I just had the worst dream...

I was visiting a friend, and it was time for me to leave. I had to fly back home. So I started to pack, but somehow all of this stuff kept appearing, and I was out of room in my suitcase. I had to leave a box (box? why in the world would I travel with a box?) of shoes behind. Shoes, people. That broke my heart. That alone made me wake up crying.

Then I get to the airport. The airport is huge, and poorly marked. (I know, I know, sounds like reality!) But trust me, this is a dream. So anyway, I can't find my gate. Oh, and suddenly I realize that my friend lives in a completely different country. So the urgency to find my plane is kicked up a couple of notches.

And then I run into this old lady, and somehow we end up trading carry-on bags. But not on purpose.

I finally find my gate but I don't have my tickets because they are in my carry-on. I have to leave the gate but I don't want to, because my plane is leaving in a few minutes.

And then, I wake up.

I hate dreams like that.

Yes, I really did just wake up at 7:00p.m. I have been napping copiously due to feeling blech.

Wow. I am so sorry. I think those kinds of dreams are so terrifying because they're so much more real than mutant blue ants chasing you through forests of yellow and pink foam (not that I've ever had that dream. twice. ;). I remember dreaming through my entire, LONG/BORING morning routine in high school, only to wake up as (in my dream) I was leaving the house. Yeah, the alarm went off and I had to do it again. I think I nearly faked an illness. Dreams suck.

I had a similar dream. Me and my daughter were in Germany, and I told her to meet me at a specific place before the plane was to leave...
