Man, I just noticed it’s been 5 days since I’ve been here. Sheesh… I’m quite the slacker these days!
I continue to live in this foggy haze… I’m ready for a good wind to come blow out the fog. It’s getting pretty old. I have a moments of clarity but mostly just in this dull, listless state of mind. I don’t like it at all.
What have I been doing for the past 5 days? Let’s see… Saturday I took pictures of 2 different families for their Christmas cards. I had a good time and they both seem to like the pictures. Win-Win. Sunday was spent editing pictures and applying the requested effects to the photos. I finished one set Sunday and got it delivered. I also have a request for photos to be given as Christmas gifts at a party next week… I met with the gift giver Sunday evening so she could pick out which photos she wants.
Here are the galleries if you are interested in looking….

I slept away ½ of Monday and planned to finish editing the photos for the 2nd family… but I made the mistake of checking the mail first. The blasted Social Security boobs denied my appeal for disability. Bastards. I spent the evening on the phone with family updating everyone. I have a huge decision to make. Do we continue to drown financially and wait for the appeal hearing, or do I suck it up, find a job & do the best I can? This is all so shitty. All my doctors and everyone in my world thinks I should be on disability, but Big Brother thinks not. Speaking with the lawyer today, naturally, I should file for the appeal hearing and stick it out. Looking at my bank balance, that’s easier said than done. It could take up to 6 stinkin months to get a hearing date with a judge. This system… sheesh. The lawyer continues to tell me that I have a very strong case and I wouldn’t have been taken as a client if we wouldn’t win. That makes sense to me because they don’t get paid unless my disability gets approved. So, I don’t know.
I just don’t know.
