Dreaming of a Spanish Woman

As some of you may know, Justin has been out of town for a few days.  He is in Switzerland at an arts and music conference.   I was super worried about not being able to sleep while he’s gone because for the last 8 years I have either been married, or had a roommate.  There has been a handful of days where I have had to sleep in an apartment or house alone, so I am not very keen on staying by myself!   My first night was WONDERFUL!  It was way better than I could have imagined.  I took a bath and got cozy.  Then I read for a bit and fell right asleep. 

Last night was just a little different.  I knew I had to wake up early for a seminar where Brian McLaren was the speaker, so I wanted to get as much sleep as I could.  I tried to do the bath thing to relax, but by the time I got home and finished emailing everyone back, it was already 1am.  I needed to get to sleep fast, so I hurried through my "relaxing" bath and got into bed to read for a bit.  I was stressed about not being able to fall asleep while every horror movie I had ever watched came crashing through my mind.  I actually did fall asleep pretty quickly (so I thought).  It was the kind of sleep where you drift into and out of sleep all night long, looking at the alarm to see the time every 1/2 hour or so.  It was HORRIBLE!  I finally fell into a deep sleep at 5:43am just to wake up at 6:22am needing to use the bathroom.  Between the hours of 6:22am and when my alarm went of at 8:15am, I dreamt that Justin was in love with a Spanish woman who he met at the conference.  I was so jealous in my dream!   During this dream I had talked to Frank (my team leader) about Justin loving this other woman.  I told him how I couldn’t sleep and he told me to go ahead and miss the seminar.  So, at 8:15am when my alarm started to buzz, I reached right over and turned that sucker off!  I woke up at 11:00am realizing it was all a dream and that I had already missed the first two hours of the seminar.  So annoying.  I am going to have to explain to Frank that HE is the one who told me to miss the seminar, even if it was my dream. 

So, I called Justin today to ask him if there were any beautiful Spanish girls at the conference.  He told me, "No.  Sorry Jen, your dreams will not come true."  Thank goodness.
