Can it be true?

We're kind of stunned today. We're at an almost complete loss. We were fully expecting to be babysitting this morning, because our neighbors are packing up to move (still nearby) at the end of the month, and the father said he'd need another day for the garage. I guess since the packing is going a lot faster than expected, they decided to give us a break. It's also true that he never specified that that other day would be today. But the point is, we got up early so we'd be ready when/if they showed up...and they didn't.

Well, that's okay, we should have a chapter of UQ Holder! to translate or something, right? Wrong. We have no UQ Holder! today, and we're on book watch for our next assignment. So we're like, "Can it really be true? Do we actually have a day off?" The elusive, almost mythical day off we've been wanting for so long, finally here?

And now we just don't know what to do with ourselves. There are so many things we'd been wanting to do on a day off that we don't know where to start. Not only that, but we did get a heads up for a ton of work in May and June, so we're thinking we might want to get as far ahead as we can on the work we already have...but the only materials we have are a couple of volumes of Missions of Love, the first of which isn't due for two months. (Not that it would be a bad idea to turn it in anyway, so it's definitely still an option.)

We've also considered the option of going to Downtown Disney and spending the day watching all the movies we've been interested in seeing. We're not sure that's such a good idea for our finances. And there are a couple of side projects we've been wanting to work on, a bunch of anime we're interested in seeing, a ton of reading we want to do... But of course, most likely we're going to spend a lot of time playing Kamigami no Asobi.

That being the case, Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for having free time today (still not sure it's real), getting a break from babysitting, pictures of cute kitties on giant snake plushes, being ready to start Anubis's storyline (assuming we can figure out exactly how to get to it--we've had trouble with unlocked love sim characters before), and the assurance of more work in the future.
