Hello to everyone who's been wondering about my appeal: The appeal is going to take longer than the hour allotted, so it will be continued on May 19.
Bad: I will have no real income for another month.
Good: My former employer is done with testimony, and they have nothing. On May 19 I get to tell my story, calmly and truthfully.
So I picture myself on an airplane, on a journey. My plane is circling my final destination and is in a holding pattern, but not an uncertain "weather-related" holding pattern; rather, a holding pattern that is the result of several other planes that need to land before my plane can. My plane will land safely at my destination, just later than I would have hoped.
In the meantime, enjoy this nice shot of some yarn I spun the other night that is now in the shop:
