Spinning Out of Control & WIAW 11.21.12

Posted Nov 21 2012 9:38am

This morning around 4AM I woke up sweating from a bad dream.  What I remember is that I was driving in a car [with no passengers] and was stopped at an intersection.  After looking both ways and didn’t see anyone coming, I proceeded to cross.  All of a sudden, I looked to my left and there was a car coming.  It plowed into the backside of my car and my car started spinning out of control.  I immediately woke up, shot up in bed, and couldn’t get back to sleep.

I’m guessing that dream stemmed from the worries I’m having about Ryan’s surgery this afternoon.  I know that it’s on his ankle and they’re not going anywhere near any vital organs, but there is always risk involved in surgery and I don’t like that.  I don’t like when things are out of my control [i.e. spinning out of control] and welp, surgery is certainly out of my control.

I’m beginning to think that hospital visits are becoming a holiday tradition in our family.  Last year Ryan had an appendicitis and this year it’s his ankle.  Next year I told him it’s my turn but for happier reasons- hellooo parenthood.  Read: I am KIDDING!  Absolutely and totally JOKING!  Just trying to lighten ze mood!  Sorry momma and Ryan if I caused you a slight, momentary scare :P   That’s still a few years away.

Moving onto yummier thoughts, What I Ate Wednesday [WIAW].  I’ve been feeling snacky and loving cranberries + walnuts lately…

Thanks Jenn for hosting another tasty link-up!

always gotta end the day on a sweet note *holy cranberry, these. cookies. are. awesome!*

Ryan’s surgery isn’t until this afternoon so we’re about to head out to Target for some retail therapy.  I’m planning to pack a lunch and bring my computer for some blog reading while his ankle is getting all fixed up.  I hope all y’all traveling today stay safe and out of traffic!

Question:  What’s your favorite holiday combo?  I was all about pumpkin this fall but chocolate + peppermint and cranberries + walnuts are tasting mighty fine nowadays!

Question:  When you’re stressed or worried, do you get bad dreams?
