Okay, I guess sometimes dreams are useful

We bought the kids a set of those "car dvd" players so that we could drive to CA for my brother's wedding and not lose our minds.

Well, they love them. So much.

But last week, Lily's stopped working. We told her, "that's what you get for kicking it so much!" because she does kick it too much. She has some rage issues.

Then a few nights ago, I dreamed that if I messed with the voltage input, I might be able to get it to work again. When I woke up, I said, "yeah, whatever. I don't even know what that MEANS!"

But when Lily was kinda sad about her little DVD player, I felt so bad that I thought, "maybe I can try to figure it out..."

So I messed with the voltage. I figured out how to vary the voltage input. And LO AND BEHOLD, the DVD player WORKED again!

Sam was so happy he giggled and said, "Oh, Mommy. You're so FIXABLE."

"Heh." I thought. "I wish."

I can sometimes go to bed thinking about something and then have a solution in the morning, but never a dream about something I didn't understand and have it work like that! That is awesome!

I learned how to french braid in a dream. I would always try to french braid when I was younger and couldn't get it. I dreamed I was french braiding, and woke up the next morning and could do it!

I also learned some new german words in a dream.
