Yesterday, I got the best news I've gotten in a very, very long while. Those of you who have known me and followed me for years or even have started recently might be aware of my long battle with the courts in order to get on disability for my lupus and fibro, both of which keep me from working.

I know they do because while this case was underway, I even tried to hold down a job and ended up catching every little bug that came through the office and got pink eye three times. There's nothing quite like having a compromised immune system.

So, yesterday, when a letter showed up on my porch I was almost afraid to open it. In fact, the first thing I saw when I opened the letter was the appeal information and I was almost crushed right there. Then I looked up a bit and saw Notice of Decision - Fully Favorable. I called my lawyer's office and they confirmed they had gotten the letter too and it meant what I thought it did. My social security had been approved by the Judge. My years long legal battle with the government in having to "prove" that I'm sick is over!

And not just that, the decision states my disability started back in 2009 - I was told to expect that at most it would only go back a year or so. For the judge to reach it back that far is almost totally unheard of. This means once they figure out how much I'm getting a month, my back payments will go back to November 2009.

There's some amazing legal take down of the State's "experts" in the judge's decision. The take down was a thing of beauty, but I'm not going to transcribe the letter here.

With this off my shoulders I should hopefully be around more. Not having to stress out about my court case is... I feel a bit better already. Not suddenly and magically healthy, obviously. I hurt like hell today. But mentally in a bit better place!


Chuck and I did some math last night and before the lawyers fees, if the 880 I was originally quoted still stands, we're looking somewhere around 36000. I can't even.

HR, bending the rules they normally run by, has agreed to change my work schedule. It will be a cut in hours, but on the flip side, I will actually be able to GET TO WORK.

The new schedule is 10-5, Monday through Friday with a thirty minute break, starting tomorrow.

Sometimes it's nice being the best at going over legalese. This should help me not only get back on my feet money wise, but get my grove back as per other things like RP, writing and the like. It's hard to feel inspired to do much of anything when you're at home all the time.

But anyway, yay!

Now I just have to steel myself to put up with work!Will's bullshit tomorrow. Not really looking forward tot hat.

Check out some of these pictures!

Something huge happened last night. I'm still buzzing. Mom and I talked about getting a bottle of Champagne last night, but we weren't able too. Hopefully next week when we go out to toast and celebrate we'll be able to toast to Al Franken too.

Seven hundred votes are what are being recounted here. Never ever tell me that you don't think your vote can make a difference, because you know what?

It can.

Still buzzing! The election is even over shadowing some of the bad stuff that has happened today.

~Yes We Can!!~

Change is here, people! Isn't it just... amazing?!

Well, I got the comics of Dad's. There's not nearly as much here as I remember, but over the years things have likely been thrown out or destroyed beyond repair. I indexed them with Chuck, and not all of them are Marvel... Funny as Dad was only big on a few DC characters and you can see it in what little of his collection survived. It's mostly Superman with one Green Lantern and a couple of Lois Lane and Superman & Batman Comics thrown in. Nearly all his Avengers, Thor, Silver Surfer and Hulk are gone. T____T

This makes me sad, as I grew up reading these and was looking forward to the six big boxes I used to go through, not the piddly little bag I got.

But the bag I got was still pretty spiffy.

Here's the list! They aren't in the best of condition, so I don't know if I'll be able to scan any... One has to remember these survived purges by my Grandmother, my Mom and my Step Mom, not to mention friends who would raid and not return.
