Not So Sweet Dreams

I tend to talk in my sleep.

Usually it's just garbled nonsense.

Although one time, I held an imaginary conference call.  Scott says I handled myself very well.

Another time, I muttered and then rolled over and punched him three times.  (He wasn't as impressed with that one.)

Last night, I screamed.  Loudly.  Scott was up later than me, and came running up the stairs thinking one of the children had died.  But it was just me doing a little dream screaming.

I can't even remember what I was dreaming about.  But I do remember his hands shaking as he calmed me down and I fell back to sleep.

Was I mad?  Scared?  Hungry?  (Don't judge me - I get low blood sugar.)  Who knows.

I think I need to take a cue from Ashley, who assures me every morning that her night was filled with lovely dreams of unicorns walking over rainbows.  No screaming material there.  Except for that one time, when she dreamt that Aidan turned into a hula girl.  Don't ask.

I used to talk in my sleep all the time. It's actually happened less and less since I've been married. Apparently, my sleep self is shy with an audience.

I try to save my screaming for work. Maybe I should take a cue from you....

I hate those dreams where my husband does something stupid then I'm mad at him the next day

I used to talk in my sleep too, and now Kate does it. Actually, my sister and I would totally have conversations. And both be sound asleep. True story.

Maybe you're pregnant. I can't tell you how many times I've woken myself up from screaming from a nightmare while pregnant. Too many.

Or maybe it is low blood sugar. Pregnancy and low blood sugar are pretty much the same, right?

:-p

my husband not only talks in his sleep, sometimes he also sleep walks. there has been more than one occasion when i'll find him roaming around the living room completely asleep. we had to make a "password" because he'll try to talk to me while he's sleeping and he'll even say he's awake. : )

I laughed out loud at Ashley's hula girl dream!

On an unrelated note, I just saw a Volkswagen commercial that references Star Wars and thought of you. I hope it makes you smile if you haven't already seen it!

I really want to sit down to lunch with Ashley one of these days. She's a fascinating conversationalist.

Last night I dreamt Jim Carrey was hitting on me, but I stood firm because I'm a married woman.

I vote hungry...that settles it...keep a bag of cookies near the bed and no one gets punched! Although boxing could burn off the calories from the cookies and it would be like you're breaking even! Hmmm...
