All I have to do is dream
by the Everly Brothers
I need you so, that I could die/ I love you so, and that is why/ Whenever I want you, all I have to do/ Is dream
I'm not much of one for dreaming, at least that I can remember. I've been keeping a dream journal since I was in college, and I'm still on that same first notebook, about halfway through. It is very unusual for me to remember a dream in the morning, and even more unusual for me to view the things that happen in the dream as real at the time. Usually, I am aware that it's a dream even while it's happening.
Last night, I dreamed that this cycle worked, and I was pregnant! And then, I was huge, and in labor, and totally confused. I turned to another woman in the room (who turned out to be a friend from high school), and said "but this is way too soon, I just found out I'm pregnant!" and then LB burst in with "no, she's at about 38 weeks. The time has just flown by. She's ready." And then the baby was coming! Craziness.
When I told LB about the dream, her response was "[high school friend] is NOT going to be anywhere near the room when you're in labor!" Of course, I'm not planning to give birth in a tropical pool below a waterfall, either, so it's probably not real prophetic.
In my terminal need to prepare for a baby that isn't even a spark in its mama's eye yet, I am knitting a maternity tank top for myself. I finished the first armhole this evening, and hopefully can complete the second arm hole and the neck edge soon. I'll post pictures when it's done, and hopefully will get some use out of it soon :)
When I need you, in my arms/ When I want you, and all your charms/ Whenever I want you, all I have to do/ Is dream.
