DREAM: Grandmother's House
I think I was with Stan and my mom and we were visiting my grandmother in Racine (my grandmother has been dead since 1986 and hasn't lived in Racine since 1982 and I hadn't visited her there since 1980). The house IRL was/is a 1 1/2 story bungalow circa 1910, but in the dream it was a 2 story Victorian, sort of like a cross between my grandmother's bungalow, our own house and the old converted townhouse/duplex Stan and I lived in in Fort Collins.. I seem to have the same house reoccur in my dreams often, as if the props department in dreamland doesn't have a large budget. (Now I bet that's a theory for reoccurring dreams you haven't heard before). In the dream, my grandmother had bedrooms on the 2nd story (IRL, the upstairs was just used for storage and was basically unfinished) but we were helping her move them into the downstairs bedrooms. Also, there was a bathroom on the 2nd floor that didn't exist IRL. Stan and I were sitting in the living room where a bunch of futons were and we were wondering if we should go to bed. My mom was in the 1st floor bathroom and my grandmother had to use the bathroom, so she ran upstairs (I guess it couldn't wait) and I heard a loud noise like she stumbled or fell or something. I didn't know what to do, whether I should leave her alone or go look to see what the matter was.
