Actually, it wasn't so bad. We did a little bit of job-hunting, which was vaguely helpful as far as figuring out what we need to do to help ourselves, but not extremely helpful in actually getting us any kind of work. But at least we weren't totally slacking.
Anyway, we're currently wondering what kind of a reaction we'd get if we agreed to go to Sarah's football games if they agreed to read Saiyuki. Mom really likes action movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and Sahara and stuff, so normally she'd probably be okay with it. But she and Steve (mostly Steve though) seem to have a fear of manga, so all the slicey-slicey, the swearing, and the topless women would stand out more than usual, and they would be even more afraid. And then they might start trying to "subtly" get us more active in the Church... as if we aren't active enough already...
It would be an interesting experiment, but it would probably just end up making everything more annoying. We are trying to prove that manga is not evil, after all. Oh well.
So anyway, I've been trying to slip the gratitude journal thing in with my normal entries, but since I don't have anything to really embellish, I'll just have to do it the normal way tonight. This time, I'll just leave it in the same paragraph though. I'm thankful for Terry Pratchett books, and that I don't have any canker sores right now, and for our visiting teachers, and for gel pens, and that I was able to finish my e-mail to Clay so that I won't feel guilty for not working on it.
