Tisha B'Av

Not one of my favorite holidays, I'll admit. Fasting for around 25 hours? I don't fast well on even short fasts, and this one is killer. True, you should be sitting in shul, or wherever, and thinking of all the horrible things that have happened to the Jewish people throughout history. However, I can't usually get out of my own misery long enough to do much commiserating. Anyways, hope that everyone has an easy fast!

Yeah it's not the easiest fast!
For it's more of a change or start point though. Many things changed in my life around these days, and usually these very better changes.

Hopefully this fast will be easier for you together with your hubby!

Was actually not so bad.
I stuffed myself so much I've barely waddled to shul.
