Analyze This One, Please

I had an all-encompassing dream on Wednesday night:
First, I traveled to Tennessee for an event and to be with my family.
My mother was alive in this dream.
Which meant I was going to have clothing issues.
Did I ever tell you that my mom didn't want me to wear jeans.
Ever.
So, the good daughter that I was spent three years at Vanderbilt hospital...
dressed to the nines like a good Southern Lady.
But I digress.
I arrive in Tennessee with a suitcase full of the wrong clothes,
and a western omelet that has escaped its container and soiled everything.

I manage to find something decent to wear in the hotel gift shop.
I know, but it is a dream, remember?
I go to my room to get ready for the dinner dance,
and my roommate(?) starts banging on the door.
It's Lindsay Lohan, and I have to help her hide from the paps.
~~~
With dreams like these, it's no wonder I'm so tired all the time.
Thoughts?

You're feeling unprepared for something.

If it's what to wear to Blog Fest, don't worry one bit.

The Lindsay Lohan part means you need to drink more wine before bedtime.

Debbie said...

It's cause ya'll are still eating that tainted Tilapi or however you spell it. Did you eat at Annie's before bed? LOL

Deb said...

It is a special night when you dream of a loved one, especially your mom. Regardless of the fact that of your wardrobe malfunction!
As for Lindsay, reading too much of the trashy magazines before bedtime!!! And the wine thing that Chesapeake Bay Woman said!

shara said...

You have let Western Life get all over you and you have a feeling Mom would not have approved... and letting Linsey sneak into your dreams, let alone room w/ you- you KNOW Mom wouldn't have liked that!

Drinking more wine...

Sally's World said...

i think this is about missing your mum and worrying about not being ready for somethign...perhaps your mum hated lateness and you worry about it...lindsay lohan..well???

asthmagirl said...

I think you're worried about making people happy. Lots of anxiety there.

I think you should set Lindsey on the right track. She'll listen to you!

Decadent Housewife said...

Hmmm. Omelet - that was in my dream last night too. But I'd eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich just before bed. Sounds like you had a full course meal.

Keetha said...

The omelett is what's getting me. I tend to agree with Chesapeake Bay Woman. Have a good weekend.

Shawn said...

Ya know, it wasn't your fault at all. Just tell your mom that it was the Airline's fault that they made you check your western omelet instead of putting it in your carry-on like you normally would have.

Sheesh, their rules just mess everything up!

big hair envy said...

I think it's your mom's way of telling you that it's inappropriate to leave clean clothes in the laundry basket. Or, she's just ticked that you and all of your friends wore jeans to The Red Cat!

Have some wine. You'll feel better;)

mom x 2 said...

I agree with CBW- you need to drink more wine before bed.... or maybe less wine ;)

Daryl said...

What CBW said ..

Vanderbilt HOSPITAL??????

Ellen said...

It's either from too much or too little Chardonnay. I'm not sure, but I would try both and see which works. Start with the assumption that it's too little and go from there.

Lindsey Lohan - that's the mothering instinct kicking into over drive - you need to have someone to mother once Bird and Augie go to college.

The clothing issue stems from a lack of shopping. This can be cured with a trip to a minimum of 5 stores.

By the way, Dr. Freud would have a field day with that one. So would Dr. Phil, Dr. Ruth and Dr. Demento.

Joanie said...

Uhhhh...how much wine did you have before bedtime????

Sassy said...

Has the date on the oil you've been drinking expired???? I love your dreams...much more fun than mine....

Suz Broughton said...

WHat's so weird about finding something to wear in the gift shop??? It's an essential on every trip! LOL!

Grandma J said...

That dreams sounds pretty normal to me.
Lindsay Lohan wasn't hiding from the papparazzi, she was running away so ED couldn't find her or you, or my blog.

You did have word verification on your hotel door didn't you?

Treasia said...

I think it meant that your choice of jeans as clothing was you wanting to stand up to your mother and let her know that that is the real you. when they became soiled it was your inner thoughts still having a hard time making yourself stand up to your mother and remain the ever loving silent daughter.

But then you lost me totally with Lindsey Lohan. LOL.

Starwoodgal said...

I think it means you need to go shoe shopping.

It could just be the hormones talking. They talk to me a lot in my sleep, when they let me sleep. I hate the hormones. They are trying to kill me with sleep deprivation or weird dreams. Secretly conspiring with my husband's ability to snore the roof off of the house.

I say, drink more wine and don't worry about it.

tj said...

...Wow, just what are you drinking before bedtime? lol...

...I read somewhere once that when you dream of a loved one that passed on that it is their spirit visiting you while you sleep. I'm not sayin' that I believe it but all I know is that when I dream about my mom I only hope that it is true... :o)

...Po' Lindsay, I don't know what to say about that girl... At least it wasn't that creepy character commenter at the door! lol...

...Blessings... :o)

Life with Kaishon said...

What in the world? This is too crazy for words! Too crazy!

Jules said...

Why did you pack a western omelet in your suitcase?

imbeingheldhostage said...

Another very obvious one-- DUH, MP. It means you are considering flying to England to see some sites the way people should and you're worried about what to bring, but don't be! I'm fine with jeans (leave the omelets behind, we can make new ones).
As for the Lindsay Lohan bit... no idea, but I once dreamed of Donny Osmond.


I LOVE having dreams of my dad because my mind knows he's gone and the time I have with him is special because of it. I hope your dream gave you some comfort in that area.

♥~♥ Tracey ♥~♥ said...

Er...you are secretly in love with Lindsay and want to save her from her spiraling out of control life?!?

:0) Just kidding.

xoxo

noble pig said...

That is seriously "I need more Chardonnay to forget about my dreams" kind of night.

Lover of Life said...

Wow, you're certainly busy. Worried about not getting something done on time?

Snooty Primadona said...

OMG! I'm draming I have phantom pains and now this with you.... strange times indeed.

TSannie said...

Ummm...you are my dearest friend and all your secrets are safe with me....

foolery said...

Consumed by what to do with all the fracking Easter eggs (how is your cholesterol count this week?)

Wanting to make a trip WEST to visit your Left Coast blogging pals.

In need of new clothes but always unable to justify it to your very proper Mama without a legitimate wardrobe malfunction.

Lindsey Lohan obviously represents fun and chaos, which are forthcoming this July.

Did I miss anything? No? Good. Drink up, my dear!

; )

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Yep more wine should clear things up!

Pouty Lips said...

Try not to worry about trivial matters. That is what the message is when you dream about stains. When you dream about buying clothes it means someone fancies you. The Lohan dream means you are the eternal nurturer.

AngelMc said...

I dream about my Mama all the time too. She's been gone...I can't say the D word...3 years now. And like your Mama, she always wanted me to dress well. No matter what I was doing, when I visited her she would always look me over from head to toe and give me her approval (or not). Even though it could be quite irritating, I know it was because she loved me and wanted me to look my best.

Country Girl said...

It's quite obvious that you're feeling that you are not ready for something.
I don't want to say anything more. Because most of us aren't ready when our children are poised to take flight.
