of strange dreams and schedule things

I have been thinking about what I'm going to do when I finish the zebra knife and the CCA grips. I'll have about a week before I leave for some horsey adventures.

1) not look through the microscope for at least a day or two ;-)
2) start preliminary drawings for next pistol grip projects
3) bake chocolate mint sandwich cookies
4) sew something small and frilly (but not pink)
5) start a drawing project (details to be determined)
6) make strawberry jam!!!!

I had a weird dream last night. I probably shouldn't write these things here, someone out there will analyze me and decide I'm a weirdo, but whatever. I was running late for school (it's been a long time since I was in school!). It was morning, very early, fairly dark, and raining. I hadn't packed up my lunch the night before, I was scrambling to get it done though I had already missed the bus. But I could hitch a ride with my brother, if I hurried. I ran outside just as he was pulling away in the minivan (not what he drove in high school), I ran to catch up and he would swerve away, taunting me. I slipped and fell, but the back end of the minivan opened up and my cousin and a friend of my brother's pulled me in, laughing. And then we were out on some desolate farm road, and I was freaking out because now I really was going to be late for school. He was driving through mud puddles and they were all just messing around, saying "you didn't think we were really going to school did you?" And suddenly I was on campus back in high school, except I didn't recognize anyone. I didn't know what time it was. First period? How late was I? Did I even still go to that school? Couldn't remember what class I had first period. Spanish? PE? I was digging though my backpack trying to find my schedule. And then I woke up.

I have had the back-in-school dream before, where I either can't remember what class I'm supposed to be in, or can't find my classroom. The setting can be either high school or college.

I am guessing this is related to stressing out about the upcoming deadline. I think some people (hmm, perhaps people I am related to...) fail to get that this is a big deal, cannot be late type of thing.

I'll be working more tonight, there will be a lot of midnight oil burning in the near future.
