I'm laying down, kind of like I'm in a water bed, kind of like I'm floating. I'm wrapped in a blanket .... of sorts. You know pebble paved sidewalks?

The blanket is like a soft plastic covered with hard, scratchy rocks like that. I'm moving around, but I can't get out. There is an 8 year old boy (don't ask me how I know he was 8, he just was) stuck in there, too. He's about 5 feet away from me and I can see him every now and then as the blanket waves up and down. Suddenly I realized we are floating in this blanket above Anderson Lane, near where Northcross Mall used to be.

Then later that same little boy and I are at a house. It's actually 3 double wide trailers joined together to form a U and inside the U is just a pile of dirt and a wooden picnic table. There are other kids there, but he won't play with them because he's upset about being stuck in the blanket earlier.

Dream dictionary:

"Stuck: To dream that you are stuck, represents helplessness and feeling of being unable to escape from life's problems/stress. You have lost confidence in yourself and in your ability to move ahead in your life. Your lack of clear goals and low self-esteem may be a common cause for such dreams." Hmm nope. I actually, feel in life right now that I am close to the light at the end of the tunnel to all the hard work we've put in over the last 6 years. I don't really feel helpless, or stuck in my problems at all.

"Stones: To see rough stones in your dream, represents your quest in recognizing and developing your self-identity. Part of this quest is to become aware of your unconscious and suppressed thoughts." Hmm this seems to be a theme in my dreams lately. Finding myself, etc.

"To see children in your dream, you may longing for the past and the chance to satisfy repressed desires and unfulfilled hopes." Maybe something along the lines of fullfilling my inner child? I've had that show up a lot in my dreams lately, and in real life I have been feeling ... boring. Feeling like, "Why can't I have fun like I used to?" and I've been trying to remember and find activities I really enjoy. I've been trying to remember who I was ... before I turned into the cookie cutter version of myself (that I don't like very much).

The End.

Wait a minute. Northcross Mall isn't there anymore? What about the ice skating rink??

you couldn't be cookie-cutter if you tried. You, Sara Louise, are one of a kind.
