Things never slow down

Just when I think things might settle down.....NOPE. One of my employees wife had her baby last Thursday so I kept their 20 month old until they got out of the hospital on Sunday. We had a blast with him. Daniel enjoyed having somone to follow him around and play with him. I could not get out of his sight though. We went to an ethnic festival for lunch and I made the mistake of going to the bathroom without him. I could hear his screams all the way in the bathroom.

The Hamburg area is doing a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They got my contact info through the BBB I believe. Either that or someone put my name in to be "arrested." I will be going to jail on Oct 28th at 2pm for an hour. The goal is for each person to raise $2000 in order to send 2 kids to camp as well as provide them with wheelchairs and flu shots. There is a website that you can donate through that I will post as soon as I recieve it. Maybe ya'll could help me out with my bail? Pretty please? They are going to send a limo to "arrest" me and then take me to Carinos restaurant where I will be fed their version of bread and water. After my hour is up the limo will take me back to the office. I wonder if it will have a stocked mini bar? LOL

Egg Drop Soup Recipe

So I found a recipe while lurking around the web yesterday for egg drop soup. I love this soup so I decided to try it out. I thought it turned out pretty yummy. I doubled the recipe so there was enough for my ravenous husband.

2 cans chicken broth or 4 cups of homemade or made with bouillion
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 tbs chopped chives
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch

If you are using bouillion boil the water and throw in the cubes. If not place the broth in a pot over medium high heat. Reserve 3/4 cups of broth to be used later. Bring broth to a rolling boil. While broth is heating scramble 2 eggs plus the 1 egg yolk. Once broth is boiling add the chives and ginger and mix well. Slowly let egg drip from fork into boiling broth. Egg should cook instantly. Continue in small amounts until all the egg is used. Serve hot.

If you can find wonton noodles you can fry up some of them to serve with it. I could not find any yesterday but it was yummy without them.

I'm baaaaack

Miss me? Yeah didn't think so lol.

It has been a rough couple of months for me. Depression has been kicking my ass with a vengance. I finally went to the doctor a little over a month ago and they put me on celexa. Once I got over the side effects it has helped quite a bit. I still was not sleeping though so when I went back last week they also put me on tropazine which is another depression med but it is also used to treat insomnia. I have been taking it for a few days and I feel almost like my old self again. I am sleeping better. I have more energy. I actually want to do things again. Ok maybe not the laundry that is piled up in my bedroom, but FUN things lol.

The tropazine is giving me some CRAAAAZY dreams though. Last night the batmobile was on my parents property in AL and was hunting down all these military guys. We were all running around hiding from the batmobile because no one knew who it was going to attack next. The weird thing is my subconcious is pulling people that I went to high school with that were several years older than me and using them in my dreams. The first night I took the medicine I dreamed that my mom and I were in FL except we were staying in this house on this teeny tiny strip of land. One side of the land was the ocean and on the other side was a salt water marsh. We had to leave the house because a hurricane was coming and it was pushing the waves up over the house and the land. We were trying to get to the mainland when a gust of wind pushed me into the marsh. Mom started screaming at me because there was an alligator in the water with me. I started frantically swimming and instead of getting on the land I dove UNDER it. It was like a strip of land just floating on the water. The alligator was just about to get me! Then my husband woke me up because evidently I was thrashing around and making weird noises lol. (You try and escape from an alligator and see what kind of noises YOU make!)

See am I screwed up in the head or what?! I think it is all the drama in my family in AL trying to work it's way out in my dreams. Oh well I always knew I was crazy!
