Crazy Dreams

I have been a bad blogger. I've not been posting as much and not be visiting others' blogs as much, and consequently, I've not been getting my blogger emails--which I miss. Well, really, I miss all of it. I'm going to try to be better this week. My only plans are for three separate Thanksgiving luncheons (all school related--I don't get any turkey or pumpkin pie). I plan to write too.

So, foremost on my mind as the day draws to a close and bedtime approaches, is the fact that I've been having very disturbing dreams ever since last Wednesday. Last Wednesday, seeing as my house was in as immaculate a condition as it ever gets, I invited a few friends over for a lunch together. Admittedly, I still had to spend the morning tidying up seeing as my family can't keep a house neat for more than a few days at a time.

We had a really good time, and I thought that was that. I figured the next time I had people over would probably not be until sometime into the new year. (That's how infrequent I invite people over). Well that night, and every night since, I have awoken thinking people are in my house for some reason or another, whether because I'm hosting some event, giving a tour, or just having friends over.

So I wake up, in a panic that people are wandering around my house while I'm sleeping, scramble out of bed, quickly try to tidy things up, and then wander around trying to find them as they've (obviously) given me the slip. Last night I even checked the door locks, just to confirm I was dreaming.

THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!! Am I that freaked out about having people in my home that this is my subconscious' way of warning me off any further invitations??? I shudder to think what tonight's dream might be.

I don't know if I've had dreams that are so realistic they get me out of bed! I'm no dream expert, but on those dream sites it says that visitors or guests in dreams means that you might have new challenges or interests or that news or information is on its way to you. Maybe you're subconsciously not ready or you're prepping for something!

Wow that would freak me out. I don't normally have dreams that vivid, but the few times I have, I scared the crap out of my husband. I was yelling and punching the air. Funny thing is I don't remember what I was dreaming about anymore.

Yikes. I wonder if it's something with the time and/or weather change that brings up the funky dreams? Most of those dream interpretation sites I've seen are way off base, but I have noticed that what I eat or how high/low the temperature is can affect what goes on in my mind in the midnight hour. Hope you sleep better tonight!

Bless your heart. I hate dreams that are that realistic. Here's hoping they stop soon.

Wow, that's weird - I've been having nightmares ALL the time recently, too. It must be the time of year, too.

I don't know that much about dreams (although I can tell that my absolute worst nights are when I'm pregnant!). But my guess is that the houseguests are a symbol for something.

OMG..... poor you!!!! I'm all for only having people over occasionally....

A lot of creative types are a bit hermitty, especially writers. I think it has to do with the need to listen to the story inside, hard to do with the sound and fury of guests.

I don't usually get anxiety dreams when I have guests coming, but the work doesn't flow as well, either. Your dreams *really* struck a chord!
