It's so surreal to think we're in 2023 already; it barely felt like we had a full year for 2020, let alone all the years that followed. I hope everyone had a fabulous 2022, and here's to a magical 2023! As other members inside of AMBSDR are dubbing it, this year is "twenty-twenty-free!"

I didn't want to wake up on Monday morning, feeling absolutely exhausted. Honestly, it's due to being around so many people all day on Christmas and the fact that my brother has his huge, hyperactive dog over--way too draining. My dream recall was veiled in a thick haze, so I had no idea what transpired. It was more of the same on Tuesday. I ended up falling back asleep due to being so tired and then couldn't recall what occurred in the dream realm upon waking.
A lot seemed to happen in my dreams Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. The first thing I could remember was going to the church that's down the street from my house. I thought I was with one of my brothers, but there was also a kid with us that seemed to be a younger kid version of said brother, so I'm not entirely sure. Weird things were happening by the church. The grown up version of my brother wanted to go across this "bridge" that ended up kind of caving in on itself when we started walking across. The thing was, it seemed more like a trap that was designed to "open up" and get people to fall into some kind of pit like place. We ended up grabbing onto the sides and climbing out. There was some other being that was around; it appeared to be human based off physical appearances, but something was off about them. This being started making sort of creepy comments and saying stuff about how we shouldn't be there. As they were making ominous warnings and such, their eyes started glowing, this strange glow-like substance could be seen in their mouth. They weren't human, that's for sure. I think we ended up leaving, but details got fuzzy.
There was also something about the characters from Ed, Edd, and Eddy. The boys were hanging around outside, and Sara was trying to get them in trouble with her mom. They ended up going inside of the house to reason with her, and weird things started going on with their basement. It seemed like a portal to another dimension, giving off some none-too-pleasant vibes and energies. More probably happened, but other details were hazy. I think it was this point that I woke up and dealt with intense energies. The best way I can think of describing it is like the spiritual pressure in Bleach. It was not a pleasant energy, and it felt like it wanted to crush me with negativity. Ironically enough, I found it kind of funny and sent warmth and love back. The energy doubled-down, trying to either break me or scare me, neither of which worked. After a couple of minutes, it gave up defeated. I ended up going back to sleep. Then there was something about babysitting the boys I usually watch. There was something about a shower and travel, but I couldn't remember what exactly happened upon waking. More could have happened, but that's all I could remember.
My dream recall was pretty hazy when I woke up Thursday morning, and I was quite tempted to go back to sleep. There was something about one of my brothers, but I had no idea what. There was also something about the Simpsons. It sort of seemed like they moved. Marge had promised to find some costume for Bart during the day (I guess while he was at school), but she completely forgot, severely disappointing Bart. She tried to find it last minute, searching the house, but she only seemed to find things like old, moldy pizza. More might have happened, but I couldn't remember anything else upon waking.
My dream recall was veiled in a thick haze when I woke up Friday morning; I was so tempted to go back to sleep because I felt rather exhausted. I woke up Saturday morning not wanting to wake up and ended up unintentionally falling back asleep. I just felt so exhausted. My dream recall was shrouded in a fog, making it really difficult to remember any specific details.
It was rough getting up this morning; I was so sleepy and had no motivation to get up. I was half asleep for a while and was pretty tempted to spend a lot of the day sleeping. My dream recall was a bit hazy, but I remembered a lot more than the previous days. From what I could remember, my dream started off at my former middle school. I was a student there again and happened to be wandering the halls. It seemed to be after school with many of the students leaving. I happened to meet Corliss in the halls, and she went into an empty bathroom. Apparently, it was the men's bathroom, as a male student was going to go into the bathroom but then got intimidated/uneasy when he saw Corliss inside. Corliss invited him inside because apparently she was upset that they had cleaned the bathroom; she encouraged him to come inside and start doing exercises like jumping jacks to work up a sweat because the bathroom was missing male musk? I don't know. April showed up and started encouraging boys to do the same; I was just confused by it all. A teacher showed up, telling us to go home.
I think more happened, but the next thing I could remember was being at home. My mom came up to me and demanded that over the weekend or the following week that I take my youngest brother out to like Lake of the Ozarks or Branson to pick up his car. I declined, telling her she was being ridiculous and that I didn't want to drive over 3 hours both ways for that. She started screaming at me and berating me, insistent that I needed to do it because apparently she couldn't, so it fell on me. I wasn't letting her walk all over me and push me around, remaining steadfast in my answer because I didn't want to spend all that time driving my brother and his dog. This royally ticked my mom off, and she started having this screaming fit. I pointed out to her that I'd be more likely to kill the pair if I was forced to be in such a small, confined space with them because they're so rude, inconsiderate, and completely disrespect boundaries. I was fed up with all of their BS and informed her that I was going to be late for school. I looked at the time and tried to figure out when school started again. I was supposed to be driving my other siblings to the high school and ended up searching online when school started. In the dream it was at 7:55, and it had been 7:57. I let my mom know that we were now late due to her ridiculous antics and tried to find my other siblings so we could leave. More might have happened, but that's all I could remember upon waking.
The boys were super excited for winter break, taking advantage of the school-free days and sleeping in. They enjoyed discussing anime, games, Disney, The Owl House, and theories; they had me watch many clips of Hooty's best moments (lol). They had a great holiday and even got to hang out with friends. It was a relaxing week of babysitting.
Tsuki was rather miffed that my brother and his dog, Yogi, were over this week (and I can't say I blame her--they're a lot to put up with, and they're quite chaotic). She enjoyed playing with the new interactive mouse toy I bought her and enjoyed snuggling with me. Tsuki also tried to go outside a few times, in hopes of playing in snow.
