I’m usually pretty good at sleeping. There have been occasional periods where I wake up at night solving the problems of my life. There has been twice now where I’ve woke up at night having very real and vivid nightmares about “what could have happened”.
The first time was on my honeymoon almost 15 years ago. Leading up to the wedding, I was amazed that I slept like a baby. The wedding went off fine. But then on our first night in Hawaii, I woke up having nightmares about the wedding; I was late; my dress fell apart; no one showed up! This continued for a couple nights.
Lately, I’ve been waking up having dreams about making sure to get all the stuff packed and making sure the old house was clean and painted. Not one dream but repetitive and similar dreams. The only thing in common with these two times is that the time leading up to the dreams was stressful and that I only have them in Hawaii. Is this some weird Hawaiian spirit haunting me?
I don’t know but I hope it stops soon! I have enough new things to worry about! We’ve started making decisions about our flooring, paint colors and order of execution. I’m waiting for my
elbow to heal more before really starting work. Peter still laughs at me and says I can’t sit still.
So the rain keeps coming in Hawaii. Maui hasn’t gotten hit nearly as hard but it has been predominately cloudy with major occasional rains since I got here. Makes me wonder why they don’t have gutters on houses here in Kihei though. The weather guy says it should get back to normal soon. I move to Hawaii in the worst rainy season ever. It’s limited a few projects but hasn’t slowed me down too much. I’m glad I decided to wait picking out window coverings here though. I’ve never lived in a place where I’ve opened and closed windows so much! I woke up this morning and air smelled so fresh – fresh and floral. Saw a bright red bird enjoying the worms in my grass!
