Homegrown Texan

Born and raised in Texas, I've found the home of my heart and soul in the Pacific Northwest. I love trees, cool weather, and rain. I'm a back to basics kind of gal just trying to raise my family and find a bit of time to slow down in this hectic life.

So last night I thought I noticed blood in my urine.  I thought maybe it was a time-of-month related thing, but that didn't quite seem right.  I figured I'd just let it go and see what happened today.

This morning, same thing.  Now I'm famous for getting UTIs and having no clue that I have them.  Seriously, the only times I've ever known that I had one was when I happened to get a test at the doctor for other reasons and they told me I had one.  So I'm thinking, "great, my kidneys are now disentegrating and my body didn't even bother to clue me in that something was going wrong".

Then it hit me.  I had a big bowl of beetroot and beet green salad for lunch yesterday.  I'm not really that much of a beet fan, but they were in my veggie delivery, and I didn't want to waste them.  Beets tinge your urine red.  Problem solved. :)
