I've gotta say, I can feel myself taking control of my life again. You know those dreams where you're trying to open your locker but can't remember the combination? Well, I conquered that years ago. If you just turn the knob clockwise, all the way around twice, then counter-clockwise once, the clockwise to any number, it will open. Doesn't matter what numbers you start and end on, it'll open. Try it in your next dream. There are little things like this that I've learned, but last night was a major breakthrough. Are you ready for personal? If not, better not read on.
I have dreams where I have to go to the bathroom. Maaaannnnnyyyyy years ago, I went to the bathroom in my dream and I found out that...well, it wasn't so much a dream. Now, I have better bladder control. Well, since having kids, that's not entirely true, but the point is, I haven't been wetting the bed. Back to the dreams. In the dreams, I am looking for a bathroom. Often, I'll find a bathroom (with stalls) but in each stall I check, there's no toilet. Or, if there is a toilet, there's no door. Who wants to go to the bathroom with no door? So, I checked this out on dreamdictionary.com and found out it's because I crave privacy. I am wanting just me time. Hello! With a 4-yr-old contantly climbing on you and kids that feel they need to be touching you in order to have a conversation, this is so very true. Chris and I often talk about craving a date. It's harder to find a babysitter for a 13 and 12-yr-old. My dream last night start ordinary. I was in Sunday School and I told Chris needed to use the restroom. I go in and there's someone in the left stall, so I take the other one. First off, there's no toilet in there. "No worries," I tell myself, "If you sit down, one will magically appear." Well, obsticle number 2 showed up and the door wouldn't shut. Course, I had a door, so that was pretty good. I told myself, "No worries. The door will shut." Guess what! The lock worked. So, I sat down...and I....well....it's my blog so I can say what I want...I PEED! Well, the toilet did not magically appear. I walk out of the stall and I had made a mess all over someone's boots. Mind you, the boots magically appeared in my stall with no feet in them. They were completely irate over the situation. So, it may not be perfect, but I'm taking over my life. And guess what?!! Chris and I had lunch today with no kids in tow. It was a most glorious 15 minutes.
