Ok, not really but I did have a dream last night that I was. I know what you're thinking, Ohio?? I was thinking the same thing. I mean seriously, Ohio is not even on my state radar. I have no idea where that came from. I have to admit that I wasn't sure where it was until I looked at a map. For those of you who aren't sure either, it is nestled nicely between Indiana, West Virgina and Pennsylvania. Who knew?
So in my dream, I was pregnant (which isn't even possible since I elected to have the baby factory closed two years ago)and I was also in the army reserves (as if). I got a letter from the reserves telling me that I had to move to Ohio. I was very upset and kept asking my friends if they could do this. "What about my job?" I asked them, "I've been at the same company for 13 years, how can they make me quit? It's the reserves, why are they making me move?" My friends just kept saying "you have to go, you can't fight this". Off I went, one of my friends and her boyfriend came with me to help me settle in. So there I was in some strange house in Ohio still questioning my friends about the whole situation and they just kept telling me that "there is nothing you can do". Then I woke up.
I did notice that Sharon was not in my dream, which I found strange. But if she were there, I know what she would have said:
"First off, why are you pregnant? HOW are you pregnant?"
"Second, YOU in the military? Seriously? No, really?? Wake up girl"
"Third, even if you were in the military, it's the reserves why would they make you move?"
I think Sharon was not there because she is the voice of reason in my life, the one who says it like it is - who wouldn't let me accept defeat on any level. She's that friend I can always count on. She's my go-to person when I sometimes need someone to make sense of the chaos that is my life. You know, the person who when you're in the throws of hysteria, slaps you across the face and says "snap-out of it". That's Sharon.
So no, I'm not really moving to Ohio. It was just a dream. Besides, Sharon would have talked me out of moving anyway.
