Almost every night I experience a dream that, when shared with others, is described as strange, or worse. Now I will share them with the world, or whoever stumbles upon this blog. Feel free to analyze the dreams, I usually find the analysis more interesting than the actual dream.

Last night I dreamed I was in a huge house. It was getting to be late at night and my dad was asleep in one bedroom upstairs and my husband asleep in another room. My best friend stopped by because as she said, she thought it was odd that a light was on at 2am and wanted to make sure I was OK. We chatted on the couch a bit and then I headed up the stairs to go to bed. I noticed through a window a pickup truck slowly driving by and I recalled seeing that same truck several times throughout the day. It made me uncomfortable, I felt the person in this truck was up to something. Once in the upstairs hallway, I glanced down the stairs to the back door and saw the man creeping across the backyard. I shook my husband and told him to get his gun. He did and took a spot in the room facing the door. There was a couch that faced away from the bedroom door so I laid down on it and was whispering to my husband all the things I felt were odd and what all I had noticed. He was at the ready and all of a sudden I saw flashes from the gun and loud popping noises. I don't know if I passed out or fell asleep in the dream but I closed my eyes. When I came to I wasn't sure if maybe I had just dreamed about the truck and the shooting. I saw my husband asleep in the bed so I shook him and asked what happened. He said that the man had been taken care of. I asked if he had called the police and he said he was just waiting. Then I woke up.

Long Island, NY

Last night I dreamed we took a trip. We took a ferry to Long Island, NY. The ferry boat was huge with lots of interesting things on board. When the boat arrived at LI it docked in a huge building that housed a gift shop, a few restaurants, a comedy club, an arcade and a huge lobby area. It was outfitted and decorated quite nicely. I noticed a security guy on an upper level in a corner. I checked another corner and there was another security guard. There was one in each corner. They were all young, very well built, and outfitted more like SWAT team members rather than an average security guard. They continually looked out the huge windows, out into the air, and down into the water, then would scan the crowd, and also the ceiling of the building. We made our way to the comedy club and had a seat. Before long a young man came out and performed. He was pretty entertaining. After about an hour we moved on elsewhere in the building to have dinner. For some reason we were quite dressed up. I was wearing a big beautiful emerald color ball gown and accessorized with some beautiful sparkly jewelry. Dinner was served in a huge dining area that had large tall cushy booths as well as big long tables. We were seated in a booth in a corner along with two other couples. One couple was older, married almost 40 years, the other couple was closer to our age. We ate dinner and it took hours because there were about 6 courses. After dinner we roamed around the dining room chatting with other people and just taking in the surroundings. When we went back downstairs we were back in our regular clothes and we had assigned seating for some reason. Also confusing was my husband and I were not seated together, he was a few rows behind me. We both took out our phones and texted each other since we couldn't carry on a face to face conversation. I could tell we were moving then all of a sudden it felt like we were falling out of the sky. Just as everyone was about to scream, rock music started playing and the comedian from the club popped up and announced we were on a unique airplane that would take us for a tour. He continued to narrate as we flew. We were able to go through parts of the city and I remember being amazed at the brick buildings; their age, their texture, they character. We went out over the water, did some rolls so you saw everything from every angle. It was a crazy ride! Then I woke up.

Crazy College

Last night I dreamed a friend of mine and I went to a college to visit. In the dream we went to school there (even though in real life nothing at all was familiar about this place). Since the boys and girls dorms were separate, we went to the boys dorm first. We joked that's where we spent most of our time. Things had certainly changed. They had new technological gadgets in the lobby and a mini-gym right there in the lobby. They also had various 'elevator' options. There were elevators, escalators, stairs, a 'roller coaster car,' and a bouncy floor. The roller coaster car zig zagged it's way up and down the building more like a ride and the bouncy floor was a series of mattress types mats that fell fast and furious so you kinda bounced and free fell to your destination. We went upstairs and found that lockers were replaced by artsy old wooden doors, colorfully painted, and arranged interestingly. We wandered around a while then when it was time to go, we took the elevator all the way up to the top floor. Then we chose a different way down. I chose the bouncy floor and my friend chose the roller coaster cart. We were both in our positions, getting ready to descend, and we could see each other. We waved then I went plummeting down. I wasn't even touching the mat we were falling so fast. It was disconcerting but also pretty fun. After getting to the bottom we went outside. I woke up.

A Kidnapping and Shopping Spree

Last night I had two dreams. In the first, I was kidnapped. I was in a room that was pitch black and I could tell someone was there but I couldn't see well enough. Suddenly a face appeared but only for a second then everything went black. When I woke up I was in a trashed apartment. A face appeared. Their mouth was moving, they were speaking to me, but I couldn't understand a word. It sounded like Chinese or maybe Japanese but I wasn't sure. They looked angry and I really wish I understood what they wanted with me. I was there for a few days and then finally one day we had a communication breakthrough. And then we could communicate a little bit. I now knew this person was involved in an effort to use English speaking people to convince others that all was well by forcing them to write things. After several more days I was able to convince this person that I really couldn't do that because it was dishonest. This person seemed to understand and wasn't completely unreasonable. Then I woke up. When I fell back asleep I dreamed I was at a store that was having a huge sale. I was looking for some specific shoes so I started to wade in among the other hundreds of women excited by the sale. I found a pair of boots for $40 but wasn't having much luck finding the other kinds of shoes I wanted. Finally, as some of the people were clearing out of the store, I spotted some promising shoes. I made my way over to the rack and tried on a few pair. One would work, they weren't fabulous, but would work. I had higher hopes for another style. But that pair was in a case, under lock and key. They were on sale for a great price too so I was super excited to try them on. I called for some help but no employee came by. After I waited a few minutes I walked over to some people I thought could help me. They couldn't but they said they would tell someone who would be right over. I went back to the case to wait. After a few minutes I heard an announcement, the sale would be ending in 5 minutes. I panicked, where was the employee that was supposed to help me? I called again for someone, no one came. The sale ended. Everything I had shopped for, the great deals I had in my arms, were no good. I was frustrated. In a fit of anger I threw my stuff down on the floor and left. I knew I got bad looks but I didn't care. Then I woke up.

Summer Trauma

Last night I dreamed it was summer and my brother and I were on the deck. My kid was swimming in the pool and then got out to play. My mom came out with us and sat me down to eat a snack with her. I refused because she was about to eat a bug. It was a huge mosquito looking thing and she took a leg and offered it to me. I was keeping an eye on my child playing in the yard. There was an old A-frame ladder nearby and after reaching the top, I heard a loud thud. I heard the crying and I was so scared there was a serious injury. Then I woke up.

Last night I dreamed I was taking care of a little baby girl. One day, after being dropped off, we played for a bit then the phone rang. I didn't answer it but my dad did and he sounded mad. "I'm pulling up your drivers license right now!" he said. I was wondering what in the world was going on. Then he said he already called the police. When he got off the phone I asked what in the world that was about. He said it was a criminal doing cold calls trying to rip people off. During the conversation dad went online to look up the scam and found it to be just that, a scam, then went to a known criminals site. I was a little worried. The way he talked to this guy was pretty rough and that would only anger the criminal. A little while later I put the baby down for a nap and tucked her away in a different room. A few minutes later I heard a small noise. It sounded like the storm door but it was so faint. I peeked around the corner to look down the front hall and saw a young man, shirtless, covered with muscles and tattoos. His jeans were torn and he looked angry. He spotted me, gritted his teeth, and was growling. I backed away and my eyes were huge. I was trying to scream for somebody, people were downstairs, but I couldn't scream. I kept trying to yell but nothing would come out. Then I woke up.

Cats and House, MD

Last night I dreamed my cat (that passed away last year) was alive. I heard him meow but assumed it was another cat but when I looked down, it was him. I was so excited that he went to the food bowl to eat and was feeling better. The other thing I remember was hanging out with the cast of House but they weren't characters, they were actual doctors. We were in a big old very nice house with leather furniture and a huge outdoor garden. There were cases to be worked on so they all got to work.

Buying Makeup

Last night I dreamed I went to a big outdoor sale. I stopped at a makeup booth and took a look at the products. I was allowed to try them out by the woman who ran the booth, Katey Segal (aka Peggy Bundy). I knew she was up to something but I really did like a couple of the things I tried. I asked about the sale she had advertised. I quickly found out it wasn't as good as advertised but figured I could get around it. I grabbed the next two people waiting in line and we pooled our order so we could take advantage of the sale. I moved on to another booth that was selling various pillows. I liked some of the unique small decorative pillows and they were inexpensive so I bought a few. When I got home I emptied out my bags to look over what I had purchased and Joaquin Phoenix came by. He wasn't himself, however, he was mentally challenged. He picked up one of the pillows and made some strange observation about it. I told him it was OK and he walked away, laughing. I put everything away and then I woke up.

Old Friends

Last night I dreamed I met with a friend to see a show. We hadn't seen each other in a while so it was nice to hang out together. We didn't have enough money for two tickets (we realized when we showed up) so we snuck into another area and watched on jumbo screens nearby. We were having a good time, laughing and snacking and watching all the happenings, when I recognized somebody. I saw someone I used to have feelings for. I moved so he wouldn't notice me and as far as I could tell he didn't. After the show my friend had to go so I was left alone. I was looking around trying to find an easy way out that wouldn't get me noticed. I started walking and then paused to let a group of people pass by. While I was standing still someone came up behind me and wrapped their arms around my waist. I was startled but felt oddly calm. He let go enough for me to turn around and it was who I thought it was. I was afraid of what would happen next but he just smiled at me and said how happy he was to see me. We talked and caught up then he brought me over to a group of his friends and family. We all talked a bit then he offered to take me home. I accepted and we started walking to the parking lot. Then I woke up.

The other night I dreamed we moved to another state into a temporary house. We didn't fully unpack everything, just enough to get us through. We had some friends and their kids visit and found out my friend was pregnant again. Things were chaotic in the house with boxes everywhere and the kids playing but my friend and I tried to clear out a space to sit and talk. At one point she was sitting on the stairs trying to slide a box out of the way and when she did, a baby bunny startled her. We picked up the bunny wondering where in the world it could have come from. I saw a small box in another corner and went to get it to use as a little safe place to put the rabbit in. When I moved that box, another bunny hopped out. I looked for a slightly bigger box and when I found one there was a rabbit behind it too. The kids came running in each holding a bunny. Where were all these rabbits coming from? We bought a large cage and put them all together and started making a plan to get them all adopted by other families but until then we had fun cuddling all the soft fuzzy cute baby bunnies.

Stilt Skating

Last night I dreamed I was in my old neighborhood and found some roller stilts in the garage. These are stilts with small tires in them so you strap in your feet and 'skate' but you're much higher in the air. I decided to strap them on and skate through the neighborhood. Not far from the house, while trying to navigate a series of hills, I lost control and crashed into someone's driveway. I looked around and saw a huge family staring at me. There were toddlers all the up to adults, obviously in the middle of playing and having a good time, just staring at me. Then they sprung into action, helping me up, getting my skates, fixing them, and asking if I was hurt. I seemed OK so I tried telling them not to worry and tried to excuse myself from ruining their function. I skated away, heading back to the house, and got a phone call from a friend so I told him all about what had just happened. He laughed and laughed.

More Pizza and Waterslides

Last night I dreamed I was out with my dad. It was winter and we were going somewhere. We were using a sled but we weren't going fast enough on the parkway because it was too flat. So I got out our 3 wheeler; a Honda big red ATV like we had when I was a kid, just a tricked out version. But after doing all this I told my dad we'd be too late to do anything so we decided to just pick up a pizza and head back home.
The dream shifted to me sliding down a huge water slide and right before I splashed down in the pool below I woke up but when I woke up, I gasped for air, preparing to go into the water.

Drunken Birthdays

Last night I dreamed it was my birthday. I had $245 in my pocket and planned to go out with some friend from high school. One of my friends, however, noticed I was drunk and didn't want me to make any stupid decisions so he took my money. This upset me because I had plans to go out and eat and continue to drink with friends. He wanted to party too but felt it was better to keep my money. I kept after him to get my money back by being angry, funny, and begging, nothing worked though. After a few hours and I sobered up a bit he gave me my money and I gave him a big hug for looking out for me. Then we went out and partied.

Pizza and a Date

Last night I dreamed a local sub shop was also a pizza joint and my dad and I went there late one night after hanging out all evening. The place closed at 11pm on weeknights but we were just in time. There was hardly anybody in there and the employees were beginning to clean and get ready to close. There was a rather attractive guy in there and I glanced at him a few times and I noticed he looked at a me a couple of times. My dad suggested I go talk to him but I was too shy. After we ate and talked a bit we left and headed home. We didn't get home til about 2am and I went to bed. Meanwhile, my dad called the pizza/sub place and left a message. The next day I found out he left a message for the 'cute guy' and gave him our number and said he should call and ask me out. Then I woke up.

Brainless Romance Store

Last night I dreamed I was with my in laws watching TV. A commercial came on for a new store. It was a store for men to shop for the special person in their life easily and effectively. They showed the store complete with jewelry, flowers, chocolate, and other different unique gifts. My father in law laughed and dismissed it as ridiculously stupid. I understood his sentiment but smiled and said it wasn't entirely stupid. It certainly didn't suit him because he thinks differently and has his own ideas on how to show his wife she's special. But I explained a lot of men are not as creative and need a step by step guide (so to speak) on shopping for nice gifts. Of course I wouldn't really want anything from that store, I thought to myself, because I'm the one that says the one day NOT to bring me a dozen roses and a box of chocolate is Valentine's Day. Don't be brainless, put some effort into it. Our conversation back and forth continued all while my mother in law sat still, smiling. Then I woke up.

This and That

I've not been able to remember many dreams lately just bits and pieces. It's not unusual to see planes and helicopters where my parents live but I dreamed a helicopter made several passes over the house, each time flying lower. Finally it was so low it was unmistakable the helicopter wanted to see inside the house. My family (parents, husband, brother) all huddled in the dining room trying to figure out why this was happening. I took my camera and snapped several pictures of the helicopter hovering right outside the window. Another dream involved walking down a city street and someone rushing at me. I instinctively punched them three times and smashed his face three times. I then ran to the other side of the street and was joined by someone who knew what was going on and guided me into a small private building. It was a small club with a large pool and a lazy river. I was confused but there were several people gathered at a table in red swimsuits and they looked concerned. I told them what had happened and they seemed to explain what was happening. We had to come up with a way to escape. I woke up.

School and Sad News

Last night I dreamed I was younger, in high school, and went to the elementary school on campus to check out a book for my high school boyfriend's little sister. But it wasn't a book, it was a pair of tights and a matching scarf. I walked through the halls and said hello to teachers and staff I knew. The dream changed to a big outdoor concert/party that was ending. As we packed up our camping chairs we said goodbye to a few friends and headed out. We had to walk quite a ways to get to our vehicle. As we were loading our stuff into the car my cell phone rang, it was my mother in law. My husband's dad died, she said. I was stunned and I gave the phone to my husband and we were both upset. Then I woke up.

Jogs and Barns

Last night I dreamed I went for a jog, a really long jog, with a cigarette. I don't smoke anymore so that is doubly odd. I also dreamed across the street from my parent's house, in the field, was a barn that belonged to a friend. He was trying to determine exactly how he was going to use the barn but my father in law offered to buy it from him. My friend declined but that night, during a terrible storm, the barn collapsed. The next day I called my friend and told him to come over so he could see what happened. He was terribly upset but my father in law came along and again offered to purchase the barn. I woke up.

House Shopping

Last night I dreamed we were shopping for a house in another state. Because the house was in X county the insurance would be X amount but we were quoted at Y amount. We did not understand why it was so much more until our real estate agent called and said the house wasn't in X county but in Y county. Y county had unsafe drinking water hence the more expensive rate. That's all I can remember of the dream.

Makeup, a snake, and a show

Last night I dreamed I was in a drug store and looking at all the cosmetics. Only one brand offered samples of their products and I was having a good time thoroughly looking through each item and testing it out. My friend came through the doors and spotted me so she joined me in testing all the makeup items. The dream changed to a backyard at night. There was a truck, like a small moving truck, and there was something inside. The person on the back porch told me to be careful so I approached the truck slowly wondering what inside the truck could be so scary. I opened the back and immediately saw the cause for her concern: it was a huge snake. After I lifted the back the snake made its way to fresh air and for fear the snake might react to sudden moves, I didn't try to close the truck. The snake slowly made its way out of the truck and since it blended in with the surroundings and it was night, it pretty much disappeared. I didn't know what to do. I worried the snake could hurt a child or cause some fright to an adult. I called 3 departments of animal control and waited for their arrival while the woman on the porch yelled at me that it was my job to find the snake and make sure it got back into the truck. Then the dream shifted again and I was in a large set of bleachers waiting for a stage and water show to start. It was Tangled, on stage and water. I spotted a couple of friends in the crowd and went over to say 'Hi.' After the show I headed home but realized the location of the show and the way home were not at all familiar to me. I thought I had it figured out but was quite nervous once I turned down a long dark back road. Then I woke up.

Magic ATMs and Thanksgiving

The other night I dreamed about a bank that would count $1 as $76. If you placed your dollar bills into a particular envelope and deposited it into a special ATM, you would have $76 for every $1 you put in. You couldn't use five dollar bills or anything other than singles and scam artists started trying to replicate the ATMs so you had to be careful. The ATMs were generally near fast food restaurants and after ordering at a Wendy's I decided to deposit my stash of one dollar bills. I looked over the envelope and ATM and found everything in order so I put my money in. Later I checked my account and sure enough all the singles had been changed to $76 each. A few days later my husband accumulated a few singles and wanted to deposit them. We were out, near a Taco Bell, and he spotted an ATM. I went over to look at it and it didn't seem right. It was different than the ones I'd used before. I told him I didn't think we should use it, it might be a fake. He dismissed my concern and was loading the ones into the envelope, which also looked fishy, and I told him there was another ATM nearby that I knew for sure was legit and asked to go there. He said there was no need, this was fine, and he dropped the envelope in. Within minutes, some thugs showed up with a gym bag, cracked open the wall, and loaded all the money into the bag then took off. The dream then changed to a big get together in a dining hall. It was Thanksgiving and hundreds of people were gathered to eat. Most people brought dishes to add to the buffet. There were several sweet potato dishes, mashed potatoes, turkeys, and vegetables. We ate in shifts. X amount of people could go to the food table then return to their seats to eat while the next group of people went to get their food. It was quite interesting but everyone was fed. Then I woke up.

Dinner and Appliances

Last night I dreamed I came home to find a guy I went to high school with cooking dinner for my family, including my brother and sister in law. The ingredients he had laying around looked odd and the smells weren't all that appetizing but it sure did look good. I wandered around the house and since it wasn't my house (in real life) I was interested in it's layout. I decided the laundry room needed a makeover so the next day I went to a local appliance store and asked for help finding top loader washers and matching driers. The store was huge so it took quite some time to shop and compare. I was pretty certain which set I wanted but wanted to sleep on it so I decided to poke around the store to see what all they had. I was enjoying looking around but realized I was late for another appointment so I left. Then I woke up.

Last night I had a brief dream within a dream. My husband and I took a road trip and at a toll I gave the man my money and based on the change he gave me the toll cost over $5. I told him that couldn't be right, the charge was closer to $2. He did some figuring then in a hurry handed me more money to correct the change amount. I drove away and realized he paid me to go through the toll rather than the other way around. At one point we pulled off at an exit to use the bathroom and get something to eat. As we crossed over a bridge and descended into this town I told my husband, "I had a dream just like this the other night, deja vu!" and I could recall the details of the dream and was spotting them as they happened. After using the bathroom we walked down a street headed to a fast food place to get a little food and Betty White was there. She stopped and asked us a question. As she walked away I kept poking my husband saying, "Is that really who I think it is?!" Suddenly the dream changed and I was with my parents and my daughter at an amusement park near a beach. We were walking around looking at all the sights. We heard there would be a show soon of a stuntman on an airplane. We were trying to figure out exactly where to go for the show but realized it wouldn't start for quite some time so we went into a restaurant and chose a table. There were two choices: a very small table (not even really big enough for two people) or a very long large booth. We took the booth then laughed at how we had to strain to talk to each other. The dream changed again and I was working on the farm I had worked at as a young teen. While working I cut myself and went to a clinic to get looked at. While waiting, Jason Alexander (aka George Costanza) was causing a scene with a doctor. He was complaining that his medication wasn't right. During the scuffle I was called back to see the doctor. He determined I needed stitches and went to get his supplies and a nurse to help. While waiting, I peeked out the door to see if the drama was over. It wasn't. He actually came to my room and was explaining why he was so upset. I told him to just calm down and take a seat, which he did, and I listened as he recapped all that had happened. At first I thought maybe he was just a little crazy but after listening to him tell the whole story, it made sense. I told him I would help him and he looked so thrilled and relieved. The doctor returned and I woke up.

Grocery Store Injury

I don't remember many details of this dream but my husband and I were living in the back of a grocery store. The store was old and not very big with exposed concrete floors, older equipment, and a disjointed layout. One day while walking through the store, I was barefoot and stepped on something. We stopped to look at my foot and found a large plastic 'toothpick' stuck in my heel (it was shaped like a sword, the kind sandwich shops use to keep a club sandwich together or the wrapper on the sandwich). My husband pulled it out of my foot and it was covered in blood and goo. I hobbled around the store with him looking for juice. That's all I remember.

A Wedding, Politics, and Memories

I dreamed a couple of friends of mine renewed their vows. They had another wedding ceremony. She walked down the aisle in a very plain ordinary dress and during the ceremony changed into a fancy gown that was blue. I took pictures throughout the day and during the reception I met a southern politician. When we left we went to a BBQ place and hung out and talked. We talked for hours then we took a limo ride around town. We went across the bridge into Canada and back talking the whole time. When I got back home I went to get my camera and pictures I had taken. I found boxes of videos and pictures from years ago. I watched them and was amazed at what was on the videos. I decided to hang onto it all and have my dad copy all the videos onto DVDs. I woke up.

Bunnies, Buddy, and a Castle

Last night I dreamed I was eating cookies with giant bunnies. The cookies were Thin Mints and the rabbits stood on their back legs. We were in a huge fun house surrounded by mirrors and we were laughing hysterically. The dream changed to a subdivision and I was helping unload boxes. We couldn't easily fit the huge moving truck near the house but I saw Buddy (from Cake Boss) drive by and I figured he drives a delivery truck and has to park in tight spaces so he could help us. Then the dream shifted to the top room of a castle. There were two guys and a girl in the room with me and none of us knew where we were or how we got there. We started trying to get to know each other. The two guys were from Canada and the girl was from Ithaca, NY. I woke up.

Doctors and Pianos

Last night I dreamed I was a doctor, just starting out, and a friend had me working his clinic. The clinic was in my hometown so I knew several people that worked or were patients there. One day a woman I knew was in the waiting room and I called her into the exam room. She didn't know me at first but when I told her who I was she was thrilled. I explained to her that if she was at all uncomfortable with me examining her it wouldn't be a problem to have a different doctor see her. She said it was fine and I started asking questions. She then asked me a bizarre question and as I was trying to figure out a way to answer her she jumped up from the exam table and grabbed the jar of cotton balls, throwing them at me one at a time. I got up and opened the door and she made her way through the waiting room yelling about something nobody understood. Security came and the doctor in charge came and helped subdue her. I was baffled until another doctor explained she has a long history of mental illness and you never know what she'll do next. I was so sad for her. On a break I went with another doctor for lunch and a walk around the clinic building. The building was quite large and housed an auditorium, a play area, as well as a music store in addition to the clinic. In the auditorium was a child beauty pageant going on so we went to the music store. The store was really big and sold just about everything pertaining to music. I was admiring a large harp on display when someone approached me with a question. I happened to know the answer and she was very grateful for the information. The owner heard this exchange and offered me a job working in the store. I explained that I was a doctor working the clinic and he promised to work around my schedule. I thought about it and realized between both jobs I could save a lot of money so I accepted. A few days later, after my shift in the clinic, I showed up for work at the store. I had to help deliver a piano to a customer's home. Of course the house was huge and very nice but nobody answered the door. I double checked with the delivery person that this was the arranged time and the customer knew we would be there. Everything checked out so I continued knocking and ringing the doorbell. Nobody came to the door. I noticed the door to the garage was open slightly so I checked it, it swung right open. I looked at the delivery person with a 'should I or shouldn't I' look and feared something had happened to the customer. In the garage was a pool table, a ping pong table, and weight lifting equipment. The garage itself was huge and there was no obvious doorway to the actual house. Once I found a door and opened it, it led downstairs. I could hear voices off in the distance. When I got down to the basement there was a playroom, a bathroom, a snack machine and a pop machine. There were children playing but I didn't see any adults. I asked one of the older kids who was watching them and he pointed to the bathroom (the bathroom door was shut). I waited until someone emerged and I explained I had a piano for them. Then I woke up.

Under the Boardwalk

Last night I dreamed I was out with a group of girls I knew from being involved in a playgroup when my daughter was young. In the dream we went to Denny's for breakfast then out to a small river. There was a long walkway constructed along the shore as well as in the river and we went for a long walk. At one point one of the girls thought she'd scare the rest of us by acting like was trapped and shouted to us that she couldn't swim. Of course she wasn't stuck but moments later, when she slipped off of the boardwalk, we realized her not knowing how to swim was real. We rushed to help her and she was terrified but we got her back on the walkway. The dream changed to being outside in the athletic field of a high school. There was a track, mats, and sports equipment. I also spotted some of my high school teachers and coaches (even though the setting wasn't my high school). I was on a bus but didn't know why. I wasn't on a team, I wasn't a teacher, why was on I this bus? As the bus parked and I got I got off the bus, I walked slowly toward a teacher. Everything was happening in slow motion. Why? I woke up.

Shoes and Heidi Klum

Last night I dreamed I went shopping with a couple of friends. We went to a mall with expensive boutiques and we were shoe shopping. I remember passing by a certain store that didn't sell much but had a long line out front. They served food at the front of the store, had very few items and racks inside, but in the back was a large photographer's studio. He was searching for models of any sort. We passed by then decided to go into a neighboring shoe store. We headed to the clearance section in the back and started trying on shoes and boots. At one point an employee came out from the back to complain that we were being too girly. We finished looking and my friend decided to buy a pair so we headed for the checkout. I went to the line that was smallest but when I turned to say something to my friend, she wasn't there. They were way back in a long check out line. The cashier asked if she could help me and I motioned for my friend to come up. Then some woman with a fake ponytail showed up next to me and explained that she sells Avon and wanted to give this woman a deal. I politely shooed her away and my friend bought her shoes. The dream then shifted into a party. I was at a baby shower. Heidi Klum's baby shower. Then I realized the card I got seemed pretty lame and I was trying to think of a way to replace it without being noticed. Anyway, the place was gorgeous and the food was delicious. I had a great time, except for that card...I woke up.

Boat Show

Last night I dreamed I was with a friend in a small town in Ohio. We were in a touristy area and found a place for lunch. There were alot of people there so we figured it must be pretty good. We waited in line and as we shuffled in we noticed the water, boats, and a boardwalk. If you wanted their basic lunch (sandwiches and sides) you could follow along the boardwalk and take a seat near a station. At each station was lunch meat, including their specialty green roast beef, condiments, sides, and drinks. If you wanted something a la cart from the menu you were seated in a different area. We found a seat and then the announcement started making its way around the room; the audience was encouraged to participate in their show. My friend, who is not at all shy, volunteered and off he went down the boardwalk. He was talking with an employee who was explaining everything to him. As he reached a dock and a boat, the employee jumped into the water and was pulling the boat with a rope. He told my friend to get in the boat but then turned to talk to someone in the water with him. As he did, he pulled the boat with him. This happened just as my friend was trying to jump into the boat. He just missed it and ended up in the water. I couldn't help but laugh and as he resurfaced he was laughing too. Once everything was situated and people were in boats and some in the water, the show began. The storyline was something akin to local pirates and everyone had a good time. After lunch and the show, I woke up!

Mish Mash

Last night I didn't dream a flowing story-line dream. I rather had snippets of dreams. In one, I was helping behind the scenes of a play. I had to help one of the actresses hit her mark and feed her the lines when necessary. This actress was such a diva and drove everybody nuts. One evening during rehearsals, because she wanted everything to be perfect, we were having to stay very very late. Finally the director said it was 5.30am. I was so angry, I stood up, went directly to her, and slapped her in the face then walked out. The next dream was 30 miles off the coast of Florida on a small private island. Several friends and I were hanging out, enjoying the sun and water when we noticed a jellyfish that was swimming directly to my mom. She tried swimming out of it's path but it was coming right at her. I looked over and noticed a big guy, tanless, in shorts and he had ankle tattoos. He was talking into a small microphone and saying, "left, right, straight, right." He was controlling the 'jellyfish.' I threw a sharp object at him so he couldn't speak and then we got out of the water. In the next dream, I was dropped off in a parking lot assuming I could ride home with my dad. I saw my dad's truck in the parking lot so I figured I could track him down in the store. I had to use the bathroom anyway so I rushed inside, used the bathroom, grabbed a few grocery items, and was scanning the store for my dad. I didn't see him so I called his cell phone. When he answered I could tell there was alot of background noise and I asked where he was. He was about two hours away, in the same store, but at a different location. I was completely confused. In the last brief dream I had, I was helping to test a hearing device. I went to the office of the inventor and spoke with a woman at the front desk. She said he was out of the office for now and she didn't have any other information for me. I was a little frustrated but she couldn't help me. He suddenly showed up, made quite an entrance into the office with his friendly loud voice. It was my high school biology teacher. He looked surprised but pleased by my being there and he invited me into his office. I started to tell him about my findings and he just grabbed me and started ballroom dancing me around the room. Then I woke up.

Under Attack, Sort Of

Last night I dreamed while washing dishes I noticed four chipmunks run into the yard. They were followed by a raccoon and a fox. It seemed like the fox leaned over to the coon and was talking into his ear. It raised a paw and pointed to the house. I was wondering what in the world that could mean so I went and got my brother and my husband. By the time we returned to the window, the animals were gone but there were 6 people in the yard throwing things at the house. They made their way all the way around the house and they were yelling. They went around the house again, this time squirting water from large water guns. I couldn't understand who would do this or why. Shortly after they finally went away I received instant messages on Facebook. The screen name was Berry Berries and the messages were full of nonsensical rants. I didn't understand why the person was angry but based on some of the complaints I started realizing who all was involved. Then I woke up.

Valentine's Day Surprise

Last night I dreamed my husband and I went on a trip for Valentines day. We reserved a hotel room for two nights and after dropping off our luggage we started exploring the town. We toured a power plant and had alot of fun doing all the experiments. Then we went to a mall. This mall was huge! It was 5 stories high and had hundreds and hundreds of stores from all over the world. It was on the 5th floor that I received my Valentines surprise. There were several tables set up and other people enjoying a delicious looking gourmet dinner. I was excited and hungry so I really enjoyed dinner. After dinner everybody started to mingle and we met a few other couples. Then the women were told to sit down and relax. The men started presenting gifts, toasts, and other surprises for their significant other. I couldn't believe it, some of the gifts and speeches were adorable and so lovely. I was getting more excited to see what my gift was! Every time one man finished, I'd hope my husband would step up next. But he didn't. This time? No. OK, surely it will be this time. No. And I thought, 'Don't tell me I'm last! He knows how hard it is to wait for surprises! No way is he making me last.' Oh he did. When he showed up, he gave me a card and said he loved me. I was all smiles. Then he sat down. That was it. I was confused. Not that his card or saying he loved me wasn't nice, it was. But after witnessing what I had from all the other men and couples, I anticipated more so was confused. We were then back in the shopping area of the mall and he said he wanted to check out a particular store but I wanted to explore some other things. We split up and agreed to meet at a certain time. I went off to check out some stores then took a seat on a bench to 'people watch.' I then realized the time and started heading back but got disoriented. I got a text asking where I was and then figured out how to get back so I headed to the hotel. Then I woke up.

Fun House Mall

Last night I dreamed I had a handicapped friend who wanted to go to the mall. He was in a wheelchair and had a wheelchair accessible van so getting to the mall was no problem. We had to find the most easily handicap accessible entrance and after that we just enjoyed the shopping. After exhausting the stores on the lower level my friend wanted to go the second level. We started looking for an elevator. We kept finding escalators but that just wouldn't work, we needed an elevator. I was getting pretty upset that the mall didn't have easily found elevators or ways for the handicapped to get upstairs. After looking for quite some time I was infuriated. I approached mall management was angry about the situation. I was finally directed down a hallway so off we went. There were many twists and turns to this hallway and it was cluttered with junk. I was still quite angry that just going upstairs was so difficult. We came around a corner and saw Charo, in full costume, dancing in the hallway. It was bizarre but pretty funny. She approached my friend and chatted a few minutes then we headed for the elevator. We entered and I breathed a sigh of relief. But that didn't last long. There was something about the elevator that looked odd. All of a sudden we were going down, falling, quickly. It stopped and we were suddenly going up, fast. I didn't know what to think bu I was scared for our safety. Once the doors opened we emerged from the elevator to see cameras and a man with a microphone. We were on some hidden video show. I was so angry I could have spit nails at this 'host' but I didn't say anything. I answered his questions then whispered a question in his ear, "How do we get out of here?" He just looked around and motioned back to the elevator. I figured it was worth a shot so I turned my friend around and we went back into the elevator. It went up and it went down and back up again and when the doors opened we were outside. That was fine, at least we were out of that mall. I woke up.

Last night I dreamed a sort of Groundhog Day meets Camelot dream. At my parent's house (which was a small castle) I was with several other girls outside in the yard and there were men on horses. I was in some sort of danger and a knight came to rescue me. As he rode past very quickly he was trying to grab me to get me onto his horse. He missed. I was attacked my some unseen creature. The dream started over and I was again in danger and the knight sped toward me and threw himself off the horse to shelter me. He missed and I was attacked. The dream again started over and I was in danger. The knight rode as fast as he could and abruptly stopped and threw me onto the horse and slapped the horse so he'd run. The knight stayed and fought the creature but died. The dream started over again and this time the knight ran to me on foot, picked me up, and called for a horse. We both rode off as fast as we could. I woke up.

ER Reunions

Last night I dreamed I was in the ER to check on a friend (someone I went to middle school with). While in the waiting room another man was brought it and he had the exact same name as my friend and was brought it for the exact same problem. I was instantly worried that staff might confuse the two so I immediately went to a nurse and started explaining what I'd witnessed and tried to come up with a way to tell the two apart. To take my mind off of my friend's condition, I went to the mall and walked around a little bit. (This mall is no longer in existence.) I was walking around and noticed a guy in the food court that seemed familiar. I couldn't tell if it really was who I thought it was so I decided to call out his name. (I went to camp with this friend.) I did and he looked at me and after a moment said my name. We both smiled and hugged each other, surprised to see each other after so many years. He was there with his dad so I went over and talked to his father a few moments. I woke up.

Water Wars and Shopping

Last night I dreamed I went to a restaurant/bar by myself. I was worried I'd look like such a loser but I was really in the mood for the food at this place. Things were quite active this night, the place was packed and a football game was on. I didn't have to wait though because a table for one was readily available. I tried not to make eye contact with anybody being shown to my table. I sat down and started looking at the menu when something started happening in the kitchen. Whatever the hubbub was started spilling out into the restaurant. I found myself being bumped into by the kitchen staff and an airplane beverage cart. The floor gave way and we fell a few stories below and it was water. The delivery ship set sail and we swam to it. We were out to sea within minutes and we were being chased by bad people. The dishwasher from the restaurant strapped a small engine to the beverage cart and two of us got onto it and started to try escaping. It was working! The dream changed to being in the house of some friends of my family. Walking into their master bedroom I was in awe of their walk in closets. They stretched the length of an entire wall! I noticed the ceiling beams were exposed and they laid shelving boards across them and put boxes up there. I noticed all of the interesting outfits and shoes hanging all over the room, she'd just been shopping. I was in love with a certain pair of red heels. I stopped by a consignment store (mostly of children's stuff) and was shopping for a special tricycle, one for an adult with a built in child seat in the back. My little girl was just about 10 months old and I thought it would be fun go on bike rides. My mom was with me and we picked one out. I then found myself in a grocery store and ran into my cousin in the check-out line. We started to talk but didn't want to hold anybody up so it was a disjointed conversation but she invited me over to her house. As I was finishing up my business in the store I ran into my other cousin (the previous one's brother). He was very exciting to see me, gave me a huge hug and wanted me to meet him later for drinks. I told him his sister invited me to her house and he should come too. He seemed hesitant but said he'd be there. It was summertime so my cousin had a small pool set up in the backyard and we all had a good time playing and talking. That was it, I woke up.

Giant Me

Last night my dream started in a very Gulliver's Travels type feel. I dreamed I fell out of the sky into a desert village that had several houses built into rock cliffs. I felt bad that my large body destroyed so many small houses. I actually found a house that was my size so I couldn't help but investigate. I went in, thinking it was empty, and was startled to find a friend of my mother's. She explained she owned the house and I wondered why she owned a house in a mini-village. I liked the house very much, felt very cozy, and she and I had a good time looking at photo albums and talking about all the memories she's had in the house. The only thing I didn't like was one bedroom being adjoined to another bedroom and it had no access to the hallway, you had to go through one room to get to the other. But I looked at the design and structure and determined I could make a door from the hallway. That was it for the dream, I woke up.

Last night I dreamed I was hanging out with my brother and sister-in-law who, for some rason, lived in a large old sparcely furnished house. They also had several dogs, several large breed loud dogs. There was a substantial back yard so the dogs spent alot of time outside. I was helping them get ready because we all had plans to go out. Just as we were ready to leave my brother got a call on his cell phone. It was somebody complaining about his dog, that he'd destroyed something. We went to the backyard and the neighbor whose yard backed up to my brother's had quite a collection of junk on his property. One thing was an old waterbed that had been left near a shed right on the property lines. It looked like the dog had chewed through parts of the bed. We didn't understand what the big deal was; on one hand, yes, the dog helped to destroy the bed. On the other hand, there evidently were no big plans to use this bed since it's been left outside in the weather for weeks so what was some chewing going to take away from it? We finally left to go out and there was some mysterious phone calls coming into my brother's and sister-in-law's phones. Whenever I asked about the strange sounding conversations he'd tell me not to worry about it. We arrived at a very fancy building in the middle of a park area and my brother stopped the car, turned to me, and said, "I'm going to explain something to you. You need to do something but not ask questions. This is an FBI apartment building. You need to go inside to address 4591 and get something for me. That's it." I didn't understand but before I could ask anything, I was outside of the car trying to figure out how to get inside the building. You couldn't just walk through the front doors, you had to have a special key and code to enter. I quickly figured it out and I was in the lobby. The building was quite ornate and I was looking for a way to get some direction without looking like I was lost. I needed to blend in so I just started down a hallway and started figuring things out as I went. At one point I found myself in a large bathroom, half for boys, the other for girls, but I accidently discovered it had trap doors and false walls in case of emergencies an escape could be made. I was able to find my way out of the bathroom and located the correct address. As I sat in the hallway, trying to figure out how to get access inside the apartment, my cell phone beeped - I had a text message. It was from my ex-husband. He said he was close by and he wanted to see me. I woke up.

Music Lessons

The other night I dreamed a classmate from high school and I went to take a class at our old high school. This class was taught by a former teacher from our school and the first night of class we were late. I apologized and later when he had a moment, we talked for a bit. The next class, my orchestra instructor from elementary school was there. I was surprised to see her and she kept talking about orchestra and reminding me about music. I looked at her funny and she said she wanted me to come back to orchestra and play again. I told her I really didn't think I could even though I've missed it over the years. She asked if she could talk to me in private and I agreed. I thought we'd step out into the hallway but we continued walking down the hall, then out the door, across the street, into another building, and up the stairs. I was wondering where in the world we were going and why we were going to far away but listened to all she had to say. I looked around and realized we were in a waiting room for a doctor's office, a pediatrician. My mother worked there, as a nurse, and she stepped out and said hello. My ochestra instructor continued on about trying to convince me to play the violin again and I listened and listened, then I woke up.

Hot Air Balloons, Floors, and Murderers

Last night I dreamed the girl that lived a few doors down when I was growing up got really into hot air ballooning. She took hot air balloon rides daily and was trying to perform dangerous stunts. One day, while looking out the window, I noticed her up in the sky. All of a sudden the lower portion of the balloon twisted and it sent the basket swirling around. My eyes grew wide, hoping she was OK, but I couldn't see her anymore because she drifted behind some trees. The dream shifted into my parent's house and I was helping them remodel. We had pulled up the carpet in the living room, dininig room, and stairs, exposing the hardwood, and pulled up the kitchen floor. The wood needed to be refinished so we started working on that but because it was Christmas time and we had family get togethers we couldn't spend much time working on the floors. Someone brought some Christmas presents and laid them on the floor. The dream changed to a college campus. I was in college and preparing for a special dinner for students when the school went on lock-down because of an escaped prisoner, a killer. It was snowing outside and there was already several inches on the ground. For some reason, I went outside, then found myself running from this killer. I was so upset it had been snowing because it was easy for him to follow me, just following my tracks in the snow. I was trying to figure out what to do next but I woke up.

Prickle Bushes

Last night I dreamed I was on my porch getting my daughter on the bus to school. It was warm outside and since I didn't plan on leaving my porch, I was barefoot. I was holding something in my hand and it dropped onto the porch. I picked it up but when I did something hurt my hand, it stung. I took a closer look at the concrete and noticed a squirming centipede. I took another look at my hand and noticed a small squirmy thing in my skin. I was surprised because I didn't know those animals could 'sting' and leave body parts behind. I started to pull it out but when I tried I could see a large squirming thing under my skin. It was like something out of Alien and I wanted to scream but kept calm and pushed and pinched until I could get it out. My neighbor was out on her porch with her younger daughter in her arms. Our kids got on the bus and we waved goodbye. I chatted with my neighbor a minute then went back inside to get something for her. When I came back out, she was no longer outside. I figured she must have had to go back in because her child needed something so I decided to go over and knock on her door. There wasn't much yard between our houses so I stayed barefoot and climbed down off my porch. I glanced down briefly at what I had in my hand and when I did I stepped on something that sent holy mortal pain through my left foot. I looked down and saw I had stepped into a large prickle bush and a string of Christmas lights, now broken. My neighbor's husband had been taking down the Christmas lights from their house over the past few days and was leaving the strands in the yard until he was completely finished. I lifted my foot up, thinking I would stop alot of the pain by getting it out of the prickles and broken glass, but my foot was stuck somehow. I wanted to scream and cry but again tried to remain calm and started trying to make noise so my neighbor would come outside. I hit the house, near her window, called her name and couldn't help but cry a little. She came outside and took one look at me and knew I was in some serious pain. She helped pull me out of the bush and sat me down in a chair on her porch. She then went inside to get some tweezers and helped pull the prickles out of my foot. I either woke up briefly or the dream shifted but I then found myself in my daughter's school. There were lots of parents in the building and it was the last day of school before a holiday break of some kind. I was not surprised but frustrated that my daughter's teacher, as well as several others, were substitutes. I thought to myself, 'If they don't want the kids to think of pre-holiday days as throw away days, why don't the teachers?!' I also didn't care for my child's sub because he was cranky and snooty. He assigned the class 16 pages of homework to be completed over the break. I apologized for being a little bit late, explaining I had injured myself that morning and that slowed me down. He seemed to not care whatsoever and I thought how much his attitude stunk. After visiting with my child's class a bit, I went back into the hallways where there were tables of snacks set up. I started saying hello to other parents and got a bite to eat. I then woke up.

Last night I dreamed I went on a field trip, a field trip with a group of adults, unlike any field trip! We went to a woods area and as we were milling around, trying to figure out exactly where to go next, I noticed my neighbor, dressed in all black. He had red paint on his face and long fingernails. I approached him to talk but he smelled really bad. He started waving his arms around and under his outstretched arms there was a cloud of mist or fog building. We didn't know what to do but it was certainly scaring us. A dog started barking and as we turned to look, my neighbor disappeared. We entered a strange looking house and started filling each room. I went upstairs with some others and since there were no lights, it was hard to see. The floors were bare natural wood and the house was very old. There wasn't any furniture in the place but it was full of spiderwebs and an odd smell. Before long, each room was packed with people and we could hear horrible noises but didn't know where they were coming from. I wanted to get out of the house and was trying to so squeeze around people and find the stairs to get out but it was taking forever to move around and I couldn't move fast enough. I woke up before I could get out of the house.

A Friend's Wedding

Last night I dreamed friends of mine from high school wanted to renew their wedding vows. They basically re-did their wedding but made it a huge production that almost anyone could come to. They built special bleachers, several tiers, that could swivel and shift even when full of people. This allowed everyone to see all the events of the ceremony without leaving your seat. The ceremony was outdoors, beautiful, they served amazing food and the weather was wonderful. I had a great time, then I woke up!


The other night I dreamed I was an ATF agent involved in a bust of a drug house. I don't remember many details but I remember the feeling of the weight of my gear, standing outside the house, in the heat, just wanting it to be over. That dream didn't last long.
