Luckily for me, FFR will be providing everything: litter, food, cat box, collars, leashes, toys, scratching post, sleeping cage and anything else they think I'll need. What I have to provide is a safe, stable home and lots of love for the three kittens and, if I can, transportation to and from the showcases. I think I can handle that.
Yes, I will be having visiting hours for all my friends to come see the kittens. *smile* I have to make sure that they are socialized. So, as soon as I have them, the visitation hours will begin as well.
As part of the kitten proofing, I'm finally going through all of the boxes in my den. 90% of it is being tossed out. However, I came across several packs of pictures from long ago. Talk about flashbacks.
... Me with John Delancy at ShuttleCon 95. I can't believe how slender and pretty I was back then. I'll have to see if I can get that picture scanned.
... Me and the Reliant at a Mall recruiting. I was in my white Deanna Troi outfit.
... Dennis in his uniform.
... A picture of Chris.
... Johanna and her then boyfriend, Scott, going at it with boffer weapons.
... A picture of my father and I at Monterary. I think I was 18. That one got put some place safe. Another one where I was young, pretty, slender... and thought I was ugly, fat and worthless. I really, really wish I could go back in time and have a long talk with my younger self.
... A couple of college pictures - Debi, JamesW, Robert, Cherny.
There are so many memories. So many dreams I had - and forgot. Don't get me wrong, I've fulfilled a lot of my dreams. It's just strange, sometimes, to unexpectedly be tossed back into a forgotten time to compare then and now.
I suppose I should stop this meloncoly train of thought, get something to eat and get back to cleaning and kitten proofing.
