Let's get physical, physical!

The big pitfall of being denied quality sleep is being tired most of the time. All of the time.

And I tend to yawn all the time too, which I think can appear to be rude at times- not to mention the whole contagious yawn thing.

I seriously yawn on the elliptical machine at the gym. That is just silly.

I mean, look at this thing, my instinct is to run away screaming, exert sleepiness.

My first sleep doctor told me I should exercise more to help my sleep. Good advice I suppose, but I do not think he meant to sleep at the gym.

My Big Fat Nightmare Wedding

I was happily wed last May. It was a wonderful time and our families were very supportive.

My Mother had a lot of opinions, but thankfully she was patient and is more pass
ive than the family in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, so we really had the wedding we wanted.

However, in a dream the other night, my strength did not reign!

In my long and stirring dream my Mother was terrorizing our wedding. She was canceling vendors behind my back and rescheduling with vendors like Wal-Mart and McDonald's. Can you imagine having that horrid McDonald's orange drink at your wedding?

Well, it does drudge up some nostalgia...but even so...

I was completely out of control and continually terrified by what she would think of next.....

* The dollar dance

* A pillar tiered cake with working fountains and figurines of the whole wedding party?

* A Hummer limo

* A reading of the Adam's Rib story from the bible?

All of our wishes and values were being stomped on and snuffed out and yet time kept snowballing towards our wedding day, there was no time to change things back or cancel because we had all these obligations we had to our friends and family who were excited to be there...

I woke myself up giving my Mother a piece of my mind.

I was very upset and I told my sleeping husband we were never getting married again.

A Dangerous Secret

In my dream last night I learned that I was the bearer of a secret that would rock the world.

I had to deal with the burden and choose if I dare release the information that could cause great pain for my loved ones and may have the potential to spark dangerous rioting and political uprising.

I was in agony because I knew that the secret needed be shared, but I was not sure how it could be shared without chaos.

I was burdened with the responsibility of justice and the fear of unbridled anger!

I drew in my courage and made the decision to release the truth:

After failed diplomatic relations with the coffee growing nations of the world, the American Government had banned true coffee beans from entering the country and had secretly replaced true, satisfying coffee with an advanced form of Folgers Crystals.

Can you imagine the backlash!?!???

I mean, do not drink coffee, but I do know that once people realized that they were not actually suffering from painful malignant brain tumors, massive depression, early onset Parkinson's disease, and sleep dysfunction, they would scrape together enough combined energy to cause quite a scene!

Toasty Phone Fingers

My husband came to bed last night and I was already asleep.

He must have stirred me, so I turned to him and said:

"Would you like some mittens?"

He declined, so I said,

"Oh, I'm on the phone with someone..."

(It must have been hard to dial wearing mittens!)

And then he says I trailed off into senseless rambling.

I wonder who I was talking to on the phone, was it you?

I was having an intense chase dream a few weeks ago. I was running and trying to gain distance between my enemy and my person.

I had an unidentified accomplice who I was shouting commands and common chase exclamations at:

"Let's split up!"

"Watch out!"

"Don't look back!"

At the climax of the dream, my commands became audible to my sleeping cat and husband.

Within the dream, I saw a friendly vehicle up ahead and I made a "General Lee Leap" into the

...then I woke up laying with my back on the radiator. I had made the "General Lee Leap" right out of my bed!
