During my first Father's Day, I was spit up on, cried on, sat in a rocking chair for hours with my little son while he fussed at me, and I loved every second of it.

Why didn't I think being a dad was a good idea? It's the best!

I had...the weirdest dream--nightmare last night. But looking through a few of these posts, this is common? Is it something in the food or air around here?

I don't usually have dreams in my sleep but this felt so real. Maybe I need some melatonin.And some of you warned things would be odd. But this is probably just coincidence.

Probably time I found a therapist out here anyways.

Afternoon everyone. I'm still new to how things are done around here so please forgive me if I'm not up to slang or the norm or..a network of communication?

But as a new sheriff for your community it's only right I become apart of that community. My name is Rick Grimes, I've just transferred here from King County, Georgia. And no, I won't be debating on whether or not our cooking is better, because it is. Decent ice breaker?

I've never been past the state of Kentucky so I look forward to getting to know you all and now things work on this side of the states.

So, it just came to my attention today that the other day was National Spouse Day or something along those lines. Since I know now, I can't not make some sort of post about my husband. It's still a little strange, calling Alexander my husband, but I love saying it at the same time.

Obligatory Couple Picture )

This was one of the first pictures I sent my parents of us, hence the reason my eyes are glamoured instead of yellow. It's one of my favorites of us.

I think this would be a good place for anyone else who's married to talk about their spouse.

Garden planned for spring already set, everything I need acquired. It's kind of nice having a lot of space to plan for a garden. I know I'll be spending time around the world, but, magic helps regulate the care of the plants.

I ain't never been claustrophobic, but this morning I woke up feeling that way. I guess spending the night in the trunk of an abandoned car will do that to a person. Still ain't found anybody yet, it's just Beth and I out there. Girl wants her first drink, and we managed to find a bottle of Peach Schnapps at a country club we stumbled upon. Told her that her first drink wasn't going to be any damn Peach Schnapps, and so we headed back into the woods to this place I'd found with another one of our group before. It's an old moonshiner's place, reminded me of home in my dreams, and well we got into the shine.

Decent stuff, so I'm glad that Beth got a good first drink. In the end we burned it to the ground, a cleansing of my past or some meaningful bullshit like that. I'm glad, however, that I did get to share that with her.

[Private to Rick]
Sorry if I was an ass this morning. I was a little hungover from the dreams. But we have some good shine and a bottle of Schnapps if you want to partake.

Has the attitude toward dispensaries for medicinal marijuana changed around here or is it still considered inappropriate to have a storefront around regular shopping centers?

I'm trying to find a place for one and real estate here doesn't come cheap, especially not commercially-zoned.

My top secret plan to acquire a cat while my husband is out of town is complete. He will be utterly surprised and not suspect a thing.

This is Shadow, which is what the shelter named him. And Shadow he will stay until my husband comes up with a better name, because I'm not good at that kind of thing.

He's my fierce little panther and I love him already. He sleeps on my stomach.

This is a public service announcement. My name is Rick Grimes. I live at [address] where my family and I have holed up after this incident started. I got no answers for what's happening since this is nothing I've dealt with myself. I can tell you we don't have any pockets coming through here.

So far? We're safe here and we're well-fortified.

If anyone needs a safe place to seek shelter, you're welcome here.

I've been looking forward to Independence Day since last Independence Day, and instead of getting drunk and throwing a barbecue and watching the goddamn fireworks, I get to spend the whole day worrying about fucking zombies.

This is not fucking okay, whoever's in charge. Maybe I can get drunk anyway.

Summer squash is overflowing my gardens. I've been reading up on some recipes. I liked this one since it was a catch-all bake with multiple squash used. Rachael Ray has a simple saute which turned out really well once I added zucchini to balance out the red pepper.

It's a good time to be a farmer. That's for sure.

Every time I think I've killed all the bad guys, more crop up to take the place of the others. I don't think this is a war I'm meant to win.

Are any wars meant to be won? I'm starting to think not.

Every Dream gets a little better and a little worse for exactly the same reason: I get a little more comfortable with being that other man, that survivor, that killer.

I worry what will happen when I wake up and that other man is the one who gets out of my bed instead of me. He's the same, see, same face, same body, same scars. The name isn't even something important to me. The fact that's the same isn't anything in comparison to all the rest of it.

What happens to my kids when that man pushes me out of my head, takes over, decides to find a new way to survive?

I think that scares me more than any other possibility which could come out of my restless nights.

Looks like things might be getting a bit better for the group I'm with in my dreams. Found a prison to hole up in. There's plenty of Walkers, but I think we can all take them out pretty easily. It's a good thing we found a place, people are tired of running and one of them is pregnant so hopefully we can set some roots down even if it's just for a little while.

Things still ain't getting any better in my dreams. Hell, they only seem to be getting worse with each passing one. At least we're still surviving. I reckon that's all that matters, but damn if it don't feel like I'm spinning my wheels all the damned time.

My baby girl is fifteen months old now. Time flies by before we know it. She went from being unable to roll over on her own to running around on me everywhere. My son is much older so he's a great help with her. It's only some days I wake up wishing her mother were here to see how she's grown.

Today is one of those days where I miss my wife.

I'm a lucky man to still have both my children along with the very best friend a man could ask for to help me raise them. I know I'm lucky. Some days I still miss what I've lost all the same.

Valerian has begun teething this month. Last night I think was the worst night yet. He had a tummy ache on top of teething yesterday, so he cried for a good portion of the night. We finally managed to get to sleep, later than normal, but now he's in his walker slobbering all over the toys attached to it and his cold teething ring.

While he's doing that, I think I'm going to take some time to play the piano while things are calm here. Well, after I finish my cup of tea that I desperately need this morning.

Found out in my dreams that the guy who's farm we're currently holed up at has a barn full of Walkers. He apparently believes that they're still human, and that there's going to be a cure. Hate to break it to him, but we were at the CDC and there ain't anyone working on a cure since it blew up. One of the guys from our group opened up the barn to let them out, and we killed all of them cause it was stupid to think that they wouldn't eventually break out and do the same to us.

Worst part of it all is the little girl we were searching for was in there, one of them. I keep wondering if or when we'll ever get a break, but I don't think we ever will.

I was nearly food for a walker in my dreams last night. Woke up to a nasty scar on my side, at least I didn't wake up bleeding, and there was another surprise from my dreams here in the real world. There was an ear necklace on my night stand, each ear from some walker I'd killed trying to get back home.

We still ain't found the girl that disappeared. I keep telling her momma that we'll find her, but I doubt it at this point.

Seems as if time flies by these days. My daughter was born yesterday some days yet now? She's growing into her own. She'll pass one-year-old and then I imagine it'll be a blink of an eye when I'm taking her to her first day of school.

My boy is already almost a man. Fourteen going on forty.

Where did 2015 go?

I can't tell if I lost the year in transition or if I simply closed my eyes, chose not to pay attention.

Guess I should get a jump start on my New Year's Resolutions to say I'll make certain I'm eyes wide open for all of 2016. I don't want to miss a thing.

I have to say the thing I really dislike most about Thanksgiving is probably going back to work Monday and having to dodge all of the questions about 'Did you enjoy getting to go see your family?' I know for most people it's just small talk, but for some of us it's just... every bit the wrong question at the wrong time.

Second runner up, my normally quiet library is going to be a madzone for the next few weeks when everyone suddenly remembers they have exams coming up and deadlines they forgot about entirely.

I keep thinking there's something I'm forgetting. I don't know why I think that. I only know I can't keep my head on straight unless I'm directly attending to some kind of business.

Working with my plants helps. It's always good to feel as if I'm doing good for someone else.

Being with my children? That's what keeps me going.

I feel as if I should be doing more than I am for them. I'm hardly enough to be a father much less both father and mother to my two. It's hard. Harder than I ever thought it would be.

All I know is I'm doing the best I can. I can only pray it's enough.

Drought weather seems to have settled in firmly on us. Not sure what is happening here. I've been hand-watering my crops including the greenhouse planters. It seems to help some with the drying I'm getting, but my herbs are getting outright cooked. I can't seem to find a healthy medium with them. Thinking about pulling them to pots and bringing all of them in the house proper. Sure the place might start smelling a bit like Martha Stewart's holiday kitchen, but my boy can't complain too much.

Better than when I tried to clean with vinegar.

Read about that in a book. Said it was good for getting rid of odors in a natural way. Should have known better.

Anyone also a farmer on this network? I'm having no problems with some crops so long as I handfeed. It's the herbs I'm not doing so well on. My thyme is nearly done for while my rosemary is absolutely brittle. The basil is wilted to a state I think even repotting may kill it all. I'll take any suggestions anyone has to hand. This is my first full crop out here in California and I got kids. I can't afford to lose everything in my herbal shop when I was counting on that stock line for our daily living.

I'm starting to notice some things about my dreams. Number one, I'm a twelve year old boy. Two, I have an older brother that's a yellow talking dog. Three, there's a princess that keeps popping up. I shit you not, her name is Princess Bubblegum. Four, apparently I'm a hero there, because I was sent to get some weird book for heroes.

Crazy stuff, next thing you know I'll probably be dreaming about dancing spaghetti.

A part of me wishes I'd thought of doing something like that to my son when he was old enough to ask that question. His mom would have laughed about it. Probably not until after she'd finished reminding me that I wasn't supposed to mess with his mind like that but she'd still have laughed. God I miss her

I really don't understand wearing your trousers so low that your pants hang out. I know where it supposedly originated from, but how did it become a thing outside of that?

I know I shouldn't use the noise from the TV to calm Judith down on nights she can't sleep but sometimes I discover new shows. Well it wasn't actually on tonight but I saw a commercial for it and it could be entertaining if I can ever catch it when it's actually on. It's called Cutthroat Kitchen. It might not teach me anything about actually cooking any of the dishes but it could still be a good way to relax and waste some time after the kids are in bed.

Giving my son a dog for Christmas wasn't as bad an idea as I thought it was going to be. He really was serious when he told me that he'd take care of the dog and I wouldn't need to worry about it. I think I've had to take her out one time since Christmas morning which isn't all that bad.

I managed to find a babysitter for tonight so I'll be there but the kids won't. I need a night off I just think Judith's too young still and I'm worried about how she'll take to a stranger without her brother there.
