messed up dreams

so for the past two nights, i've had virtually the same dream. i am walking to someplace to shop with a small pet (a specific pet, mind you, not just "a pet"). i must look after this pet, knowing it's going to be a difficult thing to do, thanks to all the distractions/people that the shopping place affords. in the first dream, i realize this is an impossible task, and take the steps to go home, but struggle with the pet while wandering around the shopping area until i wake up. in the second dream, the pet gets away from me, and i spend the rest of the dream chasing the pet down through the shopping area. i eventually found her...i think. tuesday night it was my cat dexter and was in the loop/central west end area. in the second dream it's a friend's daschund (pixel) and she slips into a generic department store...one with multiple floors and a revolving door. there were little dogs everywhere, almost like i was playing "where's pixel" instead of "where's waldo." going theories are: stressing about my new "job" as team lead (which i've had for all of 2 days) and stressing about babies (started reading "eating well while you're expecting at night...2 nights ago ;) both animals certainly are baby-sized, and i ended up carrying dexter around the bulk of the dream the first night. although that might just be because i don't walk cats with a leash. how weird is that?

and the dreaming continues.

this time it was a coworker and her dog. we went together to the place of shopping, but i was put "in charge" of the dog, and ended up carrying it, keeping it quiet and still like in the other dreams while she drove.

i do not know if this coworker even has a dog, but she does not strike me as the sort of woman who would have a little baby-sized dog with her all the time.

it should be noted that this dream's "place of shopping" was washington avenue, which i will be calling home in the next couple of years, and we were driving from a house i moved away from about 15 years ago.

...it just occured to me that i've been calling 2006, "the year of the baby" and it's the chinese year of the dog.

if that's what my dreams' symbolism is coming from, it's quite crafty indeed.
