Dreams

You know how people often have that dream as a child where you go to school in nothing but your underwear?

Occasionally I still have that dream. Like when we first moved and I had to take The Boy to his new school. I had a dream that I was pulling into the drop off line at school, where the teachers come and get your kid from the car, only to look down and realize I had forgotten to put a shirt on. I panicked and then I woke up.

However, more frequently I have another re-occurring dream that completely irritates me. I dream that I have to use the restroom but I can only find one that is in the middle of a room full of people, or has doors that are really low so people can see you while you are doing your business. But the one that really irritates me is the dream I have about trying to find a restroom that is private,but when I do find it it's ALWAYS disgustingly dirty so I am forced to use the one that has no door on it, or is completely exposed. In these dreams I tell myself to hurry up and "tinkle" before someone comes in, but inevitably some stranger walks in and I try to act normal, as if peeing in front of people is an everyday occurrence that I'm OK with.

These dreams are so vivid and I wake up feeling embarrassed and can't stop thinking about them...Hence this post. Perhaps writing about it will rid them from my mind...Or perhaps it will make you think I am crazy...Maybe both are true.

I have those same bathroom dreams. I hate them! In fact, I had one last night where men kept coming into the unlabeled women's restroom, which of course had stalls with huge gaps in them. So, sister K, you're only as crazy as I am, which may not be much consolation, but it's all I can offer.:) KHB

Yes I have those reacurring dreams too but I had a dream last night that I hope does not become one of them. I was dreaming I was at work (in labor&delivery) and babies were being born one after the other and I had trouble getting the patients to the rooms fast enough before they would deliver. It became a nightmare when I pulled back the sheet and was delivering a baby from a man Yep that's right the baby was coming out under the penis. AGH!
I think I am working way too much and the stress has gotten to me. I didn't stay asleep long enough to see if he was going to breastfeed!
