happyday

We did it!!!

Not only did we finish the omnibus, but we actually finished it about three hours ago! Then we had lunch, talked to Mom on the phone, and went to the store. We've been very productive! But the busyness and stress has gone on so long that now that it's over I can't shake the stress! I still need to take care of the... I need to call...! I'm pretty sure I need to email...nobody. We're done with everything!

Well, for now anyway. There are still things we need to think about and chores that need to be done, but for today, I think we'll just relax. And reward ourselves with cookies!

Anyway, I mentioned yesterday that there were potential other plans to go to Disneyland. See, a couple days before we left for our last trip, I got an email from the Disneyland surveys division, saying they wanted people for a focus group. Of course I was interested, so I filled out the survey, but I guess I didn't rush to fill it out soon enough, because today we got an email saying the quota has been filled. Oh well.

All of that amounted to a few texts and phone calls from Gaston, eager to know when we'd be going again. That actually added to the stress, because we were desperately wanting to work on Negima! uninterrupted so we could get it done and out of the way. We love Disneyland, but we also love to be responsible and meet all of our deadlines. When I let Gaston know I hadn't been selected, he suggested we could go anyway, and we agreed, but there hasn't been any word since. At this point, we're happy to stay home and work on Deltora Quest, which will be much more laid-back than working on Negima!.

But of course, we'd be happy to go to Disneyland, too.

Speaking of which, Collapse )

And that concludes our retelling of the tale of Sheriff Clem, Sally Mae, and Mayor McGillicuddy. Tadah!

Today I'm thankful for getting to try peppermint bark ice cream!, finishing the omnibus!, having a bunch of free time!, having tentative plans to go to IHOP with Celeste and Sarah!, and cast member jokes about the cost of food at Disneyland.
