Do you watch Dancing with the Stars? Cheryl Burke has always been my favorite dancer, followed by Julianne and her twin brother.
Wouldn’t it be something to move like that? Dance like that? HAVE A BODY LIKE THAT?? Did you see it last night? I was so pleased for Cheryl and her partner. They are the first ones to score a perfect 30 this season!! The Salsa they performed last week was VERY exciting…made me want to eat nachos at his feet!
Maybe that is what gave me bad dreams again last night. I don’t know what is up with my state of sleep. I thought sleep was a time to regroup, so to speak. If that is the case, then something is way off for me. The past two nights I have had horrible dreams but when I finally am able to wake up, I only remember bits and pieces of them. Last night had something to do with a Yorkie terrier, some lady I did not know (who owned the dog), rail road tracks and this lady’s grandmother whom I gathered was a real piece of work…kind of like the witch in Hansel and Gretel. I even remember Dan trying to wake me up by nudging me and saying “HEY!”, but I went right back to sleep and right back into this dream.
The night before, my dream centered around a house I’d never been in before and seeing something horrific in a closet that then was chasing me.
I don’t think even if I was able to remember these dreams that it would help me work anything out in my life….at least I HOPE not! I can’t think of anything I’m afraid of at the moment; nothing like that going on in my life.
I do have returning dreams of two kinds; headed up a bridge that has a very high middle and being scared to death there is nothing on the other side (I never make it to the middle of the bridge) and another one which is really hard to explain, but I’ll try. I’m riding on something similar to the tracks you see in OLD mines and I’m in one of the cars they used in the old mines. This track is out in the open and usually goes over water (some of it open and some of it with huge chunks of ice). The track has ups and downs, and sharp twists and turns (I LOVE roller coasters but I don’t think this has anything to do with that because it is so frightening. Coasters don’t scare me; they thrill me). I never seem to reach a destination, or if I do, when I wake up I don’t remember reaching a destination.
I have had one dream in my life that DID help me out of a bad place that I was in. About 5 years ago, a woman who had been what I considered my best friend since 3rd grade and I had a very bad “falling out”. We’d had tiffs before, but this was long lasting…but I couldn’t seem to get past it. I was continually thinking about her and I didn’t want to. The dispute was so bad that I did NOT want her in my life anymore, but still I couldn’t get past it.
One night I had a dream about her. I dreamed that we met in passing on a side street in the town where we both grew up. In my hand I had a cluster of brightly colored balloons. As we met on the sidewalk, I looked at her waiting to see if she’d say something and she didn’t. I let go of the balloons and kept on walking. Of course the balloons floated up into who knows where. The next morning I remembered that dream and realized I didn’t have those strong feelings about her or our friendship anymore.
Anyway, it was another short night for me. I’ve been awake since about 2:30 a.m. and managed to stay in bed till about 4. It always wakes Dan up when he realizes I’m not there, not matter how quiet I am. Once he realizes I’m gone, he has a hard time getting back to sleep.
I THINK WE NEED A VACATION FROM WINTER!!!
