Not Again

Have you ever had one of those dreams where you wake up and part of what you were dreaming was actually happening in real life? Like the phone was ringing in your dream, and then you wake up and your phone is actually ringing? Or, my personal fav, you really have to go to the bathroom in your dream, then you wake up and it's a miracle you didn't wet the bed? Well, let's just say, last night was the worst version of this that I have ever experienced.

I can't remember exactly what I was dreaming about. I think I may have been at some sort of theme park at some point. Anyway, as the dream progressed, I remember the location I was at started to smell bad. No matter where I went, it just kept getting worse and worse. Suddenly, I woke up. And the smell didn't go away.

Oh. My. Gosh. I almost choked on the thick skunk fumes. That's right, skunk. I thought it was all over back in October when animal control came and took away Pepe. Apparently, Pepe decided to rent out our attic while he's away. I'm pretty sure he rented it out to his uncle Gordo, because whatever was up there last night was large. And noisy. And must have just come back from a tussle with a dog or something, because he stank. It was 3 in the morning and it stank so bad. Camaron slept through all of this of course. He was asleep on his stomach with his face in his pillow -lucky. I just laid there trying to find something to cover my nose with. I started panicing that skunk scent might be dangerous for babies, so I checked on Fox -I'm always my most rational at 3am. The visitor in the attic kept rummaging around and scratching his long nails along the vents. I kept imagining his little punk face peeking through the vent in our bedroom and smirking at me. Oh, he made me so mad.

By some miracle, I eventually fell back asleep. When I awoke this morning, the house only had a tiny tinge of skunk scent, thank goodness. Cam called up maintenance to come by and set up a trap again. Apparently, it's skunk season, because they ran out of traps yesterday, so we probably won't have one until tomorrow. 



In the meantime, anyone have any spare febreeze they would like to get rid of?
Scented candles?
Skunk repellent?

  1. Oh no! Nightmare. And yeah I wake up basically once a week and realize the annoying music in my dream was my actual alarm.
