I had a weird dream last night. I'm wondering what it means. Anyone have any knowledge or education in how to properly interpret dreams? Here's how it goes... what I remember about it.
There was a guy... someone I started dating. It is someone I know in real life, but I don't remember who. I just remember that I like him a lot and was excited to be with him. It is possible that it is a guy I had one date with recently and it didn't work out. I thought it did, but apparently he didn't. He sent me a nasty email the next day. I was very hurt.
Anyway, in this dream, we were going back to my place one day. We were driving a mini-van. Someone else was with us. I'm not sure who, but I think it was my friend from church... who is like a best friend for me now. She's 14 years older than me. She was my mentor in the mentoring program. Anyway, in the dream, when we got back to my place, the apartment wasn't in the the building I'm living in now. It was the house I used to own back when I was married... except I didn't own it in the dream. I was renting the downstairs apartment (which is where my ex-husband lived when I met him, before we purchased that same house together.) That's what I remember about my dream.
And, a side note... today (July 24th), would have been our 18th wedding anniversary if we were still together. I'm not dealing with it well. Which is 2 days after my birthday which I am also not dealing with very well. There are a few other things that piled up on me this week besides, but that's another story.
Back to the dream. We all got out of the van and went into the garage so we could go into the apartment (the separate entrance to the apartment is inside the garage of that house). Anyway, when I opened the garage door to start in, my ex-roommate was there. The one I talked about in my SP blog a while back called "Stockholm Syndrome". I was sooooooooooo happy to see him, and he was happy to see me. It was like we were in love or something, and I was happy that this other guy was going to see that. I suddenly wanted this new guy to see me in love with someone else because then maybe he would go away, or maybe he would suddenly want me and I could tell him "you're too late".
Oh, a few other small points... I think the mini-van was burgundy... not sure where that came from. Either that it was light-blue (same color as the one my dad used to own). Finally, this happened on a bright sunny day.... which considering the super hot temps we're having lately, is not so far fetched in a dream... besides, I loveeeee summer! :-)
