Last night, after I got the girls off to bed, I suddenly found myself freezing cold. I turned up the heater and put on a light sweatshirt. I thought I would head off to bed as well but that didn’t happen. What I thought was going to be an early night for me ended up being a long drawn out sleepless extravaganza. I found myself wide awake until well after midnight. Ugh. And then I got a craving for chocolate. Ugh again. So, out of boredom and a huge desire not to obsess about chocolate all night long, I indulged in the smallest amount of chocolate possible. A chocolate sucker. I didn’t finish a quarter of it and it did the trick! Craving gone. I need to remember this one! Anyway, a little while later I finally got tired enough asleep. Yay!
Flash forward to this morning.
I woke up at 5 a.m. but decided to push my run off until later because it was raining pretty hard. After I dropped the girls off at school I quickly ran into the house, changed my clothes and started to head out the door. I realized I might get a little chilly so I threw back on the light sweatshirt that I had on last night and then left for my run.
Now I’m not sure if I was a whole lot more tired than I thought I was last night but about 3 miles into my run I noticed something. I had chocolate smeared all over the front of my sweatshirt. HUH?!?!
OK, first. How did I not notice it earlier? And second, how did it get there?!?! All I had was a quarter of a chocolate sucker at most! And it looked like at least that much was on my sweatshirt! It made me question my whole night. How many suckers did I actually have?!?! Did I DROOL while eating my fragment of a sucker?!?! And good Lordy, if I did, how did I not know THAT ONE?!? I’ll be honest folks, I’m baffled about this one. Utterly.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t experience an insomnia-driven chocolate stupor!!!
