Today we sign the lease and get our keys! YAY! then we can start moving stuff over, and move in once the utilities are turned on. More news to follow soon. Watch this space...

Also, we have decided to enroll in Zipcar, so that we can rent a car this weekend to go to my grandmother's 90th birthday party. >^.^<

No voice today. Finally came down with illness that's been going around. Found Theraflu that I'm not allergic to. Am hungry but cannot swallow anything complicated, so I'll have to send loverboy to the store for Tofutti. LOL

Apartment: Tomorrow may be moving day, as we got word last night that they received our security deposit and we need to come in to sign the lease and get keys. Can't move in, though, until we turn on the utilities, but overall, this works out really well. We receive a utility allowance which means that technically, we don't have to pay rent ourselves until we actually get hired and our income level changes, I can't wait to move in and to collect our storage. YAY!

Today's plan: packing and trying to use up food.

Cats: Feel better after talking with the foster group, who will check with the man who had fostered them before and had bonded with Leia about whether he would be willing to foster them again until we can make arrangements. Right now, she needs to be on antibiotics and prednisone for her bouts of colitis, which will fade once she is in a less stressful environment. Both cats love kids and have been gentle with the infant and toddlers, (TaunWe lets the baby tug his ears and flop all over him, and grooms her) but it's just too much for Leia to handle right now. The vet recommends getting her tested for feline leukemia, so I might do that on Friday when they get their FVRCP booster. They are up-to-date on their rabies until next Feb. so that's good.

Job: Need to let PARL know that we're moving and that I won't be in tomorrow. Still applying for jobs. Still volunteering. Haven't given up hope, but I wonder if maybe my address is part of what's been hindering the process. If employers google it and see that it's a shelter, they might get the wrong idea about me. But at least for now we will have our own place again and know that the rent is taken care of.

Grandmothers: March 2nd is my grandmother's 90th birthday, There is a family party on Saturday wihch we may be able to attend; we're looking into using a Zipcar, on the advice of a LJ friend. ^_^  My gran and I are very close friends, and its' been two years since I've seen her so I am determined to work things out this weekend. She still is fairly active, but is starting to slow down now.

Speaking of grandmothers, we spent yesterday with Bryan's gran. She wants to help us with furniture and/or a washer/dryer. Because we have w/d hookup.

Guys, I'm really stressing now about the cats. It dawned on me this morning that although I have the pet policy form for public housing which permits up to two cats, that we'll be meeting with section 8 this morning and the property manager this afternoon... and I'm not sure if they follow the same guidelines. If not, then I will have to make arrangements for the cats, i.e. contact my boss at the cat sanctuary. (They would be allowed to live out their natural lives there if not adopted.)

If they do accept pets and the housing pet policy, then I need to schedule the vet visit, have Leia tested for feline leukemia, update vaccinations, and have the vet sign a form for housing. I need to print out the rabies vaccination certificates that are on my flash drive. Then I have to provide a pet deposit fee when I submit the pet policy. I do have some money saved up which was intended for purchasing a car, but family comes first. I'm trying not to spiral into panic mode. It may not be a problem at all. The meds have been working well; however, I should contact my therapist about claiming the cats as therapy pets just in case.

Leia and TaunWe have been through a lot. They've adapted well to new places and people, but in Leia's case, the stress is exacerbating her symptoms. I can administer her meds and give her a calm, quiet environment, and she will recover. If the vet wants her to be on Prozac, I'll give it to her. I can retrain her to use the toilet if using the litter box is too painful for her right now. Just please allow us to keep our cats in the new apartment.

If all goes well, Monday we meet with Section 8 housing to sign some papers and go over rules, and then we get to look at the apartments and decide which one we want. As soon as I get my keys, I'm buying an air mattress and a scratching post for my cats. Then my love will drive to Buffalo and collect our stuff from storage. Say goodbye to homelessness!

I sometimes miss certain aspects of living aboard, I'm glad to be back on land and to have had the opportunity. I can finally get past the traumatic events and focus on the parts which I enjoyed about sailing, My one regret is that our dog didn't complete the journey with us. However, Ringo inspired me to go back to school for my veterinary education and devote my career to animal rescue.I love what I do at the Woonsocket Cat Sanctuary and the Providence Animal Rescue League.  I now write for Examiner.com (although it's a slow start) about local animal news while I continue to apply for animal care jobs. I finally feel like my life is back on track.

Next goal to accomplish: getting my driver's license...
(Learning to sail was much more difficult, so I can do this. "No Fear".)
