Dreams are good for something, then! :-)
Snowed here, too. Right now, it is 12 degrees F....brrr!
My dreams over the past week have included:
1 in which I killed 8 people, took their bodies to a self-serve cemetery, and then had to explain to the cops why I was burying 8 people in the span of a week. I'm pretty sure they were doing gardening, then they tried to rape me, so I hit them over the head with a shovel.
Another dream in which I wasn't sure who the father of my baby is (I'm 9 weeks pregnant, and I haven't so much as hugged any other man in the 7+ years I've been married to Yaakov, so I've got a pretty good guess as to who the father is.)
A third dream in which this guy who teased/bugged me throughout high school gave me a hug and then started making out with me and admitted that he'd always loved me.
conclusion: I'm having crazy dreams.
Found out that I'd been randomly dropping K off at two different schools, and nobody bothered to tell me... turned out she was happier at the 'other' school. (there's a school half a block away from us which is non-religious, and she goes to a school a block away from our new house - 4 blocks away from our current house which is religious). But for some reason she either hadn't noticed or decided not to tell me that I was sending her to the two schools intermittently. At any rate, I realized that I'd been sending her to the non-religious school more often which meant that she was going to miss out on two milestone parties (receiving her prayer book and her book of Genesis), and I was all upset and couldn't figure out how to fix it....
Also noteworthy - in Israel, instead of uniforms, most of the schools require that you wear a plain t-shirt with just the school symbol on it (and pants or skirt are at the student's discretion). She was walking around with the wrong symbol and no one noticed.
Wow, TriL, some women get heartburn....you apparently get dreams!
An early Mazel Tov, btw (merit's hashem)
I have a question, cause I don't remember how schools work in Israel, having never sent anyone to school there. Which school are you paying tuition to, and HOW could they not notice a girl coming consistently who isn't on their lists? Isn't the second school going to start demanding tuition?
all tech related. The first part of the dream was really geeky but I don't remember what it was, I remember I
wanted to talk about it.
In the second half we were driving near my old neighborhood and we were testing out these miniture GPS devices
we had gotten at whatever tech event we were at. Ignat and his wife were in the front seat and I started to
fall asleep in the back seat, I was trying to wake myself up but I couldn't. I usually can't fall asleep
sitting up but I was starting to lean over in the dream while IGnat was testing and reviewing his miniture GPS
device as he drove.
both schools are public schools.
no tuition. I want to know how they didn't notice she had the wrong shirt and books.
It's getting more than a little disturbing how I keep appearing in zooer's dreams, considering that we've never even met.
interesting. In both dreams we worked together, you might have been my department manager and were at some
of technical event.
It is fascinating how dreams mix elements of the distant past with elements of the present.
In this week's episode (heh), my parents decided to limit my computer time because I needed to focus more on my school work. And yes, this really did happen ... nearly thirty years ago.
So I thought to myself, "no problem, I've got a car, and a laptop tethered to my smartphone, I'll just hang out at the school and do my computer stuff there."
(I suppose XKCD 519 can be included herein by reference ... retroactively and anachronistically.)
At least a certain pointy-haired ex-boss didn't make an appearance!
Cannot get my mind to stay in the present.
I keep forcing myself back into reality, but it my mind won't stay here.
I keep looking around and being surprised at where I am (physically)
I expect to be in Newburgh, high school, the college dorms, but nothing in the past 15 years or so.
I wonder if it's a hormonal thing.
(btw, in case anyone's wondering, I'm 25 weeks pregnant)
I can remember hanging out on your bed in Banot like it was 10 minutes ago.
This is called "wishful thinking".
I expect to be in Newburgh, high school, the college dorms, but

It's pretty much a constant. School days are long gone, often decades ago, but those dreams just keep coming.
For me they pretty much take one of three forms:
1. Same dorm, same roommates, but it's either the beginning or end of the year and something's not quite right
2. We're more than a few weeks into the fall semester and I forgot to sign up for marching band
3. Why the f**k did I sign up for graduate school? (and haven't attended a single class)
