Weird Dreams

What is it with peo­ple hav­ing weird dreams lately?

I had one last night that was even weird for me (and that’s going a far piece). My par­ents had moved to a new house, but some­thing was wrong with it so they moved back to the house where I most­ly grew up, in Tuck­er. They built on to it in ways that hon­est­ly would­n’t fit on that prop­er­ty. (Maybe because I’ve been think­ing about the addi­tion for the Cas­tle?) Any­way, I can’t begin to describe the addi­tion, but it was in the base­ment, and get­ting to it required very weird acro­bat­ics. I was ter­ri­fied for Dad­dy’s sake, because I knew that his back just can’t take that sort of thing.

Katie’s room was occu­pied by a cousin who was stay­ing with them for a while (some­thing that does hap­pen fre­quent­ly). Odd thing, though, this cousin is actu­al­ly about to have her first baby, but in the dream, she was maybe 7 at the most. Katie was about the same age. (She’s the cousin whose father died a few months back. That’s Dad­dy’s side of the fam­i­ly, and it’s Dad­dy’s broth­er who just had a stroke, so it’s pos­si­ble that there’s a con­nec­tion there.)

My broth­er was gib­ber­ing. I mean real­ly, just talk­ing away at ran­dom. Say what you will about him, he has­n’t ever been one to bab­ble. It just isn’t in him.

I could­n’t get my eyes com­plete­ly open dur­ing the dream, and I was real­ly upset about some­thing. I was try­ing to find my keys and car and leave, but I could­n’t see well enough. My eyes seemed full of sleep, and I just could­n’t wake up completely.

Come to think of it, my eyes felt like they did when I wore the extend­ed wear con­tacts and slept in them—before I put in the required eye drops. (Maybe that was relat­ed to the fact that I was sup­posed to go to the eye doc­tor this morn­ing for a con­tact lens exam.)

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.
