This is the Lesser "I Have a Dream" post...  
So. I've been having the weirdest, most vivid dreams that I've had in the entirety of my life.

Usually, my most bizarre dreams are helped along by medicine of some sort. Or fevers, even. I still remember a dream in which I was chased by a vampire when I was about ten. Of course, I had the flu, then.

Now, however, I'm fever and even medicine-free; I haven't put a pill in my mouth in over a week. From someone who was downing six or seven at bedtime for the last two years, it's a strange feeling. Yet, the dreams persist. And they're exhausting dreams, not the happy, fluffy ones that I would prefer.

I had a dream where a photographer friend of mine and I were like a two woman Charlie's Angels, with feathered hair, guns and a give 'em hell attitude. We kicked butt all over the place! We may have even kicked butt that didn't deserve it, in the interest of just being thorough. I had a dream where we were using a contractor to fix up our house (but it wasn't OUR house, it was the house I grew up in at 214 E. Vilbig Street, which no doubt DOES need some work). The contractor was an idiot and brought me a stuffed animal instead of a carpet swatch - I remember looking at him and saying, "This isn't going to fly with my husband. You're going to have to do better than that."

I had a dream where I cleaned my kids' rooms and went through all of their clothes, separating out the ones that didn't fit. It was so realistic that I was exhausted afterward when I awoke and that particular chore wasn't done.

But I did it already! I DID!

I've also had far-fetched, kooky dreams about the cast of Supernatural (I cooked for them, sigh), one about Catherine Zeta-Jones (she was nice), and one about having another baby (God forbid).

My subconscious is making me exhausted! It's to the point that I don't want to go to sleep because I work harder then than I do when I'm awake!

Huh. Maybe I should work harder when I'm awake so that I don't have weird dreams when I'm asleep. Maybe I'll even go for a run. (Talk about far-fetched.)

anyway, I think it's worth a shot.

and one about having another baby (God forbid).  Amen.

That or maybe pouring the zaniness into your writing. I've seen where you have gone back and found a few things that were just sitting...maybe find some more? I dunno. Maybe Baby Elyse needs to show Auntie Pansy how to make mud pies? Auntie getting coerced into doing that would be a riot! HA!

Could be that you're just winding down from all of the hula-baloo from Christmas. You did do a lot of baking and making. *nods* And then there was Dad. And just ya know...busy house.

No wonder you're exhausted! My kids had a night like that last night - really vivid bad dreams so I was up most of the night too. (dare I say having the family over caused it?). Hopefully your subconscious will take a vacation soon and let you rest!

I've been having strangely vivid dreams too. I also normally have them when I'm feverish or something, so it's been strange having such strange memorable dreams consecutive nights, and then I wake up feeling just as sleepy as when I went to sleep. :P So I feel ya.

But you know what they say about the way to a man's heart, girlfriend. Uh huh. *nods*

Bizarro dreams are sooo exhausting. But, they're cheaper than therapy? I say welcome them, enjoy/accept them (and let yourself take naps if you need to). And of course regale your flist with dream stories!

Sounds like your subconcious needed to be unleashed. *g*
