I don't know what's worse, blowing a tire out or having a truck full of drunk men try to help. I'm sure their hearts were in the right place but I could do it in the time it takes them to stumble out of their vehicle.

I usually run an easy 5 miles in the morning, and there is a new family moving in on the normal run. This morning, the guy was standing out there in a wifebeater tank and boxers, looking like he'd been stomped on and he's yelling at some neighbors dog. Great. It's a porchdick.

Why in the bloody hell do these dreams have to continue? Though I suppose the cliffhanger they ended at before was a bit awkward. And you know what else is awkward? Wanting to propose to your dream ladyfriend and getting a blessing from her father - only to realise that you were the one who murdered your would-be fiancee's grandfather. Neither she or her father know that, of course, because I seem intent on keeping it a secret. Since clearly a secret like that is a way to get someone to accept your proposal.

It was a robbery gone wrong, mind you. I just thought he was some twat whose carriage me and my crew looted, and then dumped the body on the side of the road. Sorry, Swan. I didn't kill anyone you're related to here, I assure you.

Well, anyway, all of this nonsense means a certain Savior has returned from the alternate universe she was sucked into. And we finally know who was clearly sent to kill her from yet another alternate universe. Do you have a headache yet? I certainly do.

Did receive a harpoon out of it though. It's enchanted, and why wouldn't it be? Perhaps this will come in handy next time I want to locate wayward souls, or potentially spear a squid for supper.

Sometimes late at night, I miss the world that was. The great city carved out of the earth and the trees above it that I whiled away the centuries dancing through. The constellations were different then. Different figures that told different stories. I miss the way the stars themselves looked. They were so much brighter then, so much more alive.

I miss my people and the songs they sang.

It is a world that is now gone, passed into myth and legend. Even the very shape of the continents is altered.

And I am the only one who remembers it.

I haven't had a dream in months - not since the one where I was shot. But I woke up this morning and there were new items from my dreams on the bedside table.

My mother's engagement ring and my father's watch. Two items that my parents still have and wear here, but that I owned in the dreams.

I'm not sure what it means, or even if it means anything, but it's certainly weird and just a bit unsettling. Because I know I was shot, I had the bruise on my chest for weeks where the bullet entered my body in the dreams and without anything to follow it up, I assumed I had died in them.

But, now, I'm questioning that and, scariest of all? If I didn't die, what actually happened?

Of all the things to wake up to Clyde was not what I was expecting. And as much as I'm sure he appreciates his little shell cover, I would've appreciated his vivarium.

Just wanna thank those who came over yesterday for my birthday BBQ. I don't tend to celebrate my birthday but I'm glad D'Artagnan convinced me to have a get together, it was good to see you all.

Grim was also happy about all the leftovers he got to eat - by stealing them off the kitchen counter.

Late night at the office tonight, and thank God for pack-and-plays. Viv is asleep in the corner while I go through this paperwork. Poor girl. She's amazing and patient. I wish that I could have given her a more interesting night tonight! But she's got her blocks in there, scattered around her little, sleeping body.

Means I'm stuck here until I'm finished with this mess and can head home. I'd sell my soul for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich right now.

In continuing the fine tradition of giving me items after I could have used them, my dreams finally gave me my armor. More specifically, I woke up with it on. I may or may not have been stuck in it for the past three days.

Yeah, ok, I was stuck in it for the past three days.

The upside is that my helmet synced up to every piece of electronic equipment I own, so I can use it to text, check email and post stupid network updates. The downside is that in the process of getting it off, I discovered that I also have the armor's special ability and proceeded to fry every piece of said electronic equipment with an EMP. Also...probably every piece of electronic equipment on the floor my apartment is located on.

This post coming to you live from an undisclosed location, where I'll probably be hiding out until my neighbors no longer want to kill me.

Our little puppy isn't such a little puppy anymore but that doesn't stop him from trying to act like one. He still tries to sit in my lap on all fours and I can barely even move when it happens anymore. This boy is a lady killer though. Two women gave me phone numbers because of him. Awkward.

I sucked it up and signed up for an eHarmony account. A lot of people are meeting online now-a-days, right? I'm actually kind of excited about it. It feels like there's more of a screening process than just randomly bumping into someone in a bar. (Not that I was ever much for bars, but...)

Wish me luck?

I keep making friends only to have them move away. It's getting tiring. It isn't like we intend to stop being friends, but they have new lives and new friends and maintaining long distance friendships doesn't typically work out when they don't even bother to come back for a visit.

Do any of you law enforcement types have any suggestions on how to get rid of a dream firearm? I obviously can't explain how I acquired it, or show proof of ownership, etc. "From my dreams" is likely not a valid option.

As most of our close friends know D'Artagnan and I were married in Paris on Saturday and it all went perfectly. Thankfully he was happily surprised.

We're currently in the town where D'Artagnan was born in the dreams and staying in a lovely quaint little place.

As my first act as adoring husband I have decided to share this picture with you all.

Today was completely crazy. And I can't remember ever feeling this overwhelmed with any feeling in my life.

Our baby was born. On Sharon's behalf, I want to say that we're beyond happy to finally meet our little girl. Viviana Margaret Carter - du Vallon. She was born at 6:22pm, and she's 19.2 inches and 6.8 pounds, and she's perfect.

I've never felt so in love in my life.

And Sharon's doing well. And thank you to everyone that was there through it all. I'm so glad to know she's already so loved by everyone.

Since it's spring, I've started wanting to do more things outside. The weather's just too nice to stay cooped up indoors, you know? So I take Moose for a nice long jog, and then do my usual workout routine on the front steps instead of in the gym.

Apparently a sneaky fiancé took pictures of me when I thought he was busy sunbathing. I can't be angry, really. I look damn good in them.

Anybody considering taking their dog to training classes really should. Even after just one session so far Grim has improved. He actually listens when you call to tell him not to do something.

Which is good as he almost found the secret stash of candy - if I don't watch it D'Artagnan might teach him how to hunt for it

It's going to be a casual thing at our home, BBQ, pool, that kind of thing.

It's been a very very full few days of partying (so pleased to see Aramis bragging about my party planning skills, by the by), so I'm not up to doing much tonight. The perils of getting older.

Turning thirty was a great success. Thank you to everyone who showed up, it was every bit the classy engagement I'd hoped for. I am tremendously hungover and wish there was an IV drip of coffee.

Ah well. Back to bed soon, I think, then I've been promised a pancake feast. It's a shame Lent starts tomorrow. I've decided to have a more traditional practice of it this year, and I got so many cake and pastry molds that will have to wait for April. Unless I break them in tonight.

I've had more of the new dreams it seems..I'd been given a letter to deliver to the Captain of the Musketeers Monsieur de Treville, but a Man from Meung stole it while I was unconscious after the last fight. I went anyway to see him without the letter, but found you don't just ask to be a Musketeer. You have to be commissioned by the King.

During the interview I spotted the Man from Meung outside the window and tried to pursue. Instead I end up basically running into Athos who was already injured and injuring him more. Then interrupting Aramis with some handkerchief thing, and finally basically tripping on Porthos's cloak after making fun of his clothing. Anyway I pissed all three of them off, so challenged each one to back to back duels while being pretty damn sure I wasn't even going to survive the first. One at noon, the other at one, and the last at two.

It seems I was wrong about the dreams being finished after all. Just a bit ago I had another I think. Paris again, but bit of a different Paris. I don't know how to explain it, except I had a yellow horse this time around. I'm fairly sure every eye in the city was watching me and insulting it. I ended up fighting with a group of them before I even made it to my final destination which was of course to see Monsieur de Treville. They weren't insulting directly at me, but that horse had been a family gift. I wouldn't stand for it. Naturally I had to stand up for it since it could not itself. It didn't end well.

I challenged a group of men on my own and was over powered. They didn't even face me with swords, they chose shoves and sticks and other random stuff to hit me with. Four to one and I still didn't move to escape. I didn't miss the headache these dreams left us with that's for damn sure.

Well, never a dull moment around here, is there? Sincerest thanks (and apologies) to the Flynn family for letting me stay on while my poor best friend was locked to Mister Flynn. I plan on sending a gift basket, just let me know what you'd like in it.

Is everyone else back to normal then? Everyone made some new friends? I know Aramis certainly has, since we're apparently having more people over than expected for his Feast Day. Bless, he'd invite the entire state over if he could.

Woke this morning under a strange influence. It apperas as if I'm attached to another person. I can't seem to leave.

I'll be working from home until this has passed, unless you're desperate for me to come in. I figure, this guy can't leave my side, either, and I'm not sure it's a good idea for me to drag him around, exposing all of our trade secrets.
