I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I have nightmares every night. Last night I came home from work exhausted, hurting and sick. I took a bath and went straight to bed. Then, strangely enough, I had one of the best dreams I've had in a long time. It was one of those amazing weather days—sunny, warm but not too warm. We were at "home" but "home" was unique because we shared a yard with my parents. Our dogs were playing in the large yard—as my parents recently lost their dog, this was a new one I haven't met yet. My sister, Nikki, called and wanted to know if I wanted to go on walk. She was taking her dog for a walk and wanted to know if Kenya and I wanted to join them. Apparently, they only live a couple blocks away in this dream. I remember thinking "Wow, it's so great to live this close together. This is so much fun." Then I woke up—sick, with a headache, to the rainy, dreary day OH has to offer and my family all 1000 miles away. Maybe I can nap soon and find another "happy place" instead of the usual scary place I usually find—especially given how "scary" my awake world is today. :-D


  1. That dream sounded really nice. I want to go for a walk with you guys (: By the way what kind of dog did I have? Just curious (:

    We'd love to go on that walk. Sorry about the rainy day. I might be out in Cincy in a few weeks for a conference. I have to get it approved by the Elders tomorrow night. The dates are Feb. 22nd-25th. I'd come a day early or stay a day late (depending on your schedule) to see you guys. However, the Elders might think it's too costly this year. I'll let you know. I hope all is well with yoy and Ralph. Keep dreaming.


  4. Hey, It sounds to me like your dream is prophetic and you will be moving back to MN. I'll take that. :)
