This morning I had this dream where I am inside the first house that we owned. The windows are all covered with very long and heavy curtains, each one pulled tightly shut but the windows behind them are all open. We (I can't quite put my finger on who exactly is with me) are all inside in the house because there are people outside who are trying to get us. The odd part of this dream is that it seems to be the guys from Good Charlotte that are after us.

Every now and again I take a glimpse between the curtains. The scene behind my house is how it really is. The apartment buildings behind us are the same, right down to the wad of wet toilet paper that we sent up to the 3rd floor with our water balloon sling shot. I can even see the same cars that used to park at the apartment building out there. I see Flander's awesome Echo (Flanders will need to be explained in another, very long post) and it makes me shudder.
The sky looks like it does just before a thunder storm at dusk. It smells like there is a fire somewhere and it is eerily quiet. The street that we lived on was never quiet as it is only 1 block removed from a major route in the city. There is a calm that feels so uncomfortable due to the fact that I am scared shitless, trapped inside my little house.
At one point in my dream I see the block surrounding my house. I see it as I would imagine an out of body experience would be like. I am seeing everything from above. Although the view to the back of my house is exactly the same, the view in the front and of the block surrounding it, look nothing at all like what it really does. My house is the tiny house in the middle of huge, scary, plantation-like houses. There are many large, leafy trees on either side of the street.
I have no idea what this dream is about. I know that I am scared and I feel like I am trying to protect someone (this morning I got the distinct feeling that it was my daughters). I can't let anyone get in the house and I have to stop people from leaving as well. I wonder why some of the things that I am seeing are exact in detail and appearance but then other things are completely different........it is just weird. I only write about it here because I feel like I have had this, or a very similar, dream a few different times lately. Maybe having it here will allow me to look back if it happens again. Maybe someone out in bloggyland can offer some insight into what it means.
