Sweet Dreams

Ever since Santa gifted me with a memory foam topper for my bed and matching pillows, sleep has been a whole new ballgame for me. The wombats are finally resting comfortably and I am getting ache-free sleep. It is glorious. It has also taken my dreams to the next step and the things my little brain is coming up with while I slumber are full on biz.arre.

*First there was the dream where I was visiting a dear friend and it was time to hop in the shower. In my wacky little brain, showers were housed in refrigerators and I was used to climbing into a side-by-side to clean all the nooks and crannies. But this fridge was one of those newfangled ones with the freezer on the bottom and I was so distraught at trying to squeeze my body onto the shelves. I had to empty the fridge out completely and then arrange my tookus in a manner that would actually allow me to get clean. And sitting down? On glass shelves? Neked? So disturbing.

*A few nights later I dreamed that Dandee and I were having a Wii tournament and we got into a huge row because we were fighting over the Jack Nicholson Mii because he did this fancy high kick after every turn. Um, yeah. Okay.

*Last night, after turning off our lights at 8:42 pm (which is another story in itself) I fell into a dream that consisted largely of a girlfriend's family, a unicorn, egg salad sandwiches and Meatloaf (the singer, not the food.) Nuff said.

On New Year's Eve we played a game and one of the questions was "would you rather go without dreams completely or suffer the occasional terrifying nightmare?" Because I'm a total ninny, I chose to go without dreams because nightmares freak me out but with all the fun I'm having with my crazy brain, I'd like to revise my answer.

So funny! What the creepy dreams? I've been having some pretty bizarre ones, too, but mine come without a memory foam topper.

Marilyn said...

I rarely have dreams that I remember. Maybe I need a better mattress?

Glad to know that I'm not the only one who dreams in crazy!

Heather said...

Yeah, I've had some strange ones this last week. Maybe it's just in the air?

Sara said...

I am having some wild dreams over here as well, but I think it has to do with pregnancy. I love that you had a dream with "Meatloaf" in it. So funny!

Michele said...

Maybe your memory foam is laced.

Dandee said...

A wii tournament, eh? Sounds fun. Oh, and I would totally let you have the Jack Nicholson mii. He freaks me out.

If you would have changed you answer I think it would have gone differently.

We need to chat. My dreams are insane. Just the other night I dreamt I bought a couch from Pier One that was made out of empty glass bottles and wicker. I too, sleep on a memory foam topper. Coincidence???

Sarah said...

I had a heart stopper of a scary dream the other night - I hate those, you wake up and feel like your you can't breathe and your heart is going to explode right out of your chest. I'm so glad for you that you are more comfortable at night though, those memory foam toppers look heavenly.

I remember my dreams every morning almost in full detail. One morning I talked to Clay for 20 minutes just telling him my different from from the previous night. It's interesting what your brain thinks on its own.

I don't know Karen. I still say dreamless is better...

I think you should go to Dream Moods A-Z website and do some analysis! For example, refrigerator: "To see or open a refrigerator in your dream, represents your chilling personality and/or cold emotions. The dream may also be telling you need to put some goal, plan, or situation on hold. Alternatively, it signifies that you have found and accomplished what you have been unconsciously seeking." You could have some serious fun on the internet today!

I sleep on a memory foam topper, too, and I have the most vivid, psycho dreams, too. Of course, that could be from the anti-depressants and sleeping pills.
