A Brady Kind Of Dream

Hello Everyone,

I am the type of person that can just go to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. My husband can't. He will lay in the bed a good hour or so before he wakes me up with his snoring. I usually sleep extremely well, until he wakes ME up for snoring. Now I never wake him up when he is snoring. It really agitates me when he does this. He will also wake me up if I am muttering or making noises in my sleep. When I do those things I am usually dreaming.

Last night he woke me up because I was screaming. Now usually if I am screaming I am having a nightmare. But last night when he woke me I was dreaming of Greg and Peter Brady. They looked like they did in the tv series, not like they look today. I don't remember what they did to me but I was screaming at them.

They were both standing there looking at me like this:

I'm thinking that maybe I was thinking of them because a couple of days ago my husband was telling me about Maureen McCormick's book, "Here’s the Story”. Apparently she was having sex for drugs, she also wrote about her depression, and her eating disorder. Well you know what my husband zoomed in on. My husband has always loved Maureen McCormick so when he read this in the paper that's what he came home talking about. "Maureen McCormick had sex for drugs". "If I had known that back then". "What? What if you had known it back then?" "I would have been right there every time she ran out!" Men!

Moving on - I am about to finish the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert here's the cover.

It is a good book. She takes a year off and travels to Italy, India and Indonesia. She goes to each place for a different reason. But she tells how she is also looking for a higher spritual experience and to find herself. You know it got me to thinking. I have always known who I am. I find it kind of hard to understand people who have to go "find themself". I also feel lucky that I have never had to look for a higher spiritual experience. I have always known God. I have experienced the Holy Ghost. He's just always been a part of my life. I have never felt like I had to find myself. Have any of you?

I guess that's it for today. I need to finish up some work and hopefully leave a little early to start my weekend. I have quite a busy one. I hope everyone has a good weekend. Oh and Roll Tide Roll!!!!

Have a blessed day!

I think I would have had to step on his pinkie toe for that comment! ha ha boys are such goofballs I tell ya! I talk in my sleep as well. Thank Goodness I am such an honest person other wise I might be giving up the info. ha ha
I think it took a few days to get my CWB. My daughter has been saying since she was two and watched an older child play at a festival we have here in Scottsboro that she wanted to play the Violin so when the Huntsville Symphony sent a lady over to teach I thought perfect now we will know if she has talent or even ready to do this. Turns out she is pretty good for a kid who has only taken 10 30 lessons. So we are going to try and find her a teacher local or to Huntsville we will go! So happy I found another Alabama mom. I bleed orange and blue even though we stink! ha ha ;) WAR EAGLE! I will be back as well. Blessings!

That dream/pic of the Brady boys gave me a good LOL!

So what do you really think of that book? Ppl seem to either love it or hate it. I've debated reading it for awhile. It's sort of 'known' in the infertile community as a source of encouragement. What do you think?
