Making a comeback

We're making a comeback today! Sort of. While editing our My Little Monster script, we made it to the point in our script that we were hoping to make it to on Wednesday. (Obviously not hoping badly enough to stay home from Wednesdays with Walt, but that's beside the point.)

It's hard, because there's more to our lack of getting paid than just "they haven't processed our invoices yet," which means we have to take action, and since the other parties involved are on the East Coast and there's a time zone thing, we want to get it done earlier so we can get back to them, and that means doing it before getting to work. So we do what we can, which so far has mostly ended in mild frustration, and by that point we don't want to work anymore. So it's really hard to push ourselves, which is especially difficult because one of the main sources of frustration lately is that we don't feel like we're getting anything done.

After dealing with that, we were in no state of mind to do any kind of work, but the only thing for it was to shake it off and work anyway. So we did, and afterward we were feeling a lot better! Except for the fact that we wanted to have this translation turned in by now. But it was fun, and we listened to Kingdom Hearts music. My Little Monster is really hard sometimes, but when we manage to solve the problems that pop up, we end up with dialogue that we think is pretty darn good.

In the meantime, Page is dealing with her latest flea treatment with a lot more poise than last time, poor girl.

We also went to the grocery store, despite our lack of money, because you can only go so long before you have to buy more toilet paper. We also bought ourselves a pizza for dinner tonight, because we really needed a pick-me-up, and we've had macaroni and cheese for dinner three nights out of the last four. (The other night was Wednesday, when we got home kind of late and decided Halloween snacks would suffice and were a heck of a lot less effort.)

Today I'm thankful for having more paper products, having a pizza to look forward to for dinner, making not terrible progress on My Little Monster, getting to sleep in tomorrow, and Page not shunning us after we gave her a flea treatment.
