As I coughed my self to sleep late into the night I only hoped for at least a few hours of solid rest. When I woke up it was apparent that I had gotten the healing sleep that I needed and had a fun dream! My dream started out in the present but kind of a parallel universe kind of vibe. Here it goes…
A friend of mine had just had her baby and I thought it would be fun to visit. So I headed out towards their home. I currently live about 2 hours away from them so I also thought I would hit up a few other friends in that area on the way home. I got to their house, which I had not visited before, and pulled in. I wasn’t sure where to park because the drive way split in two and there were cars filling both shoot offs. I decided to park behind the blue car and hope that I wasn’t blocking anyone in. Since I was only there for a short visit I took the chance and walked up to the door and knocked. A sibling of the new father opened the door and let me in. There were a few siblings there and it was nice to catch up while we waited for the mother, father, and new baby to come out of the bedroom from a quick feed and change. It was all hugs and laughter as we visited and my mother also showed up to say hello to the new baby. The couple has another child that just turned two and he was proud to show us his new big boy bed and bedroom. After the visit, and I didn’t block anyone’s car thankfully, I headed over to the gymnastics center I used to work at and where my sisters currently work. When I arrived It was so natural but surprising that I myself had a child in the car. He was my own son and he was about one year old it seemed. We get out of the car and I carry him into the building to say hi to his aunties and some athletes I used to coach. I walked in and noticed that there were some safety violations concerning the rock wall in the room next door and I felt compelled to go in and take pictures. After I got the photos I went upstairs to the gymnastics center. It was nice to see everyone, it had been awhile. It was just like old times, I got to give an athlete an attitude adjustment and everything! When it was time to go I packed up my kid and heading back towards the rock wall. I set my son down on the mat for a couple of more pictures I guess, I had managed that rock wall program in the past. When done, I realized my son had accidentally knocked my drivers license an credit card into a drain that wasn’t there before. I could barely reach them. But I got them just before they went into the pipe. I grabbed up my son and walked out to the car. There was another mother with a child about the same age walking in the same direction and we got to chatting. It turns out we were parked right next to each other. It just so happens that we parked near a storm water drain. Here to my son was able to wiggle my drivers license and credit card out of my wallet and into the drain. This time was just as close a call as the first, but I was able to get my cards! Now we could load up and head home. It had just started snowing lightly when I pulled onto the road, and then I woke up.
My dream started out with me being a super hero. I had some similar powers to Super Girl, minus the shooting laser eye thing. I was in the middle of fighting a bad guy when I was hit in the back of the neck with something that merged with my flesh. It was about the size of a thick cookie and it disabled my powers. Then the Asians took over. All the those in the town were forced to work for them as slaves. We all had to wear gray jump suits like in prison. We were not allowed outside, we just walked down these long underground hallways to get places, like where we showered and slept and the mess hall, and the fields where we worked outside of town. The underground halls had the main passage and then on both sides here was a 4 foot ledge you could walk on. You only walked on that if you were forced to. It wasn’t very safe, there was a painted line on the ledge that you had to stay on but there were often pieces of the wall in disrepair so you had to be careful. You didn’t want the floor to give way because you would fall in. The Asians were growing some fort of tree crop that we would sometimes be allowed to go out and work in. One time I got chased by a dog and had to take shelter in the hallway. Where we slept was also the same place we showered and used the toilet. Just a large room per 15 people with open showers and toilets. When we were all going back to our “rooms” I noticed that my youngest sister was not back. I looked around and she wasn’t in our sleeping room. Everyone was being shacked except me. I was worried so I over powered the guard and stole a doctors uniform. I sneaked up the hall and into the common area where I opened the door to go outside. Of course they noticed and yelled to shut the door and stay inside. I bolted out the door and followed the wall of the hall, apparently it wasn’t underground. There was a narrow path between the wall and the sea that I followed and eventually found my sister out on a work line. Somehow I got her and started walking back to the common doors… I guess we were going to go back to the sleeping area, not much for escaping and running off. On the way back I saw my mom floating in the sea on a big floaty toy. I yelled to her to get over here and lets go. She refused, she wanted to swim with some kid named Micheal. I said again for her to go and she replied in a very child like and winy voice, “but I want to swim with Michael”. An guard noticed and started swimming out to her, now i’d had it. I pulled my bow and arrow into position and released. Her floaty was now popped so she came ashore. We all walked back into the barracks together. Later I was in the commons area where we eat and noticed that something was going on outside. We must have been under attack. I slipped into the back corner and out a window. I had escaped. But now what to do?
This is the end of my dream.
This dream had me waking up with a confused smile on my face. What I mean by that is that it was a pleasant dream but not something that would probably happen in real life, but it could. Here it is…
I am an adult in this dream as are all my family and friends, but I am going back to a time of my childhood. A time where my dad was still alive and my parents were still married (or at least , but I was an adult living in a life that I am currently in. The dream begins with me going to visit my dad at his auto mechanic shop. I head towards the office area and notice that the storage area is full of bikes and bike parts. These are pedal bikes, like the ones you ride for recreation, family bikes. They are not motorcycles. It looks like the storage area has become a bike shop. There is a customer perusing the bikes and parts. I smile and nod and continue to look around. My dad walks up and says hello, then heads towards the customer. Then a motherly figure in my life that I knew/know, walks up and we start a conversation. Lets call her Stacy for this dream. I was a little surprised to see her, she didn’t even know my dad. Then my mom walks up. Now I understand the connection. My mom is friends with Stacy. More confusing to me is why my mom was there. Did she bring Stacy along for support? Boy was I surprised to see my mom and dad happy to see each other, remember in real life they would have been divorced. So they were still married and I was happy to see my dad and his new bike shop.
This is all, I woke up.
Dream Category: Wacky
Info about dream and real life: In the country near my mom’s house (a fake dream house), I watch glowing ball from space crash land just a little down the road. I do not actually know whether this is past, present, or future time but I am going to just guess on this dream “taking place” in the past but also in the present.
My Dream: I was at my mothers house, she lives out in the country. In this dream she lived near a few large farms with very large hay fields and barns. The land surrounding was pretty flat or rolling hills style, not as mountainous as her actual house in real life. I was in my old bedroom at night watching for the moon and stars. I saw a bright blue star growing larger and larger. I was wondering if that was Jesus returning home and I got really excited!!! The blue turn to a golden color and looked like all those pictures of a man sized glow that Jesus would step out of on his return to take his believers to heaven. I was ready to go! I was so excited and on the edge of my seat waiting for Jesus to pop out of the golden circle. He did not, the circle turned back to blue and shot across the sky. It looked like something had landed. I knew it had to have landed close. In fact I could see the wreckage and fire it caused in a field just down the road, at most it was a 1/4 mile away. I put on my robe and ran to the landing spot. It was more of a crash spot and we had to put the fire out before we could see anything. Soon more farmers and neighbors came running to help. The ‘thing’ had landed very near a barn, it was in a pen attached to the side of the barn and nobody wanted to see a good barn burn down. When the fire was out and we could get a good look at the ‘thing’ we thought it resembled something of junk art. Like someone had taken a bunch of metal objects and welded them together as a giant art piece. The bottom, in orientation to how it landed, was or looked like it was a quad (like a quad motorized vehicle for recreation). The rest looked like just large or long tubular metal objects projecting out from the bottom piece. The next day was a nice and sunny day. The ‘thing’ was still in the farmers pig pen and really did, even more in the sun light, look a bunch of metal junk welded together. As exciting as last night was we decided to stay at moms and some friends came over to have a water fight. We were shooting each other with water guns when my brother in law drove up. Up to this point I had forgotten that I was married, my husband was not in my dream until now. My husband was with my brother in law asked me to get in the car so that he could show me his new place. We drove to his house and we got the grand tour. His bed room was exactly like my childhood bedroom, down to the rips in the wall paper and everything! After the tour we drove down the road where there was his new church. They had these orange trees, or something like an orange but definitely bigger than an orange. The fruit was the size of my head. They felt juicy so I picked one, peeled into it and took a bite. It was pretty good. As the pastor stuck his head out the door of the church my husband turned to me and said, “I don’t think you were supposed to pick that.” The pastor came toward us and he looked like he meant business. He grabbed the giant orange and asked if it tasted good. I told him that it did taste good. He took a bite and the taste must have pleased him because he gave it back and turned away to leave. He didn’t say anything about not picking them, but maybe he believed them to taste horrid and didn’t want people picking them just to throw them away.

Well, it has been a really long time since I have written any of my dreams. I have had so many in the past couple of months that I can’t remember much of any of them. With life being as busy as it has been it is easy to just get on with your day and forget about the dream you had last night. I of course regret not making the time to record my dreams and hope to do better in the future. I know, I know, I said that last life update… but I really do mean well and hope to try harder. I have decided that I will be categorizing my dreams and trying to be more organized. In the future I will only have one picture per category so you will know by the picture which category my dream falls under. This really won’t make much of a difference for you as the reader but it will help me out a lot. Before I was trying to take a unique picture for each dream and that was deterring me from posting because I would have to go out and take a picture of something that would somehow connect to the dream. Basically I did not have the time to do such extensive planning for each dream post. I am still trying to figure out which categories to use and which pictures to match but rest assured I will get there.
So if you are wondering what my life update is… here goes. My husband and I, along with our friends (a married couple my husband and I are really good friends with) and my brother in law, worked on a project as a team and were chosen as 1 of 10 semi-finalists in America to be sent to China, all expenses paid, to compete with 60 other teams from China for cash prizes. This has literally taken up our entire life but it has been so cool developing the project and preparing for China. We are all excited to get this experience and to hopefully see the Great Wall of China. So that was a bit of a surprise in my life. Further more I worked on a self watering project for my plants to keep them alive while we are gone in China for a week in August and then for when we are gone in Europe, we will spend a couple weeks in September.
So A dream I had last night… Well I had several but this is the one I remember most and not the first dream involving twin baby boys.
I was on a school bus with a whole bunch of kids and adults. I do not where we were going but we happened to be going by my mothers house. The bus was really loud and I remember looking down and I had twin baby boys in my arms and they had soiled their pants. They must have been about 12-14 months old because they could walk but not very well and they were not really running around toddlers. They just looked about 12-14 months old I guess… Anyways, they had soiled their pants and I had to do something about it. Thankfully as I said above we were going past my mothers house. I convinced the bust driver to stop and I took the boys inside. We went into my middle sisters old room and changed them. They were much happier after the change and we went on our way.
I was renting a house, my sisters and mother lived with me.
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 too 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.
Purchased a super cheap flight with a company I had never heard of.
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.
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.
The picture is of a Moorish Castle in Southern Spain.
A tropical island, probably Hawaii, at an all inclusive resort.
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 man 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.
At my mothers house in the country and then on to town to find the police.
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 lives 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.
