Mine was fine, but my wife had a very rough one. She wasn’t feeling well, and asked our Rav what to do. He told her to go home and sleep. She replied that she had to watch our kids, and couldn’t sleep. He told her that R’ Shlomo Zalman has a teshuva about this case, and he wrote that in such a case, the husband should go home from shul and watch the kids so the wife can rest.
Of course, my wife didn’t tell me he said that until I got home from shul after Maariv. Now I know for next year!October 9, 2011 1:41 am at 1:41 am #1007813
My fast was great BH. It never has been a problem for me BH.October 9, 2011 2:09 am at 2:09 am #1007814
Feif Un, I hope your wife has a better fast next year. I was in bed all day but that is what I have to do if I want to make it though the fast.October 9, 2011 2:53 am at 2:53 am #1007815
BH for all of you!! I think hashem Was watching over us!!October 9, 2011 12:39 pm at 12:39 pm #1007816
Fasts are always easy when they end at 5:50 or so.
The davening was fantastic. (For those of you reading the “fast minyanim” thread, no, I didn’t daven at my usual minyan. I walked to a local hesder yeshiva where I’ve enjoyed the most fantastic YK davening every year for the past 4 years.)October 9, 2011 1:32 pm at 1:32 pm #1007817
I didn’t fast b/c of a medical condition, so I had to eat small amounts of yogurt & water every ten minutes (which is not considered eating).October 9, 2011 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm #1007818
Feif Un & Imaofthree – “Mine was fine, but my wife had a very rough one. She wasn’t feeling well, and asked our Rav what to do. He told her to go home and sleep.”
Check out the CR topic called “Fasting Tablets”, where you will find different solutions to help you fast w/o actually breaking it.October 9, 2011 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1007819
fasted great b”h i ate melon before and yes it helped me i’m very thankful that it’s over until the next fast comes along. now the nicest yomtov is coming- succos- i love this yomtov so much it’s so beautiful so special so much to prepare so much to accomplish…… and before you know it or you want it to be over, it’s over. and life and routine go back to normal.chap aroun! enjoy it while it’s here. i wiil.October 9, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #1007820
“i love this yomtov so much”
Wondering if the women preparing a 3-day yom tov menu feel the same wayOctober 9, 2011 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #1007821
ayc: yes, they do.October 9, 2011 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #1007822
AYC I know what you mean, because I go through baking and cooking for a 3 day yom tov every year. But after you finish cooking a and baking and the candles are lit, the food is served, and people take portions and they compliment you on your fabulous cooking. I love getting compliments. It means your work paid off. Sukkos is my favorite yom tov by far!!October 9, 2011 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1007823
Sukkos is HEAVNE!!!! I LOVE IT!!! So much action and fun!!October 9, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1007824
Do you mean that you don’t enjoy the actual process of the food preparation, only the result?
And how about all those hours of work preparing (for some people in the CR it’s been months!) and then in a relatively short time, it’s all gone?October 9, 2011 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #1007825
I guess the women are too busy cooking now to respond…October 9, 2011 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1007826
LOL!! I baked challah 2 day!!October 9, 2011 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1007827
I was stuck in bed with a sinus infection. spent maybe 30min in shul in total…..blahOctober 9, 2011 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #1007828
Mine was a little hard during the afternoon but the day seemed to fly by and the fast pretty much easy. Is that a good thing?October 9, 2011 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #1007829
My fast was ok, besides for my headache and dizzy spells;)
AYC: I absolutely LOVE to cook and bake. The preparation and all. And yes, I’ve been busy in the kitchen to answer you before! I enjoy working hard, and see others enjoying what I produced. The feeling in itself is rewarding!March 14, 2014 4:13 am at 4:13 am #1007830
B”H, although it ended an hour later than it would have last week 🙁March 14, 2014 4:35 am at 4:35 am #1007831
I did not fast so it went pretty smoothly.
