My Heavenly Hockey Club

I realize that it's been a while since we updated on our post-fire living situation, so here's a brief update: We're still living at our mother's house, which requires a little bit of flexibility as far as how we're used to doing things, but that's really more of an inconvenience than anything else. Now we're trying to decide if we should rent a place, or stay here until we can afford a down payment on a home, because why not? The answer to "why not" is that the piano is in storage and will probably stay there until such time as we have relocated ourselves, and since I'm the ward choir accompanist, that's a problem. There are also a couple of volumes of manga that it turns out we actually need to send back to Kodansha--we usually don't need to do that, and so those volumes are packed and probably close to the back of our very full storage unit. The cats have gotten to a point where they can all be in the same part of the house together, but we still have to be careful to keep Page away from the cat door, because we don't know if she's going to need to be an indoor cat again once we move.

Speaking of Kodansha, it looks like the next series we translated was for them! Or actually for Del Rey Manga, which has always been the same entity to us as Kodansha USA. So let's talk about it!

Today I'm thankful for getting the internet back before that boss ran away in Kingdom Hearts [chi], having Reese's cupcake mix, getting to do some reading today, fond memories of Hockey Club, and getting to watch American Ninja Warrior last night.
