And their off.......

I posted a few of my barbies on ebay a while back and they sold on the second go round. I needed the space for other stuff and I might post more on there in the future.......but that means venturing into the closet and I don't think I am ready for that right now. :) Anyways, I went to the post office today to mail the boxes and a little something to my brother........ok the box was 5 lbs. worth of blankets. Baby ones to be exact for miss Madelyn to use since my girls are too big for them. But holy crap - it cost me more to send a 1.75 lb. to CA & the same to TX than it did the 5 lbs one to within my own state. WTH is up with that?!?!?!?!

Moving on.....It is the start of fall allergy season for me and my oldest two girls. UGH! What did I do today, went to WalMart and bought the generic Claritin. DUMMY! I was on Claritin before and needed a decongestant for all the drainage down my throat. But I don't have a stuffy nose right now. :D Crap now I'm out $14 on meds that I can't use unless I don't want to sleep at night. :( It is of course a 24 hour pill which means that I can't take what I would at night without risking overdose or something like that. So it's a chicken noodle soup night here at our house. Homemade of course - YUM! It smells great right now.......I wonder if the chicken is cooked enough yet. I make it super easy - see below:

Super Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

4 - 5 Chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 12 oz. bag of Egg Yolk Noodle
Some bouillon cubes for flavoring
1 stock pot
1/2 pot of water

Thaw chicken and cut into cubes. Put pot on stove with water in it. Put bouillon cubes, chicken and about slightly over half the bag into the pot. Turn stove on and let sit until boiling, stir often. Let boil for about 5 minutes and soup should be ready to serve.

See easy. Otherwise I'd probably never make it. LOL Oh and this is pretty much my mom's recipe and yeah it's more details than I would have gotten from her. Her response to recipe requests is "I do a little of this, add a little of that and I get this size but eyeball how much I use each time...." really frustrating sometimes let me tell you! But yummy the noodles are super smooshy!

Man, I was saving my Barbies for my future daughter, and now have had 2 boys and the hubby doesn't want anymore kids! Maybe I'll just hope for some nieces to give them to!
