Um... stuff...?

And since I made that last entry, we got a grand total of two and... man not even a half, I think, pages done. But that has a lot to do with the fact that I finally went visiting teaching today. It was actually really nice, and I'm glad to be doing it. Lately I thought that if the world ended in a week, if there was something I didn't want to have to answer for, I'd better fix it. And so I'm glad I went visiting teaching. I'm still terrified of people, but I do enjoy spending time with them.

After that, our home teacher came over. Well, a while after that. Enough time for us to learn that a local basketball game can actually delay the airing of Smallville, which was a bit of an annoyance. But then our home teacher came over, and his message this month was that, if you want to be a certain way, just be that way--the things you do today define the things you do tomorrow, and stuff. This is something I've always agreed with, but then when you put it into perspective and realize that that means if you don't want to be poor, you have to look for work, it gets to be a bit annoying.

See, we emailed a company about a week ago about translating, and we haven't heard back, so we're like, "That's okay, the ball's in their court now," but then our home teacher said we should bug them, and he's right, but I don't wanna! Part of the problem is we're not sure if they use freelance or in-house translators. I guess emailing them again couldn't hurt. *sigh*

On the bright side, he said he'd call them as our manager if we didn't want to do it, but thinking about it further, I realized he doesn't seem to have a clear enough idea of this particular area to be much help. But it's the thought that counts.

Tonight I'm thankful for managers, friendly visits, leftover cookies, frying pans, and spatulas.
