I had THAT dream

The one where I was trying to get to class to teach. I was riding with someone whose car broke down, so I got out and walked in the rain, but I was lost. Finally I did get back to where I was staying and met up with Mark. I was running late, but on my way out the door NanC Meinhardt stopped by to chat. And then because in dreams things have no explanation, I was skyping with Dallas Lovett. It's 1:45 and the class started at 1:30........ and then I woke up.

I have the 'I messed up my teaching engagement' dream a lot. Sometimes I show up without directions, or I show up but I forget to teach or....well you get the picture. For the record, I have never actually been late, or forgotten the directions, although I did once forget all three samples of the piece I was teaching. That is when the Dundas girls rescued me and made me a sample.

It must be that I'm feeling more behind at the moment. Kit making for B&B is in good shape, and I have a new design almost ready to be shown, but a couple of more designs would be helpful and I'm thinking that contributes to the behindedness (funny that spell check doesn't like this word, it's such a good one.)

I'm grateful that I stopped having the escalator (staircase, road, etc.) is too steep and I fall over backwards dream. That one is apparently about thinking you won't reach your goals in life, so it's nice that particular recurring dream has left me.

Any recurring dreams for you?

Funny! Not fun to feel though...

I still sometimes have the dream where I think I'm ready to graduate, but I find out that I missed one class in humanities or science or PE... Since I went to school at night to get my degree it took a long time and it seemed every quarter I was making sure I knew what I had left to take.

It shows how much you care that you're having THAT dream. You know you'll make it. Funny that you forgot ALL your class samples - panic!

Hi Marcia, nothing about dreams, but are you ready to post the directions yet to the earrings you demo'd on Voyage a couple of weeks ago? You said "in a couple of weeks" and I'm taking you literally! I got Beaded Opulence in the mail the other day and the earrings in it don't look quite as nice as those you had on the ship. Didn't they have 2mm round Swarovskis in them, as well as 3mm bicones? They seemed fancier, and that's what I want. I wish I had taken a picture of them.....

I always have a dream that we've sold our house (that I love). In my dream I slowly become aware that we've sold it and get really sad, especially when I realize that I didn't take any of my grandma's garden plants with me.

Guess maybe I should collect some seeds and keep it with the important documentation just in case it really happens? (-:

Had these two for years, typical anxiety dreams: 1) I'm on the beach running away from a tidal wave that never hits and 2) my teeth crumbling and falling out of my mouth.

I hate these, I also have the high school dreams where I can't find my locker, just wandering the halls. weird!

Yes! It's the bead-teaching equivalent of the dream one has of showing up to school naked.

The most recent one I had involved not having instruction sheets in hand, and every time I looked up I saw more and more students in the room...
