There is no point to this post. I feel uninspired and blah. And it’s been longer than a week since I’ve last posted. I guess I must write something or I’ll feel even more uninspired and blah.

Last night I had a crazy dream. My dreams have been getting wackier and wackier the last several nights. Probably due to lack of restful sleep. So anyway, I was at a wedding on a beach and everyone was walking around naked. The bride was looking for the groom and he was somewhere in the basement of this enormous train station. Rats were running all over the place and they were as huge as dogs and the groom was trying to get them all in these cages, but they kept barring their teeth at him and escaping. Then I started singing and my voice was so horrible that it either hypnotized the rats or killed them. All I know is that they toppled over. And everyone (still unclothed) thanked me and threw flowers at me for saving the kingdom. And the bride and the groom got married under this waterfall that just happened to be on this beach, and left for their honeymoon by walking into the ocean and crossing a bridge that materialized out of nowhere but led into Nordstrom’s.

As to what happened yesterday: I went shopping at Nordtrom’s for underwear, wanted to try on bathing suits but couldn’t find one that I liked, spoke with a friend who just got engaged and is planning her wedding, had a chat with another friend who had lived in New York during 9/11, and who still shudders at how monstrous the rats were in the subway, and listened to Adele over and over, and tried to sing along, but my daughter shushed me every time, telling me I was ruining the song.

Well, if at least nothing exciting happens in my daily life, my dreams are full of adventure.

    Isn’t it amazing how it all translates in dream life? I’m loving this. I have a big fascination with dreams and their workings.

    I just woke up from a dream that included (literally) casts of thousands.
    But no waterfalls and I did not kill any rats.

    Crazy dream. No idea what it might mean! Adele is a huge favourite in our house too, although the kiddos keep asking for Bruno Mars ‘Grenade’ as soon as we are in the car. And guess what….. we might be able to meet in the real world later this year as there is a strong possibility that we’ll be moving back to the Portland area! The excitement is building! x

    Wow!! Even your dreamz tell a story!! I’m a vivid dreamer too. Not as detailed as yours. When I was young I had nightmares do real they seemed real. My dreams got better the older I got.

    Angie…I know that feeling. You rack and rack your brain and it just comes up empty. I think what you have done is perfect…just let it roll. It is a day in your life…crazy dream or not. I am sure you will look back it this post a year from now and remember it well.

    Is it a full moon yet?

    Saying that, even now you manage to put together an insightful and thoughtful post!

    Best wishes

    Lori - I do too. And for that reason, I have been writing down some of the crazier ones.
    Ms. Moon - That is pretty crazy. I’m visualizing the casts.
    Victoria - I would love that!!!
    Jena - I still get nightmares from time to time, and wake up drenched in sweat and numb. What made yours go away?
    Jeanne - Thank you. I suppose that you are right. As to the full moon, I blame most of my craziness on it.

    wow! at least that dream had an explanation, right? I rarely remember mine, but when I do, it’s usually a doozy! hope some inspiration finds you soon!

    the bathing suit shopping would give me nightmares ;)

  9. Jessica Says:

    Haha, awesome dreams! I hope the day picks up for you. *hugs*

    What stands out in reading your description of your dream is the power of your voice.

    Even when you are feeling uninspired your voice is strong enough to slay giant rats and save the kingdom.

    Well done!

    Dreams like that can be so tiring!

  12. joyce Says:

    I think your dreams touched on all that transpired in your day with the friends that you met.
    Thank you my friend! I received the book and LOVE it!!!! xo

    Oh, Angie. I have been away for too, too long! What with one thing and another and a pile of tornadoes, end of the school year, blah, blah, blah… Anyway, I come here again and find you uninspired and STILL you manage to be inspiring and just plain funny. I have missed you, my friend. I hope all is well with you and yours.

  14. laura Says:

    LOL, Angie! Even at your uninspired, you inspire me. :) Even your dreams are creative-quirky. Summer is here and we are all out of whak–trying to transition to a new schedule. the boys are doing better than I. Happy summer, Angie. Enjoy your sweet family. Hugs.

  15. Ange Says:

    For an uninspired woman, you come up with some great stuff. I’m going to bed to see if I can manufacture something interesting from within the confines of my own subconscious
    Love to you Angie

  16. Kristin Says:

    I have been having some crazy dreams lately. I would love to know if they hold any meaning!

  17. Autumn Says:

    Hilarious! I know how you feel about being inispired. I get that way too. I was that way with the blog for months, but now I am getting back into the swing of things. Slowly. I hope that you and your family have been well and blessed! xoxo.
