Woo Hoo! We got our lawsuit settlement check.

A couple of months ago, we received a very official looking letter from an attorney's office.  It stated that the Historian was listed among the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against his former employer.  Apparently they did not correctly calculate part of his severance pay when he was laid off several years ago, and he was now going to get that money--minus legal fees of course.   We should expect the check to arrive in 4 to 6 weeks.  We thought it would be nice to have some extra cash coming in around Christmas.

Well, we waited and waited, and I forgot about it.  Then a couple of days ago, we get a certified letter containing the check.  With great anticipation, the Historian opened the letter.  Then I heard him laughing.  Guess what we got? 

Drumroll please....

A check for $0.81.  Yes, $0.81.  That is the net, not the gross amount.  Before taxes it was $1.33.  I'd better try not to spend it all in one place.

Too Many Loose Ends

Life is busy at Bradford Academy these days.  Responsibilities and activities are snowballing.  Much is not getting done.  It's mainly my fault.  Some of it is not my fault.  Some things could have been dealt with properly if communication took place more than 2 days before the event.  Now that would make a good post., but priorities have to be made. 

I am also dealing with some health issues.  It's not really bad, but I do need to see a doctor.  I am trying to hold off until 2009 because we have very high deductible health insurance.  I have had to let some things go, and the blog is the easiest.  I hope to get back to posting after final exams, but if not
