Nightime Napping

29 Apr

It’s 9P as I’m starting to write this and I just woke up an hour ago from a nap. Was I planning on napping? Hell no. Did it feel good? Hell yes. Will I have trouble going to bed tonight? Another hell yes. But I just feel gooooood right now so bring it on. And there’s only one more day to go! I stayed late at work today due to a problem that should have been fixed a month ago but never was and now that it’s month end, needed to be resolved.

I had greek yogurt soup for breakfast. I put in extra frozen berries and it’s juice along with the greek yogurt and it just got a little too liquidy so I added granola on top for a cereal like effect. I didn’t like it at all and will need to watch my juice next time.

I spent the morning training an associate on our process and had time to go to the library to see if there were any books or movies I wanted to get but found nothing. The library is now closed on Fridays due to budget cuts within the county which just sucks. I used to enjoy walking over there on Friday afternoons when it was slower at work. I didn’t enjoy sketchy homeless man following me around the library with his hands down his pants (I so wish I was making that up).I did get a chance to get on the reserve list for two books I’m looking forward to reading.

Quizno’s was for lunch today b/c I had a coupon for free chips and drink with the purchase of a regular sub. I got the Ranch Turkey and Swiss and had a bag of Baked Lay’s Barbeque Chips. When is someone going to make Baked Salt N Vinegar Chips?? Waiting…..

I walked over to Harris Teeter this afternoon and picked up some spinach, bananas, oranges, kiwis, carrots and Kashi Bars.

Afternoon snack

I didn’t have too busy of a day but was just beat by the time I got home. I took Lincoln for a 20 minute walk and then dinner was served. I had a BIG salad with spinach, red onions, mushrooms, carrots with Ken’s Lite Honey Mustard (which is amazing, it doesn’t taste “lite” at all)

But I had no tomatoes and a salad isn’t a salad in my book if it doesn’t include tomatoes.

I had leftover enchiladas that I made earlier this wk and a serving of Baked Tortilla Scoops

I swear, these get better the longer they sit. Thanks Aztecs for starting the trend. I love how the history says “There does not seem to be any reference to the term “enchilada” that dates back to the Aztecs.” Can you imagine a bunch of archaeologists finding ancient Aztec scripts and they mentioned enchiladas? That thought just amused me.

I got my Fitness magazine in the mail so I have something to read on the bus tomorrow!

And thank you Lord —Pay day is tomorrow! This is a pretty sweet paycheck for me since I had a lot of OT pay and am taking a $100 of that to spend on myself and get some new clothes. Since I have money readily available, I am sure I will find nothing. That’s the way the cookie crumbles.

I found out my friend Shalon who moved away from Charlotte back in February is going to be in town this wknd and that just made my day!! I was supposed to go see her this wknd but have to go into work on Saturday for hopefully a few hours to test a new system that’s launching. Sucks that I have to go in on a Saturday but I am just trying to see $$$$ and remind myself it’s time and a half pay. We are going to have dinner and drinks tomorrow and can’t wait!

Ok so all in all, pretty lame day. Nothing really interesting happened, no fun sightings, funny quips, etc. so apologies. I leave you with the random song of the day stuck in my head.

    Omg I completely forgot that 98 degrees song. The boy I was in love with in 6th grade (I thought) looked like Nick Lachey, so I was obsessed.

    Hooray for payday! My bank balance is very excited as well!

    And I just got an email notice from my library that I’m finally off the reserve list and there’s a copy of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang waiting for me! I just hope I get there in the allowed amount of time…

      I haven’t but will have to google. I’ve finally weaned myself off of all my celebrity gossip sites but sounds saucy!

    Are you an I.T. girl too? You’re lucky you get OT pay! I work weekends and get no OT pay :(. I also love all of Chelsea’s books..she’s hilarious!

      No, I work in finance but we have a number of online and in house systems that are always being upgraded so my boss volunteers to me help! If it includes the OT Pay, I am all about it 🙂

    I like to think that someday I will be the mix between Jen Lancaster & Chelsea Handler…Jen Handler I will call myself or Cheslea Lancaster. Regardless, love both of them!

    Re: the lack of baked potato salt and vinegar options: I KNOW! This infuriates me too. It’s hands down my favorite chip flavor and yet it gets no love from Baked Lays. Have you tried the salt & vinegar popchips? I had high hopes but thought they were just okay. Sigh.

    Enjoy your shopping spree!

    Tiffany, I get those random naps ALL the time! It’s really messing up my sleeping schedule…Last week, I went for a “nap” that turned into a 12-hour sleep. I woke up the next morning drowsy and cranky. lol.
