Dreams of Doom

So last night I was exhausted. I had a long day at work (in a good way), and then had a great dinner with Jeremy, my boss Tom, and his wife Kacy. After dinner Jeremy and I went back to our hotel and I went straight to bed. And then this happened.

Dream 1: I am playing Zelda: Twilight Princess and am trying to buy potion from Trill (the bird) before the Monkey Temple. I ended up accidentally stealing it (you know what I mean if you've played the game) and he came after me squawking.

Dream 2: I accidentally dropped and broke almost all the glass stuff in my home

Dream 3: I had a lucid dream within-a-dream in which I had a premonition that our neighborhood and surrounding areas were sporadically burning. We and others were racing to get to our homes and get our pets, valuables, etc. Then we raced to the store to take water and things and we had to fight zombies to get it. Of course. But then my mind created Daryl and several others from The Walking Dead and they helped us. Then I had another premonition that just as things looked hopeless, the wind would die down and the flames would go out, and my mind made that happen too. So then we just had to deal with zombies. No big.

Dream 4: Involved Christmas, Muppets, fighting with my sister over some random thing, That's all I can piece together. Strange.

Dream 5: Yesterday on Twitter I mentioned the Max Rebo Band from Star Wars. Don't know who I'm talking about? These guys:

Anyway I dreamed that after I posted the comment, I was instantly trolled by other tweeters who claimed that the band was never called that. That only fake geeks thought that. That the Max Rebo Band was actually a cave in Jabba's palace and the band had no name and losers thought that the band was called Max Rebo Band. I remember waking up at this point and trying to check my phone to look on Twitter and delete the comment but I was still too deep in my dream to do anything about it.

I'll add more if I remember more. Anyway, I needed to share this before I forgot. Where's my kitty? I need to cuddle.

  1. Wow and I thought I was the only one who had lucid dreams. I have them every night. I take an anti-depressant and it wears off in the wee hours of the morning when REM sleep kicks in. Leads to some rather intense dreams.

Cloak Girl

So back in college there was a girl who wore a forest green cape every day. I don't remember her name, though I roomed across the hall from her one year. She was obviously very into fantasy. She loves Lord of the Rings and had a whole fantasy village set up outside her room window.

She was a little "weird" to most people and was often made fun of. I remember just thinking she was a little different. I mean, I liked LOTR too, but I didn't wear a cape. No one else did.

She was a nice girl though. I know she must have known she was the object of a lot of jokes. Despite what your mockers think, you're never oblivious to that.

Well, today I made a green cloak. I am now cape girl. I guess some people might mock me. Honestly I don't care. Not at this point. I have learned to sew and can make a cloak. In fact I did so in just a few hours today. So I'm pretty proud of myself.

The character I'm cosplaying is Kvothe from The Name of the Wind. If you like fantasy…

Mom of the Year

Before I write this blog post, I want to say a few things. By its nature, this post is exclusive. It is about one thing and not about other things. But it is not meant to say that one thing is better than another. It's just not about all those things.

All of us who are parents are doing the best we can. I respect and admire those who choose to stay home with their little ones full-time. You're doing hard work, and it's a great thing. 

I see a lot of posts from parents who stay home with their children talking about how they love it and it's the best thing. They can't imagine not doing that. Wonderful! I see posts that get shared that extol staying home full-time with your children. That's great, too. 

But this post is specifically for the mom who works full-time outside the home. I don't see much for those of us who do that, so this is for us. I know "working mom" is a bit of a misnomer since all moms are working moms, but for clarity's sake, tha…

My Journey of Health, Perspective, and Trust

This is less a post about failing, although I certainly had those moments. It's just something I'm sharing. I hope it helps someone in some way.
It started back in May of 2011. I just randomly started having breathing trouble and was coughing a lot. Of course working at WebMD, I began a long process of self-diagnosing. Something I try to never do now. My symptoms seemed to point to asthma, although I imagined a dozen worse scenarios. The doctor thought it could be severe allergies so he gave me some medications to try. It didn't help. 
I went back and he gave me an asthma test. It did not indicate asthma but did show some improvement in breathing with a breathing treatment, so I then got inhaled steroids and a rescue inhaler. That did seem to help a bit... but when I say a bit, I really mean that. I spent the whole summer barely able to breathe and unable to be outside for more than a couple of minutes. I couldn't work out. I could barely walk around for any length of…
