Exhausting and Confusing

Some nights are just exhausting.  Exhausting and confusing.

Last night I dreamed that I was back in the car with my Pop on our long car trip.  In the dream I looked down at myself and thought, “What the hell!  I can’t be naked with my dad!”  I got out of bed and put on a t-shirt and got back in bed and fell asleep.

Sometime later I woke up overheated and thought, “What the hell!  Why am I wearing a shirt?”  Took it off and tossed it to the foot of the bed.

Ok, that’s odd enough.  I’ve never been a sleepwalker, let alone a sleep dresser.  But, here’s what’s even weirder: I did the whole thing AGAIN.  Dreamed the same dream, reached down to the foot of the bed and dragged the shirt over my head and fell back asleep.  Woke yet again and thought, “Why is this shirt back on?!”  Took it off and put it under my pillow.

I’m not feeling especially well rested today.

A sleep dresser . . . x2. That is a puzzler.

Two times?? That is strange. I read this post and all I could think of was how insanely bad it would be if I sleep-dressed. I'd be picking out belts & shoes to go with the shirt. It would last until morning! :)

I was a sleep-walker when I was young. This is fascinating. And frustrating.

Night sweats?

I have gone through the covers on/covers off, covers on/covers off stage. Maybe you just incorporated it into your dreams.

This sounds EXACTLY like something that I would do...

Depending on your size and kind of business, the amount of legislation around running your enterprise can be exhausting and confusing.
