So far so good

Well so far I am making progress.

I have managed to call Kyle’s school counselor. Left a detailed voice message. Hopefully, she will call back soon.

I was worried that she might call back when I got on the phone with AT&T and found out that my hold time was TEN MINUTES! What?!. Well it is the official release date of the new iPhone 5. I should not be surprised. I am glad that I pre-ordered ours on Tuesday. Ours will come shipped directly to our door, thank you very much. Fortunately, the counselor did not call back while I was on the phone with AT&T.

My phone call with AT&T went fine for the most part. It was lengthy. Evidently the process to unlock an old iPhone is not as quick as one might expect. I was warned in the store that it was not a quick process and it would take a couple of weeks for it to take affect. What they did not warn me off is that first they would have to verify that I was eligible to have my phone unlocked. I am only eligible if I fulfilled my contract obligations with AT&T. Fortunately, this was not a problem as my two year contract is up officially in December and I was eligible for an upgrade. When your eligible for an upgrade your contract is considered fulfilled if you upgrade. What they told me in the store (and this is hearsay) is that you technically own your equipment after six months under contract. Second, after they have verified your eligibility to unlock the phone, Apple has to approve the unlocking of the phone. Hello?!. Fortunately, this is not a problem either because Apple and I are on good standing with each other. We like each other just fine. I do nothing that would get me on bad terms with Apple. Finally, now that Apple has approved my ability to unlock my phone, Apple will contact me with my unlock code. Fantastic! This can take up to two weeks. Awesome! So now we wait. Since my new phone may not be here for upwards of three to four weeks according to the lady on the phone, this should be ample time for my unlock code to arrive to me safely before I need to hand over my phone to its new owner.

So far things were going just fine. Then I sat down to fill out the GT forms. Oh my goodness. You would have thought I knew nothing about my children. Nothing I tell you! What are they asking me these questions for? Seriously? Just give my kid the flipping test and see if they pass them already. No seriously, these questions on this survey are like asking me if the child is really mine. I am not kidding, I feel like I do not know my own children these questions are that difficult to answer. In what regard do you want me to answer these questions? I would have problems even answering them for Andrew and he is the child that is already certified as GT. The part that gets me is that if I answer with six or more of a certain rating I have to start giving examples. I do not have specific examples. That is just how they are. That is who they are. That is what makes them who they are. They do this stuff every flipping day. It is them. You want me to isolate an example that sums up six of these questions and fit it on one line that is six inches long? You have got to be kidding me. Oh boy. Guess these will have to wait until their father returns and we fill them out together because I have read through all of these questions at least three times and I can only honestly answer a handful of them. Who would have thought it would be this hard? I am not the one being tested for GT.
