“I woke up, to the feeling of moving, like seriously, I was MOVING – like down the street. I wondered WHAT THE HECK is going on as I noticed that before I knew it, I realized the electricity was off and I was on total darkness, the stereo was off and had stopped playing. This is the odd thing, I was too tired to worry about it and just stayed where I was, laying in my bed, I didn’t move a muscle. Honestly, the next thing I remembered, (not being woken up or anything), was the fact that I was in a line of people, a literal line in a very very dark and dismal movie theatre-looking lobby. Everyone was pretty much emotionless, colorless, and I turned my head and there was….Megan Ver Duin? Yes? She turned to me and I noticed she was the only one that had color, red lipstick, I remember red lipstick, and she said super slowly and softly to me, “There IS a line, and I will represent you. This is so much easier with you not having any previous court cases, this make it SO much easier.” I asked, “Why?” and she replied, “With you having no previous scuffles or conflicts you should be in and out, that is why”, the whole time speaking super slowly as she realized either I was still asleep or still waking up. I remember looking down at my dilapidated shoes afraid of what the honorable judge would think or say to me.
Didn’t matter, because the next thing I remember was paying, and I had no money but I did have my credit card, the total came to almost 350 pesos and I was relieved, – that paid the amount I still owed for back payment and the impoundment fee of my RV) – I had THAT but not the 2-3000 pesos I thought it would cost. I worried though, would I be able to a)Find my way back home from where I was since I was asleep during the trip and b)make it home without my RV being impounded again since I did not have a license plate on the RV, I mean, it was an RV after all and I never intended for it to be removed from its permanent spot.”
There, everyone tells me I need to stop, wake up, and write down the dreams I have, so as soon as I woke up with worry about how I was going to get home and not be pulled over by the police, I decided to record my dream. 1) I do not OWN an RV, 2) the threat of being over is ever present in Mexico City some days to me, and 3)Megan was the only thing that settled my fears in this dream, so what does that dream mean folks?
LOL, in the middle of trying to get all the Conference ideas out and into the open before I forget the last week, *it feels like a dream trying to get it all down before I forget the details!* yes, there has been things going on – other than dreaming, promise.
The puppies have become attached to me and do not want to leave my side, I have been able to introduce them to the outside and they have started to realize going the bathroom outside is MUCH better than inside (and the newspaper supply has been dwindling!) – this has been only going on for one week and they already are learning, I think there is hope…). I have figured out a how to walk all three, (we get stopped every block because people have to croon over them, they so get the attention) – I did get all their shots minus the rabies, so that is next on the list. They were SO WELL taken care of when I was gone, for a week in Chicago at the ALA Conference, if you need a caretaker, Walking Dog is AWESOME !
I haven’t quite gotten used to the retainer but it feels so amazingly good to have my braces off, Cynthia Castro is a MASTER – MASTER at Orthodontics and she took a 10+year ordeal for me and within 1 1/2 years made magic, she is A M A Z I N G.
The weather is beautiful, I love the long days I spend with Kinah, Wriggley, and Amaya outside in the different parks, we pick a different one every day! I talked to my friend Natalie and about 1/4 convinced I can run the marathon with her in Disney in January, that is closer to being convinced than I ever have so that scares me…
I have to say, my apartment is FINALLY getting organized, cleaned and I am motivated to do so a little every day, and with working on the Repentino. magazine details with new and returning staff, planning our New York trip details now already for March, I think it will be a year where I can be vacant on the weekends, VERY excited.
Okay, honest a few more posts about the Conference, AMAZING again how much I came across and away with in one week, but hope it can be used by others! Hope your summer is AWESOME so far!
