aloha friday: sweet dreams and not so sweet ones

I woke up a couple minutes ago in a panic. It was only 2:00am but it felt like I’d just lost my entire life. You know – bad dream. I get them a lot these days – usually in the form of someone I thought liked or loved me not liking and loving me. It hurts a little but I can look at them and they are there loving me and I move on. I’m not sure why I keep having them, I think I’m pretty happy and content these days. I guess the lack of real momma drama means my dreams are making up the deficit? Well, dream world, consider us even. For like a bajillion years.

This dream? So much worse. I loathe to type the details because I’m trying to stop obsessing about the dream and how horribly real the whole thing was but the ending? I lost both my children. Yeah, gut wrenchingly terrible basically. Enough to get me online in the middle of the night against all my instincts telling me that not sleeping when the baby is sleeping is stupid.

I checked on both my babies to see they were asleep, breathing and well. I tried to get my husband to hug me in his sleep. It wasn’t enough. I almost turned the tv on to watch some Teen Disney but I don’t want to wake the whole house… So… It’s 2:45 am and I am blogging because I’m still afraid to go back to bed. I’m feeling a teensy bit silly, but while I’m here…

How do you cheer yourself up after a bad dream?

  1. Man I hate that. Hopefully blogging it out got it out of your system. I always have dreams that Im falling and it just feels like your heart is about to leap out of your chest.


  2. I usually just sit there and talk to myself telling me that it was just a dream. Now go back to sleep and think Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp!


  3. I hate dreams like that! They seem to stick with me for a while 😦 I’m sorry. I usually get up and have a cup of hot chocolate, kiss my kids and then watch something on the DVR until I’m tired again.


  4. First of all, I’m sorry you had such an awful dream. ewwwwwwwww Gave me chills just reading it. What I usually do is sit straight up – focus and realize I’m not sleeping anymore, and lay back down & cuddle with the hubby. He usually grabs ahold & I’m in the real world once again. Everything is good.
