So there's two big things, kittens and work.

First up, kittens!
A box with five kittens was left outside out apartment complex last weekend; a set of neighbors found it, and [livejournal.com profile] sol3 and I decided to take two of them in.
The best guess seems to be that they were 4 weeks old then and are 5 weeks old now. (And right now, they're both curled up asleep on me!)
They very quickly found their way out of the first box we put them in, figured out that the bathtub is a jail, and that the bathroom is a jail, too.
They were also litter trained in 2-3 days, which is totally cool.
Unfortunately, I got them the wrong kitten food when it was time to add solid food to their diet, and they got diarrhea - apparently, kitten food with tuna is bad for teensy little ones. After a visit to the vet today, they're going back to baby food, and then i'll mix better kitten food into it for them.
Overall, they absolute bundles of playful and snuggly joy. The only issue I'm having is that the grey one really insists on trying to suckle on me instead of sleeping sometimes - I'm hoping that'll pass soon.

And it's totally amazing how much they've matured in the last week - they went from walking awkwardly to running and leaping awkwardly, can both climb up onto the couch and do a great job of wrestling with each other or with toys.

Little Girl is holding up remarkably well through the addition. She hissed at them the first couple of times that she saw them and then walked away. Now, she watches them from afar when they're running around the house, and has come up and sniffed each of them without hissing.

Work is much less cuddly and adorable, but I'm liking my new job so far - it's still in the ramping up stages, but all of my coworkers seem really cool, and my projects are moving along. I was so nervous before leaving my last job, and now I'm totally sure that I made the right decision.
