Mama Deb

Yom Kippur

This was not the way I'd planned today. I was going to make dinner early, go out for a mani-pedi, get some pizza maybe. Drink a lot of water. Think about the next day and the emotions it would bring.

I was ill yesterday, starting in the afternoon - a low fever (I'm still running a tad hot for me), diarrhea, nausea. And drinking water only made it all worse. I think I caught some sort of virus.

Today, other than the fever, I seem to be much better. I have actual appetite, I'm taking pains to be hydrated and I think that I've finally eaten enough that I'll be fine tomorrow. I'll take things as they come, of course and I'm not ruling out drinking this time around, although I hope to avoid it.

But I'm so worried about the fast that I'm not thinking about anything else.

But for the rest of you - those of you who are fasting, may it be easy, and may those who observe day truly repent.

If I have offended any of you during the past year, please forgive me.
