What sets apart the accomplishments you are most proud of?
I realized recently that I am most proud of difficult tasks that I accomplished through intuition and creativity.

What about you?

The Toe-Forkoff
So, I was at my dad and step-mum's place, hanging out with my "little" 5'8 16 year old brother yesterday night. The grownups were gone. He's on this kick lately where he tries to do everything using his toes instead of his fingers. So, he was getting a snack, managed to get the bread from the fridge, gave up and used his fingers on the butter, than went for the silverware. He got the butter knife he wanted, but used his hand to steady himself on the counter. So I gave him a hard time about wussing out and using his hand. He said he wanted to see me do it without my hands then. So I did. One fork, extracted from the drawer with my toes without touching the counter. I've got an image to maintain, you know? He was suitably humbled ;-)

Netbook supports socialization :-)
So, accompanying my new netbook purchase is the resolution to use my newfound freedom of internet access to journal again, to blog and to actually visit my facebook account -shocking, I know 8) Having finished the reading of recent friend posts, I shall get on it with posts of actual content forthwith ;-)

*hugs* to all :)

Meow(s) :->
I adopted a pregnant kitty :-) A very, very pregnant kitty. A "gonna pop any day now" kitty ;-) Her name is Starlight, Star for short.

She's the sweetest, prettiest little calico kitty. It's really neat - she's probably going to have her kittens any time from today to 10 days from now. I can feel the kitten lumps in her tummy, and I can feel the kittens move if I keep my hand on her for a while. Kittens are so fun. We had them when I was a kid, and my morals have kept me from repeating the experience, as their really are too many cats in the world - but she's a rescued kitty, so I get guilt-free kittens :-)

I am so happy to have her - it gives me something to look forward to at home, and someone to cuddle when my sweetie is not around. And in cleaning off the porch for her, I have cleaned off my desk and provided myself a nice work space where she keeps me company.

FYI: If you haven't seen me nor heard from me, it's because I'm totally overwhelmed and stressed and life sucks. So it's great to have her to love.

I feel compelled to note...
That I did *not* sleep through the earthquake. In fact I awakened from a dream involving PB&J and oranges the instant my bed began to shake as though it were a gliding rocker. It was actually a rather pleasant though distressing sensation, and lasted only a few seconds. Nothing fell from anywhere. I've actually never been in an earthquake since I was old enough to remember such things. I've been out of state for all of them up to now.

Still ticking... ;-)
Happy New Year!

Have finally gotten back on lj and caught up a bit. Sorry to be so out of touch. A brief update -

My former school, where I got my Montessori teacher credential, has partnered with a University. They will take all my credit for my coursework as transfer credits, and with 3 more classes they will give me a Master's in Ed. I am very excited. They even qualify for actual FAFSA loans! and it's only about $ 7,000 total. Cheapest, fastest Masters ever. And having that degree will give me a lot more options. I hope not to need them, but you never know in this kind of crummy economic times.

I'm still teaching, at the same place. Still love it, but will be taking the summer off and filling in with tutoring and other random work. Am a bit anxious about that, but can't keep teaching constantly or I will burn out. If you have random work suggestions or offers, please let me know. Need to work about 2/3 time at $25 per hour (or less hours for more of course ;-) From mid-June through end of August. Will eventually get myself together and send out resumes and post adds on CL and such of course.

Also, I bought a car - mine was just about kaput, and I splurged naughtily, and got a new Honda Fit (sport) because it is the best and most perfect car for me ever. In my defense, they only started marketing them here in the US last year, and they were not so awesome that first year, so this year will hold its value better. I am loving it so much. So very, very much. Best car EVER. :-)

Thank goodness
The friend found a home for the cats at the last minute. I drove them to Everett, but needn't put out any extra money. Huzzah!

Please foster 1 kitty by Monday? Anybody in Seattle area?
I think I have found a place for three of my friend's kitties. She herself is going to go live in a shelter for a while. Could anyone possibly put up the last one for a few months? They need to be out of my apartment by Monday, and the lady who offered to take two made it contingent on finding fosterage for the other two. I found a friend to take one, but have one left. I can underwrite food and litter. I need to know write away.

Thanks

Friend needs place to live for her and/or cats by Oct. 15
Our friend has been staying with us, but needs her own place before we move to North Bend. She's been a good roommate. Unfortunately, she has 4 cats and that's making it difficult for her to find a place to move to. She would like to keep the cats in her room with her, rather than letting them range around the house/apartment. They are a bit older, and would be happy in one room. She's going back to school and would most like to find a situation where she could trade some work for some or all of her rent. At our place she's been keeping the kitchen clean, doing some cooking, laundry and other misc. tasks for us. She's held up her end of that with us. Please let me know if you might know of somewhere she could live, or someone who might be willing to foster some or all of her cats. She and the cats have got to have a place or places by the 15th of October.

Thank you :-)
