Dream a little dream with me

I had a very odd dream last night. I have odd dreams quite often, but last night was a little odder than most.

It started out with one of my guy friends (GF) telling me that he was leaving. I was very upset (but kept up a happy face) and invited him over for supper. I left the place I was at (a theater of some sort) and rode a bicycle home. (Ha! As if.) I was riding to our old house in town and I almost skidded on some loose gravel. The house looked exactly like our old house from the outside except it didn't have the porch (It looks better that way.) When I pulled up in the driveway, GF was pulling up on his bicycle too. Weird thing was, he was wearing a suit. (The first time I ever saw him in real life, he was wearing a suit. I haven't seen him in one since.) I could tell that he had been crying and I reached up to wipe a tear and he pulled back. I asked what was wrong, but I don't remember what he said. I stepped up on the first step going into the house, turned around and hugged him and told him that it wasnt' going to be the same around here without him. We went into the house and I could hear a dog yapping. I looked out the window and my mom's old dog, Squeaky, was out back. (Squeaky has been dead for years.) I walked down the hall to the sliding door to take some food out to her and the door was partway open. The screen was shut. I was wondering why the door was open when no one was home and then I noticed my Granny was sleeping in the bedroom. (Granny has also been gone for years.) She woke up and started talking to me and I was so glad to be talking to her. I told her GF had came over to have supper with us. I fed Squeaky some dog food and then went down to the kitchen to make goulash. One of my female co-workers and her sister were already in the kitchen and we started putting together some goulash and laughing and having a grand old time.

Then I woke up.

I was enjoying the dream cause it ended happy, but then I started thinking about stuff. GF leaving. Crying. Wearing suit. Dead dog. Dead Granny. It started creeping me out. Is my GF gonna die? Was he wearing the suit for his funeral? Were the dead people there to take him? Why was I making goulash? I've never made goulash in my life. Why my old house? GF has never even been to my old house. How would he know how to get there? Why the co-worker? And her sister? I've only seen her sister a couple of times in my life.


A little help here...

Dear Lord,

Please, if it be Your will, don't let the Weaver family win The Amazing Race. If one or all of the family gets utterly and totally humiliated and maybe even a bone broken, that would be great.

Tooth Fairy

For those of you wanting to know...

The Tooth Fairy left five quarters (The boy is a quarter maniac. Before he went to bed that night he said, "I hope I get quarters cause gum costs a quarter.")

The TF also took the tooth from the envelope and put it in a My First Tooth display and left it under the pillow. Wasn't that nice of the TF?

Call it what it is.

Tiny little peeve of mine. It is called Thanksgiving not Turkey Day. Why do you insist on calling it Turkey Day? Stop it.

So what are you doing on Thanksgiving?

I'm making my famous Butterfinger Cookies and broccoli-cheese casserole and driving about an hour to my cousin's house for lunch. Then I'm going to load up and rush back to the house to make another broccoli-cheese casserole to take to a friend's house for supper.

My favorite Thanksgiving foods? Stuffing with cranberry sauce. I could just eat a plate of it. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows and pecans. Warm rolls. Pie. mmmmmmmm

So a shout out to my family in Texas. One to my interweb buddy Garrison. And one big one to all of my Peeps!

By the way, it is puhcahnz not pee-cans. A pee-can is what you use when you are out camping and you don't want to get up in the middle of the night and walk into the woods to pee.

Self Portrait Friday

Here's me. About a year ago when I made (for the first and LAST time) Aunt Bill's Brown Candy. Notice the barstools. You have to stir this stuff for freakin' ever so I sat my butt down and took a load off.

help me

Quick. I've been invited to a cookie exchange and need a new and exciting cookie to take.
Flour based.
No no-bakes.
No chocolate chip.
Any suggestions?

And don't say my Butterfinger cookies. They are my backup.

The Call

The boy actually likes a song I like! Woot!

Let The Day Begin

Here's to the babies in a brand new world
Here's to the beauty of the stars
Here's to the travellers on the open road
Here's to the dreamers in the bars

Here's to the teachers in the crowded rooms
Here's to the workers in the fields
Here's to the preachers of the sacred words
Here's to the drivers at the wheel

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin

Here's to the winners of the human race
Here's to the losers in the game
Here's to the soldiers of the bitter war
Here's to the wall that bears their names

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

Here's to the doctors and their healing work
Here's to the loved ones in their care
Here's to the strangers on the streets tonight
Here's to the lonely everywhere

Here's to the wisdom from the mouths of babes
Here's to the lions in the cage
Here's to the struggles of the silent war
Here's to the closing of the age.

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

C'mon kid, get up, Mom needs more chocolate

How to tell it is time to stop Trick-or-Treating...

Chris plopped himself down face-first into someone's lawn last night and exclaimed, "Mooooooom, I just want to go to bed!"
