Sick and tired

I am sick with a really bad cold. On Saturday, I got a sore throat and then on Sunday, it progressed into sneezing and stuffiness. I thought it was just allergies at first, but confirmed it wasn't with the other symptoms I was experiencing.

I went to work yesterday and left halfway through the day. A co-worker cannot get sick right now and I felt bad that I even came in and exposed her to my germs. So, I stayed home today and am trying to rest as much as possible so I can go back tomorrow.

I've been sleeping with the cats laying on me.

The only thing food I have been craving this week is this Amy's lentil soup. Before I got sick, I stocked up on this soup when I found a big package of cans at Costco for a really good price.

I put shredded cheese and Chobani on top. Oh and avocado is divine with it too. I just wasn't feeling the avocado today.

My one big accomplishment for today was figuring out the source of moths that have found their way into our house. I suspected it was bird seed we had to bring downstairs to the basement (because of a mouse in our garage that eats our seed) and sure enough, a tiny worm I thought I spotted on the bag the other day looked like it was now developing into a moth. Gross. That bag promptly went outside and when I went to the bucket we keep the rest of the bird seed in and opened it up, there were about 10 moths inside. Aaah! Not fun to find when you feel like crap already and don't have much energy to deal with anything. I am just happy I found the source of the problem and I pray we don't have major moth problems in the future, especially in our food. The best blog post I found on moths was this one and it helped me identify the worm on our bird food bag.

Stay healthy! You do not want this cold because it has made me feel pretty miserable for the last couple of days.
