It's a miracle!

Against most odds, we finished our translation of Sailor Moon 9 on time, and we didn't even have to work overtime today! It was amazing! When we looked at our schedule and saw that we would only have six business days to work on it, we were more than a little worried. But we did it! It probably helps that we worked on two Saturdays, but we didn't work much on either of those days. At any rate, we're very grateful that it happened.

We celebrated by...watching Miraculous! Of course. But we're also going to bed early. We have been so sleepy lately. We just don't know how to take care of ourselves, I guess. But right now we're on track to get to bed an hour early! Which means by the time we actually go to sleep, we should have at least fifteen minutes more than usual! ...Unless we hit on a really interesting Miraculous-related topic that keeps us up. ...No! We must be strong! We still have to start and finish a volume of Saiyuki by Friday! I think we can do it, but it's going to be a little iffy, because we'll also have a chapter of UQ Holder! to translate, and those can be time-consuming. I kinda miss the days when they were only 16 pages. But at least now they only come once a month.

Today I'm thankful for finishing another volume of Sailor Moon, having time to finish season one of Miraculous and start season two again, getting to have extra chocolate cookies today, getting to hear about Hagger's very astute and self-aware observation ("Why isn't that man wearing a shirt? People will stare at him like I'm staring at him."), and not having to work overtime today.
