Tisha baav and working

I’m pretty happy the 3 weeks are almost over. Despite me not really holding back on much, due to the fact that I shaved and have listened to some music for 3 weeks (although very little during the 9 days though), but now I can go back to eating meat and listen to music guilt free. Also, now I can plan my rest of the summer activities, although there really isn’t much planned as of now.
But, what sucks when the 3 weeks end, it concludes with a major fast. I’m ok with fasting sometimes, I don’t enjoy it obviously, but it’s doable, which reminds me, some people have asked me if I am working on Tisha baav, and I keep on answering them yes. The simple reason is because I know if I don’t work, ill be sitting on my ass all day watching TV. So to me, working is more productive and more spiritual than watching oprah in the afternoon. I know many of the frummie people will tell me, go to a speech or something instead of watching TV. I know myself pretty well, that is not happening. I had my share my depressing speeches about the beis hamikdash back in the camp days. Those days are long gone. Nowadays, watching my coworkers eat their big Macs on tisha baav is enough pain and suffering for me to remind me of the destruction.

Jacob Da Jew said...

I hear ya. I usually sleep, tidy up da joint and maybe learn a bit of Gemara with da rabbi.

Some frummie lady tells my manager:

"Have an easy and meaningful fast"

He's like: "what meaningful?" I'm fasting!

Lance said...

The fast seems go by faster--no pun intended--when a work for some reason. Plus, it's already really hard to take off time for all the holidays, especially this year.

Notsofrummie said...

flatbush gal - ill rather be uck at work than uck at home. like lance says, time flies a lot faster at work. Maybe i just dont have that much uck when i fast

JDJ - i never got that either. All i can think about on a fast day is food, much less, about the destruction.

hope you had an ok fast.
keeping busy is good. however when friend rings up in the afternoon when the headache is kicking in asking cheerfully if i want to go out for a coffee now. um. how very thoughtful :P

frumhouse said...

I totally agree with you! Before I had kids, I actually did take off work and go to speeches and in the late afternoon, watch those sad movie marathons sponsored by local shuls. I suppose I did have more meaningful fasts thinking about all the sadness that has befallen the Jewish people and make my vows to buck up and try to bring about redemption.

These days, my husband usually works all day (he didn't get home until 15 minutes before the fast was over) and I am left to fend for myself, fasting with a pounding headache, with a houseful of rowdy kids (yes, I am talking about mine, not my neighbors!). What's meaningful about that? I would rather be at a nice quiet office working than be at home changing poopy diapers and fixing meals and snacks all day (talk about torture).

I spent all day just counting down to when the fast would be over. Somehow, I don't think that's supposed to be the point of it all..
