Help me not be mortified

I did an embarrassing thing yesterday at work.

I called another office to get some information (hours of their office), and was totally taken aback when the woman who answered the phone was someone that my project team had recently had a falling out with (about the project for which I was calling to get information). She asked a question that would lead to me having to give my name (she did not straight up ask for my name) and I was so unprepared for it be her on the phone that I lied and said "I am asking for a friend."
I have no idea if she recognized my voice although I suspect she did, and she definitely could have looked up my phone number to see if it was me. The details of the whole situation are not terribly important to the question, other than that I am mortified that I did this. I am just embarrassed and feel unprofessional and silly.
I really don't think apologizing to her will make me feel better, especially because I have no idea if she even recognized my voice. How can I make myself forget about this faux pas and stop ruminating on it?
