Hopefully not a missed opportunity

I got an email today from an assistant principal to interview for a teaching position at her school tomorrow at 1 pm. Problem is, I can't make it tomorrow. We haven't moved yet (not planning on moving until this weekend). Anyway, I emailed her back saying.....

Yes, I am interested in finding out more about the position you have open at your school and would love to setup an interview. However, I will not be able to make it tomorrow. My husband and I are in the process of moving and are not going to be in the Austin area until this weekend. Could we possibly schedule the interview for next week? If not, I can make arrangements to be there Thursday.

She emailed me back and said.....

Thank you for getting back to me. I will be conducting interviews tomorrow. If I have not made a decision by the end of these interviews, I will call you to schedule an interview for Thursday.

I browsed through the school's website, and it looks like they may have about 6 positions open. I'm not sure how many have already been filled. Did I mention it is within one of the top school districts in the area?

Should I start getting ready just in case? And how long should I wait to hear from her? It's about a 10 hour drive from where I'm at now, and I'll have to take one of our dogs with me.

I would have offered to do a phone interview.

I didn't think about that at the time, but probably not a good idea anyway. I only have use of my cellphone and the reception here is awful.

If she does get back with me, I may mention it and try to find a place where I can get a good signal.

I would expect a phone call on Wed and be ready for an interview on Thur.

Are you planning to be in Austin on Thurs.?

I decided to email her back to see about a phone interview. Hopefully it's not too late. I don't know why I didn't think of that before.

I was not originally planning on being in Austin until Friday night, but I will be there Thursday if she requests.
