That's funny! I eat a bunch of beets with a meal once and then the next day couldn't figure out why my urine was suddenly so dark. Ha. Took me a few hours to figure it out, too.
It's been gorgeous here for the past couple of days, which is wonderful since it's been nothing but very cold and rainy for quite a while. It's still frosting at night, so it's not really that warm unless you're in the sun, but still. I'm starting to feel the spring creeping in. I was at the fabric store yesterday and all of the fabric I bought was in bright sky blues or yellows and oranges. I think the weather was affecting my fabric choices, which is kind of funny.
I've been doing some major nesting all weekend, too. It feels awesome to get the place looking a little better and get rid of some old crappy things that I've never liked. That was just in the bedroom! I'm starting on sewing my diaper bag today. That's what I was buying all of that bright fabric for so it's extra nice to be looking at sky blue and birds while I'm inside doing this stuff.
I am so ready for my maternity leave to start so I can spend more time doing things like this before the baby comes. It looks like my contract might end at the end of May instead of the end of June so I'll be done with work a few weeks earlier than I had originally thought. While it stinks to miss out that many extra weeks of full pay, I'll be glad to get to spend that time at home relaxing and organizing and all of that before the baby comes.
