these dreams

guess my dreams are trying to tell me something.  to wit:

last night i dreamt that hubby and i went on vacation.  we were in a swimming pool in a ritzy hotel, and we got out to get drinks.  we waited and waited for those drinks (i really wanted a pina colada) and the longer we waited, more people got served, but not us.  it made me mad.

then i dreamt that it was the end of vacation, and i didn't get to swim becos i kept waiting for that drink.

then i dreamt that we caught a big black rat in the back porch of my old house, and i chased it with a baseball bat, trying to kill it.

here's what it all means:

...To dream that you are on vacation, indicates that you need a break to recharge your energies and revitalize yourself. You need to break out of your daily routine and do something different.  Alternatively, dreaming of a vacation represents your achievements. You are giving yourself a pat on the back and are deserving of a reward for your hard work. 

To dream that you are having a bad or awful vacation, suggests that you are not able to escape from the daily responsibilities of your waking life.  You are having difficulties coping with life's problems and issues.

wow.  guess i really do need a break.  and for taking care of 3 sick kids over the past 2 weeks without getting sick myself - yeah, i definitely deserve something for that achievement (a vacation would be nice!)

To dream that you are having a bad or awful vacation, suggests that you are not able to escape from the daily responsibilities of your waking life.  You are having difficulties coping with life's problems and issues.
considering i was disappointed that the vacation was over so quickly, this really fits too.

To see a swimming pool in your dream, symbolizes relaxation, calmness, luxury and ease. You need to take a break. Alternatively, a swimming pool suggests that you need to acknowledge and understand your feelings. It is time to dive in and deal with those emotions. You need to cleanse yourself and wash away those past hurts.
yep.  true that.

To dream that you are swimming, suggests that you are exploring aspects of your unconscious mind and emotions. The dream may be a sign that you are seeking some sort of emotional support. It is a common dream image for people going through therapy.
again, true.

To dream that you are enjoying alcohol in moderation, denotes contentment and satisfaction in the decisions that you have made. Success is within your grasp. The dream may also be a metaphor for "spirits" and your need for spiritual enrichment.
well, i didn't get my pina colada, and others got served before me, but this makes sense.

To see a rat in your dream, signifies feelings of doubts, greed, guilt, unworthiness and envy. You are keeping something to yourself that is eating you up inside. Or you have done something that you are not proud of. Alternatively, a rat denotes repulsion, decay, dirtiness, and even death. The dream may also be a pun on someone who is a rat. Are you feeling betrayed?

In particular, to see a black rat, represents deceit and covert activities. 
now this is getting scary.

To see or hold a baseball bat in your dream, represents your motivating and driving forces.  The dream may also be a pun on an "old bat" or old woman. Alternatively the baseball may be a phallic symbol and thus have sexual connotations. 
heh.  i certainly feel like an "old bat" lately.

To dream that you kill someone, indicates that you are on the verge of losing your temper and self-control.  Consider the person you have killed and ask yourself if you feel any rage towards him or her in your waking life. Your dream may be expressing some hidden anger. Alternatively, you may be trying to kill an aspect of yourself that is represented by the person killed. Identify the characteristics of this person and ask yourself which of these qualities you are trying to put an end to.
i don't think i killed the rat (maybe my subconscious was thinking of the bat i killed a couple weeks ago).

To dream that you have been killed, suggests that your actions are disconnected from your emotions and conscience. The dream refers to drastic changes that you are trying to make. There is a characteristic that you want to get rid of or a habit that you want to end within yourself. Killing represents the killing off of the old parts and old habits. Alternatively, the dream represents feelings of being let down or betrayed by someone in your waking life. You are feeling overwhelmed, shocked and disappointed.
yeah, this makes sense too.

geez.  even in my unconscious state, i get no peace.

ETA i get my dream information from this awesome dream dictionary site.
