Colds and "The Round Ones"

Maybe it's the transition to a place with a greater density of people...maybe it's the damp-ness...I don't know! But I'm sick again, ugh! And so soon, I just got over the nasty thing going around. Congestion, headache, tired-ness, it's all back. Yech.

The weird thing about colds is that I get VERY hungry. After an impromptu three hour nap and a skipped class, I stumbled into the kitchen for some homemade chicken noodle soup that I had made a few days ago. HM chicken stock, brown-rice fusilli, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic simmered together, with an addition of creamed coconut for a little flavor and fat. Heeeeaaven!

On a happier note, my parents came into town for my sister's soccer tournament last weekend. We hadn't seen them since we moved and it was so fun to show them our apartment and the downtown area. We ate dinner at McMenamin's Hotel Oregon in McMinnville on Saturday night, the whole soccer team was there too, so naturally the wait was long. Andy suggested we pass the time by playing pool - quite a spectacle! At one point, my mom said, "Are we going for the round ones?" 'Nuf said! Love ya mom!
