Hello and happy Friday!
If you ever doubted, jet lag is real. And depending on how you look at it, my jet lagged REM state is either benefitting from the time change or become a victim to it because this girls dreams have become vivid with a capitol V.
And now Kanye West is following my daughter on Instagram.
My jet lagged dreams have been both good and bad. And because they’re still dreams, they don’t always make sense.
One night’s dream I was with a friend whose baby fell and cracked her head open. I woke up at 4 am arguing with myself whether it’s smarter/faster/better to call 911 than to rush her to the hospital ourselves.
Last night’s dream had me at some public social gathering and with a group of people and Kanye West was one of them. And I have to say, he’s a really kind man. I mean, he did ask me to answer his Blackberry for him as if I was an employee (lame) but we chatted a ton and when I told him my daughter was a fan and how she’d freak out if he followed her on Instagram, he did so right there. I wonder if he’ll remember to unfollow her when he wakes up from the dream too? :)
I don’t typically remember my dreams, but I’ve noticed since I’ve stopped/taken a break/quit? drinking alcohol, dreams are my nighttime buddies far more than they used to be. My husband also says I’ve become an early morning snoring machine.
Better, more restful sleep is what I’m attributing it all to.
Speaking of jet lag, thank you for your emails and comments requesting a Paris travel guide. I’ll start working on one!
