To see a house in your dream, represents your own soul and self. Specific rooms in the house indicate a specific aspect of your psyche. In general, the attic represents your intellect, the basement represents the unconscious, etc. If the house is empty, then it indicates feelings of insecurity. To dream that you are cleaning your house, signifies your need to clear out your thoughts and getting rid of old ways. You are seeking self-improvement. To dream that you are in the bedroom, signifies aspects of your self that you keep private.
Deeeeeeeeep, huh? They didn't have a dictionary entry for decor or Brady Bunch-esque, what are the odds? But perhaps that has something to do with getting rid of old ways, since I was a child in the 1970s. I need to improve something about myself that is hanging on since childhood. (Don't we all?) I don't know what the friend thing was about...except in my dream, I was annoyed that she saw the potential in something that normally only I would have been sensitive enough to appreciate. (Did I mention that I'm full of myself in my dreams, too?) So, apparently I'm haunted by a deep (and private) need for self-improvement coupled with an insecurity that someone is going to remodel my psyche before I get the chance. Either that, or it was the two very large margaritas I had last night.
