WAKING UP IS HARD TO DO (with apologies to Neil Sedaka)

Here's something odd. I woke up, made the bed, groomed, and picked out some clothes to wear. I don't remember owning the pants that I picked out, but oh well, they were in my closet so why not. And then I picked out some socks, which were an odd texture but they worked so I put those on. And then (by the way, I don't think it's grammatically correct to start a sentence with the word "and", but it's my "voice" so I'm doing it-grammar police beware), I didn't feel like I was "right" so I walked around my room. It just didn't feel like my room or something...so guess what?...I WOKE UP! I had dreamt the entire waking up experience. I had to wake up all over again. No wonder the clothing didn't feel or look right or feel like it belonged to me. It was dream clothing. What a drag. I really have issues with waking up. It takes me forever to get out of my bed. Really. I can stay in my bed for hours. Yea. I know. But to have to wake up TWICE???? Wow...that is just not fair...no bueno....cruel, in fact....

But I'm up....or as I used to say when I was little, "I'm up already, GOSH!!!"

Now if only my mom was here to have hot, milky tea and buttered toast waiting on the table for me to stumble upon, the day would be complete....well, except for the tea part, I guess... :)

I had a dream last night that someone stole my wallet. Then, I woke up and told Jacob who didn't care and that seemed so odd, so then I REALLY woke up and Jacob did care. I turned off the alarm, got my purse out of the car, turned the alarm back on and went to sleep. . .hugging my credit cards. phew.

I had a dream that I woke up in an igloo, surrounded by 2.5 feet of snow and freezing cold temperatures....no, wait! That wasn't a dream! THAT WAS MY REALITY IN CINCINNATI, OHIO!!!!!

i think that is WAY WEIRD that you and emily had a similar dream at the same time.
