So I'm 24 today.

I'm still alive, happy, and warm down in AZ. I'm actually living in Phoenix proper now with the hubby (Shawn) and I have my 2 year visa. Working on my adjustment of status to a permanent resident, but aparently we have to resubmit the taxes/proof of income because they want this years stuff, not last years.

Jeremy loves it down here, it's never cold, and he has a window behind my desk to lay in and still be close enough for constant snuggles, and though Maximus doesn't like going outside for long, he never did and with his fur/the heat I understand.

I've put on a little weight (20lbs) due to not working, but our apartment complex actually has a fitness center (imagine that) and so I'm starting to try and go do the recumberant (sp?) bike 3 times a week to get back into shape. Hopefully I'll be able to get the work autorization soon so I can start working again too. They said 90 days, but they also said 6-9 months to get my visa, so I'm skeptical.

Hope all you guys who still bother reading this are doing well, I am, and just to let you know I still read LJ every morning, I just never post anything because I'm not really doing anything of interest.

Luvs you all, and happy Earth Day.

Because sometimes it needs to be said.

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage/relationship (or if you think you might be someday), and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

So Shawn took me to a Jonathan Coulton ( www.jonathancoulton.com ) show in Phoenix on Thursday, meaning the parents babysat the kittens for a couple hours so I could go. It was really awesome and I got some nice shirts and merc. I got autographs from Paul & Storm ( www.paulandstorm.com ), his opening act, and a picture with Joco.

In kitten news they are doing good and growing (but they made a mess last night so they'll probably receive their first bath today). They've doubled their birth weight in the first week so they're still on schedule, and the calico has decided she is alpha cat and going to cry constantly even though there is nothing wrong. She's the smallest though so I think thats where some of her food is going as the other two are five ounces and she's just over four.

And the little grey one has learned to purr, which s/he does whenever fed. It's adorable, and I'll be getting more photos when they're eyes open, though I'm not sure how yet due to the light sensetivity when they first open their eyes.

I've had a litter.

EDIT: sorry it's a little big so it breaks the friends page, but I don't know how to have LJ size it down :(

I am now a Mother...of kittens.

So a guy that Hubby and his brother work with had a stray come into his house and have kittens on Mothers day (at 8-9ish pm). Ben is his name. Ben let the cat start have kittens, and moved them and the mother to some towels under the sink. Two were born fine, the one feeble (didn't survive until I got there to check on it) and a stillborn one. After that the mother seemed really tired (since she was too tired to chew the umbilical cord off the second one and didn't do anything with the next two) so I didn't think she had any other kittens left in her. We went home planning on coming back and checking on her in the morning. Then she had one more living kitten while we were gone.

Well, when we got back in the morning the mother took one look at us and split. I don't think she was coming back, and I couldn't just leave the kittens there hoping she would as Ben had left town for an important meeting in LA. So I grabbed a box and a towel and now I've got three kittens that think of me as mother.

I don't know any of the Fosters or the SPCA that currently have any queens that just had kittens within the last day or two so there is no surrogate mother available, so I'm really glad I've helped birth puppies and helped with bottle feeding them before so I have some experience.

Kittens are now on "Just Born" kitten milk replacement. I've had them for 24 hours now, and they seem to be doing good. They are eating regularly now, going to the bathroom without issue, and sleeping like they are supposed to. They are also on schedule with weight from yesterday (up half an ounce, making each kitten a mighty 2-2.5 ounces).

Unfortunately this means I got almost no sleep last night because I was woken up every two hours to feed the babies.

Pictures will follow, I promise.

You Are 21% Pure

Pure? Sure, you're about as pure as yellow snow.

You're a downright devil. But you're also a pretty delightful one!

So we should be arriving in Ottawa at 3:20pm on Monday (next monday, April 14th). From there it seems we'll be renting a car, dropping off stuff, and going to get some food (as we leave at 6:00am).

First Planned Foodening:

Where: Sushi Kan (1440 Merivale Road, Nepean, ON)
When: As soon as we can get there, probably 4:30-5:00pm

Second Planned Foodening:

Where: Pho Bo Ga 2 (843 Somerset St W, Ottawa, ON)
When: 9:00 pm

We may be going to ESD sometime during the night as well, as Shawn really wants to try their poutine, since I've been raving about it. I'm also going to need to shore up my supplies of curds and maple products, as I've been sorely lacking.

So far I don't have anything planned for day two, other then wanting to go to Curries sometime during the day, and Shawn might want to go to Phods that night. We probably won't be up late on Tuesday since we need to leave so early in the morning on Wednesday to drive to Halifax.

Unfortunately it looks like puppy wont be coming with for this trip, there is just too much stuff we would need to do, and things that we don't know about, and I don't want him to get left behind again as it was way to hard on both of us last time.

The weather in AZ is crazy...it's already around 30 out every day.

In other news I started excersizing today. I joined up at curves (for the accountability) and I'm gonna try and lose some of my winter weight and get back into shape. I kinda wanted to join a gym with Shawn (cause he's been making the same complaints I have) but he's not ready for it, and I like the atmosphere there.

In Other other news, we've bought the plane tickets, we'll be back in Ottawa the afternoon of the 14th (of April), staying in town for the 15th, and leaving for Halifax early morning of the 16th. On the way back we should be back in town on the 23rd (late at night probably) in town for the 24th, and back to AZ early afternoon of the 25th.

It's been a very sad, and quiet, past few days for me due to something that happened to a friend of mine online. Please send her all your love and prayer. http://www.sacbee.com/101/story/796648.html
