Weird dream.

Any dream analysts reading my blog today??

I woke up a couple of times from this very bizarre dream, but each time I was able to fall back asleep and pick up where I left off.

The first part that I can remember, is being in a house with my best friend, husband, and another girl. Justin was on the couch with this other girl; who I soon realized was a girl in our college classes that used to work with Justin. She was married about 2 weeks after us last June.

I am guessing Justin proposed the idea of being a polygamist (Big Love, anyone??) and this girl was a new fling in that proposal. However, jealousy completely consumed me as I walked outside with my best friend.

Once outside, I threw a huge fit hoping that he would come outside to see what was going on. Then, VERY RANDOMLY, a guy comes up to the porch saying I won a trip but that I had to go on my own. For some reason, I thought it was a huge scam and I chose not to go. I am not sure where that little blurb fits into the whole dream, but it was there.

After being outside, my BFF and I went inside to go to bed. I walked past the couch where my husband and "other girl" were still snuggled up watching tv. I stomped past, again hoping that he would follow me to figure out what was going on. No such luck.

At this point, I think I woke up. When I fell back asleep, I slipped back into a point in my dream where me must have apologized to me. I was reading a note on the fridge from him telling me how he loved me more than anything, etc. However, behind that note to me was a note from her to him. It made me mad, but I was still happy to have that note from him.

After this, it gets a little choppy because I was having to hit snooze to continue the dream.

I can remember telling Justin's mom about the polygamy that her son wanted in our relationship. Her response to me was, "well, he is your husband so you have to go with it." That is definitely not the answer that I would get from her for ANYTHING. Ha.

One of the last parts that I remember is going to a Missouri football game. We had to go back and forth between different people to get enough tickets for everyone (including this other woman). My best friend and I ended up sort of wandering without everyone else and doing our own things.

From what I can remember, this is where the dream ended. I know there are a couple more pieces that I have forgotten at this point, but you get the idea of the weirdness.

So what does this dream mean? One might think that I am craving more attention from my husband, but I don't feel like this is the case. He showers me with attention. I did have a little breakdown internally yesterday about us being on different shifts and not spending much time together. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Do you have any insight?? :)

Sounds C-R-A-Z-Y to me!

This is proof that you shouldn't drink immediately before bed!

It sounds like a battle w/sacrifice to me, especially in light of your little breakdown - your frustration w/having to sacrifice work schedules for one-on-one time w/your other half. This is reflected in your dream where your husband was "choosing to spend his time elsewhere" (RE: the "other woman") when it's really just being dictated by work schedules in your awake-life.

And I love that your "Dream MIL" basically told you "you've gotta do what you've gotta do". You gave yourself your OWN advice in your SLEEP! :) Bonus-discovery: you must hold your MIL's way of succinctly speaking her mind in high-regard if she's the one your brain chose to "tell you" that. ;)

I am ridiculously-over-analytical by nature, lol. ;)

Thanks for the note on my "weigh in" post. I left you some info in your "weird dream" post on the June Nest board... Let me know if you want me to send you the diets that I have! :)

And good luck with the dream...I have some strange ones all the time!
