What did they expect.

    

     Being such good company I fell asleep at my MIL's last night while everyone sat on the porch and visited, LOL.   3 of them are heavy smokers and the smoke was getting to me so I didn't want to sit out there as it is humid, humidity and smoke seem to equal asthma attack lately for me so I stayed in the AC and kept my MIL company by snoring.  Helped her take a nap also, LOL.  Rick finally woke me up around 10 pm and brought me home.  My bed felt lovely.

    What to do today.  I want to mow the lawn, get a package ready and mail it.  Get some things listed in the shop as it is a free listing day, clean the house and do my arrhythmia test.  I would love it Rick would smoke something on the grill, but as he is over at his moms I think that won't happen.

    I had another bad night with weird dreams.  For 2 nights I have been dreaming of children dying.  Drowning in one  dream and some sort of accident in another.  Very disjointed disturbing dreams.  I am not taking any sleeping pills right now so can't blame it on that.  I wake up with my heart pounding and have trouble going to sleep.

    What triggers dreams like this. We haven't had any children die lately at work., that sometimes will trigger bad dreams for me.  And since I don't do house manager anymore I don't have to go to the codes involving children.  What ever is causing it I hope it stops soon.  Makes me worry about my grandbabies, irrational I know but I can't help it.

   It is going to be a nice day today.  If I get everything done I plan on a bike ride later.  Have to start training for the black hills.

   Well, I am off to get busy.  Hope all have a nice day.  take care.

I had some pretty disjointed vivid dreams lately, too.    I hope it makes you feel better to know that dreams are in symbols, and death of children wouldn't mean the real death of children, so don't worry about your little prescious ones.

I rarely remember dreams Julie. I have had the odd nightmare but I never seem to recollect dreams.  I'm lucky if I get much sleep these days in order to dream.  My meds give me lots of hot flushes and I waken up umpteen times through the night. I tend to sleep in hourly watches....sigh!  I'm sure your dream is not meant to be taken literally.  Perhaps its your minds way of showing you how very much you love them by giving you dreams which make you fear loosing them?   Just a guess.   You obviously 'crashed out' at Betty's too.   You've been working too hard!  I reckon she was pleased to have you snoring away beside her though.  It would allow her more peace and quiet than usual.    Love the photo above....Jeanie  xx

Your dreams sound stress related...especially the ones involving water.  I get those now and then; and I don't particulary like them either.  Sounds like you are burning the candle at both ends a bit.  Try and give yourself of JOYFUL ME TIME!  Take care of yourself!  Julie :)

I got through periods of unsettling very realistic dreams also. I think it's medication related sometimes.  I hope yours go away soon.
Have a good day.

I understand how having those bad dreams can make you feel.  I occasionally have them after a very stressful day at work.  Sometimes I just have them for no reason.  Whatever is causing yours, I hope you quit having them so you can sleep better.

Good for you, getting some sleep on the side. They are all adults they can entertain themselves. I hope the dreams let up hon, I've had my share lately worrying over what is happening with my daughter. (Hugs) Indigo

I'm wondering with all the stress with your MIL dying and your BIL acting up is causing you some troubled sleeping and weird dreams.  It's awful because you almost feel sleep deprived. Hoping you find some peace.  Chris
