Strange Dreams

Sunday, April 22, 2012

The weekends fly by way too fast. Hubby and I had all of these plans of getting so much done at home this weekend and it didn't happen. LOL.

Yesterday we spent the day at my MIL's so we got nothing done at home then.

Today we slept in which we both needed as we are both worn out but it does eat into our free time. We had to get up and fix breakfast and lunch as our son had to work. Hubby cleaned the pet cages. Reek wanted a lot of attention so hubby messed with him. I gave them all their hair ball treatment.

It was cold today and cloudy and sprinkled off and on. It wasn't much fun to be outside. We are expecting a cold night so we had to cover all our plants with floating ground cover and more the transplants back into the green house.

Today is the day that my maternal grandfather, paternal grandmother, and my MIL died. The last few days I've been having a lot of dreams about my maternal grandma. She and I were very close. I seldom remember dreams. I have weird ones. In one dream, my grandmother is sick and I am at her house. My husband is there and my aunt's husband who I could not stand. No one in the family could stand him, including my cousins. Only my aunt. My grandmother's house, which was always immaculate was in disrepair. The ceiling was caving in from water damage. My husband and uncle were trying to deal with that. I went into the bathroom and the tub was leaking and I was trying to figure out how to dry it up and also how to fix it. My grandma, who actually was not my grandma, was lying on the couch. I told her that I really wanted her to come up and stay with me as her home was not fit to live in at the time. I then woke up. In the second dream I am in a ICU unit. My grandmother is in a recliner by the bed. There are rings of water on the floor where paint cans have been taken up and left a ring. I tell the nurses that I want them to take good care of my grandma and 3 of them take turns gently slapping each other in the face. I demand that they stop. One apologizes and has a tear that runs down her face. I I am hugging my grandmother and she turns into a bird. It doesn't seem odd to me. She then turns into a cat and is very affectionate with me. I have this intense feeling of love going between me and the cat who is purring and rubbing on my face. I wake up. Very strange. Not sure what to make of these dreams.

    Whenever I dream about leaky walls, ceilings, floors, water pouring down inside a house--it's about overwhelming sadness about a situation and a sense that everything is coming apart at the seams. I used to have recurrent dreams like that about the house where I lived with my ex, both while I lived there and while it was in the process of being sold. I've never had dreams like that about my homes with Bill.

    Strange dreams indeed!
    I was very close to my grandparents and in my dreams they are never dead, and when I wake up, my heart breaks all over again, because, I then realize I can't call or visit them, and they are dead.
    I guess dreams are supposed to mean something about a person, I just don't remember what.

    Tish, this probably will sound nuts, but are you taking a lot of vitamin supplements? I forget which one I determined was causing me problems, but I used to take a supplement that caused some really restless, wakeful nights. When you waken in the middle of a dream, your mind remembers bits and pieces that it jumbles together into a long dream. I changed supplements and the dreams settled down.

    I think you are just thinking about those you love who have already passed. I rarely have dreams or don't remember them. Hope all continues to go well with you and yours.
    Blessings, love and hugs,

    Neat dreams! Thanks for sharing. I am quite sure your grandma is just reaching out to you to say hi. emoticon Perhaps her animal morphing is meant to assure you that she's free now.

    But wow, I can't believe you have a triple anniversary date. That's got to be very hard for you. I'm sending you lots of love!

    Hi Morticia, I do believe that dreams are meant to send us messages that we need to know. I hope you can figure out what message is being conveyed to you in these dreams. Have a happy Monday!

    I love dreams.. I dream a lot and usually remember what happened.. sometimes not and it makes me crazy trying to remember them.
    I have many times thought of buying a book to help me figure mine out, but haven't as of yet.. but if it really makes me crazy, I google it.. LOL

    I like what Clover2 said.. it makes sense.

    Dreams fascinate me although I seldom remember them. When I do, I wake up and think, "What was THAT about?"

    Have a great Monday!

    I seldom remember my dreams! When I do remember they are usually dandys. I have good ones I love and some bad ones! The worse I cn remember was bening at my fathers funeral! Fifteen years later when he really dies it was exactly how I had dreamed it; funeral parlor and all! I sat up in bed at the time sweating and sobbing! I didn't think my dad would ever die!!! Your dream seemed to be a good one! An adventure actually! sleeping is suppose to let us rest but it doesn't always work out that way! I bet you woke up tired?

    I'm looking at the book that I have, I concentrated on the second dream. I looked up hospitals, cats and birds, I tried to look up some on dreaming about relatives but couldn't find it right off the bat.
    From what has been going on in your life, some of the things make sense. Dreaming about the hospital is showing that there is something in your life that you feel like you would like to have healed. That is why we go to hospitals, to have something that we feel we can't heal ourselves needs to be taken care of. The nurses, that they were doing things that you couldn't control and didn't care for means that well how they put it is it "usually represents your own stoic refusal to cut yourself any slack or acknowledge your needs."
    The book was bird specific, do you know what kind it was?
    The cat, they say that a cat that is in need of care or rescue "typically represents a side of the dreamer that is not being supported by present circumstances."
    Considering everything that has been going on in your life recently, some of this does make sense.
    I don't know if it will help any, but it seems like all the pressure is getting to be a lot!

    emoticon Did your dreams last what seemed a long or a short time? I usually don't remember mine either. Seems to me you miss your G-ma.

    Me too, I pulled out my book and I am taking a look at it. I'm not too sure how good I am at this, but I will look to see if there is anything I can figure out.

    I have my nose in a dream book trying to find out! emoticon

    Did you eat before you went to bed? That sometimes makes me have weird dreams.
