I don’t know why I have such weird dreams all the time. I like to think that I have an overactive imagination, or maybe someone’s trying to steal my secrets, so my brain is trying to protect itself Inception-style. Either way, when I dream my crazy dreams, I don’t get a restful sleep. Then I end up exhausted in the morning, and really groggy at work.
I remembered more of my dream this morning. Now it’s all kind of hazy, but the gist was that I was at a mall with Paul, and I think some of his friends. Somehow, a fight started and I remember Paul getting involved and me seeing him get punched in the stomach. When I woke up, I felt like someone socked me, not in a painful way, but that anxiety, sick-to-your-stomach feeling. Not good. I also managed to rip a portion of my sheets. Yikes!
Basically, today’s been kind of blah. It started snowing again in Chicago. Why won’t it just go away? It took me an hour to get home from work, and by that point, I just wanted to crawl in bed. But the little devil in my mind (or angel…it depends on my mood haha!) told me I should get a workout in. After all, I devoured more than a handful of cookies yesterday, plus tons of guac and chips, trail mix and more. So I got my butt on the treadmill and cranked out 3 miles, and then read a bit of Glamour on the treadmill for 20 minutes.
After my workout, I was much happier!
Dinner was delicious, as it always is when my mom cooks. Those Greek women really know what they’re doing 😉
She made chicken stuffed with spinach and feta, and then some quinoa on the side. It was so yummy! Now I’m off to watch the Bulls as I catch up on some blog reading, and then some Snow Queen reading. Love this book! But for everyone who missed the Super Bowl yesterday, here was my favorite commercial by far:
And here’s a song lyric that I love:
“Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
With stars to fill my dream.
I am a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been.” – Led Zeppelin, “Kashmir”
Have any crazy dreams lately? Do you remember them most of the time of forget them? How was your Monday? Is there anything you want to see more of on my blog?
