I don’t have nightmares anymore… haven’t in so long I can’t remember. When I was little I had a reoccurring dream that the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood ate my sister. I still giggle about that one. He always chased her around my bed in our first house in
… I had that dream for YEARS! Arizona
When hubby left I had weird dreams – like saying good-bye to him over and over, weird because we have NEVER used that word in deployment. We chose another word when he left as good-bye seemed so final. There were even times in the beginning that one would say, “OK, I love you, bye” and hang up, ONLY to call right back and correct it with the proper salutation. Deployment makes us VERY superstitious.
Anyhow, last night I had a dream that I was holding Diva walking down a wash with other ladies when a rush of water, like Tsunami rush, came at us. I ran with her in my arms and then tucked her into this rock formation and held onto her with all my might. Just as I was losing my grip a door in a tree opened (hey, it’s a dream) and we went inside. We could hear the water hitting the door and I was scared that the pressure would break the door… then I woke up. It was 4:47AM… an hour before I needed to get up but I couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid there, checked my BB for Hubby emails (there were none!), tossed and turned and finally decided to go sleep with Diva. Incidentally I know nothing about dream sequences or what they mean but I find it interesting.
Her bed is HORRIBLE. I am investing in a pillow top or egg crate as soon as we move! Her pillow is flat and her bed is hard. No wonder the kids up at 6:30 am on Saturday, she is sleeping on concrete! Its on my list of things I will buy when we move…
