maybe this is weird but I am used to fasting now.... and really even when it is time to break the fast I don't have a taste for anything.... Rachid makes me eat more but I only have about 2 hours to pray, eat, and spend time with Rachid before I have to go to sleep and wake up to do it all again.... work, work, work.... I need a vacation... :wacko:

Two Hearts, Two Different Places, Sharing One Dream

We were strangers~ Starting out on a journey~Never dreaming What we'd have to go through ~Now here we are ~ And I'm suddenly standing ~ At the beginning with you ~ No one told me I was going to find you ~ Unexpected ~ What you did to my heart ~ When I lost hope You were there to remind me ~ This is the start ~ Life is a road And I want to keep going ~ Love is a river I wanna keep flowing ~ Life is a road Now and forever ~ Wonderful journey ~ I'll be there When the world stops turning~ I'll be there When the storm is through ~ In the end I wanna be standing At the beginning with you~

I think that's exactly the purpose. If you don't miss it, it's not a sacrifice. As Rahma said, it makes you appreciate what you have. :luv:

Yup and compassion for those who do not.

A good friend of mine went on a 4 day fast this summer. She asked me to "eat & drink for her" by thinking of her while I was eating and drinking, and that her spirit would receive the sustenance.

I would drink chai for you today (and some water, too). :)

I think cravings are uncontrollable. I also think that working all day and fasting is harder and BETTER than sleeping all day and waking up to eat. :thumbs:

Jean, I know how you feel... I crave hot tea and I can't waite to have some when iftar comes...I appreciate eating and drinking much more during this time and think of those who for different reasons don't have the luxury of always getting a meal or getting very little. I pray for them at iftar time.

You will be rewarded... :yes::yes:

What does SO stand for?

I called to DOS yesterday and they were willing to give me a tiny bit of info. The fingerprints were sent to the DOS, but that is not the hold up rather just the process of the security checks. The person didn't comment on the length that it might still take but acknowledged that yes cases can take many, many months. They felt if the passport was needed back for purposes of work that the embassy should have no difficulty in returning it. When I said that currently my fiance is unemployed and seeking work and may receive a 3-6 month contract on sea they suggested that he stay near. I feel a little bettter knowing that the hold up is security checks but my fiance still has no idea what to do about his work situation. He needs to work, but if he gets a job what happens if the embassy wants him to come it. I WISH they just had the ability to say well at minimum it will be 2 months, but may take up to 5+ or we think it will be decided upon within the next 3 months. Has anyone ever gotten any sense of a time line from DOS?

I think cravings are uncontrollable. I also think that working all day and fasting is harder and BETTER than sleeping all day and waking up to eat. :thumbs:

Thats exactly what I think. What benefits are you getting when you aren't really sacrificing anything?


'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'
