Long day

Nothing really to report today. Work went longer than hoped, and the nephews demonstrated once again their uncanny ability to call right when we're finished. Good for our deadlines, but they always manage to call right before we get a chance to eat a snack.

We did start a new world in Minecraft. This time, Grawp chose one with a "spooky mansion," so we spent most of our Minecraft time exploring it. It was...kind of interesting, I guess. There wasn't a whole lot of "doing," and we're more interested in stories than settings, so it was mostly like, "Yep...it's a mansion. That it really is."

Grawp told us he probably wouldn't call us back after dinner, so we thought it would be a good time to stay caught up on anime...but the Crunchyroll app decided it was done for us. So we decided to see if we could figure out what was up with the Funimation app and maybe watch The World Ends With You, but it was giving us the usual login difficulties. We're going to have to chat with tech support tomorrow. Seriously, though, if this keeps up, we're going to have to cancel our subscriptions. It's stupid to keep paying them for nothing.

So instead we watched Netflix.

Today I'm thankful for finishing all our work before the nephews called, getting to do some salmon runs in Splatoon, Netflix not letting us down, knowing that most of the anime I really want to see is going to be on Netflix, and getting a DIY recipe for a pan flute in Animal Crossing.
