I think I might have done too much blog reading yesterday/last night. I say this because after I went to bed, I actually dreamed about blogging! I dreamed that I found myself on the Secret is in the Sauce site, and was happily reading someones blog, when I discovered that they had featured mine! I was so excited! I clicked on the link to open my page, but instead of finding the usual shenanigans, I discovered that someone had posted a video of a (totally made up in my sleeping head) event from the previous Christmas. (I wish I knew where my subconscious comes up with this stuff!)
On the video was my mother, my grandmother (who passed away in 2001!), my kids and a bunch of other random children. They appeared to be sitting by the fireplace, listening to a story, when suddenly something my grandmother was holding caught on fire. It appeared to be a long bunch of wheat, almost like a mini broom, and she started running around, waving it frantically in the air. (That in itself was hilarious to watch.) Right when it almost seemed she had put it out, it suddenly ignited the carpeting, which went up in flames. It was mayhem! The kids were running for their lives, and my little Gramma was trying to stomp out the fire. What did my mom do? Oddly, she just sat there and shook her head in disgust, telling us that that wouldn't work. I actually woke myself up laughing out loud, which really freaked my husband out. Sorry, honey!
It's probably not quite as funny to the rest of the world, but I was amused. I especially enjoyed waking up laughing -- that doesn't happen too often. And I couldn't stop right away, which was even more weird. I guess my body just needed a smile.
I wonder whose blog I'll dream about tonight?!
