I find myself busy in the dream playing with my dogs and talking to friends. I realize it is my bedtime and I need to retire to my bed yet I still have so much yet to accomplish. I sit on my bed and before I can blink I am fast asleep. The next thing I remember is waking up again in the dream. (This is the first time I can ever remember falling asleep in a dream and waking up again within the dream.) Upon waking I realize I’ve been asleep for 2 days which has caused me to miss work and not report in. I am concerned I will be disciplined for not reporting in to work. Yet those around me are not displaying any concern at all. I feel refreshed and joyful. A thought pops in my mind, “Who cares if I miss work!”
I turn my focus to the many projects I have left to complete. My two dogs are now Koi fish and I realize they need to be placed in an aquarium. I will need a large one because they are growing quickly. As it is just my luck there are a few aquariums stacked up in the corner which do not appear to be in use. The aquariums don’t belong to me but I who would refuse to offer up this space so that the Koi can swim joyous and free. I place them in the largest tank I can find and fill it with water. Once filled with water, I notice there was a school of smaller fish who resided in the tank before I placed my fish in there. Both sets of fish my large Koi and the small fish are huddled in their respective corners fearful of one another. I consider a new living arrangement for the fish. Maybe I can utilize the smaller aquariums and distribute the fish to an appropriate tanks. Some larger Koi may be placed temporarily in a smaller tank in solitude while I find other arrangements. Or I can move the smaller fish as a group to a smaller community tank. The smaller fish were living in a very large tank with very little water prefiously. I think this 2nd option is a suitable substitute for them although I feel I will be evicting them from their original home. I would love for them to simply not fear each other and cohabitate in the large tank as a family.
