is currently north of Roanoke, VA on his way to Gaston County, NC to pick up 6 kitties that were scheduled for euthanasia if they were not picked up by Friday. This icon is never more appropriate than now, actually, as the fate of many animals there hang in the balance. Unfortunately, overpopulation and lack of shelter space is always a concern and it is now kitten season. In fact, one of the kittens (age 6mos) there is already pregnant.

So my husband is helping out my coworker by transporting them from NC to RI. So what if it means that he might miss my birthday on Saturday? This is the best birthday present ever! He knows what my heart wants even if I didn't ask him to help. (The other thing I want is for our siamese to be able to move in here. I'm still trying to get landlord approval.)

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.

We arrived Sat. and are currently trying to find a way to stick around here. The town docks aren't ready yet for the season, so we need to get a hold of the harbormaster about pumpout and moorings nearby, and whether we can have our dinghy sent to him. Crossing my fingers that we will be allowed to remain tied up where we are until the season officially starts, as the current is too swift for anchorage.

I'll fill you all in later on the trip up, but basically it took three weeks due to the weather. We made good time while we were traveling but had to drop anchor to wait out adverse conditions. My husband is in Providence job hunting today while I look online at the library. Hoping that we can work something out ASAP.

On a positive note, everyone is safe and happy. And our friends came by yesterday with an Easter basket and dinner to welcome us back. Little by little we will get ourselves sorted out, but it's great to feel welcome. We visited our friend with the corgi Daisy, which helped. Still missing our sea dog Ringo but we're holding up alright. It just seems so unfair that I'll never get to see him again He was so young; had we been able to get to shore, the vet might have been able to save him. But we'll never know and we can't dwell on it. And I can't devote time or energy towards hating Josh for slandering and blacklisting us down south. For now, I have to focus on starting fresh up here.

Thank you once again, friends, for words of encouragement, greeting cards, blankets, etc. It really helped us to get through the worst of the winter and remind us that there are people who care. Once we get stabilized, we will visit Boston. For now, just feeling grateful to be here.
