I dreamed that I was renting office space in a building. I had two large rooms, but was only using one. I had my desk, phone and Internet in one and then a door led to another room that I was using for storage. The Tenant across the hall asked if they could temporarily rent space, and I walked to the landlords office and she said yes, but then it occurred to me that I could consolidate to one room and they could use the other room. She was ok with that too. I got lost on my way back to the office – there were many hallways and it was on the edge of a mall. Normally I entered from Dillard’s and I couldn’t find Dillard’s. Eventually I found it. I talked to them and they were very interested. They wanted to create a waiting room. We walked into the messy storage room and I was embarrassed for them to see it. The items in there were all things I could get rid of. Then I thought about moving into that room so their waiting room could be across the hall instead of around the corner. I wasn’t sure how the internet and phone would work though. They saw another waiting room with furniture and tv and really liked that.
In my dream, we had all moved to a new house. Alex invited five friends over and they were playing dress up in full costumes. They were like onesies and there were soldiers, cowboys and more. I realized that they didn’t have time to change and get to school on time and so I told them to get changed. Dylan was driving us, even though the school was within walking distance. Dylan went to pick up his friend and came back and was waiting in the driveway. Then suddenly I was a student and had to go too. I was worried about having to run laps for being late to band and I didn’t know if I could do it. Also that day we had a field trip scheduled to a science museum that included an aquarium. I didn’t want to be sweaty to go to the museum. As we were walking in, Aunt Sandy called me.
I had a strange dream. I don’t actually remember the whole thing but it had to do with leaders and society. First, people were moving into different houses in the neighborhood. It just so happened that me and my immediate neighbors all moved so we were still neighbors in the same positions- just different parts of the neighborhood. Dad was there, and there was something about ratings PF Changs orange chicken. There was an old house that was burned to the ground. There was a play in which different people performed. Mostly comedians. In the end it was a parody of Donald Trump. Then there was a battle to take over land. I was in the car with an unofficial leader (there was another older, named leader but this young man was calling he shots.) we had mapped out different strategies to take over land. The land parcels were drawn out like square pizza slices with water in between. He ended up saying that every woman needed to swim into this area of water and claim a certain parcel of land. Because he claims added up to more than the star space we ended up claiming all of that plus the next area. He jumped out of the car too fast for us to questions and it was done before we could think too much about it.
I awoke in the middle of the night with this dream.
Michael wanted to fix a grill that hasn’t worked since we moved in and said it would save us $1000 a year. (This is not a grill irl.) I wondered how it would do that but I didn’t ask.
Alex was sleeping in an attic bedroom. It was set up like Austin’s old room but if you went through the door, there was an area win a low ceiling where his bed was.
Michael and I were up there and he had a carton of milk on the floor. There was a notice on it saying that if milk was left in the attic, we were not insured. I was worried that nothing was covered in the attic and wondered if we should move his bed into the main room or even downstairs. I was worried.
We were In the bonus room discussing and saw something under the rug like a mouse.
Buster started to chase it and I was going to let him catch it. Suddenly it put its head up and it was a copper head snake. It was very small but his heady was shiny like a penny. I started yelling at Buster not to chase it, and then I hit it with a lawn chair and it flipped back and hit me. I was frantically trying to get it off of me when I woke up shaking.
I had moved into a new apartment and was getting set up and unpacked. My next door neighbor was my coworker Dan. He asked me to come over so he could show me something and I went out on his balcony and it was beautiful!! The had draped colorful scarves at the entrance and then made a canopy of white scarves that formed a tent-like top. There were trees and plants on the balcony and it was a cool and beautiful oasis. I absolutely loved it. He had also hung up a strand of white Christmas lights. I continued to set up inside but felt like everything was cluttered and so was trying to simplify. One morning I had taken some friends out to show them his balcony and he came out. I felt guilty for going there unannounced but he was very nice and invited us all to eat breakfast. There were several children at his house and they were all eating and opening gifts.
I also had several boxes of Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree I was trying to decide where they should go. I put them in a spare room that I planned to use for storage until I decided.
I was at work in Rochester, although I didn’t recognize most of the people there. I was going around and around in the center – moving a lot. Jason M. had recorded a video, and he was in red-striped pajamas and a matching old-time nightcap. He used the same video for various things, and just added onto it. Someone else was also recording a video, and Alex and Dylan ran out at the end and got in the video, but the guy didn’t get mad. I kept thinking that I should sit with agents, but I didn’t have time. At the end of the dream, I was trying to pack up and wrap up my cords and things. I was eating donuts.
We had sold our old house in Annandale and moved to the one we are currently living in. Something else broke (In RL, we’ve had a series of unfortunate events happen with issues around the house.) Michael said that he couldn’t live here anymore, and we went back to the old house. (I think that it was owned by the people who owned the restaurant we used to own.) We started discussing the sale of our new house. (When we moved in in RL, we covered the scored concrete floors with hardwood.) In my dream, we started pulling up the hardwood floors, and discussing how much we would sell the house for – if we had done improvements that would warrant increasing the price.
In the old house, we were hiding, and waiting to tell the new owners. I said that I loved the new house, and that Buster loved it, but Michael said that Buster would be fine in the old house. We decided to get breakfast, and there was a cafe down the street with an outdoor seating area. We decided to take Buster. There was a sign that said “No dogs” but there were dogs on the patio so we ignored the sign. At first, we thought there were no tables. We walked to one we thought was free, but there was a little boy sitting at it alone. Then someone pulled back a curtain and there was a table and chairs behind a rail. Someone said that was the chef’s table, but we could sit there. The waiter said he would have to get our places set, but then we noticed an empty table we had missed before, so we sat there. We ordered Buster a hamburger (plain.) They kept wanting to add sauces, etc. but we finally convinced them he could only have plain hamburger. At first, Buster was scared and hiding under the table, but then he got brave and started going under other tables and sniffing people. Then some other dogs left and Buster sniffed them and did ok. Then another dog left and reared up like a bear – like he was going to attack Buster. I threw myself over Buster so they wouldn’t fight, but was scared he would attack me.
I went into the bathroom and was trying to plug something in, and the prongs wouldn’t work. I told Michael that I couldn’t go back to the old house again. I started crying, and told Michael if he wanted to go he would have to go without me, so he took Buster and left. I was crying in the bathroom hysterically. I was trying to eat some kind of pastry. I was so upset. Then I tried to call Michael and the calls wouldn’t go through. I was devastated and thought he’d blocked my calls. I tried the hotel (?) not sure how we got to a hotel! and those calls wouldn’t go through either. I was heartbroken. Then the call went through and I was so relieved. I said I was sorry and I didn’t mean it and I shouldn’t have said it. He said, “Do you know why the call went through? I told them to let it through.”
I woke up so overwhelmed with sadness and fear…. very impactful and emotional dream.
