Do you ever have a weird dream and then you wake up and it's become a physical thing??? For instance, some years ago when I was working 70 or so hours a week with a man who was developmentally disabled, I had a dream that I was defending him from some guys who were trying to abuse him. I swung my fist, and to my surprise, I made contact with Peter's head!! I had hit him right between his eyes!!! What a rude awakening for both of us!
So this past week has been a bit rough, sleep-wise. Being able to go to sleep and stay asleep long enough to get rested has seemingly been impossible. Not to mention that whatever's going on in my daytime life sometimes carries on to my dreams. I knew the girls were coming this morning, so somehow I was dreaming about bad children. Dunno why, because the girls are pretty good most of the time. But anyway, in my dreams, they'd been playing in mud and then had somehow opened the gate from the backyard and were heading toward the road.
Then somehow I came up with a little boy to keep too. He did something really, really bad and as I was spanking him for being so naughty, I was woken up by the feeling of solid flesh under my hand! It just so happened that Peter actually got to spend the night at home last night, and much to both of our surprise, his shoulder became the perfect substiture for a fat little kid's thigh in my dream. LOL
We both got so tickled, and the more one of us would giggle, the more the other one of us would giggle. It was infectious, and although I had slapped him and woken us up, it was so funny and relaxing to wake up laughing instead of him being upset with me. So now I have had a fun beginning for the day and every single time I think about it, I start giggling again.
