I know I was trying to phone my Mom and there was no getting through. I think there was even a way to call the woman at the door of the building or an operator or something, but that person couldn't help me reach her. I am even feeling badly in the dream because my mom is elderly and I'm thinking what if she's dead or something and I haven't visited her enough. (My mom passed away in 04)
I go to her apartment. She's there. I am so happy. My brother walks in too. He has a present for her, that Karen bought and wants to hide it so she gets a surprise when she finds it herself. It's a set of sheets.
He picks a place too high up in the closet. She would never look up that high! So I take it down from there, hurrying because she is soon going to walk out from her dressing area into her bedroom.
Knowing she is going to get into bed at some point, and anyways her bed is not made yet, I very quickly hide the sheets under her pillow! She comes back into the room JUST as I do it. She finds them. The sheets are just gorgeous. Expensive. And the color is a deep burgundy and blue which is EXACTLY the same as the color of her room. She loves them.
I feel something that Murray doesn't say that we all chipped in for them. Why should I have expected that? I didn't chip in! But maybe I felt that way because he didn't give me any credit for the smart place I thought to hide them. So I didn't feel appreciated for my effort. I didn't feel a part of what had happened, and he could have easily included me if he would have called attention to the fact that it was me who hid them.
