I have vivid and unusual dreams, when I remember them. Often, they play out like movies. If dreams can tell us anything about ourselves, then this dream journal should tell a lot about me! (Let's hope it doesn't just say I'm a crazy lady.)

I Scare The Darkness

My dream last night was a boring one, probably a result of my focusing so much on trying to reach my weight loss goal this week. I dreamed simply that I couldn't find the very light-weight dress that I usually wear for my weigh-ins and so had to wear something heavier that would add half a pound to my weight on the scale.

See? I told you it was boring!

However, my husband told me about a dream that he had last night, and it made me laugh so I had to share it here.

He dreamed that I was downstairs and he was in bed. (At the time, this was actually true.) At the same time, the darkness around him felt alive, like an evil, lurking presence that wanted to do harm. In order to protect the rest of us, his beloved family, he let the darkness enter himself in the hopes that he could control it and keep it from hurting me or the kids.

In the dream, he stood up to go use the bathroom, all the while trying to keep control of the dark presence inside of him. As he and the Darkness within him approached the top of the stairs on the way towards the bathroom, he heard me coming up the stairs.

When the Darkness inside him became aware that I was coming, it screamed like a girl inside him, took complete control of him and made him run like a timid child back to the bed and then left him and the room completely.

So, he explained, the dream meant that I'm so scary even evil incarnate runs away!

We both had a good laugh about that dream!

Decadent Food

I had the silliest dream last night.

Before bed, Robert and I had been talking about our plan to eat really healthy this week. So of course, I dreamed that we were at a hotel and it was the next day, and there were master chefs there who kept giving us really decadent food. I knew we had completely sabotaged our diets, but the food was so good. I can even remember sampling a chocolate dessert and actually TASTING it in my dream. I was thinking how delicious it was and that I was going to eat it slowly and really savor it.

I woke up relieved that I hadn't really eaten all that food, but feeling as if I'd enjoyed it nonetheless.
