Last Days of Ramadan

Just a few more days of fasting left to go – though I will have to make up about 12 days. I’m going to be honest, this is rough. I am falling over with sleep at work. It will be nice to once again be allowed to drink caffeine during the day, I’m sure it would help! The funny thing is that it is not even the food I miss so much as sleep. One has to wake up in the morning to eat breakfast and say prayers. And even though I manage to do the whole thing in ½ hour, its still an interruption of sleep and I’m dragging during the day.

I wonder also if this lack of food has made me less patient to deal with people. Right now, typing this at work and one of the guys is boosting about all his travels, oh joy, a braggart, than I also have snarky people in my life. How does one deal with a snarky person - someone making sarcastic comments under their breath, etc?

Breaking news – Crown princess Victoria of Sweden is expecting her first child! Babies, babies everywhere!

I feel sure the lack of food is making you irritable - that happens with a blood sugar drop.

Best to ignore the snarky person, I think.

Lack of sleep can make it difficult to cope with all sorts of daily dealings - like snarky people. Seems we all lose patience when we lose sleep! Soon it will be over, and hopefully you can catch up!! BTW - ok with hurricane - power outages everywhere, but I'm fine. :-)

Hopefully Princess Victoria will have a Prince. So pack your bags and get your Gorgeous daughter to Sweden, before some Swedish Blonde gets him.
