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.

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!
