OK So I am up at 4:00 in the morning for a couple of reasons. One my dogs eat at night I can hear them chewing in the bedroom, it keeps me up. Two I work night shift so I am a bit of a night owl. Three the house it hot so with the change in weather I needed to cut the heat off and put the air on. And four, I had this crazy wild dream that woke me up from sleep and I needed to try to interpret it. My family is big on that, dream interpretation that is. My younger brother, mother and grandfather are all big dreamers and have always had some connection between their dreams and what is going on in their waking life or the life of those around them. So I pop out of bed running to look this dream up.

So the dream starts with me at my job as a nurse in the hospital and one of the unit secretaries comes to me and tells me that I accessed the internet and downloaded some virus that has shut the entire system down or infected the entire system. After arguing with her, I go to give report to the oncoming shift and realize that one of my patient's left the state to go to see her aunt and was planning on coming back later. It was only at this point that I realized that the physician did not give her permission to go. I start giving report to the nurse and then I leave.

The dream then fast forwards to my other job as a nursing instructor at a school here in the city. What is weird is that I took some time of from teaching to follow-up on the IF appointments and decide what we are going to do on that front. Anyways, the campus president comes to me with printouts that I made that were of test bank questions from another school I used to teach at. He accused me of selling the test banks and would not listen to any explanation I had. Apparently I was using the questions to make similar ones for my students to practice with for their nursing math competency exam. Anyways, our discussion got heated and I quit as I felt I was being disrespected. So I packed my stuff and was leaving the building. While leaving he stopped me at the door and started trying to offer me some incentive package to stay. Well, I then had him help me load my stuff up into my car and for some reason he was driving me home.

The dream then gets weirder - on the way home I make his stop so that I can buy a wig (I do not wear wigs IRL) but the wig store had been robbed so that took a while and he was getting upset. So I get to the house and it seems like we are packing to move. He starts helping me pack my car up and while he is loading up the car I start to do a load of laundry. He starts to rush me, and out of no where this other lady is with him (cannot reacall who she is) so I start trying to throw things together to get out of the house. While I am rushing, the clothes that I just washed are falling out of my box onto the floor - they are white and I cannot stop to pick them up. We get to the front door and it would not lock. There was a guard patrolling the neighborhood who stopped to see what was wrong and asked where my husband was. I forgot what I said but she did not call us by our right name. My husband's first name was right, but we had different last names and apparently she had a list that had said we had already moved and there were new people moving into the house.

Well at the end my campus president and this other woman in the care were rushing me so I had to leave the guard to try to lock the house up. He was still driving and could not get out of the neighborhood but had to drive out backwards. While driving we passed 2 friends of mine from Jr High School - one who has 5 children, and this other guy I had not thought of in years. That is when I woke up.


I guss I should mention that I had a huge Margarita from O'Charley's and a Bud Light before I went to bed so that may have induced these dreams, but usually when I dream that vividly it means something. My favorite place for dream interpretation is So I will cut and paste the dream dictionary pieces here and put what I think below it.


To dream about your current job, suggests that you need to work harder or be more effective at work. There may be something or some task that must be done at once. You may be overworked or preoccupied with work. You need to make time for leisure and relaxation.

To dream that you lost your job, represents instability and insecurity in your waking life.

This is interesting because I am always feeling that I forgot something at work or did not do something. There is the possibility that I am overworked because I am taking time off in a week so I am trying to get extra shifts in. In terms of insecurity the whole IF thing has me feeling insecure as a woman.

To see your boss in your dream, represents the bossy or authoritative side of your own personality. Your boss may reveal self-confidence and the assertive aspect of yourself. It is telling of your issues of control and authority. Alternatively, to see your boss in your dream may indicate your over-involvement or obsession with your work. Negatively, the boss in your dream may symbolize your limitations and lack of freedom/originality.

This supports the over-worked theme from above. I am not REALLY that bossy - but my students say I am, and so does hubby.


To dream that you resign from any position, indicates major changes in your life. You feel that you can no longer go on in the same course and must make drastic changes.

Maybe the IF issues? Not to sure what other changes there are - maybe that is yet to come.


To dream that you are being accused of something, indicates that you are feeling guilty. It may also mean that you are having some doubts about yourself and the choices you are making.

I also think this can be linked to the IF issues. On another note I am supposed to have oral surgery Tuesday and was thinking of cancelling. I am having orthodontic work done and this was to facilitate that however I was having second thoughts and thinking of taking another course (will have to blog about that at another time).


To dream that you are wearing a wig, symbolizes deception, incompetence, false impressions, pretentiousness and falsehood. You may be taking on other people's ideas and opinions and trying to pass them off as your own. You are not being true to your own beliefs. You need to start thinking for yourself. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor that you are "wigging out" or making a big deal over some trivial matter.

I am leaning to the "wigging out" piece here because I never really wore the wig. Maybe my frustrations and feelings over the IF situation is what brought this about? Not too sure here.


To dream that you are moving away, signifies your desire or need for change. It may also mean an end to a situation or relationship; you are moving on. Alternatively, it indicates your determination and issues regarding dependence/independence.

The change piece here also raises some questions, there were a couple other things that indicated change as well - so I am really wondering what is to come. There is some stuff going on with my brother and his ex-girlfriend that is changing the dynamics of our family so that may be the part that is changing now that I think about it. Hmmmmm. That now starts to make more sense.


To dream that you are doing your laundry, suggests that you are cleaning up your act or change your image. You are concerned about how you appear to others.

This one has me stumped too. Not too sure where this fits.

To see a lock in your dream, signifies your inability to get what you want or that you are being kept out of some activity or situation. Perhaps an aspect of yourself is locked up inside and needs to be expressed.

This totally sounds like the IF situation. Being unable to have a child right now and the possibilty of never having chidren.

To dream that the doors are closed or locked, signify opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on. Something or someone is blocking your progress. It also symbolizes the ending of a phase or project. In particular, if you are outside the locked door, then it suggests that you are having some anti-social tendencies.

To see opened doors in your dream, symbolize your receptiveness and willingness to accept new ideas/concepts. In particular, to see a light behind it suggests that you are moving toward greater enlightenment/spirituality.

Since the door never really locked I think I am going to take this as the openness to new ideas. I am also wondering that if because the door stayed open after trying to lock it that the opportunities are still out there and I have not missed out on them.


Well, any thoughts would be great. I am still trying to make sense of it all. My dogs are done eating so I will try to get some sleep now.


  1. Hmmm, I am in an Ativan-induced haze, so I will chew on this for a while, first. It does seem that we both will have impending change in our lives.

  2. I still don't know what to think about this!

  3. I know, it is crazy. My mom is supposed to look into it as well. So I will let you know her thoughts.
