14 Hours

Let's just say that 2 Tylenol PM are amazing!! I haven't slept well this week at all. Yesterday I was up from 3:30am-6:30am, decided to get out of bed and blog/surf, went back to sleep from 6:30-7:30 and was back up for the rest of the day. That was one of many sleepless nights this week. SO, I decided I couldn't do that again. Last night at 6:00 I took the 2 lovely pills and was asleep by 7:30(after booking a trip to Chicago!!!---more details later). 14 hours later, I'm finally awake! I was so tired last night that I fell asleep in my makeup-yuck!

On an unrelated note, I made VERY easy corn chowder for dinner last night and it was really good and quick (15 mintues, max)! I found the recipe from my favorite magazine/site, Real Simple.

Corn Chowder

4 slices Oscar Meyer Ready to Serve Bacon

1 10 3/4-ounce can Campbell's Classics Cream of Potato soup

1 cup low-fat or whole milk

1 11-ounce can Green Giant Corn Niblets

Oyster crackers

Heat the bacon for 20 to 40 seconds in the microwave; set aside. Pour the cream of potato soup into a sauce-pan. Add the milk and corn. Break up the cooked bacon into small pieces, then stir it into the sauce-pan. Heat for 5 minutes or until the soup reaches a simmer. Serve with the oyster crackers.
Yield: 2 servings

I served it with a side salad and chocolate cupcake! I didn't serve it with oyster crackers, but I'm sure that's good, too.
