requesting further information (ACS Approval letter)

He asked me to send the ACS Approval letter by return email ASAP.

I immediately went to my "Australia" folder on my computer desktop, attached the PDF file of the scanned document (I swear I had attached it 6 months ago) and emailed it to our CASE OFFICER.

Then logged in to check our status. File states
APPLICANT BEING PROCESSED FURTHER!!!!

I checked the 2nd page and only my information is marked MET

Checked email again...

Thanks for that- how could I possibly compete with the joyous shouting when I'm already here, and my joy is tempered by the fact that I've got to spend more cash renewing passports and leaving the country in order to come back in?????? Seems crazy to me.
