Do you have them?  I've been having them for a couple of weeks now, but last nights still makes me mad!

My husband and I were living in a house we've lived in before that was WAY out in the country.  In my dream my brother was our son.  I woke up late knowing that I had a very important meeting at school, which was 15 miles away.  My "son" jumps into the shower, which of course takes him forever then he hands me his science midterm which is awful.  (How he had a midterm on the first day of school is beyond me!)  I'm trying to wash my hair with this HUGE bottle of shampoo that he bought for $1 and is supposed to remind you of champagne while signing his midterm.  I finally get mad and tell him I'll just call his teacher - which of course is exactly what he doesn't want.  I  get an outfit together (unironed) and as I'm leaving the house (which his best friend is using a spray gun to paint) I have to borrow the keys for this "piece of cr*p car" - that's how I described it to my husband when I woke up - that didn't even have a full steering wheel because the rest of it had rusted out.  It only went about 5 miles an hour - so slowly that people could walk beside me and talk to me, while all I can think about is "I am so late, I am in so much trouble!"  The alarm went off when I was only about half way to school - and driving through a flea market.  I woke up so mad at my husband for leaving me that car!!

Weird dream, but it's better than last years when I showed up to work naked!  LOL

I've never had the I'm late dream.  Mostly I have the waking up at 4am wondering about my students attacks.
