Last nights dream was just strange to me, as most of my dreams are.
Matt, the kids and myself were planning a trip up to see his dad. We packed the kids in the truck and headed northbound. Matt was driving the truck and i was riding shotgun. He was driving really close to the lake and it seemed to be flooded. There were ice chunks and snow around and a lot of people all along the shore. We stopped the truck and got out. Eli wanted to go swimming but i was clearly too cold. I stepped into the water and it was warm. We were then up and in a hotel. My sister, he husband and her kids were there as well. Briana and I had tickets to some kind of red carpet awards down at the hotel across the street. We went down and there were some celebrities around. I remember some kind of issues like a broken window but we did end up in the theartre and watched some of the awards.
Later we were still "up north" and on the way to matts fathers but i was at a. Itallian wedding for some reason. It was in a large room that reminded me much of a cafeteria and i remember looking at some people but not really noticing the rest. The room was filled with people though. I went outside to have a ciggerette with a group of men and was talking with on in particular. He was older, about his mid 50's or so and he was telling me about the bride and groom. The groom was one of 12 members of the band "Boston". (I know there are not 12 people in the band but that was the case in my dream. lol! ) As we were out side i jumped up and was up on the wall of the building near the roof. I kind of floated down and lit a ciggerette. One of the men was startled and taken back by me jumping like i did. He suddenly was "on to me" and knew i didnt really belong at the wedding. There was a monkey on the porch with a gun and was fumbling around with the shotgun and almost shot himself a few times. I ran around the building to avoid the monkey with the gun.
I went back into the wedding and was drinking a Fresca. The man from outside came up to me and asked me for my credit card, I told him no and he tried robbin gme of it. He said i owed 16$ for the soda. I told him no way and ran out of the wedding. He asked if i was staying for dinner and i told him no because they w ould probably charge me for it. I ran out and ran down the street. A blonde girl about the same age as me was chasing after me. I took of running down the side walk of streets just out side of the city. The girl was trying to talk to me but i dont remember what she was saying. Then the side walk eneded and we were at the ocean. It was crystal clear and sapphire blue. The sun was beating down and it was beautiful. We both ran off of the sidewalk and jumped, fully clothed into the water. It felt great. Then we noticed that we were in someones back yard and the woman was sunbathing on her porch. She glanced at us as we climbed up the ladder on her peir. She didnt say a word, but we had apologized and left walking through her house. As we passed by the hallway there were a few guys in a room smoking and playing some video games. The blonde girl wanted to stay and i was out of there. As i walked out of the front door of the house and the blonde girl was there on the stoop looking up at me in only a white dress shirt and soaked from jumping into the water. I was then worried about my phone and the fact that it was wet and i needed to find Matt and the kids to head up to his dads house. I tried using my phone but it was all messed up and crackling because of water damage. I tried looking in my phone for matts number but it wasnt in my phone at all. I decieded to turn it off untill it dried and maybe i would have a better chance at it working.
I walked allong with the blonde girl still following me. We eneded up in the middle of the city at a train station. We were sitting around waiting for the train outside and talking with a group of black men. I remember talking to one in particular and telling him about my experience at the wedding and then what happened to my phone. There was then two blonde girls there with me. They were both talking crap about the other and comparing body types. One was a bit larger than the other but she seemed happy and content, the other was still big but had some surgery done to her figure and she was flaunting it. I then walked away and tried calling matt again. The communication was still broken up but we eneded up meeting by the side of the road. Just Briana and Matt were in the truck and i was instantly worried about my son Elijah. I awoke worried because he had a fever before bed last night.
