Ana Veciana-Suarez: Hoping to wake up from unsettling dreams

I don't always remember my dreams, but when I do, they often leave me unsettled. I don't dream of butterflies and roses, of happy frolicking across a meadow. Others may, I suppose, but not me. The dreams that linger after I wake are hardly pastoral. They're about being chased or about being left behind. Their urgency often startles me.


Ex-etiquette: Should ex include her on Halloween Disneyland trip with kids?

Q. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but since I've broken up with the kids' dad, I hate when October rolls around. I've been letting their dad go trick-or-treating with us for the last two years (we altered the parenting plan for that day only), but this year he's taking them to Disneyland over the weekend and I won't see them. I'm so angry! I have included him, but he's not including me! What's good ex-etiquette?
