All in all, today has pretty much been a day of de-stressing, and life is good, mostly. It's looking like our impromptu vacation means we can't reasonably cancel tonight's plans, and Tuesday night plans are kind of a significant source of stress, so the stress level may go back up very soon, but hopefully it won't.
Anyway. The other day, when I was venting our stress at Mom, she apologized, because apparently our constant fear of getting fired is genetic. That happened before this sudden vacation, which has us a little worried about the fact that our contract with one of our clients was up for renewal. Mostly, we're worried that maybe they've decided they don't want to renew our contract after all. But this is pure speculation, and only comes from our tendency to imagine the worst case scenario while taking everything way too personally. For all we know, they're looking at getting new titles, and they want us to work on one or more of them before we get to the thing we thought we would be translating this week! That would be fantastic.
Today I'm thankful for a nice relaxing day off, extra sleep this morning, the letter X, the beautiful weather outside, and bottles of juice that aren't impossible to open.
