Left out.

Dream Setting:

Shopping in a department store with one of my best friends.

My Dream:

My friend and I needed some girl time so we decided to go shopping. I needed a dress pattern specifically. We ended up going to this all in one stop shop that is not walmart. Maybe a mom and pop style shop. We grabbed a cart and were walking around seeing what was in the store. During our shopping trip we get to catch up about the things going on in our lives. My friends big thing was that she was pregnant! (This particular friend is trying not to get pregnant in real life. Her and her husband are wanting to wait a few more years.) As we were walking through the store we found a pattern for the dress I wanted and then went to place the pattern in the cart. When I reached down I saw a baby. The baby she was pregnant with. The baby was in the cart, we must have been shopping for a good 7 months because my friend was no more than 3 months along when she told me and this baby was a full term baby. I was shocked and said, “you had your baby!” and she agreed and told me the name. She had named it the same name as my other friends baby. My two best friends now have babies that are named the same thing. The next thing I remember in the dream was mentioning that this Christmas would be his first! Then I thought of how left out I was. The only one without a baby and I actually wanted a baby. I was jealous that my friend that didn’t want a baby for another handful of years had a baby and I, the one that wanted a baby but couldn’t have one yet, didn’t have a baby. We left the store, her with her new baby and me without one. A friend from church picked me up and I went to help him with some thing at his house that apparently only girls know how to do. Like sewing something he ripped or something of that nature. When I got out of his car the neighbor told me to put on socks because the whole street was having a foot fungus problem. I had some socks in my purse that I put on. We went inside and he showed me his problem and I went to the bathroom. When I came out my socks had disappeared and another friend from church was there. We worked on the project and then they took me home. It was a beautiful sunny day.

The Break In

Dream Setting:

I was renting a house, my sisters and mother lived with me.

My dream:

It was night time, I had gone to bed. My family was not home. I was home alone. It must have been after midnight when I hear a knock on the door. A girls worst nightmare, to be caught in her skivvy’s in the middle of the night, alone. I grab a robe and my hand gun and cautiously answer the door. It is a man demanding to come in this is his apartment. I pull out the gun and tell him he is not coming in, I rent this apartment and he can talk to the landlord. I meant business. He tries to push through but I lift that gun and aim right at him and tell him to leave. I shut and lock the door I assume he leaves. I walk through the house and up the stairs back to my room. He is standing on the landing just down the hall. He says, “do you really think you can lock me out of my own house?” I lift my gun again and remind him that I mean business. I don’t miss. Last chance to get out unscathed. He runs into the laundry room and disappears. Now what do I do. I can’t let my guard down he is somewhere in this house and he could be dangerous. My family starts to return home this makes me feel better but worse at the same time. Before it was only me at stake now even though I am not alone, my family could get hurt too. I fill them in and we begin cautiously searching. He can’t hide forever. My sister and I took upstairs and my my and other sister took the down stairs. We catch him upstairs and tie his hands together. But he tells us to look down stairs. On the bottom floor my mother and sister are tied up head first in a kiddy pool. I tell my sister to watch him and I rush down there to try and save them! I pull them out and check for pulses. I have to try and do CPR on them both at the same time. I decided the best I can do is try alternating compression’s and yell for my sister to call 911. My mother comes out of it first and I roll her over and turn my full attention to my youngest sister. She two comes back praise the Lord! Meanwhile upstairs my sister is taking on this monster alone. She has to use her child hood tai kwon do on him when he tries to escape. He does succeed in escaping and we are on the hunt again. This time we all stay together. (Apparently there are tunnels in the laundry room walls that go throughout the house.) My dream flashes forward, we have been overtaken by him and his family, stuck to live in the same house and do as they wish. We are in a sense enslaved, but they don’t make us do everything for them. We just don’t have any freedom to come and go as we please. Sometimes they use their demanding presence to order us about, “like come to the store with me, or walk with me around the corn field.” In time we grow to accept our new life. Flash forward a year or so, the demands to go walking or spend time with them are more like requests. Eventually I begin to enjoy the walks and one day the man that invaded my home and tried to kill my family asks me to marry him. I am excited to say yes!

This is where I woke up.

After thought – Disclaimer:

Do I feel trapped in some aspect of my life or something? This dream was crazy long and shows how quickly you can adapt to your surroundings without even realizing it. I can’t imagine this being a real life scenario. Just to make sure that everyone knows. I am NOT in any sort of bad situation. I have an amazing life with my husband, he is one of the BEST! I actually don’t know if I could find a better husband for me.

Unknown Flight Service Company

Dream Setting:

Purchased a super cheap flight with a company I had never heard of.

My Dream:

I entered the jet way to board the plane with my husband and one of my sisters with me. A friend and her baby were also flying with us but we didn’t have seats together. At the door of the plane I noticed that there were no flight attendants. We boarded and looked around the cabin. It was a very unusual set up. It was round and the seats were in rows without isles. If you can imagine a circle with guidelines inside for writing. In the center of the cabin was a staircase going down to another level. My friend and her child had seats down there. We thought there was an entire other level of seating but it turned out that was where the flight attendants sat and where they kept supplies and such. Oh we found out once we boarded and sat down that there were flight attendants they just dressed in everyday clothing, they did not where distinguishing suits. This was a small plane only about 15 passenger seats. We were sat in the back, behind the stairwell. We could see the flight attendants going up and down. Take off was so smooth that we didn’t even know we had. My sister had to use the restroom and asked the flight attendant where it was. Downstairs of course as we assumed. I thought this is perfect she can check on our friend and baby. They were the only two seated below. She went down and relieved herself and when she returned she said that she did not see our friend or her baby. I asked the attendant if they had multiple bathrooms or levels. She said that they had the one bathroom and another level for luggage. On a plane so small they didn’t really need other bathrooms so where did my friend and her baby go? Once the attendant realized that we noticed the missing people the flight turned into a panic. We were flying with aliens. They always take two passengers extra than allowed and stick them below. This is their abduction technique. Of course the “plane” was round we were in a saucer! Were our friends dead or could we rescue them? We ran below and started searching. The search would be in vain we were all aboard an alien craft, they took our friends and now we know we are in their saucer they can’t let us live anyways. We were doomed.

And that was the end of the dream.

Slumber Party

Dream Setting/Background:

My best friends house. My best friend is married and has a baby. I am also married, no babies yet. We used to live together in college, and before we lived together I spent most of my time at her house. We had slumber parties ALL the time. Now that we are both married and live in separate states, we do not get the same amount of slumber parties to say the least.

My Dream:

My best friend and I wanted to have a slumber party. Her husband took their son away for us to have slumber party. He said he would be back in the morning and for us to have fun. Being the old ladies that we are now (about 25 years old) we pretty much just went right to sleep. We slept on the floor for some reason, guess we were too tired to make it to the couch or bed. I woke up and she was on her side smiling at me. The sun was up and shining brightly through the window. She looked really happy. I said, “good morning, how did you sleep?” To which she said, I didn’t. But she was asleep when I fell asleep? I was like, “oh, I am sorry. I thought you fell asleep too.” She had fallen asleep for a little while but had some exciting things happen during the night. She told me about her night and how it went. First she fell asleep for a couple of hours but was awakened by contractions. You see she had given birth by herself that night and I slept through the whole thing. The most interesting part of my dream is that she was not pregnant or did not know she was pregnant. It was a surprise to her as much as to me that she gave birth to not one, but two babies. Theses two babies were not twins either. One baby was almost to term and the other baby was just about a month or two premature. Both healthy and apparently ready to come out. The babies were sleeping in her first Born’s crib. Her firstborn son is about 10 months old in this dream. As she picked them up to show me her husband and son came home. He was confused to see two newborn babies and then shocked to learn that they were his! He looked at me in confusion and almost disgust as she told him the story. He looked as if he blamed me for what happened during the night. I laughed and told him that he couldn’t blame me, I didn’t get her pregnant. He did! Then I left, they obviously had lots on their hands to deal with… surprise pregnancy and births, two brand new babies, and a 10 month old crawling around trying to walk!

Dream reflection:

My youngest sister, now 21, had a friend give birth last year. She did not know she was pregnant at all and went to the hospital for severe stomach pains, AKA contractions. You hear about these kinds of stories but never believe them. My own mother saw this young lady the day before she gave birth and claims that she did not look pregnant at all!! She had a healthy baby almost to full term. It really happens sometimes.

 

Life Update

An update on my life and why I haven’t been posting my dreams.

The last couple of months have kept my pretty busy. I started a photography business, an etsy.com shop, and planned a trip to Spain, then when on that trip to Spain. Its not like my crazy dreams stopped. I just stopped having time to record them, or by the time I did, I didn’t remember enough of the details for it to be worth writing down. But I am ok with letting a few dreams slip past when I am living my dreams out in real life. Also I found a recipe for Honey Oatmeal Bread. The best home made bread ever!!! I am addicted.

Update on my trips to Europe. My husband and I have been saving and thinking about where to go in the world for a traveling adventure. We picked Spain. We found cheap flights for September of 2017. Although the flights were to Paris, we didn’t care. It was close enough for us so we booked them. We did this late on a Friday night, for some reason my whole family was awake and by 1 am my husband had convinced my sisters to join us. My sisters and I all pitched in to buy my mother a ticket as well, it was a surprise (Yes she knows, we told her the next day). We were all excited for our trip in about 6 months. A couple weeks later my husband learned about another cheap deal to Spain, but this trip would have to happen in 2 weeks time.

Before I continue, my husband had subscribed to Scott’s Cheap Flights. If you are looking for cheap international tickets it is worth looking into! They email you a list every day or so with really cheap flights all over the world. The kicker, you might just book a trip because you can… It is very tempting.

Back to the story. Scott’s cheap flights had found round trip tickets to Spain for $325 each! How do you say no to a trip to Europe for that cheap???? Apparently you can’t. We booked them and left 2 weeks later. We never thought we would be booking and planning a trip in under 2 weeks, but we did it and it was great! In fact we picked the first trip for 6 months out because we didn’t feel “ready” to just pick up and run away… I guess we were more ready than we thought. We are still going to Europe in September but will probably spend much more time in other places since we just did a week in Spain. We will probably do a few days in a few different countries, like Germany, France, Switzerland, and Italy.

Take me to Hawaii

Dream Setting:

A tropical island, probably Hawaii, at an all inclusive resort.

My Dream:

My husband and I, and his family were going on vacation. We got this giant family suit with everyone getting their own room and bath but sharing common space. The first day we went out exploring. We went to the beach and on some trails leading off the beach up into the hills. We saw beautiful ash white cliffs and I was really fit and looked amazing in my swimsuit. My sister in law went hiking farther but my husband and I turned around to hit the beach again. We all met back up at our lodging for lunch. The resort was set up to serve you every meal buffet style. But they had did it a little differently, there was a kitchen and dining room per every 2-3 large family lodgings. That meant that we ate with just 2 other families at most. After we ate, we all split up again and went and did the things we wanted to most. I ended up taking this high school girl to an indoor soccer scrimmage. They were playing in a room just slightly larger than a racquetball quart/room. Something that I used to do as a kid while my mom played racquetball in the quart next to mine. When the game was over everyone else left. We decided to stay a little longer. We did however want to go to the drinking fountain and get some water. The drinking fountain was of course outside the room. We had to keep the door open while everyone was leaving because if it closed we would be locked out. As we were slipping back into the room, an employee told us that if we had not reserved it we could not be in there. It was time for dinner anyways so we left. Back at our dinning room we learned that dinner would be 5 different styles of rice and that was it. When we first checked in we were told that if we had a request we could make it, but it may or may not be fulfilled. I thought it would be worth a try. Who wants to eat a plate full or just flavored white sticky rice? So I said to the mad putting the rice out that I had a request. He replied with a bow, “certainly madame, I can pass it along to the chef.” I requested pancakes. He returned to the kitchen to see if the chef could accommodate. He came out with no pancakes but did say that the chef would prepare something extra on the side, based on what he had in stock. A little while later yummy chicken appeared. One of the guys from another family thought making a request was ridiculous and that I should not have done it. He thought me rude I supposed. But I did notice that he ate the chicken that was brought out.

Wolf-Human/Zombie’s

Dream Setting:

At my mothers house in the country and then on to town to find the police.

My Dream:

I was at my mothers house and we kept hearing a pack of wolves. They were really loud and numerous. They were right in our back yard it seemed. We noticed a man walking down the road wearing all white. My mother live pretty far into the country so it is very unusual to see someone walking down the road unless they are in need of help. So he passes the house and doesn’t even look in the that direction. He just keeps on walking. After  my mother assumed he was gone we all walked out to the street to look down it, to see how far he went. He had gone only a couple hundred feet. We saw him strapped to a chair on the opposite side of the road, facing our second driveway. The driveway that leads into our back yard. Of course we were shocked and confused. We approached and asked him if he was alright. He told us that he was perfectly fine, but he would appreciate our help. He asked us to go into the house and bring out anything sharp, and hard, something we would use for protection. He told us to each bring two things and some for him and return just before dusk. He was waiting as bait for the wolves and he wanted us to help wack and attack them. I guess he wasn’t tightly tied to the chair because when he wolves came he was easily able to slither out of his bonds (I wonder what he would have done without our help, he had no weapon). So just after dusk the wolves came crawling out of the woods. They took the bait. As they were approaching something crazy happened! They turned into human forms!!! They were much slower than healthy humans should be so we assumed they were zombie like werewolves. That is the best we could come up with. We started out battle and “fought” until my broom stick failed me. I yelled “retreat” and we all ran back toward the house. We needed something better than brooms and shovels. I thought we were only going to try and shoo the wolves away, scare them into moving on. Turned out that we needed to eliminate them. We all got back in the house, even the stranger and looked for knives and machete’s and guns. We headed back outside and we found 5 different ‘families’ of these werewolf/zombies. We wondered if any of them were friendly so we would ask them before we slashed them. There were so many of them that we once again had to retreat to the house, this time for our safety. They were swarming and ripping the house apart. The back door was especially difficult to defend and as we tried to run in and slam it they got their arms in and we could not shut it. One zombie female got it and said that she was a friendly but sacrificed coming in because she knew that if she didn’t she would be left to die on her own for not being like the others. She asked me to slit her throat, I tried but had bad aim and just got her forehead and eyes. I don’t think zombies feel pain… We were surrounded. They were coming in the back and the front doors and knocking on windows. We had to get out of there. There was a little boy with us about 10 years old. My two sisters were home but my mother had left for work. My younger sister ran out and got in her car and escaped. It was now just me, my youngest  sister, this little boy, and the stranger. I told my sister to run and get in the jeep, she said would but she would not drive it. It was a stick shift. I turned to follow her and noticed the little boy had been snatched up. I had to rescue him. I came in slashing and grabbed the boy and ran. The zombies were on our heals the whole time. I yelled for my sister open the jeep door as we approached and I threw the boy in. The stranger jumped in the other side and I in the driver side. I tore out of there as we knocked over and ran over some zombies. My plan was to find the police station and tell them what was going on. We needed the national guard or something! I drove right into the police station, one of the bay doors was opened. At first they wanted to be on the defense but I yelled, “we need your help. We need your help!” They relaxed and we all jumped out. Out came with us our dog, we didn’t even notice him and had totally forgotten about him. The dog started barking at the little boy, who had green spiky hair. At once the green spiky hair jumped off his head and turned into a small child zombie. The cops were surprised, as were we. The zombie ran into a large pipe thing and into the sewer. We all chased after it. We ended up coming out pretty dry and we got the zombie so we felt triumphant. We explained what was going on to the police and showed them the zombie. It was in their hands now. We got back in the jeep and called my other sister to make sure she got away ok. As I was on the phone the stranger noticed some odd behavior about our dog. It turns out that the dog had gotten scratched or something and had robot like buttons on his belly. If we cranked his leg it made a noise similar to a slot machine at a casino and his buttons would light up. My sister was ok. We all made it out alive, and we had a new robot dog.

 

Unhelpful Officer’s

Dream Setting:

Traveling down a country highway.

My Dream:

I was traveling down the road  and come to a road blockage.There were about 3 cars ahead of me, one of them was my youngest sister. It was dark out, could have been early in the morning or just after dark in the evening. I don’t know the time. I get out of the car to investigate and find a carpet roll is blocking both directions, as if it were a tree that had fallen across the roadway. The roll of carpet was at least 6 feet tall, that is 6 feet in diameter, and as long as is a two lane highway. The cars in front of me including my sister were discussing how to get around it if possible. Or try to push it out of the way. My sister did get around it and the other two cars decided to try and push it, with no luck. By now there are several more cars stuck on both sides than before, one of them driven by a friend of mine. We had donuts in the car that were meant for sharing at our destination, wherever that was. Eventually 3 police officers show up. The look at the situation and then just stand on the side of the road watching. I walked up to them to ask them what was going to be done about the issue. They wouldn’t even let me finish asking my question, they began telling me that it was none of my business and that I needed to get back in my car. They gave tickets to those that tried to get around it or move it, including a ticket to my sister. I again walked up and tried to talk to them. I tried asking them what the tickets were for, but again I was rudely interrupted and yelled at. I was told that they were not going to talk to me and that I shouldn’t be asking any questions. If I bothered them again I was going to get a ticket myself. I simply asked, what would the ticket be for? We got in this heated discussion about what they legally could or could not ticket me for and I reminded them that they are public servants and are supposed to keep the peace! I asked them all their names so that I could be sure to contact the chief and have a discussion about what happened. I also had several witnesses to the situation. I did call the chief and have the discussion on my way to town after we got passed the carpet roll.

 

 

 

Strange School

Dream Setting:

At a large mall for a school project.

My Dream:

I was in high school or college, I don’t know which. Several of my friends and I had a school assignment to do. They were all the same type of assignment but we had to each be unique. So I chose to do my assignment in a store in the mall. My youngest sister chose the same store as me and there were several others that chose stores in the mall near me. One of my male friends decided to do his under a large wooden porch. School project. Something happened, perhaps an earthquake or something. There was lots of commotion and everyone being evacuated/running outside. I managed to find my sister and my friends and we all headed outside. Once I knew everyone was accounted for, I am sort of a mother hen kind of gal, I was relieved. But relief didn’t last long because I then begin worrying about the people I know that were not with/near me. My first concern was my friend under the porch. I make my way to the porch to look for him but he is not there. I was glad to know that he had made it out and was not injured, although I didn’t know where he was. A little while later all the parents come looking for everyone and nobody has seen my porch friend. His mother is worried because like I said, he was not trapped under the porch. He was indeed missing! Everyone started looking for him.We spent what seemed like hours looking for him and calling people he might be with. He was found eventually, dead. We were all in shock! He was a good friend of mine and our families were all good friends. We were all so sad! He had made it out of under the collapsed porch but he did no survive whatever disaster had struck us.

 

Night Time Chase

Dream Setting:

In one of the towns near my child hood home. It was after dark.

My Dream:

My sisters and I were hanging out. My middle sister drives a jeep and the top was down. I am the oldest, she is the middle and then there is the youngest sister. The middle seems to be the one that causes the most trouble in my dreams… and probably in real life too. You know what they say about middle children… Anyways, my middle sister had found this small monkey running around and decided to capture it. The monkey immediately liked her and they were fast friends. The monkey rode on her back and sometimes buckled into her jeep. After what seems like a few hours in dream land, which was probably like 2 seconds in real life, we met up and I got to meet the monkey. As I was making my acquaintance, this giant gorilla, like the size of a tiny home, comes barrelling down the street. Where did this giant gorilla come from? It was heading straight for us. We jump into the jeep and race off thinking we had escaped. Then the gorilla appeared on our left! We tried to hit the gas but could go nowhere. The gorilla had got to the jeep and grabbed it by the roll cage. We had just enough time to slip out of the jeep and run on foot down the road. We saw a giant tree and began climbing. The gorilla was swinging his long arms at us, trying to grab us. We jumped in a building window and ran to the other side and out the door. Of course, this is a dream and the gorilla probably had heat sensitive eyesight or something because as we ran outside we saw the gorilla hot on our trail. We spotted a motorcycle not for away and jumped on it. The key was in the ignition and we zoomed off leaving the gorilla in the dust. We were finally safe.
