I don't know about you, but I can dream about the oddest, most mundane things...like doing laundry, or cleaning up the kitchen, only it'll be something like 20 loads of laundry and kitchen counter tops completely buried in dishes waiting for me to wash.
Can anyone say, "Overwhelmed"? (Or maybe just "Dramatic"?)
Some background information before I quickly tell you my latest memorable dream...
1. Our shower has been slow to drain recently. However, as long as you keep the water flow just a little low, the dirty water never reaches your toes.
2. There are two light bulbs that have needed to be replaced for months in our bathroom, since I never seem to remember to put these special globe light bulbs on the shopping list. Four bulbs are still lit, so it's not a big deal.
3. Grace was awake, crying, and restless this particular night from 4:00-ish until 6:00-ish, at which point I gave in and brought her to our bed...at which point we both slept very well.
4. Jason was not aware of any of this...or at least not #3.
Sometime after I finally went to sleep a little after 6:00 a.m., I had the following dream:
I "woke" to find that I had been so sleepy after being up with Grace that I had fallen asleep standing up in the shower. Not only that, but I found that I had been asleep in the shower for so long that the shower water was nearly up to the edge of the tub. And then when I pulled the shower curtain back to step out, there was only one light bulb that had not blown out.
That was it. That was the whole dream. It seems like I could put together better dreams than this, right? There wasn't even a single guinea pig in that dream.
Jason asked, "How do you do that? How do you fit all of that stuff together into dreams?"
I would like to ask him, "How do you do that? How do you sleep through someone crying, wailing, and thrashing around in her crib in your bedroom...for two hours?"
