So, this morning I wake up from a dream...kind of a nightmare really. You know, that dream that has you jumping out of bed before your eyes are even open, ripping the covers off the mattress, looking for creepy, crawly, critters?

Yep, it was one of those.

The Dream:
I'm on a friend's front porch, which is weird because their house was on the edge of a really high cliff (which it isn't in reality) with a beautiful view. I'm swinging on a playground swing on the porch, when all of a sudden I notice a large spider climbing up the side of the house.

That kind of freaks me out. Then my husband warns me there's a huge, bright spider spinning a web directly behind me. Now I'm really freaked out. I don't know if it's gonna bite me or I'm gonna get stuck in this web.

Remember, I did mention this a dream.

So, I check dream interpretation dictionaries. Guess what? Spiders are good things! A spider is symbolic of feminine power. Right on. They're also a sign of creativity due to their intricate webs they weave.

Seeing a spider climb a wall means one will achieve one's goals in the near future. See a spider spinning a web means one will be rewarded for one's hard work.

Whoo hooo...

Hold on. There's negative too. Spiders represent a sticky or entangled situation. Someone or something is sucking the life right out of you.

Hmmm, could be either direction I suppose. Book just came out. Working hard to promote and am getting great feedback. That's positive. Day job is very busy and I'm fighting for writing time. That's a frustrating situation.

Then again, it could just be the fact my kitten has become my 4:00 a.m. alarm clock, batting at my hair and tickling my face with her whiskers!

I'll "stick" with the positive spider outlook...great things are on the horizon. Oh, and my kitten might end up sleeping in the garage!  =D
