Long over due life update

Categories: Present Family, Present Friends, Future Family, Life Update

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.

My Dream:

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.

Unhelpful Officer’s

Dream Setting:

Traveling down a country highway.

My Dream:

I was traveling down the road and came 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. They 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 their chief and have a discussion about what happened. I also had several witnesses to the situation. I did call the chief and had 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.

 

Escape in India

Dream Setting:

I am in India, part of a community.

My Dream:

I am living in my community in India along a river. The river is not a vert big river. Maybe 15 feet wide, but at least 15 feet deep. There were some of us young teenagers that did not like the community leader. He was a very tan white man with a funny accent. He was also very tall and not thin. He was a very large and intimidating man. A few of us decided that we would try to escape so we jumped in the river. There was a cave hidden among the rocks. If you swam under the rocks you could enter the cave. We tried this approach without success. We tried another approach where we ran off and got on a ship. The community leader followed us and we had to jump overboard. We were pulled back onto the ship and the leader told us to stop running away. He said we were to perform in the community event and would do random checks on me to make sure I wasn’t trying to run away. He must have been a pervert because he would some how always check on me when I was changing and then watch me until I was done. He kept saying that it was so he knew what I was wearing and what I was changing into so I couldn’t slip away. I felt violated and trapped. He brought us back and paired me with a dance partner. My dance partner was several years younger than me and easy to trick. I tried one last time to escape and this time I succeeded. I ran into the hills and found my sister searching for a friend. Together we found a man that knew a song we knew. So we sang it together. It is a country song, Fiddle In The Band by Alabama. After we sang that song together and felt connected my sister followed a lady on a bicycle. The lady could ride straight up hills! My sister finally caught up to her and asked her how she did it. The lady just said she has always done it, if you want to do it you will make it happen. We liked the mountain community we found, away from the creepy leader I once had. The atmosphere was so joyful and bright and pleasant. The grass was greener the trees were healthier and the people were happier.

Shots, Guys, Chickens and a missing Duck

Dream Setting:

My family and I were walking along some old train tracks that had been converted to a walking path. It was just before dusk. Later my dream shifts to my mothers house.

My Dream:

My family, my mom, my 2 sisters, and myself, were out on a walk. We chose a path that used to be train tracks but they converted it. It was getting dusk on a warm summer night. Lots of people walk on this trail but we hadn’t seen many people on this trip. We were on our way back, maybe half way to our car, and we saw a man walking towards us. He walked up to us and before we knew it he had a gun out and was shooting! In the commotion I notice that someone got hit in the stomach and another person in the leg. Then, thoomp. I was hit in the back of my head. I felt the life drain out of me. I was dead. My a miracle I came back to life. I stood up and assessed the situation. My dream flashes forwards and we are all in my mother’s house. I was cleaning out a junk drawer and noticed the front door open. In walks a random young man that I don’t know. He was in his early 20’s. He walked in and through the house, straight to my mother’s bedroom. Then another guy walked in and straight to my mother’s bedroom. I tried to ask them what they wanted but they just told me to mind my own business and pushed me aside. Apparently they were good friends with my mother and she was really happy to see them. Outside it is night time. There is a small shed/barn and a chicken and duck coop. There was a large enclosed chicken yard on the south side of the chicken coop. There were white Christmas lights strung through the top of the chicken wire over the chicken yard. One of the ducks had ducklings and had gotten separated from them in the barn. We had to go into the barn, in the dark, and search for the mother duck.

 

Dam, Bell, Lederhosen

Dream Setting:

A 2 hour road trip, a stay at a hotel, and a contest held at a convention center in Portland, Oregon. All the characters in my dream are based on people I actually know. I will be using pseudonyms.

My Dream:

My husband and I were on a short road 2 hour trip. We were heading to our home town for a visit. About half way we found a series of small dams where you can scuba dive through the fish elevator’s, no not ladder’s… elevator’s (spoiled fish). They also had a small hotel with 5 rooms. We decided to stay the night. My in-laws joined us. This hotel was big on being punctual. They served dinner for free… but only for 10 minutes. With such a short time frame, I missed dinner. Instead I spent the rest of the evening hanging out with some old friends from the pool I used to work at. My best friend and I played the arcade racing game, while holding her new born son. After the stay in the tiny hotel, we decided to go to Portland, Oregon to assist my sister and her friend Cordelia compete in a competition. They had to measure the circumference of the Liberty Bell. The contestants go one at a time to talk to the judge. The judge asks them about themselves and then shows them how to measure. Once they are done talking they can measure the bell. After all the contestants have gone (there was a huge line of like 100 people) the winner is announced based on the accuracy of the measurement. You did not have to be present tow in. In the line of contestants we saw an acquaintance we had back in college. He was there with his date and they were both 7 feet tall, dressed in giant blue clogs and lederhosen. They also had those famous hats they wear in the Alps.
