Outlook tentatively good

I feel like on weekdays this journal is a daily report on whether or not we think we can survive our deadlines. Today, the answer is it looks like we can! Huzzah!

Of course, this forecast is subject to change as soon as Gaston calls and says we're going to Disneyland. We've been pretty sure he'd be wanting to go tomorrow, but no word yet. Come to think of it, he's probably waiting to see if the wind dies down enough to have fireworks. But in the meantime, we'll hopefully make a sizable dent in either Hanako-kun or Wake Up Sleeping Beauty. Maybe both!

We pulled up our calendar and things are looking like they might possibly be doable, but the first half of January... It seems okay for now, but there's one series we're working on that seems to come around monthly and we haven't heard anything about January yet. And! the most exciting thing of all is that the newest volume of In/Spectre comes out in Japan on Friday! I love that series, but oh man, am I hoping the new arc is told more in the form of dialogue than long narrations. It was tough, is what I'm saying. Well, all we can do is soldier on and hope for the best.

Today I'm thankful for meeting our work quota today, getting a ride to the bank, getting to buy some mixing bowls, not seeing any new volumes of Nekogahara listed on Amazon Japan (another series we love, but also would like to not have to translate just now), and having an episode of UQ Holder! to look forward to watching (but not tonight, because we're being good and going to sleep).
