Gabrielle's Life and Writings

Gabrielle Lawson, writer of Fanfiction. I will use this space to keep a journal about my writing, the progress I'm making, stories I'm working on, writer's blocks I'm having, our adoption process and progress and just life in general.

I'm multifaceted and highly educated. I have a BA in History and an MA in Museum Studies. But I couldn't make a living in a museum, so my hobby--computers--became my living. I'm now a charter member Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician. I aspire to be a professional writer and/or poet. I am a Christian and have been living by His grace for the last four years or so, despite the MegaStress and now the GigaStress. He keeps me going, and displays His glory still, in my life.

We Have Kittens!

That visiting cat I wrote about last time? She had her kittens! Five so far. I could swear I could feel another still in her tummy last night. So we'll wait and see how many there are after I get off work.

Anyway, she has five right now! Two little all-over tabbies, and one that looks a lot like her: white on the bottom, tabby on top. Then there are two mostly white ones, one with a tabby tail and top of head, and the other with black spots, five of which are in the same places as a 5 on a die (as in pair of dice).

And they are all just adorable! So tiny, they don't really look like cats yet. Their ears and eyes are closed, of course and their little heads are just so round. Their legs look almost bear. But they are still just adorable and I can't wait to get home and spend time with them. In fact, I was late to work today because I was visiting with them. My supervisor understands. She's a cat person, too.

They were born yesterday afternoon, I think. I found them when I came home from work. She had them on the extra bed down in the basement, but fortunatly the bedding did come clean in the wash. I've moved them all to a box specially prepared for them and they are doing fine there now.

So, if you want a kitten, these will be ready in 8 weeks. I'm thinking of making them little birth certificates and I know I'll be taking photos and videos, which I'll put on CD's for those who adopt them. I love looking back at Lina's "baby pictures" so I'm sure they'll be appreciated.

No, no more writing yet. But hey, if I''m going to be spending a lot of time in the basement where there is no TV and no computers (well, I do have a wireless card in my laptop), I might get more writing done!

Oh yes, and on the diet front: 113! Well, it's bounced up a bit the last two days, but I did hit 113. So now I'm aiming for 112.5!

And I'm up to 49 miles walked total in my training. I did 4 miles in 57 minutes last night. Yes, I managed to tear myself away from the kittens for a little while. ;-)
