Just woke up from a nightmare. It was very distorted and jumbled. it was one of those powerless dreams, but I wasn't really powerless b/c I was doing something...
We were in our trailer from Eau Claire (over 10 yrs ago) I was in the living room on my laptop *which I've only had since '07* and my monitor was broken in half, but still attached and if I angled it right it worked. but I would get...not shocks, but some kind of sensation when I touched the screen. the phone ringed, and Joe answered it. I was fussing w/ the screen and he told me it was for me. I grabbed the phone and started telling who ever it was that I would have to call back before Bub or Z started messing with my PC, then I realized there was no one on the phone, and my sister was standing right behind me. I started crying, I was so happy to see her, I almost tackled her, but I made myself fall instead b/c I didn't want to chance hurting her w/ everything else going on. so I fell w/ my head near my computer, and I smelled smoke. and I saw smoke, and the room was suddenly dark and empty. I couldn't figure out where the smoke was coming from, except my PC, but it was off, and no sign of fire. i couldn't understand why the smoke alarm wasn't going off. I got up and tried to turn the light on for the ceiling fan, but it wouldn't turn on even when I kept pulling the string. In my dream I remembered that I already paid the electric bill this month so the power couldn't be turned off. I started calling for Joe to come and help figure out the light and where the smoke was coming from. I *you guessed it* had no voice. I was trying to yell and couldn't and started panicking.
then I woke up.
I have never had a fire dream. shadowy man in the bushes, yes. Flooding dreams, yes. being chased, yes. weird science fiction type loss of air, yes. Fire, no.
I think there is something here that is significant. I'm not sure what. I have a feeling it will become apparent in a few months if I look back at it from a hindsight kind of view.
well. my heart rate has returned to normal now. I'm going to get a drink and try to go back to sleep.
