Happy Thanksgiving! Yes, another major food-fest, which is particularly difficult for us PWDs, I know. But I love the slow four-day weekend, the once-a-year chance to eat sweet potatoes AND cranberries in one meal, and the fall colors. I love the fact that we unpack our old home movies and spend most of the weekend lying on the floor watching hours of my older children as babies crawling around and babbling into the camera. "I was sooo cute!... Mom, did they have turkey when you were little?" I guess you know you're getting older when this is your idea of a good time.
(Not to mention that the hubby and I are also planning a one-night getaway in a coastal mission town, which gives a whole new meaning to the term "family time" :)
Anyhow, there are scores of online "tips for diabetics" on dealing with this holiday, so I won't bore you with a long a list, just a few select links from some favorite sites:
* dLife tips for handling special occasions
* Dr. Bill Quick's hints for holiday planning
* Robyn Webb's "Talking Turkey" article on the ADA site
By the way, nothing helps keep you from stuffing yourself like the gluten-free thing. I can't eat bread or pie anyway, so I stick to turkey and veggies. Works great. Wine is definitely my weakness. Cheers!
