It's been a rough week, we all have a mild but still miserable case of the flu and my son has been up in the night quite a bit. He's getting some molars in at the same time, and that doesn't help us get any more sleep!
I've been doing well otherwise though, and my red eyes have cleared up a bit, even though I'm still sleep deprived. I've had red eyes for 3 years, since embarking on motherhood, so this is a nice change.
I made my weekly clear-out-the-veggie-drawer creamy vegetable soup a few days ago. This time it was heavy on beets, and very red. It's pretty good, though I'm not a big fan of turnips or beets in soup. I woke up yesterday to discover my urine was orange-red in color. I was a bit worried about it, so started looking up possible causes online. Eventually I came across the fact that beets cause red urine, ah-ha! Well, I'm glad I didn't stress too much about it before finding out the cause!
Next time I'm making parsnip soup, that turned out nice last time I made it.
