Stealing cookbooks and wearing cowboy boots

I never remember dreams so I have always assumed I just don’t dream or I have a crappy memory (one of the two). This week has been a completely different story. In fact, I’ve been having such involved dreams that it is causing me to wake up extremely late.

Monday night I dreamt that I was at a fancy dinner party with green table linens and white flowers (I swear I dream in color). It was held at a huge house which in dream world I figured must have been the Duggar family household from 18 kids and counting. The next thing I know I’m running through the house with an Ina Garten Back to Basics cookbook that I am apparently stealing. I get outside and what do you know their home backs right up to Dollywood in true Duggar style. Suddenly I jolt back into reality realizing I am waking up 40 minutes later than normal. Crap.

This morning I woke up an hour later than normal! This was due to me dreaming that I was back in college. All I remember is that I was wandering around campus in the rain trying to get from class to my friend’s dorm room while carrying a basket of dirty laundry, a cake, my lunch and an umbrella. For whatever reason, I remember being frustrated because I would have to set everything down to put on my cowboy boots and open my umbrella.

Point is, as interesting and random as these dreams might be; I’m ready to go back to normal. I’m tired of getting ready in speed demon mode. It is quite stressful! Somehow by means unbeknownst to me I have made it to work on time! Which makes me wonder…could I sleep in more?

Probably shouldn’t.

  1. Interesting! I've been having really vivid dreams lately and of course I always seem to wake up at the good parts! :)

  2. Wow. Dreams are usually a manifestation of things that you have been thinking a lot about throughout the day. So it sounds like you've been thinking a lot about food! :>

  3. I hate waking up from dreams like those and feel tired from the dream. Like waking up and being tired from all that running you had to do to steal that book.

  4. I seem to always remember my dreams...I remember dreams that I had years ago. Oddly enough though, for the last few weeks I haven't remembered any. I want my dreams back...

    Is it not normal to dream in color? I'm totally going to google that- I always dream in color.

  5. I don't like the feeling of dreams, where I wake up exhausted and emotional! No fun!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
