  • Mood:


I had trouble going to sleep again last night. The night before, I wandered about the house letting it distract me into very trivial stuff. Last night, I went to bed. And still found trivial thinks to distract myself. Both nights, I didn't get sleep until I *ahem* amused myself. Last night, I even had trouble with that. Harumph.

It was so nice to have morning phone call with Wolf at wake-up time. I'm not sure I would have dragged myself out of bed in time for a shower otherwise, and well, let's just say that was important this morning.

So, yesterday's Rose is Rose reminded me of something. While other people's dreams about school seem to be either:
  • showing up for class naked, or
  • not going to school all term, and having exams
My dreams about school are always settling-in dreams. The term is just starting, and I can't lay my hands on the the room list, so I have to guess at where my classes are being held. Or, I don't have my schedule, so I have to guess at what class to go to next. Rarely, I dream I've just remembered I'm taking a class and having been attending it, or doing the work. But even then, there's no exam involved.

Okay, getting ready for another busy day:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
