Fall!

I'm so glad Fall is here. It's my favorite time of year. The array of cozy holidays, the new television season, the end of summer--a season that never agreed with me even when I didn't live in the hot place I live now. I was always a school geek, and felt most at home in the school setting, so summer was that time I felt out of sorts, and I was excited for school to start up again. Plus, in summer, there's nothing to do. Your mom kicks you out of the house and says, "Go play!" and you sit on the front porch wishing you could get back to that fantasy planet you were scribbling about in your bedroom.

The only thing I don't like about Fall is it marks the end of the summer fruit season. Peaches and cherries, plums and apricots, grapes and yet more grapes get replaced by apples and oranges. zzzzzzz.

Fall is my favorite as well. I had to work in the summer when I was young. Winter tended to be dreary when it wasn't snowing, and low-grade allergies gave me fits in spring. (Here, any season that doesn't involve temps above 105 is a winner.)

Heck, I like apples. ;o)

I like them, too, but apple season goes on WAY too long for my taste.

Lunch time gets rather dull without the variety.

since i'm confined to liquids and mushy things during work hours, variety is sort of missing

no but since eating anything too hard to digest makes me ill I try to avoid it at work. On the upside an apple can fill me up now

nods. this is that gastric paresis I've been talking about. My stomach doesn't move so the food sits there and makes me nauseated and/or throw up.

GI doc wants me to eat small frequent meals (something as a diabetic I'm supposed to do anyhow) but he wanted me to eat a lot of 'mashed' things that I can't do since mashed foods have the work taken out of them when it comes to digestion (hence him wanted me to eat them) but that means the carbs hit the system in a rush which as a diabetic I cant' handle.

so...diabetic shakes for breakfast and lunch though I've been doing that for over a decade anyhow because the valve btw esophagus and stomach doesn't close either and food runs back up

snort. I know, right? at least it's made me lose 15 pounds. Now to lose the other gabillion pounds and I'll be happy
