I went to hot yoga today looking like an octopus wrapped me up in a great, big hug. 🙂
My back was killing me â€“ killing me â€“ so the Husband did some acupuncture and cupping on my back. It went from being a 7 to a 3, and then I went to hot yoga and it went down to a 2! Natural pain relief, yo!
(If you have NO idea what cupping is, check out this post. And yes, people in yoga were probably like, â€œWhat theâ€¦?â€)
I was reminiscing earlier about when the Husband and I first met. See, when I met the Hus, I had never met a boy who: liked to meditate, took all these healthy supplements, talked about God, cried about road kill, did Tai Chiâ€¦ Let me tell you THIS: he didnâ€™t even take antibiotics when sick! I always took antibiotics! Boys that I had dated before were much more traditional â€“ shall we say? And really, so was I! It took some getting used to. The British accent helped. 🙂
When he told me that he wanted us to move from Pennsylvania to Florida to become a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (and I readily agreed because he had actually transferred from Miami to Pittsburgh so I could finish college with my friends). I was like, â€œNow, what exactly is that?â€ :) But once he was in school and could practice on me, I was converted! Itâ€™s amazing how much those little needles and cups help to reduce pain levels. Being married has definitely been an adventure!
Memory trip, over.
Oh wait â€“ how about a cute picture of James on the night we got him? He was one year old!
Now reallyâ€¦ dinner!
A bowl of roasted veggies and a black bean burger all smushed up with ketchup:
Two cornbread muffins:
And a few Christmas cookies! My neighbor brought them over! <3
To bed I goâ€¦ I need to catch some ZZZs.
