Not so fast sunday...

This morning was fast sunday for our ward, because general conference is next week. John woke up before me though, and without even thinking he helped himself to some cereal and a couple of pieces of pizza for breakfast. When I finally rolled out of bed I told him I wasn't eating b/c it was fast sunday- he felt terrible! He just kept saying over and over again how bad he felt about missing fast sunday. In the meantime, I was just trying to make it through the day. I'm a little embarassed to say that I am not exactly the world's most pleasant faster, but I was determined to stick it out. We made it to sacrament meeting only to hear the bishop announce that the week after conference would be fast sunday for our ward. Boy, did I feel stupid... and hungry!

Our ward always does it the week after General Conference also so there are not two fasts in one month. As tiny as you are Rissa, I think this fast should count for the one in two weeks!

Our ward had fast Sunday this week, and Gerald did a stand up job. I have a great secret for you-- having a baby gets you out of fasting for a while, you can't fast when you are pregnant and you can't fast when you are breastfeeding. Not the best reason for having a baby, nor does it really compensate for the other struggles, but it is a perk! (P.S. thanks for updating your blog-- I'm a dork!)
