.I was exhausted yesterday after the gym - couldn't figure out what was going on. So I turned down an invite for coffee last evening - and went to bed early.....at 10pm
At midnight I woke from a bad dream - I was chasing after two people - one who greatly resembled a local Dom (go figure) He had a manila folder that he was trying to steal.... and I was chasing him.
I shook off the dream - rolled over and went back to sleep. At 2 am I awoke from the SAME dream! This time I was running through a house I didn't recognise - still trying to find this man. While I lay there trying to shake the dream I realized I was freezing cold.....I got up and put on socks and a sweater over my Pjs - turned up the heat and crawled back into bed.
At 3 am I was awake again. This time I was trying to stop the man from shredding this folder. I was still cold and shaky - and I remember thinking that this was one weird dream - It was like a full length feature film - not short cuts of scary stuff.
At 5 I was awake again - same man still lingering in the shadows of my dark dream.....
Missy the cat woke me at 7 ..... the dream was fading - but it was still running in my head.
I realized when I finally got my eyes open and my feet on the floor - that I am down for the count. I am feverish and my bones ache - my head hurts - I feel like crap.
I think my body has decided it is time to slow down........ take stock ... pamper and rest.. and maybe the gym isn't the germ free place I thought it was...........
