Today was the definition of dreary. One of those days where you just don’t want to get out of bed. Despite having two cups of coffee, I just couldn’t wake up and desperately wanted to take a lunchtime nap in my car. Instead, I attempted to go to Target. I say attempted because when I got there, it started pouring and I didn’t want to get out of my car. So I just sat there for 40 minutes.
(It wasn’t that dark out; there is some sort of Instagram filter on the picture). While I was sitting in my car, I had this great idea. What if there were napping stores? Like places where you could go during your lunch break or whenever and pay a small fee to take a nap? I don’t know if it would be like pods or beds or what, but I’d pay like $5 to take a 30 minute nap! Someone needs to invent this. Please.
The afternoon dragged on and by the time work was over, I was still pretty tired but made myself go to the gym, where I did a 3-mile interval run as part of the boot camp. I actually felt much better after running and had more energy than I’d had all day.
Though it was rainy and gross out, it was hot and steamy and a typical rainy night comfort meal like soup wouldn’t do. Instead, I made salad. For some reason, Target has really decent frozen shrimp. Much better than Kroger or Publix. I bought some this past weekend, knowing that I wanted to make Celery, Artichoke, Hearts of Palm and Shrimp Salad. I’ve had this cookbook forever and I think this is actually the only thing that I’ve ever made from it, though I’ve made it several times.
And now, I can finally go to sleep.
