Geesh, today was kind of an atrocious day. Nothing in particular happened, but I was so annoyed and frustrated by some of my meetings at work that I couldn’t wait to get to the gym tonight. The funny thing about that is that I was pumped up to get there and then as soon as I stepped foot on the treadmill, I wanted to go to bed. Adrenaline is weird like that.
The one thing that’s saving this day is this gigantic bottle of balsamic reduction that I bought on Sunday at Labriola’s. It’s 27.2 ounces worth of sweet vinegary heaven, and it was surprisingly cheap(ish). Worn out from just everything today, I drizzled some on my risotto and then just poured some straight into my mouth. As a vinegar addict, there are few food-related things that will make me feel better than a balsamic reduction, and this did the trick. (I’m aware of how strange that sounds, but hey, we all have our vices. Mine is vinegar.)
I’m still on-call tonight, but I don’t think anything is going to happen. And if it does, I’ve had enough time to “reset” that I’ll be fine. But man, I just want my bed at this point. It doesn’t help that I’m being forced to attend an 8am meeting tomorrow, AND a 6-7pm meeting… (ugh)
Fingers crossed tomorrow is easier. And if not, I know of one thing that I’m doing that should make my day better, so at least I have something to look forward to. 🙂
