What a long strange dream...

and you were there, and you were there, and you were there... I felt like Dorothy when I woke up this morning. (Note: the phrase when I woke up refers to the period of time between my frequent trips in the middle of the night to the loo - 3 last night - 1am, 4am, and 6am - the last resulting in a bit of a tantrum as I found myself lying on my back -GASP! - my preggo "comfort and to-keep-you-on-your-side " pillow tucked neatly between the legs of the softly snoring giant beside me.)

I don't often remember my dreams, but throughout this pregnancy I have had some whoppers. They leave me scratching my head in the morning wondering about the real ingredients in that pre natal vitamin I take after dinner. (I checked they don't say "Eat Me" on them, so I shouldn't be slipping down any rabbit holes any time soon - not that I could FIT anyway at this point) So last night what I was left with in the morning were some brief little snippets - which made no logical sense at all. So here are just a couple of my little dream sequences...

Dream sequence 1 -
- My grandfather seated at a table playing cards (of course), his hair parted perfectly in the way he always wore it, glasses framing his smiling eyes, attempting to work a cellphone my uncle had just given him. We laughed and he laughed that big hearty laugh of his...
Interpretation -
- The phone - reaching out to us? us reaching out to him? me wanting to reach out to him or wishing I could? I don't know - it was good to see him though...

Dream sequence 2 -
- My father and I standing in my aunt's backyard - me begging him for one more horsey ride - him finally giving in and galloping around the yard like a pony with me shrieking the whole time. Cut to our backyard years prior, being thrown straight up into the air and caught flawlessly over and over, absolutely terrified each time, but reassured with each catch...
Interpretation -
These were more like memories - I did beg him relentlessly when I was about 11 for that last pony ride because I realized I was growing up and I couldn't have them anymore and what did that mean?? - he really did give in and take that last gallop... Just like he really used to stand for long periods of time in the backyard, right off the patio near where the big tree used to be, tossing us up into the air over and over - he even tossed the neighbors! This must have to do with me realizing that though I was long ago too old for tossing and pony rides, I am reaching another milestone in my relationship with my pops... and soon he might gallop with Cash and toss a shrieking little one up over his head in that same backyard...

Car seat inspection tonight!
Doctor appointment and Ultrasound Thursday!
