Sleeping In Isn't What It's Cracked Up To Be

I was trying to sleep in (i.e., past 6 AM) this morning and I was having a nightmare that I was somewhere with Rachel and she kept talking and talking, saying the same things over and over, and I was trying to tell her to stop but I couldn't speak above a teeny-tiny whisper no matter how hard I tried, and Rachel was yammering away, so I started slapping her on the face to get her attention (it wasn't real - calm down) and it didn't work and this dream went on and on and on until I was feeling even more irritated than I feel in real life when Rachel yammers incessantly (because in real life I can yell at her to cut it out) until I finally woke up (whew!); but the voice from my dream was still going, right next to me.

This completely freaked me out until I managed to open my eyes and realize that Susie was lying beside me and singing (happily) into my ear. And, no, I didn't slap her. But I do think I am owed an hour's nap sometime today.


  1. This sounds eerily familiar...

  2. Ha! I hate it when something from reality interferes with sleep - like when my husband steals the comforter and then I dream I'm cold for the next two hours or so.

  3. I think it's so weird how real life intrudes on our dreams works itself right into the storyline. See what happens when you try to sleep past 6 AM?

  4. Dude, my life right now includes a nine-year-old who will NOT STOP WHISTLING. Honestly, it's incessant. To the point that I am concerned for everyone's safety if it doesn't stop soon. I so get that nightmare.

  5. AARRGG I hate when that happens. It seems to happen ANYTIME I try to sleep - wether its sleep in, or take a nap.

  6. Isn't it funny that we try so hard for them to start talking... and then they never, ever, ever shut up?! My son talks incessantly; my daughter has taken up humming. It's a nightmare, alright.

  7. What on Earth was she doing singing at 6 am?! Noone should be that happy that early!
