I'm making good progress on writing out the stories I'd made up for the twins and revising and polishing them. I still haven't found an artist yet to illustrate them. I know if I don't find anyone, the publisher will probably find someone they like for it, but I'd rather ask here first if any one here is either an artist who would like to work on a children's book, or if anyone knows anyone who would like to work on a children's book?

I never thought that parenthood would consist of telling my kids pouring catnip into the water bowl so our cat can have tea time was a bad idea, but that was my day today.

So, parents of Orange County, what is your moment of "nothing prepared me for this weird part of parenthood"?

The emergency vet clinic is an eerie place in the middle of the night. I had to take Patch because she ate an entire bag of chocolate, and chocolate is deadly for dogs. They gave her a shot, and I think she feels like I betrayed her because I let it happen. But so far, she seems to be fine.

I honestly don't understand why some people treat stop signs as suggestions at four way intersections. Especially when there are other cars in the intersection. Luckily I was paying attention to the other car, because I could tell he wasn't going to stop at the sign for me to go, which he should have since I was there first. Had I not been paying attention though and assumed he was going to stop, he would have hit me. There are some people who need a refresher on road rules, I think.

So in my dreams, my best friend is going to The Hunger Games.

Not cool. I promised her I'd take care of her mom and her little sister.

Honestly, I'm not sure how dream Gale is going to deal with Katniss being gone.

Right, so. Just a friendly reminder The Peppy Pie offers a 10% discount for all dreamers. Cause we all deserve a break.

I don't know which of their classmates told my daughters you could explode peeps in the microwave, but our entire kitchen smells like burnt sugar now. ...At least they had the thought to put a plate under the peeps first, so that's less cleanup than it could have been, still not the way I wanted to start spring break.

I think maybe taking them to see the horses would be a good idea, before they go on search for more candy around the house to turn into science experiments.

My daughter told me that her teacher told the class that 4 + 4 equals 8. And 5 + 3 equals 8. And 6 + 2 also equals 8.

Livvy has informed me that she no longer wishes to go back to pre-school until such time her teacher makes up her mind.

Oh fun. I have my own personal Warden. A big gun assigned to sneak up on me in the dead of night and try to startle me into breaking the laws of magic as per the White Council, so they can bring justice reigning down on me. Because I did break the Laws once, to save my own skin. But that's neither here nor there. Morgan wants me to fail, he wants to roast me.

And it doesn't escape notice he's more than capable of the murders I'm investigating. But then, technically, so am I. So that's not really much to go on. I just really don't like the guy, and he doesn't like me. It's clearly a mutual dislike. Problem is he's in a position of authority over me and one slip up could bring the Council down on me.

I doubt I'd get a slap on the wrist and a Warden looking over my shoulder a second time.

Lat night's dream showed me how my dream persona ended up getting involved in Karate. Saw some older kids go in the Cobra Kai dojo, and I went home and told my mom and even though my step dad was a royal jerk, he paid for me to join. And then adult me was teaching my own students, treating them the same way Syd treated me. It was something of an awakening, but I have a feeling dream me isn't going to change his ways. He's an ass, plain and simple.

First off, I would like to say that overall...Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a fun game.

However...

I dislike that the exercise equipment is mostly just for decoration. The workout bench is basically a bed and the exercise ball only bounces...at least make it a chair. I just want my little dude to workout. It’s not fair that I get to see the animals doing cardio and using small weights while I can’t do either.

Anyway, that’s my rant...sorry.

Looks like we found the missing kid. I swear, this dream thing, it's like a soap opera. Kid was in the lake. So that'll be one of the hardest conversations, when I go and tell his mom we found him.

I don't know, though. Something doesn't sit right. Spent the day at a facility in town, a lab. Watched the security tapes of the night Will disappeared. We had to call the search off because of rain, but there was no rain on the tapes. I don't know what the deal is, but those guys are lying.

And then we found Will in the lake. Seems a little suspicious to me.

Now that things have settled down around the house some with the holidays done I can announce that we’ve added another animal to our growing herd. Regulus’ mare foaled a beautiful pony that I’ve decided we’re going to keep. She represents the best of both of her parents. And has done wonders for calming down Shadowdancer just by being born. He’s a rather doting father on his little one. And the girls can now stroke his nose and feed him apples without Regulus or I having to watch him out of the corner of our eyes to make sure he doesn’t get spooked. We still have to be nearby but progress is still progress.

My kid just told me at breakfast today that she wished she could see Santa's naughty list. I asked her if she's worried that she's on it because of the epic tantrum she threw at dinner last night.

She said no. She wants to see who she can have the most fun with.

I think I'm in trouble.

I mean, I'm glad I didn't suffer any more torture or wake up with dream injuries, but. That one was a doozy.

Life on the ground isn't easy. It's not any better, really, now that there's adults around. Still kind of feels like we're on our own. I went with Finn to the village where the grounder we captured and interrogated said our people were. There were kids and most of the adults who were there were old or sick. One of them said it was a lie, that we were sent as revenge against them or something. To be honest, dream me wasn't listening. I was too focused on trying to keep Finn calm.

He started shooting. I don't know how many of him he killed. I tried to get him to stop, to listen. But he was so hell bent on finding 'our friends' that he couldn't see past the rage and disappointment that they weren't there. After his killing spree ended, Bellamy, Octavia, and Clarke showed up, obviously drawn to our location by the sound of gunfire.

So basically, he killed innocent people for nothing. Because our people aren't being held there. I can't wait to dream the fall out for this one. Because you know the grounders will retaliate. An entire village was nearly wiped out.

I'll never understand people, I think. If you have only one thing and there are multiple lanes open, including four self checkouts, why would you pick to stand behind the one person that has a full buggy? If he'd come up behind us BEFORE we started ringing, I probably would let him go through to be polite. But the cashier had already started ringing us up when he came up with one jar of salsa and took a look at our overflowing buggy and just went "Really?" Which... I didn't think much of, honestly. Our family has two grown men and two growing kids and we're doing our shopping for the week. We go through a LOT of food! I get it, I wouldn't want to stand behind us either.

But I'd have gone to look for a different line. And instead he just stood there behind us, staring, while he occasionally banged on the counter with his jar of salsa. Which then turned into him letting out these loud grunts that sounded like a dying donkey. I was trying to ignore it because I had the girls with me and I didn't want to make a scene. Well, more of a scene than he was already making.

...Meanwhile Laurel is definitely Amycus' daughter, because she finally turned around and looked at him and said "You're rude!"

And that's when I lost it. Because as much as I was trying to hold onto my composure and ignore his antics, I couldn't after that. Luckily he didn't say anything to her about what she said or to me as I'm laughing like an idiot. I think only because we were done and could make our escape back out into the parking lot before he could say anything. I really hope the cashier got to go on break after she was done with him.

It was fun explaining to my husband at dinner why our daughters kept going "UUUHHHGH" to each other and breaking out into giggles at dinner, though.

I took Livvy out for dinner tonight and we were driving home when she asked me if I could record my voice on one of those build-a-bear hearts next time we go.

I told her that of course I would, thinking that she wanted it for comfort or whatever.

She responds with "Sweet because we're going to put that inside you when you die and fill you full of stuffing."

She said we so that means she's run this idea by someone else who has agreed on this idea.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be honoured or really worried that my kid might be a psychopath.

I'm not sure whether to laugh or be horribly disappointed in Aslan. Regulus was checking to see if the turkey had fully thawed for tomorrow when Aslan attempted to steal it from him. He's normally a very well behaved dog but I guess his instincts got the better of his training when he saw the bird on the counter. He grabbed a hold of the loop on the bag and tried to drag it out of the kitchen before either of us could stop him. Apparently forgetting that he lives with an idiot cat who trips himself up let alone his dog brothers.

Apollo got under Aslan's paws and the two of them went tumbling down the hall with the turkey. It was pretty funny to watch even though I did have to scold him. Which I hate doing almost as much as I hate scolding Laurel and Madison.

So now everyone in the carnivale is avoiding me like I have some kind of plague. But Lods wanted to see me. He wanted me to drive him somewhere, said he wanted to show me something about Scudder. I feel for it and he was being deliberately obtuse so I threatened to turn around and go back, but a hell of a dust storm came up out of nowhere and Lods decided to get out of the truck, so I followed him, and he led me to a cabin and when I got angry and screamed at him, the storm stopped. It started up again when he said I did it, I made it stop. Then he burned me, but it healed within seconds, and he told me he could teach me how to use my gift, but I said no. I don't want it, I won't use it. The storm finally passed, and we went back to the carnivale, and I sulked off to be alone.

Turns out my dream persona got kicked out of the police academy. Probably because he's a cocky bastard who likes to act like he knows more than anyone else. But, I also think dream me is a pretty good detective. There's a detective who knows this, and blows me off anyway because apparently we had a thing. And it's over.

After I got arrested, and Eudora Patch let me go, I went to my little boiler room apartment at the gym. Someone was in there, but I knew it was one of my brothers. Luther. The one I like least. He has been harboring a suspicion that I killed our father, but now he knows I was boxing that night, and didn't do it. He and I aren't BFFs by any stretch, but it still hurts when your brother thinks, really believes, that you might have killed your dad.

For the record, my real dad isn't dead. That's only in the dreams.

For anyone who ever wonders where I got my particular sense of humor perhaps knowing what my father emailed me today will help with that - screenshots of where someone on Twitter called author Neil Gaiman a fake geek who had just started watching Doctor Who because the latest Doctor is a female and not a real geek because he hasn't been watching Doctor Who since the very beginning of the series. For those of you who aren't aware Doctor Who first aired in 1963. Mr. Gaiman, author of American Gods, Coraline, Stardust, Good Omens, The Graveyard Book, introduction to the first Doctor Who novelization and the Sandman Comics as well as several comics, was born in 1960, so he would have only been 3 when the series premiered.

But by all means yes the man who has won more science fiction and fantasy awards than I could possibly ever remember is a fake geek for not following a series that started while he was a toddler from the very beginning. Twitter never ceases to amuse me even when I don't have the luck to stumble across these little gems myself.

So, I might just forgo my writing for a bit. Most of my writing requires quite a bit of research and I just don't have the drive for that right now. I know there's friends I can ask, but I just can't.

Which means trying to find things to do because walking with this damn thing is painful and I just... need something.

I'm sure I'll find something else to preoccupy my mind. Or use old research, but anything new isn't bound to happen.

I have a seperate music playlist for when the kids are listening. It's mostly the same music as I usually listen to, just with some things removed the girls are too young for. I guess I didn't think over the songs on my twin safe list too carefully, because I forgot a few lines in "Sugar, We're going Down" (because no, my taste in music hasn't changed since I was in high school). I was worried they were going to ask what it meant and start a conversation I didn't want to have without both Amycus and I there, but instead Laurel just asked what language the song was in.

Thank you, Patrick, for singing the way same way that doctors write.

...Well that black box brought nothing good in my dreams. I released information - Division secrets - to the public and chaos. I released footage of a United States government ordered assassinations of a public leader. All to locate the remaining black boxes. I definitely didn’t think about consequences of these actions in these dreams but Nikita says that’s because Division teaches you to ignore those consequences. Division framed a CIA agent for what I released. Now we’re on our way to Chile to rescue the guy.

My plan was to release the footage so that Percy had no choice but to call the Engineer in. The Engineer is the one that built and encrypted these boxes. It worked just not in the best way.

Nikita does not like working with a partner. I don’t like playing by their rules. Our rescue mission goes to tell. Division shows up to murder us but we get saved by getting taken into custody by the US Army. Our day keeps getting better and better. 30,000 feet in the air and Division cleaners waiting for us on the ground. So the only way to avoid the cleaners was to jump out.

At least there were no injuries this time. Looks like I’m off to London to search for the Guardian of the next box.
