I grew up 20 miles from South Beach. Yes, the South Beach. And yet I only went to the beach about three or four times a year, usually when I went to visit my grandparents in north Florida.
Why? Because when you live next to a beach, you take it for granted and never go. Now I live in Charlotte and would love to simply stick my toes in the wet sand. Hindsight is 20 / 20.
Being married to an acupuncturist is kind of like living next to the beach. People always say, “Oh, you must get acupuncture all the time!” but the truth is that I hardly ever ask to be treated by the Husband. I guess I take it for granted, too.
Anyway, every time I mention that I’m having trouble sleeping, people say, “You should try acupuncture for insomnia,” and I finally did. The Husband gave me a treatment right before bed, and I slept like a rock. Best night’s sleep in weeks. Truly. He said I’ll see the most benefits if we do it every day or every other day for a week. After last night, you don’t have to tell me twice. (Here’s my acupuncture 101 post if you want to know more about it!)
2/3 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk

I HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY THAT I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELFFFFF!
