my dream...

I was in the kitchen and I was really hungry. I thought “I should have made those cookies from that jar” that would have taken too long at that point, so I opened the cupboard and found some little square Ghirardelli chocolates. They were in a red wrapper. I took one out, but there was something written on the back. I can’t remember what it said. Someone then told me that I couldn’t eat it because they were someone else’s. I threw the half opened chocolate back into the canister and went into the living room. My mom was in there. I looked out the window and saw a tornado coming toward the house. As it got closer it was 2, and then 4. They all came around the house to the front, and I shut the front door and was leaning with my back against it, trying to hold it closed. My mom came and sat on the sofa next to the door. The door started being sucked outward, so I stepped away from it. At that point the door opened and my mom got sucked out into the tornado.

When I woke up, I almost called my mom to make sure she was ok, but it was 3am. I'm not sure she would have appreciated it. Since then I went to to see what the important parts of the dream meant. Here's what I found out:

To dream that you are hungry signifies a feeling of unfulfilment in some area of your life. You may be starving for recognition, power, sex, wealth, or fame. You are longing to achieve something that you have desired for awhile.

To dream that you are baking cookies signifies feelings of optimism or an increase in productivity. You may also experience a rise in status (perhaps I should have been more optimistic??)

To see chocolate in your dream signifies self-reward. It also denotes that you may be indulging in too many excesses and need to practice some restraint.

To see several tornadoes in your dream, represent people around you who are prone to violent outbursts and shifting mood swings. It may also symbolize a volatile situation or relationship

To see your mother in your dream represents the nurturing aspect of your own character.

So in applying this to my life:

I feel as though the nuturing aspect of myself is being sucked out by the volitile relationships I have at work. I also feel as though all my hard work should be recognized, but has not been.
I also feel that I'm overindulging myself, and that my attitude is not as positive as it should be.

In conclusion:

I need to start exercising more and taking responsibility for things that need to be done.
I need to stop worrying about work since I won't be there much longer.

I had the last two days off and I have to say that i've started applying this conclusion. On Wednesday I, with the help of my sister (online), folded all the laundry (about 4 loads that had been laying around), cleaned the shower, made the bed, put away the clean dishes, organized the baby stuff that was EVERYWHERE, cleaned the stove and counters, and finished making my baby shower invitations. On Thursday I finished the baby sling I made for our friend whose baby was born in December, washed the dishes, made dinner, and started on another flower washcloth. I think I've done a lot in the last few days. I also made time to go out with our friends and take a nap. We also went to the grocery store and picked up a few things we'd been out of for a while (like milk). Today I have a very small to do list because I have to go to work at 1, but I've already done one of those things. Maybe if I can keep this up I won't have any more weird disturbing dreams.
