait, I promise.)
We managed to submit the Spanish taxes today, thanks enormously to a friend who helped to fill them out, then I completely blew my cool.
When we got home there were three seperate registered letters for the girls and I informing us that we are required to go to the town hall every two years with all of our papers so they can check up on us. Like we are freaking criminals or something.
I am offended.
I asked some co-workers if they had to do this in the US...NO.
I have all my papers, I am legally allowed to be here, but every two years, I need to show up.
I am pissed.
Especially as I need to bring in the originals of the documents, and -you guessed it-photocopies of all the documents.
I may slip a photocopy of my *ss in with it, and that same document about wasting paper, the one that confused the school secretary.
I am really angry about this one. I didn't go today, I would have given them a very unpleasant piece of my mind. I can feel my blood pressure rising as I think about it.
