    I have been having the weirdest reams lately. the last one was the phone company was bringing back dial phones. Everyone was flocking to get theirs. BUT they weren't real phones. They were these little sock monkey things with elephant noses that you hooked up to a wire. Then the dial part was paper and broke right away. I told you it was weird! another involved me and dh and youngest dd in some weird mall elevators.....anyone that knows me would just fall over in shock to learn I was in a mall! and I've been oversleeping to have these dreams. Makes me almost afraid to sleep!

    That is strange, but the sock monkey telephone sounds pretty funny!

    Dreams are actually a good thing. It is a way we can safely let out something that is on our mind. Don't be afraid to sleep. Embrace the dream and look at what it is trying to tell you.

    Just kidding. Sometimes we all seem to have some wierd dreams. Have you had a change in medications lately? If so you might want to contact your doctor.

    That is funny.....I go through spells where I have very strange dreams in the morning. I have even gotten up to go to the bathroom, went back to bed and back into the same dream!! A few times I have gotten up and told my DH the convoluted dream. Sometimes it sticks in my mind for hours before it fades away! :lol:

    I think it is something in the air because my dreams lately have been bizarre! Maybe Al Gore was right about global warming!

    Not on any medications except some herbs and no change in them. And if I had something to smoke I might be tempted to try it to see if it helped lol!
    As far as I can tell these are happening in the mornings just after dh leaves. He leaves about 5:30 and normally I'm up by 7. the last few days though its been 8 or even 9 before I wake up and they are very vivid detailed dreams. The funny thing is we haven't had a land line in over a year. I haven't eaten anything before bed either......

    Barometric pressure can stimulate deep sleep which leads to dreams and look at the crazy weather we're having. Could clear up when pressure normalizes, if it does.

    Dial-Up phones would be a NIGHTMARE!!!!! Sorry you are having these dreams.

    Years ago I dreamed my yard was covered in cows and I could not get out of my house. I live in the city so this would be very weird. LOL makes for some good laughs.

    If I get awakened then go back to sleep I have crazy dreams too. Perhaps that's what you're doing. The mind gets activated before the body's ready to kick in so when you go back to sleep the mind does a "cruising through the crazies" for a while.

    I have had vivid dreams my whole life. I agree with Murphy that they are good for us.
    Just last week one of my sons told me he writes his down every morning as soon as he wakes up b/c he's looking for a pattern that may come to light.
    Some of mine make sense and some don't. My hubby never remembers his but I always do, at least I remember a lot of them. I wish there were experts who could help me with them.
    I find dreams fascinating.

    From a small child living on a hard scrabble farm, I've had the same dream, of living in a big Victorian house. Never saw the outside of it, but I know the inside of it very well. A few weeks after my Number two sister died, I dreamed that she had moved into MY house and took me to show off the new drapes for the dining room she'd made. After that I didn't grieve for her so much, I knew that after her long battle with leukemia she was finally at rest. Never dreamed about her again, but what is odd, the dining room drapes she told me she made stayed the same.

    I agree...but I sure hope that telephones don't come back as sock monkeys. LOL.

    I used to have really strange dreams all the time. I don't remember them anymore....maybe one or two a year. I don't think I sleep right, I always have a hard time waking up and can sleep through an alarm clock going off right next to my head. I'd rather have your dreams!!!!! :lol:

    Mall
    To dream that you are at the mall, represents your attempts in making a favorable impression on someone. You are trying to establish your identity and sense of self. The mall is also symbolic of materialism and the need to keep up with the trends, fads, and/or the latest technology.

    Telephone - problem communicating or avoiding someone?

    Usually I just dream about silly stuff, but I've had some doozies lately!

    For example, couple of days ago I dreamed that I was with a group of people ... adult students, perhaps. We were taking some kind of test, but it wasn't an ordinary test. It was more like an I.Q. test. A handful of people passed, including me (somehow! LOL!). But the test wasn't what it appeared to be. We were being tested to see if we had unusual abilities (?), and those who passed were soon to be "guinea pigs" of some kind of terrible scientific experiments! :shock:

    I, and a few of the others, managed to escape, and we were running, with gun-carrying guards right on our heels. I managed to elude them for a few minutes, and then I saw my mother's husband (whom I don't care for, even in real life) waiting with a car. Yes!!! But instead of helping me escape, he betrayed me, and helped them catch me again! :evil:

    Somehow I once again managed to escape, and was running as fast as I could ...

    ... and that's when I woke up, adrenaline-hyped and a little freaked out! :lol:

    If I do have some kind of unusual abilities, I sure would like to know about it! ROFL!

    well I know who I am....and I like her! I'm not trendy. I couldn't begin to tell you what is in style.....I can tell you what's comfortable though. It could be technology.....dh and I were talking about things earlier and one of my dreams has always been to live in Montana....where its wild and rugged. He said it wouldn't matter...there were satelites that could focus in on anyone, anywhere. That's the night I dreamed about the mall. The phone one......my mother and I have been estranged for years. I wish it could be different but have accepted that it probably never will be. I've also had an ex boyfriend almost stalking me.....from 25 years ago!

    Too funny!! I had a weird dream last week too. My neighbor across the street is a widower; his wife & I sewed together, she got me into quilting. Anyway, he & I go out to dinner together occasionally. I get his mail when he goes hunting, he snowblows my driveway. Anyhow....back to the dream....I dreamt that he ane I got married and couldn't agree on which house to move into and how to tell our kids we were married. When I woke up I couldn't decide if it was a dream or a nightmare :roll: :lol: :oops:

    Your dream made me cry,I'm sure it made you feel good to think she is in the house you love and you don't have to worry about her any more.
