English: I know what we're gonna do today!

Translated to Russian and back to english: I know what we' RH gonna DO today!

I translated "We count the bad things in life because it's a number we can manage. We don't count the good things, because the number would be too big for comprehension."
into Dutch and back and got "We count the prayed things in life because it' s. a. number we can manage. We don' t count the good things, because the number would be too piglet for comprehension."
We count the bad things in life because it's a number we can manage


We don't count the good things because the number would be too big for comprehension


If I had something to say...
