The funniest thing happened last night while I was sleeping. I was having this very strange dream about having to drive this tiger around in the back of my car. I was frightened because I knew it was getting hungry and I was scared it was going to eat me. Some person kept making me drive it around though. Makes no sense. Anyway, I was taking a pee break from all the driving and I noticed a man in his car who was looking at me pee (apparently the outhouse I was in had a bid window) so suddenly I jumped at the window and started snarling at him…a very loud snorting of some sort. In my mind I was wondering what I was doing and I had become the tiger or something, I even thought the tiger may have suddenly possessed me. Anyway, I wake myself up because I’m actually SNORTING very loudly. I look over and Brent’s staring at me blankly. He doesn’t wake up easily so it must have been really loud. I tried to tell him what was happening but he fell back asleep. We had a good laugh about it this morning on the phone. What a weird thing for him to wake up to.
Completely different subject but I need to share something with you Americans. STOP VOTING FOR SANJAYA!! GOSH. He’s soooo bad. Someone amazing went home last night and Sanjaya was still in good standing. I couldn’t believe it. Stop letting your tweens vote for him, I’m going crazy!!
Anyway. I didn’t get to nap today or yesterday, I just couldn’t fall asleep. Today Silas woke up about 20 mins early but then fell back asleep on me. I was able to bring him over to the couch and lay down with him in the most spectacular cuddling position. I was slowly drifting off to sleep when a very warm hand touched my cheek. I opened my eyes to see his very happy face looking at me. He said “hi” and then poked me in the eye repeatedly saying “eye eye”. It was a lovely end to my “nap” even though I didn’t get any sleep. At least I’m trying so I can tell my doctor that.
I’m stoked for the long weekend. I think we’ll go look at cars tomorrow and try and figure out what we want. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll try and make some pasca for easter. It’s an easter bread, a Mennonite tradition and it’s amazing. It takes a lot of time so we’ll see. I’m really craving it though. I’m trying to embrace some Mennonite traditions for my family because it’s my husband’s heritage. I never knew much about Mennonites, I did go to a Menno church but it wasn’t um…traditional. Anyway, excited for easter!!
The feeling of a baby’s hand touching you and waking you like that is simply amazing! I swear there’s nothing like it. That and cuddling with a freshly bathed baby – OMG I can’t wait to have that again.
oh my gosh. this is the best post i’ve read all day. i completely agree with you about sanjaya. HE IS AWFUL. his faux hawk and all. oh gosh. awful. the snorting thing.. same goes with me. i also have recently started talking to myself in my sleep and i wake myself up. conor has a new way of letting me know when i go on these sleep rants.. he taps me.. and i stop for a while.. but it is this new thing, and gosh, i hope it goes away once the baby is born.
Ha Ha! I used to know a fishing guide who went fly fishing in his sleep. I was constantly woken up by the thud of his hand as it wacked the wall when he cast his fly. Oh my what weirdness. Take a nap little sister!
