And it's not like today was even especially exhausting. All the kids were really good in Primary and everything. It's just that we've been going and going and going for so long that we're starting to wind down. The batteries are low and they take more time to charge and drain faster. We're like two weeks away from being caught up with Japan on our monthly manga releases, but those two weeks are definitely going to be trying. We're already a little behind on First Love Monster (not behind our deadline; just behind where we want to be), and then we had another little non-manga project come up, and we could have said no but we really didn't want to, even though in a way we really did. So that will be another couple of days, which will probably also involve working on First Love Monster. This week is going to be a week of multi-tasking.
But anyway, in the interest of having something more fun to ideally revitalize ourselves or at least to have something exciting(?) to talk about in the future, now it's time for us to go sort through some of the pictures from our Japan trip. And then maybe we'll go have some "real food" for dinner.
Today I'm thankful for dreams of consuming all the chocolate, the kids being really good in Primary today, the beautiful flowers the Sunbeams and I saw on our nature walk, being able to at least have a nice cup of chilled chocolate even if we can't have ALL of it, and the video we saw on Facebook of the little hamster doing backflips.
