I have a similar dream except it's usually Christmas Eve and it's a couple of minutes before midnight. I realize I haven't done any shopping and I feel so horrible that no one will be getting anything from me. So I start to think: what can I make as gifts? Kind of like a grown up arts and crafts brainstorming session. I usually wake up before I figure that part out.
