House Hunting

Why is it that I've been out of High School for 40 years and I still dream I'm trying to find my junior year's Algebra class? Or I can't remember which one is next? It's not like I haven't moved on, conquered many situations that are much more complicated than what I faced in High School. Out of the blue, without any warning I'm transported back to those teen years where I didn't feel confident. Even when I'm dreaming it, I think "I'm dreaming this and I'm gonna wake up soon."

Sometimes my dreams are easily "diagnosed." A real good indication that I'm watching too many House Hunters on HGTV, I go house hunting in my dreams! I will be looking at huge houses with so many rooms I get lost, or apartments and I'm thinking, "Where are we going to put all our STUFF???" 

When I was younger, I had a re-occurring dream about flying high above the treetops. I could look down and see the tops of houses and I was amazed I could fly just like a bird! That type of dream denotes overcoming problems, coping well. Isn't that funny I dreamed that as a young adult and now that I have lots of experience under my belt I dream about high school and getting to first period class?


  1. Wish I could help you out, Joycee...I'm so pooped at night, I rarely dream!...:)JP

  2. Oh, yes, I had those flying dreams too back in my youth. Now I seem to dream about being in a house that is in total disarray, and I can't seem to get it straightened out.

  3. Life sure enough plays tricks on us...just when we think we have it all figured out...a curve shows up.

  4. I'm so with you on this one! Sometimes I dream that I suddenly realize I've been SKIPPING a high school class since the beginning of the semester. Sometimes I dream I get to school, take off my coat, and am standing there in my slip - - - or less.
    Sometimes I dream I'm trying to get to school on time - - - running for all I'm worth - - - but not moving a centimeter!

    I can't explain why we still dream these things - - - but I do it too!!!

  5. I had those flying dreams too and I'm still trying to remember the combination to my locker in High school!! ;-)

  6. Dreaming of algebra is a nightmare I dont't want to have. Looking back at High School I would do things so differently. My mom always says "you can't put an old head on young shoulders."
