Okay, Okay, I'm *Awake*!

I woke up this morning around 4:30am and could not get back to sleep. I was up until around 6:30, then went back to bed and finally fell asleep after some struggle.

It's now a little over two hours later, but I could have sworn I've been awakened multiple times since then:

One dream about my ex-husband, who had found my LJ, read it, and was (understandably) more than a little pissed at me. He had made a glossy brochure which illustrated the many ways our astrological dynamics were utterly out of synch and left it for me to read, but I hadn't seen it, and/or hadn't realized what it was and so had neither read it nor acknowledged it, which had made him even madder.

At least two dreams about Wolfling waking up, then waking me up, and both of us being so out of synch with our needs that we both ended up upset to the point of tears.

One dream in which the Spanish-speaking painting crew (who have been working around the complex for about a month in real-life) not only woke me by painting outside my bedroom, but then came into my bedroom and then started to stroll through the apartment intent on working on other projects, oblivious to my protests. I finally got one to speak directly to me, but the conversation was very difficult because he didn't speak much English, nor I much Spanish. (Having a bilingual dream was weird!) He finally got the message that no one had told me they would be working inside, we'd had no way to prepare, and that they had to leave immediately.

What finally, truly woke me up was the clatter of an actual ladder against the wall outside my bedroom and cheerful voices conversing in Spanish.

The fact three of these dreams follow very closely on two of the three LJ entries I made earlier today almost makes me wish I hadn't tried to write anything. At the very least my subconscious might have dredged up some pleasantly sexy dream to go with the "Writer's Block: Sexy" entry!


I seem to still have the headache I did when I first woke up, and I am *not* rested. The painters are continuing to bang ladders and supplies against the walls.

The school clothes shopping expedition scheduled for this morning is going to be pushed back a couple of hours. . .

ETA: Oh, and how could I forget the other dream -- the one about someone trying to mug me in a parking garage! I fought back, but utterly ineffectually. I blame this dream on reading a friend's LJ entry about stalkers around the same time I made my early morning posts today. (I do not blame my friend for writing about stalkers, I hasten to add.)

I totally understand. I hate having bunches of dreams back to back that are disturbing. I never feel rested when I wake up after those either!
