Was with my mom in her attic. My kids were there too. Was trying to convince mom to have a handyman fix the eaves in her attic to make the room into a playroom for the kids.

Was trying to talk to the handyman on the phone but the kids were being noisy and I couldn't hear the man.

I remembered I had forgotten to go to work all week and was wondering if I still had a job.

Was with two of my girls, when they were young. We were in their elementary school. I was giving mk a shower and I dyed her hair red, while it was in a braid. She had really long hair. Her teacher was right next to the shower and told me it was time for class.

It was hard rinsing the dye out of her hair.

Was back at the factory. But they didn't have me doing assembly work, they wanted me to type a paper on their laptop. I was having trouble using it as I'm not familiar with laptops.

I asked if I could get a cup of coffee. But when I went to the cafeteria no one would make the coffee.

I went back down to the big room and tried to use the laptop but kept making mistakes.

Was at the facility where my mom lived. They were having a buffet. I was trying to help mom get a plate of food but they wouldn't serve me.

I was in a big bedroom with my youngest daughter. I was trying to organize the room. I had lots of blankets to fold and stack. There were even more baby blankets. I folded them all and stacked them neatly in the corner.

I don't know whether bad dreams do, in fact, reflect my mental state.

I can have bad (usually, family of origin stuff) dreams even when i think I'm doing very well.

They seem to come out of nowhere - like relapse dreams.

My old factory job called me to ask if I could work for them. I went in, it was night shift, and this time I learned how to clock in and out so I'd get paid.

My daughter ck was in the dream, she was taking care of my dogs while I was working. She came home from school and let them out.

After working, I went to go home but had a hard time finding my car.

When I woke up I was disappointed cause I wouldn't get paid cause it was all a dream and I didn't really have a job.

Was back at the factory but was on break. I wanted coffee but only had a twenty dollar bill so was asking where the change machine was. I found it but it was open so I just took my change and left the bill.

I was looking for my computer (a laptop) but couldn't find it in my locker. Then I was asked about the broken change machine.

I found myself walking a road outside the factory. Then I woke up.

Was with two of my kids, ck and mk, at their school. Was talking to the teacher, then left. Halfway down the hall I realized I didn't have my bag so went back to get it.

Then we were in NYC, going to visit my sister. She told us to take a bus to her place. I told the bus driver where we wanted to go and he told me to get off at the 90's. I was trying to use my phone to call her. When we got off the bus we had to walk to her apt.

We got to her place and were talking. The kids were excited to be in the city.

Then I woke up.

I dreamt I was driving and hit something, scratching the side of my car. I flipped out cause I can't afford the deductible.

I notice I've been extra vigilant today when driving. I looked at my car this morning and was relieved the damage was just part of a dream and I didn't really hit something.

I was back at the factory. They were making it into an assisted living facility and were making windows. I had to get the windows to the place they were installing them. I had my car and was going to take the windows in my car but didn't know how to get to where they were supposed to go.

My car was not my car, it was an old VW bus.

I asked if I could come back to work there but they said I didn't show up last time they hired me. I was thinking of all the money I was making. I remember my arms hurt from holding the windows all night long.

I was taking my kids to their first day of school. We went into the school and I laid my bag down on the steps and went to take them to their classrooms. I came back to where we'd come in and found that someone had stolen my keys and wallet and cell phone.

I went to the principal's office to report it. I felt so stupid for having left my stuff unattended. I called the police to report it.

When I woke up I was so relieved that I still had my keys and cell phone and wallet.

Dreamt that Community Action had moved into my old house, the little quonset hut. They changed the downstairs around and made it into a factory for making cellulose. (???) I was helping by installing the doors on the factory. (???) My ex bil was there, and I asked him for a job.

Then the dream changed and they were having a dinner for the staff. I was still there, and had my youngest daughter there with me. They ran out of food before daughter could get any.

They were going to buy the house behind the quonset hut to make a driveway up to the factory's back door.

None of this makes sense but that's how the dream went.

In my dream, my mother was a young girl. I was an adult and she was young and we encountered some of her other kids. She had kids we never knew about. They were nice people. Despite them being mom's other kids, they were adults and mom was a child. (???)

We were driving in the countryside. Ended up at a big party. All the people there were relatives of mom's kids.
