I realize now that I didn’t hold up my end of the deal. I didn’t get back to y’all on Monday like I promised. Registration for the spring semester started on Monday morning and I’m just now surfacing from the flood of students, parents, faculty members, phone calls and paperwork. Oh Lord, the paperwork. Since most of our record keeping is now computerized, we’re supposed to be moving towards eliminating all paper copies in our offices. Obviously this idea did not come from the office I work in – I’d be afraid to know how many forests we have contained in the 1500 file cabinets that surround us.
It’s lunchtime here and I’m all by my lonesome so I’d better help the students waiting for me.
