    I went to bed last night before my wife did, at sometime after 1:00 am. I woke up thinking that I had heard a loud noise from downstairs. I got up to make sure she was all right, but as I left the bedroom, on my way to the stairs, I encountered a very large piece of machinery that would never have fit there.

    I realized then that I was still in bed, and that I had been dreaming. I was awake then, or believed that I was awake. I could see the window in front of me, and feel Ella, our cat, still lying between my legs where she likes to sleep, keeping me from turning over.

    I couldn't hear anything from downstairs, and my wife still wasn't in bed. Remembering the noise, I got up to make sure she was okay. When I walked out of our bedroom, I found myself in the library of the high school that I had graduated from nearly fifty years ago.

    That woke me up, as I realized that it was just a dream. Again, I was still in bed, and there were the window and Ella. Determined to check on my wife, I got up but, as I approached the door to the bedroom, I found that I couldn't move my feet.

    Then I realized that I couldn't walk because I was still lying in bed, and that I had been dreaming. Listening carefully, I could hear Michelle's radio or television downstairs. But I thought I could also hear her talking to someone. That was odd because, by then, it was at least 3:00 in the morning.

    I got up to find that I was in some building that I didn't even recognize, and I seemed to be in a basement, as the stairs led up.

    Of course, I was still sleeping. This went on for at least ten cycles, although most of them are a blur to me now. Each time, I thought that I was awake, but each time I was still lying in bed sleeping, and Ella wasn't even disturbed by any of it.

    I did wake up when Michelle finally came to bed because I told her about my dreams. There had been no noise, she said; nor had she been talking to anyone. Thank God, because I certainly wasn't going to be of any help.

    Hate those type of dreams where you think you're not sleeping. Only get them on occasion though.

    Yours was quite long @Ken Anderson. :)

    I have some weird dreams sometimes. I know they are weird while I'm dreaming them but when I wake up, I can't remember what they were about. Weird, huh?

    Yes I've had those dreams quite often and they scare me more when I wake up because of the ''what if'' factor...but I've certainly never had so many in the space of one night...

    These kind of dreams are confusing. Awake or dreaming, I was confused by them.

    Sounds like you were doing a little time traveling in your dreams @Ken Anderson. :)

    I don't know what they're about, if anything. I have had similar dreams before, where I thought I was awake but actually just dreamed that I had woke up and got up, but I have never had so many of them in a row before.

    Sometimes I have "full length" movies or "books" in my dreams. And when I wake up I think I should have recorded that dream so I could write a book on it. :)
