I'm Taking Control

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.


  1. Lyndee you made me laugh! I am going to that website to interpret some of my dreams!

  2. Phew! This wasn't about throwing out the good food kinda post.

    Lyndee, you are so funny! I have had more dreams like that than I can count and I wake up and freak out because I'M DREAMING. I'm not really in a bathroom so I run TO the bathroom and heave a huge sigh of relief that I made it. Good grief! As if we don't have enough to worry about in a day.

    Your situation is unique in that those of us that have 12 and 13 year olds......they are old enough to babysit for a bit..... You not being able to leave yours makes it that much harder to get away.

    Too funny. I didn't know there was a website that interpreted dreams. I don't know why I didn't know that..... You can find everything on the web right? Why NOT a dream interpreter site. Just never thought to look! Now I know!

    Glad you were able to get away with Chris. Those together by yourself times are so important.

  3. whew! this post made me laugh!!! dreams are SOOO interesting! loved reading yours and relating and learning about the website and EVERYTHING....too early in the morning to go any further than that....

  4. I'd never thought about finding a dream interpreter on the internet. My problem is by the time I'm completely awake I've usually forgotten the dream.

    Hurray for a date!

  5. Lauren, it was one of the many productive things I've been introduced to at work. There are a couple other things I often dream about that I want to check out.

    Rachel, I have vowed never to outlaw anything from myself. I will not deprive myself. Food is not something I want to obsess about. Granted, it would be a good idea, but....Nope, can't do it.

    Misty, you've got to let me know if you find anything interesting on the site. My coworker looked it up so I've never personally checked it out (just watched her).

    Chastina, just think of all the things you could find out about yourself on there. Mine made SO much sense. I have lots of recurring things, like running and never getting tired, the locker, remember my lunch code, etc... I should get on there tonight and check out some of those.

  7. Thanks, Adult Diaper. I'll have to take that into consideration.

  8. Hurray for control of life, of bladders, and dreams. I am glad you got a date, even if it was only 15 minutes long.
    My mom and I are going to have so much fun with that Dreamdictionary site. Thanks for the info.

  9. Seriously, Natalie--I started writing down some of the recurring themes I have. For instance, dialing a phone number and always being off by one number and having to restart...or when I'm trying to concentrate on an image, everything goes blurry. There is a lot in my mind that I'd love to understand.


I love hearing from you!
