I finally got my procrastinating butt around to getting registered for classes today. Called Del, told him "I need classes!" and we started whipping out my schedule.

Riding class, 10:00 am Monday through Friday, check.

Equine Management 1:00 pm Monday and Wednesday, check.

Computer class, evening (blech) 5:30 pm Monday and Wednesday, but check.

Elective, Computerized Farm Records, 2:30 pm Monday and Wednesday, check.

Math, che.... er... wait.

"Do you want algebra or Ag math?"

"Ag math. Algebra hurts me."

"Ok, so that one will be from 11:00 to 12:15 Tuesday and.... um. Hold on."

"Wha? Just one day a week? That's odd..."

"Well no, it's supposed to be Tuesdays and Thursdays... but your riding class runs from 10:00 to 11:30 Monday through Friday, so we have a scheduling conflict."

"Well crap, is there another time?"

"No. Who was your dumbass adviser last year?"

"Um. You."

"I was afraid you'd say that."

"So what do we do?"

"Well, maybe we can work something out with Marilyn on the time conflict, maybe ride early, or something."

"Marilyn is good about things like that, so it shouldn't be a problem. If nothing else I can ride with another class on those days, maybe."

"Well, we won't be able to register you for the math class until she signs the time conflict slip, so don't let me forget to do that. My memory is about as long as my hair these days."

So, I have to talk to Marilyn and figure something out for the conflicted days... I'm sure it won't be too big a problem, if nothing else I'll ride with the freshmen those days and be her demonstrator. I don't have anything at all in the afternoons on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I'm sure we'll be able to work something out.

Meanwhile, my official schedule doesn't show the math class. But I do have an official schedule, at least.
