The madness...

I feel like we're about to go crazy like in those little extras in I Hate You More Than Anything where Hidaka-sensei talks about her and her assistants losing their minds.

On the very bright side, we had a laid-back day today. We're even done with work already! On the not-so-bright side, we have about a million hours of work ahead of us (more or less), and we're waiting on materials for all of it. We finished our work today, and then we went to check if maybe a delivery person had left a package for us in the office without telling us about it. On our way to the office, we ran into the UPS lady, who said, "Nope, not your apartment." Darn it! So we continued on our way to the office, where we found zero packages for us.

The thought occurred to us that maybe, somehow, the people in charge of sending us materials didn't realize that we hadn't gotten the materials already. On the one hand, we wanted to have faith that somebody was keeping track of those things, but on the other hand, we can't afford to wait the extra however many days it will take when we finally email them. So we sent an email. I bet you can all see where this is going.

The books will be sent out tomorrow. Siiiigh.

On the bright side! We get a day off! Or three! ...And we'd really better make the most of it, because it may be the only time off we get for the next several months. Unless we get the money to go to Disneyland, because then we are taking time off. We'll be far better equipped to deal with the overtime it will cause us after a nice refreshing trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Today I'm thankful for finishing work early! yay!, having a short vacation, getting to hear our three o'clock cuckoo chime for the first time yesterday, still having Hobnobs, and the fascinating birds on our August calendar.
