Weird Dream

earlier tonight i was watching a documentary about UFOs and alien abductions and i fell asleep on the couch. at some point i woke up enough to turn it off, but then i fell back asleep. i had a very vivid dream that there was an alien in my apartment and he was coming to get me. i screamed really loud and woke myself up. i was still on the couch and i was very scared. i asked my husband if he heard me screaming and he said no, but then i woke up for real and i was just fine. i've never had a dream within a dream before. i thought that was something the tv people just made up. it was so real, too. i actually thought that i was awake. anyway, i guess the moral of the story is don't watch scary things before bed. yeah, right. like i'll stop doing that.

I used to watch X-Files, and I would have the craziest dreams on the nights I watched that show! I can't watch scary stuff at night time or I won't sleep! You are a braver person then I am!

when I was pregnant I would get dreams within dreams all the time. My "record" was when I was pregnant with Keenan. 5 Dreams within a dream. It took me FIVE times to "wake up" before I woke up for real! I am sure there is a term for it.

first of all I turned off the TV and the DVD player. Second of all I tried to wake you up to get you to come to bed but you wouldn't. I tried 3 times and on the third you asked me who I was so I told you I was an alien here to abduct you and take you away.
