Dip in a Dark Pool

Dreams 08.11.12
Last night I slept on the couch but had a really hard time sleeping. I twisted and turned for many hours. By the time I drifted off to sleep it was about 4 something in the morning. I dreamt that I was in a very small pool/large hot tub with my sister. We were splashing each other making jokes. The pool room was dark with a faint diffuse light that seemed to only touch the pool area. I couldn’t really tell if the surrounding walls were really dark grey just a few feet back from the pool’s edge or it was actually just darkness.

My sister was at the end of the pool and I was in the middle looking at her. On the left side of the pool out of the corner of my eye, I saw a skinny brown dude just wading. He looked kind of nerdy and had his glasses on. He was fumbling to take it off and set it aside. I leaned back, floated on my back for a bit then let myself sink and be submerged in the water. I think I stayed under a little longer, seeing if I would drown. I stared up at the ceiling through the water, vision completely blurred. That’s when I told myself “You are dreaming. You are dreaming. You are dreaming. Control yourself.” But I didn’t really have a goal of what should happen.

Then I heard footsteps, someone coming into the kitchen (right beside the living room where I was sleeping). I don’t think my eyes were actually open. I thought and was afraid that husband had come downstairs. I did not want him to see me and be annoyed that I was sleeping soundly but I just didn’t want to deal with him. Then I thought I saw my dog (with my eyes still closed) climb up the couch to the blankets by my knees. But I didn’t feel any weight. Then I think I woke up and wasn’t sure if anyone or the dog actually came downstairs or not. I think at some point I checked the time. After a little while, I did eventually drift back to sleep.

So for a few seconds at least, I knew I was dreaming so guess that counts as being lucid.


Mango Make-Outs, Communal Showers the Unwilling Washing Machine

Dreams 08.06.12
Semi asleep dreaming of putting large cut pieces of mangoes in my mouth, letting df suck on the other end until meeting in the middle and then sucking each other’s face, licking the juices off each other. Yums to mangoes.

Another bit. Stuffing too much laundry into an upright washing machine in the middle of the basement.

I go upstairs into an all wet shower room to join husband and our neighbour tc. I don’t think I was expecting tc to be in there but they were both hanging out talking in there as if it was a steam room. The room was all tile. So the door opened up to a 4 foot channel. Each side had a step about six inches high. Then each side had a tub built from tile. An extending showerhead came out of the wall opposite of the door. It was awkward because I walked in all naked with a tiny square washcloth but tc is usually so nice, I felt rude to leave. the two of them were on opposite ends of the room in the tub so I sat on the tub step on husband’s side. I sat there hunched over, barely covering my boobs with the washcloth. Then husband started running water and gestured, asking if I wanted to be wet, I nodded.

He moved the shower head over me and poured wet, very very warm water down my front, my face and hair. It felt great. I kind of melted from the tub ledge down to the step and somehow managed to submerge myself lying back, face covered, in the 6 inches of water at the lowest level. I was also trying to hide from tc, wondering if his wife would be really mad.

Then I am back in the basement checking on the laundry. The basement is a mess as usual. The washing machine was in the middle, raised on about 5 sheets of thick plywood. The only light in the basement shone down on it. Weird thing was, the lid was open and I saw a lot of laundry spread out on the floor around it. I was like wtf? So I went closer to have a look and then I could see the machine just spitting out pieces of laundry. When I got right up to it, it stopped. So I tried to stuff everything back in, this time not as over stuffed as before.
