Hi everyone! Did you have a nice weekend? I know that we’re already into Wednesday, but I also know I haven’t posted since Saturday.
I woke up on Saturday after having the longest dream I’ve had so far in my life. I woke up two times during that dream and then fell back to sleep still able to continue. The majority of my dream was spent running, and I so wished I could count that as part of my walkathon training!
I dreamed that I was back in the house I lived in as a kid and I was being chased by the queen alien from the movie “Aliens”. I was hiding on the back porch and could somehow see the alien in the livingroom. She thought I was upstairs and started to head that way. Once she realized where I was really hiding, she caught up to me before I could go out the back door. I tried to close the door on her, but she reached around and grabbed my arm. That’s when I woke up flailing my right arm, still feeling like I had to break free from her grip.
I was able to fall back to sleep, but because I was still thinking about the dream, it continued and backtracked to when the alien found out where I was really hiding. This time, though, I was able to break free and run out the back door and across the lawn to the fence. I climbed up super fast, jumped down Selene style and then ran as fast as I could across the park, leaving the alien far behind.
Eventually I wound up at the mall with some of my coworkers. One of my friends had me trash someone’s apartment, but I don’t know why. I don’t know why it was so easy for me to follow that order, either. Anyway, then she told me that I trashed the wrong person’s place, and the woman was looking for me at the same mall, but didn’t know what I looked like. So I calmly walked out of the mall but was stopped by two detectives. I ran from them, too, and started frantically looking for my car and panicking. I knew I couldn’t go “home” because that’s where the alien was hanging out. I was jumping over benches, sliding across puddles and mud, etc. I hid behind a fence but the detectives found me, so I took off again. That’s when I woke up for good.
So it was a very long dream. There were more details in there, but didn’t want this post to be any longer than it is already. I did write down the entire dream on a notepad and it took up two and a half pages.
