I had a dream a few years back. When I woke up, the only thing that I could remember from the dream was a beautiful stained glass door that I came upon in my dream. I was amazed by how beautiful this door was. The glass was black, pink, grey, and clear. There were beveled pieces, circles, triangles. It was very unique.

I thought that the only reason the door stood out was because years before, I took an interest in stained glass, and made some small pieces.

Well. Last week, on Monday, the door from my dream made an appearance in my real life. I didn't notice it at first, but, later, I was floored when I saw it.

Here's what happened. I went to help my friend (the bad luck cloud friend) at his home. We met at the Home Depot, picked up some supplies, and I followed him to his home. When we arrived, we unloaded my car, and he, of course, had already entered his house, so the door was open when I approached it. We got right to work. I started the patch on the ceiling, and then while waiting for the patch to dry, I patched small holes in the walls and then we painted. Most of the work we did was in the rec room, which was in the basement.

We took a break, and went out for lunch. It was when we returned and were walking towards the house that I noticed the door. To be honest, it kind of freaked me out. I didn't say anything to my friend, and we went back to work. There is no question in my mind that this was the door in my dream.

I had to return the next day to finish the patch on the ceiling, and again, while we waited for the patch to dry, we continued to paint. At one point, my friend actually brought me over to the door and showed it to me. It was a special order door that was designed specifically for this friend. It was then that I told him that I had dreamt of his door.

I've known this friend for nearly five years, but we only ever said hello and had casual conversations. I had never been to his house, or even been anywhere near his neighbourhood, so there's no chance that I would have seen the door in passing.

So here's the thing that's been bugging me since I saw the door... what is the significance? Was the dream trying to show me something? I honestly don't think that it was a coincidence that I dreamt of this door. It's just weird.

  To see windows in your dream, signifies bright hopes, vast possibilities and insight. If the windows of a house is dark, then it indicates a loss in your perception or vitality.

To dream that you are looking out the window, signifies your outlook on life, your consciousness, point of view, awareness, and intuition. You may be reflecting on a decision and seeking guidance. Or you need to go out into the larger world and experience life. If you are looking in the window, then it indicates that you are doing some soul searching and looking within yourself.

To see shut windows in your dream, signifies desertion and abandonment.

To see shattered and broken windows, represents your distorted view and outlook on life. It is also indicates a state of vulnerability.

To see a tinted window in your dream, represents your need for privacy and your ways of getting it. You are keeping aspects of yourself hidden or that you want to remain ambiguous.

To dream that you are washing windows, suggests that you need some clarity in some matter. Something is not clear.

    That's really interesting. Your dream must have been very vivid as you remember it (the door) with such details. There must be some significance there. I'd say you have to ask yourself some questions about the door, the colours, your friend, your relationship to your friend etc etc. Or it's a sign that you are exactly where you're supposed to be. Or it's a sign that you have psychic abilities.OOOOO00000oooo!!

    I'm not good at analyzing other peoples dreams but I will say that I think it has significant meaning that perhaps you should look into. On another note, I must say that you look fabulous in your update picture! Keep blazing the weight away!

No official weigh-in for the beginning of week twenty-five...

Monday, April 27, 2009

Yup, it's true. I did not officially weigh myself on Saturday morning. I was busy being taxi driver to my kids on Saturday and Sunday morning. I like to weigh myself at the same time for the official weigh-ins, and since it was well past the 9:30 time that I usually weigh myself, I just didn't bother.

Friday's weigh-in was 249.2, which was the same as my last official weigh in.

I am confident that I will have a loss by next weigh-in, since I've gotten back on track with drinking all my water, and with logging all my food.

I've been pre-occupied with other stuff in my life (mostly helping the bad luck cloud friend) that took me away from my routine, but I have decided that I can't afford to let my commitment to myself (and SparkPeople) slide anymore.

I'm not far from my goal, I want to reach it well before my original date, in October, so that I can set a new goal for myself. Right now, I'm concentrating on reaching that 50 lb marker as soon as possible. That's only 13.7 lbs away. I can definitely do this!

I've signed up for the sweatsuit to swimsuit boot camp, and plan on sticking with it for the whole month of May -- that should show immediate results when combined with everything else.

Have a fantastic day!

    I'm so proud of you!!!! that's great that you recognize that your 'black cloud friend' takes time away from your committment to yourself. BALANCE is the key, I think. ROCK ON!! emoticon

Back to business...

Friday, April 24, 2009

I'm getting back to the serious business of doing this weight loss thing now.

I replaced my broken scale with a cheaper one that doesn't keep a record of each weigh-in, but it does keep a record of the last weigh in. I'll have to figure out if I'll be able to take pictures of the weigh ins to post on my blog.

I've been pigging out since Easter week. Or maybe it's just that it takes less food to fill me up now, so I feel stuffed if I eat more than I'm used to? I don't know.

The good thing is that I haven't gained any weight. I guess all the dancing and all the work that I've been doing around here (putting up the casing around the window and doorways, the painting, and the work at my friend's house) helped burn off the calories.

I've gradually started drinking all my water again. That was probably the toughest thing to do. I'm up to 8 glasses again, after having almost NO water in about three weeks -- and you can tell that I haven't been drinking the water... my complexion has gotten greasy.

Ah well.

I think I managed to get that "being gross" thing out of my system (for now, anyway).

I might even get around to re-writing that blog about everything happening for a reason. LOL.

Have a fantastic day today!

Life is GOOD!

Grossly curious...

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Alright. So I'm a curious person. I like to know stuff, no matter just how gross it might be.

I would like it noted that:

1. I do NOT chew my toenails! In my blog, I mention the smell, not the taste! (Admit it - SOME of you were probably wondering about this!)

2. I am not doing any kind of special 'sniff your toes' stretching exercises. Although, now that I have a lot less belly flab, it is much easier to reach my toes to sniff them (I said SNIFF not chew!)

3. I like Pionettia's idea for a "GROSS" team. LOL. Somehow, though, I don't think SparkPeople would allow such a group to exist for too long. (I can get pretty gross, but I am positive that there are people who can beat me!)

4. I do look at (but I don't do an in-depth study of) my bodily fluids, excretions, secretions and whatever comes out of me. I look because they can tell you a lot about your health -- for instance, snot should be clear -- if it's green, or any other colour there is likely an infection in there.

5. I WAS going to write something about belly button lint today, but decided not to, because you'd probably all expect it. Hmmmph. Way to spoil my fun. **Sigh*

Now, back to the business of being gross...

Can someone please explain to me why the accumulation of ear wax varies? Also, if you have enough ear wax, can you put wick in it and use it for light like a candle? I wonder if there's a market for ear wax candles. Just imagine, scented ear wax candles - (toe nail clipping scent anyone?), or maybe some special ear wax birthday candles!

: - )

Have a fantastic rest of the day!

  Tried ear candling? Excellent for wax removal,especially as cotton buds only push the wax in further and can cause damage to ear drums if used incorrectly.
You do think of some gross things! lol

    You are on a roll, a gross one that is. I did notice that my kids used to accumulate A LOT of ear wax when they were younger. AND, I remember reading many times that it should not be removed. I can't imagine not having cleaned it out. I'm sure there was enough to make a wax sculpture of some famous person.
Rollin rollin rollin.....

Still on the path of grossness...

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

I had this awesome blog all written out about how there's a reason for everything that happens. I clicked on "post blog entry" and it disappeared, and I got a blank blog page. *SIGH*

Since I just don't feel like typing all that out again, I'm going to leave you all with a new curious tidbit of grossness.... (because I can!)

Every day, I either have a bath or a shower -- this means that my feet get washed every single day, right? So why is it that no matter how much I scrub my feet, the stuff that I clean out from under my toenails stinks?

: - )

I'm done spreading my brand of sunshine for today!

Have a great rest of the day!

    What can I say? LOL. I can never prepare myself enough for the stuff you (and only you) come up with. I also had a laugh with MRSNOAHDRAKE's question. Who the heck would smell that stuff anyway...oh ya...YOU that's who!!! Anything on belly button stuff?
Hey, why don't you start up some kind of GROSS team. It could be a place to come to so one can be grossed out enough to lose their appetite. (I promise to join.)

    ROTFLMAO!!!!! Hmmmm, I think I have to side with MRSNOAHDRAKE--why is your nose close enough to smell it? is this a new flexibility exercise we're supposed to be doing? Toe-sniffing? lol emoticon

    Umm cuz while you may get it wet every day, you cant dry it, so it sits there wet and fermenting until you scrape it out? LOL What I want to know is why your nose is close enough to it to smell it?

    lol I think it's because oxygen can't reach it... that's my theory and I'm sticking to it!
