snoozing & dreaming & craving
last night i had a most unusual dream. i was wandering around a huge hippie artisan festival, something like the oregon country fair. i came to a booth where pickles, olives and sliced beets were being sold, all marinated in thc rich hemp oil. i really wanted to buy some, but couldn't bring myself to spend $20 on a tiny container. the olives were selling at $3 each. i thought about buying one each for dan and i, but still couldn't bring myself to spend $6 on two olives. so i considered buying myself one, just to see what would happen when i ate a thc marinated olive.
i guess i was pregnant in the dream. maybe i thought it might help with morning sickness? i woke before i'd made a decision.
i have had more aversions than cravings with this pregnancy. unfortunately i've had some difficulty eating the really good stuff: leafy greens. if anything, i've craved comfort food. potatoes. avgolemono soup. toasty bagles. the only really weird * i must have this now * craving i've had was for apple turn overs. dan ran out at 11pm one night to buy pepperidge farm frozen apple turn overs, because i woke up from a nap and needed an apple turn over right away. in a pinch, the pepperidge farm variety satisfied. dan is my hero.
waking from a nap at 11pm, you ask? for a while a couldn't help myself but fall asleep by 8pm. this usually meant that i would wake up by 3 or 4 in the morning, which just isn't ok in my world. so i got into a pattern of sleeping from 8 to 11pm -- waking up to watch david letterman during the best of his mccain jokes -- and then going back to sleep until a more sane 6am.
i'm managing to stay up until about 10 now. sometimes even 10:30.
ok. back to packing. tomorrow the move begins!
