When Dreams are Just Dreams

Have you ever had a really great dream that was so vivid and so real and made you so happy that when you wake up and realize it was only a dream that it just makes you really sad?  It happened to me a couple of nights ago.  It was so very detailed.  D and I were on a travel website looking at vacation options and we found a place in Destin, Florida (one of our favorite getaway spots), that was available for check-in the next day.  We booked it!  We were doing all this at night and only had a few hours to get everything together before we left to make the drive down the next morning.  I was calling to make arrangements with my job and he was calling his shop guy making arrangements for our business.  I called our dog-sitter but she was unavailable, so we were just like, “We’ll just take them with us!”  I was so excited because I’ve always wanted to take the dogs to the beach with us.  I was laying clothes out on the bed to pack when I was awakened by our cat declaring breakfast time.  For just a second when I woke up, I was like, “YAY, we leave today!!!!”  And then it hit me.  “No.  We don’t.”  I was deflated.  And that feeling stuck with me for several hours before I could shake it!

I’ve had bad dreams lots of times where when I woke up I was incredibly relieved to realize it was just a dream, but this is the first time I can remember it happening the opposite way.  I can’t say I like it at all.

When was the last time you had a really life-like dream that had a lasting effect on you?

One thought on “When Dreams are Just Dreams

  1. No good dreams that I can think of, but I did have a horrible, terrible dream after I started watching Walking Dead. It was awful and threw me off the entire next day and night. But that’s what happens when you’re a pansy like me.
