parties and weird noises and strange dreams

This is a hodgepodge post with 3 points and no plot.

#1 - This weekend we had our first party in our new home, a housewarming. It was so much fun to have our friends see our place. It was also a good time for us to reflect on how much we have accomplished since we moved in March. Except for our computer desks, the folding bookcases, and a cedar chest that was my grandmother's, every piece of furniture in the house has been replaced in 6 months.  Whew! Still not 100 % done but enough of it was complete that it "feels" done. As always with us and parties, we had way too much food.

#2 - Something woke me up at about 2am this morning. I can only describe it as a "clicking sound", like if you had one of those toys you would use to click for dog training. I have no idea what it could be. It went on for about 1/2 an hour and then stopped.

#3 - Last night I dreamt I was going to prision. They told me I could let people know I was going to be taken in on Monday so I was busy trying to notify my boss and my family but then they wouldn't tell me where they were taking me. They were being very nice but kept saying "No, you can't take any paper with you. No, you can't take anything to write with. No, you can't take any books." They said I wouldn't have to wear a uniform but I would have to stay there for "quite a while" so I should get used to the idea.

 I haven't figure out what it all means yet. 

Or maybe I have and I don't like the answer. Sigh.

About #2: I suspect your dog was just messin' with you.

About #3: It sounds like your subconscious is starting to want to write again. That's a good thing.

I wish #2 was the dog but it was over my head, like the attic or the roof.

#3 - I DO feel like writing again and have several ideas, am beginning the research, etc. But what I am afraid the dream is saying is that I need to keep up the day job (prision) and I can't write or even think like a writer while I am there and there's no telling how long I will have to stay there.

PRISON sounds like HELL to me! Especially for someone like YOU!

yes - hell for us both, that's for sure!

I am trying an attitude adjustment though - telling myself that I will be stuck in hell unless I get myself writing again and soon.

Clicking
This is probably bad news, but I'm guessing it's mice. Did it sound like they were tap-dancing? :)

Re: Clicking
LOL on the tap dancing. I don't think it's mice. At the house we rented a while ago we had rats in the walls and I know what those sound like. This was very much in rhythm. Sigh. about to go to bed now and we'll see if it happens again tonight.

moving/parties
Wow! Replacing almost all the furniture? Fun! That sounds like what we're about to do...but mostly because it wasn't right for this house, or it wouldn't fit up/down stairs. We'll have to hold off for a bit though. We need to get this house sold soon!

I would guess squirrels upstairs, but my squirrels sounded like a bear dragging a pine tree across the ceiling. I remember slamming the door shut and calling my husband, insisting that whatever was up there would come crashing through the ceiling at any minute.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
