I have never dreamed about ER members, but last night I did dream that I was shopping at Walmart while wearing super short cut-offs.

EEEK!

Uh...I assume the "EEEK!" is due to where you were shopping?

I actually stopped dreaming many years ago, ever since I started on a CPAP machine, the dreams have come back almost on a daily basis. Oh to dream again. Guess what I was wearing? .

Remember what my forum name is?

Your name probably got me dreaming again. I was dreaming off and on... Now I'm dreaming every night.

But those dreams are for another forum.

Seems only right that she share with us, having started this thread and all... . Or at least the plot, if not the identity.

I had a weird dream last weekend after previously spending a long session updating some spreadsheet data. I was aware of being kind of inside a spreadsheet and I was attempting to change a particular cell but it wouldn't change and I couldn't get in or out of it. It had an Alice in Wonderland quality.

DW gave me one of those "duh" looks and said, "Obviously you're worrying about retirement." She must be right though "scheming" would be more accurate than "worrying." One of my goals in retirement is not to think much about retirement (as a "chapter" or "stage" per se), just to live it. The dream was a good reminder.

I'd say the odds are 12.87 to one you'll keep running the numbers even if after you retire.

I don't know how anyone ever managed to retire without Excel. Going over and updating my Excel file each morning is a ritual for me at this point.

Step away from the spreadsheet and grab your golf clubs . Looking at the data will not change the numbers but enjoying yourself will change your life !

Yup, I decided to back off the spreadsheet for a while. Waste of time. I had drifted into a weekly look-see, usually on the weekend. The dream did it for me.

Now, about that other dream...

Yeah...I know this is an old thread, but I've been having a lot of dreams about forum members lately.

Maybe it's just the TX heat.
