In My Dreams

1) Giant nasty vehicle-like robots that destroyed anything out after sunset. I was out after sunset. I took refuge in a house that didn't have a working bathroom.

2) I went to Jen's house for a mothers' group meeting that opened with each person doing a little improv a capella singing. Jen's husband was in the background telling the triplets that he still needed to fix the freight elevator, so they should take the regular elevator. I dream about elevators frequently.

3) Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were in my bedroom explaining how Scientology could improve my sex life. Tom was being really gross about it.


Meanwhile, a toddler was kicking me in the neck because she wanted to lie sideways with her head on Paul's pillow and her feet on mine.

Coffee brewing? CHECK.

Elevators? Have you ever looked it up to find out what that might mean?

I pictured Katie rolling her eyes while Tom was being gross.

My dreams lately have included nurses trying to put IVs in the bottom of my feet. Not a stretch to figure out where that is coming from!

Hope the coffee is taking effect!

I don't even remember my dreams -- just that I kept having them in the five minutes of sleep I'd get in between each time I woke up to check on a sick six year old.

Then a two year old cheerfully informed me he "went stinky on Mickey Mouse" (diaper). He laughed! Laughed! Poor Mickey. Poor, poor Mommy.

Brutal! I'm up after waking to what I thought was an earthquake but what was really a 3-year-old with a nightmare running into our room and throwing herself onto the bed. She's back in bed but I'm...well...not.

Coffee is brewing. It is gonna be a LONG day.

AndreAnna said...

Eww, Tom Cruise is so gross now with his Ccientology stuff. My sex life would suffer as long as I could recall that dream.

Oh good, a weird dream outlet...because I didn't want to admit this on my blog. I had a little person/orgy dream the other night, that Paris & Nicole set up for me. One of the few non-little persons had a wanker shaped like a Toblerone bar, but not with the segmentations. That is all.

Sweet dreams tonight, dear.

I hate weird dreams. They set the mood for my entire day. ugh. Hope the coffee is working!

by the way, I am LOVING my Monday house!

Ew, I have had a dream with Tom and Katie in it before, too. What's up with them invading our dreams now, not just our TVs and magazines? I hope you recover quickly from that one.

jonniker said...

HAHAHAHA. I've had a similar Tom/Katie dream. Why does he show up talking about sex in our dreams? WHYYYY?

Di said...

No weird dreams here - just a small girl who woke up CRYING AND CRYING at 5am...I tried to let her cry it out, but after long enough, I went in and she latched on like she'd never eaten before. Now she's Up! And! Happy!

Coffee..please...

Swistle said...

Kelsey- I looked it up just now, and...inconclusive. It can mean different levels of consciousness, rising and falling in terms of various things (happiness, wealth), life changes, etc. The elevators in my dreams are almost always broken and/or confusing to use.

Katie WAS rolling her eyes. She was embarrassed, and kind of hiding in a corner hoping to leave!

Swistle said...

Hollowsquirrel- HA HA HA HA HA!

I just have to tell you that you are awesome. That is all.

Must have been the night for weird dreams....

I was staying in my parents house, alone, and someone was banging on the front door in the middle of the night. When I went to check, the door was unlocked and the woman outside told me that our outside light was blinking on and off really rapidly... as soon as she was gone and I locked the door, I could hear someone upstairs (robber?) whistling and walking around. I woke up with my heart in my throat! Icky dream.

Jess said...

Still, I am a little jealous that you remember your dreams. I often wake up in turmoil and all confused because of something CRAZY that happened in my dream, but I can never remember what and it pisses me off.

Erica said...

You know, Tom Cruise is creepy enough that MAYBE that part wasn't a dream at all. He was probably REALLY THERE.

jen said...

I had a dream last night that I was getting married all over again, only I was pregnant, the baby was my father in law's, and he was leering at me and chasing me around for the whole dream, during which I could never find my husband.. I kept JUST missing him.

Julie said...

Did you eat late last night? I have the weirdest dreams on nights that I eat a late dinner. My dreams as of late have had Mike Holmes wearing nothing but a tool belt while building shelves in my living room. Glad I can say that here because I think it would be TMI for my blog. Sigh.

desperate housewife said...

Ah, Tom Cruise... Isn't it amazing that he used to be some sort of SEX SYMBOL? Now he's like, a CRAZY symbol.

Maggie said...

Hmmmmm, Tom Cruise talking about sex... Dream? Or nightmare?

The other night I had some sort of crazy weird dream about being in Paris for a circus. And what SOS means in French...

Sometimes dreams are SO WEIRD!

Amy said...

I have many dreams every single night. Most are very strange, and they often involve my teeth falling out. I wake up frantically feeling my teeth to make sure they're all still there!

d e v a n said...

yikes! I hope your coffee was strong enough!

Mairzy said...

Wow, what a night. Too bad we can't get that much accomplished during the day.

I always dream about cars with brakes that donnn't quiiittte wooorrrk. And toilets that overflow... or explode. But I always sing gloriously in my dreams (and only in my dreams). I'd have dazzled your mothers' group.

August told me I should read up on Scientology for entertainment. I will, and if there are any sex tips, I'll be sure to pass them on so you can see if Tom knew what he was talking about.

Saly said...

I've been all over the crazy dreams lately too--

--and the toddler has been trying to rest her head on my growing belly as I sleep on the couch all night long. I need a hotel room.

Astarte said...

Oh, ANY dream with Tom Cruise in it would have to be a nightmare. I never understood what people saw in him, and now he's just completely Gross.

I had a dream last week where Chloe's piano teacher told me that he was madly in love with me. Since he's about 60, it wasn't a great thing. Now I feel all skeezy every time I have to take her over there!

Jen4 @ Amazing Trips said...

That's really funny. We live in a one-story. But maybe you are telepathically in sync with me? The elevator was a symbol of our sex life. It's totally broken. It's stuck on the ground floor with no hope of going anywhere. Not even the emergency call switch works.

If Tom gave you any good tips, forward them to me.

Jenni said...

I used to have weird dreams all the time.

But dreaming requires sleeping and sleeping requires less kids than I have!

Mommy Daisy said...

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who dreams about fellow bloggers. I probably spend more time with them than real life friends. Is that sad?
