My co-worker and I have worked closely together in the same office for almost 4 years now. We spend 8 hours together every day, 5 days a week, and I can't remember a time when we've not ever gotten along. She even got me hooked on scrapbooking, and we go to a scrapbooking class together once a month. I safely count her among my friends.
Yesterday I got to work, the first day that we were both there in the last week. When I walked in the office, the first thing she tells me is: "I had the worst dream about you last night!" Seems that her clothes dryer has been on the blink, so she dreamed that she brought her wet laundry into the office and had it hanging up everywhere to dry. Being the unreasonable person I am, I got angry with her and threw a fit about it.
Okay... don't know how I figured into that one, but doing household chores at work probably isn't the best idea! Unless you agree to do a little of my overdue ironing for me... ;-D
Early this morning I went out to wake the boys up to get ready for school. I woke Evan first, being that he's camped out on the couch for awhile. He sits straight up and says, "I had the worst dream about you last night!" Apparently in this one, I was the proud owner of a Corvette (Evan's favorite vehicle EV-AH). Because I am such an evil mom, I purposely drove the Corvette into a ditch full of water every day, just to tick him off. Each day he and Tom would have to use a tow truck and drag me out... He just couldn't believe that I would do that.
Now I know that he and I don't always see eye to eye, and I didn't give in and buy him the puppy he wanted for Christmas, but do I really seem that mean and vindictive?
Finally, I gave Tom his customary wake-up hug before heading out the door for work. Barely even opening his eyes he tells me "I'm mad at you!" During the night he dreamed that we went to the county fair together (which should have been his first clue that it was a dream - he'll NEVER go to things like that with me!). While there, he discovered that he had won a brand new John Deere riding lawn mower. Excited, he found me and tried to get me to go back with him to pick up his prize, but I wouldn't believe him. By the time I finally consented to go with him, somebody had stolen it. If only I'd have believed him...
Sheesh! And here I thought I was a nice, loving person. Guess not... :-)
