    Sometimes I don’t remember anything. While I was on vacation I had a dream as a lady from a very long time ago. I dreamt about her death. It was very surreal and it plagued me for nights. It still haunts me. Wish I knew what it was all about. Most nights away from my home where filled with vivid dreams, most of which I can no longer recall. When at home I don’t remember a lot of what I dream. Is that odd that I remember my dreams when away, but not when at home?

      Maybe you’re supposed to write a story about that dream? It would haunt me, too.

      That is kind of strange that you don’t remember dreams at home. But you keep a crazy schedule at home. Even though vacations seem like more work than they’re worth sometimes, you are probably more relaxed and rested, and that’s why you remember more. When you’re home, and your sleep is disrupted all the time (or too little of it), you don’t spend as much time in REM sleep, which is when we do the bulk of our dreaming. At least as far as I understand it.

      The only time I dream more is when I’m just dozing…and those will the the weirdest…or scariest…of them all. But I think that’s because so much of what’s going on in the house affects them. πŸ™‚

    Yoopers…yeahhhh! I love learning new Urban Words. Squeee! Look at you go Kristy. πŸ™‚

    I love sleep because I love to dream. Most of the time I have crazy dreams like you and Tameri and I often wake up and remember them for the most part but if I try to tell hubby about it, within a few minutes the details start to fade away. Not sure why?! Try as I might, they slip away. And some of them are sooooo delicious…LOL!!! Heading there shortly and can’t wait! πŸ™‚

      You ought to check out the Yoopers videos on YouTube, Natalie. I love their Second Week of Deer Camp, and the Rusty Chevrolet songs. They’re a riot!

      You should try to keep a notebook beside your bed (or a voice recorder) and write down the ones you really liked (or speak them into the recorder). I’ve done that sometimes. Especially if I think I was supposed to learn something from the dream (like the solution to a problem that’s been bugging me). And sometimes they’re just too good to not write down. πŸ™‚

    I have bizarre, crazy dreams like you, Kristy. Some I remember, and others I wish I didn’t. I don’t like the dreams where you wake up not quite knowing if it was a dream or reality. Takes me a few minutes to get my head back together after those! Mostly I have good dreams where I can fly or do magic. Those are the best. When my kids were little and had a nightmare, I would tell them to ‘remember their magic’, that dreams were creations in their mind and they could do anything in them, including using magic to banish the bad guys. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I’ll try to dream a scene from whatever book I’m working on, that way I fall asleep with my characters and get some good plotting done at the same time. Win!

      Oh I like what you told your kids…and trying to dream abut your WIPs. I think I might dream about my books from time to time, because once in a great while I’ll wake up and a plot problem is solved.

      I hate the dreams I wish I didn’t remember. A number of times in the past couple of years I’ve had dreams that scared me so much I had to get up and turn the bathroom light on before I could go back to sleep. Talk about feeling like a little baby! But when stuff scares you that bad, you just do what you have to do, lol. πŸ™‚

    I tend to forget most of my dreams after I wake up. I love the dreams where I see my grandparents and can hear their voices.

      I tend to forget most of mine, too…except for the really weird, or the really interesting ones. Makes me wonder what the ones I don’t remember are about.

      I don’t think I’ve ever dreamed about my grandparents, but I have dreamed about my dad on a number of occasions. I love waking up remembering those ones. It’s almost like being with him again. πŸ™‚
