A Weird Little Dream

I had a dream last night.

I came home from work and pulled into the driveway. The garage door went up and I parked in the garage, got my stuff together and went into the house.

Once inside, I turned the kitchen light on and went into the office. Put down my laptop and briefcase and then hung my coat in the closet.

I turned on the digital music channel I get from my DirecTV and went to pour myself a glass of wine.

Started a nice little fire in the fireplace, just to get the chill out of the air and then made a stirfry for dinner.

After eating at my kitchen table I went and started a load of laundry, just to keep things caught up. Took the clean stuff up to the bedroom and put it away in the bedroom closet.

Then I settled down on my couch with my wine, a favorite throw and a book to start my weekend.

Sounds kinda boring for a dream doesn't it? Well - not if you remember I live in an attic. No driveway, no garage, no office, no coat closet, no DirecTV, no fireplace, no laundry,no bedroom closet, not MY kitchen table and the couch is still in storage.

Being the holiday freak that I am, I'm really chaffin' a bit right now. The last time I really really got to put on the ritz for the holidays was December '04 living in Orlando. (and as the post states, it was beautiful, just not practical).

And before you say a word - I know it's only temporary. I know I know I know. BUT - folks, you never ever really appreciate what you have until you don't have it anymore. I miss a big house - decorated nicely. Filled with people. I miss that. Period. I'll get there again. I know it. But right now right here, I miss it. And that's ok. I'm not depressed, I'm not forlorned, I just miss a big house. Obviously - if I dreamt about it. I just thought it was weird that I actuall DREAMT about it so vividly.

...Then you wake up and your car is pulled into the neighbor's living room, you've stuffed dirty laundry into a garbage can outside, and there's a pile of burning shrubbery in the corner....
