In this dream I don't know how or why, but I decided to get a job working working at Sonic. For those of you unfamiliar, it's a drive in food place. Only thing is, my job there was sorting fabric, or clothing of some sort. It was my job to discern the best kinds that would go where, and I was trained extensively. It seemed like a really important job, but it was weird, because it nothing to do with fast food whatsoever.
I went home at the end of the day, and forgot to look or remember when my next shift was. I ended up going on this long journey to I don't even know where with my husband and his dad (I think it was) into this place that held some significance to their past. They kept going further and further into the woods and I feared that we would take too long and I wouldn't make it back in time for me to get to work. My anxiety kept growing with each step.
Somehow we ended up back into town and I needed to get groceries for my family. I had to go to an unfamiliar store because it was closer to me than the usual one and I was in a hurry. Things were in unusual places and I had a hard time finding anything. Things like deodorant was in the refrigerated sections. Nothing made sense in this store. I finally made my way up to the front and I ran into my husband's aunt. We both were looking at this really pretty white couch. It was on clearance sale for like $69 or something like that. A really good deal. I said that I couldn't buy it, because it was white and it would be destroyed in my home. She went on to explain all the ways I could clean it and whatnot, and it really annoyed me, because she was being holier than though in her approach to me life, which she knows nothing about. I finally got away from her.
I did get back to work to try to see my schedule, but I did not get a chance to see it. I don't recall if I ever got to go back to work. I don't think so.
There are two themes that are common here. One is that in many of my dreams I am either looking for work, or starting a new job, but cannot remember my schedule. I can't ever seem to find it, or see it. Either, I can't get into the room it's in, or I am inconvenienced at every turn and can't ever get to it.
Then, there is the odd store. Almost all of my dreams have a store in them, mostly grocery stores, but not all. In many I have a regular store, and a dark, or shadow store. I like going to my regular store, but sometimes I have to travel outside of my norm to the twin store that I am unfamiliar with. It's the same store, but different. It is usually poorer, less quality, things like that.
