I panicked when I saw 9.59am this morning as I woke up. HOLY MOLY I OVERSLEPT. LET’S GET TO WORK. Then I turn over and looked at Dean, peacefully sleeping too. The sun was shining beautifully, the birds were chirping, and the trees outside my window were swaying left and right softly.

This feels like a Saturday, actually. Is it really Saturday??

I checked my phone and rubbed my eyes because I couldn’t believe it.

Saturday.

SA-TURRRRRR-DAY.

Such a beautiful word, Masyaallah.

I close my eyes again and pat myself to continue sleeping, telling myself softly “You deserve a few more minutes of snooze time, go on…” After what seemed like the craziest period of FV ever, I really have been waiting for this break. Today marks the beginning of a lonngggg holiday for the whole team and I’m already looking forward to rest, rest and more rest! Ahhh, Saturday, thank you for being here.

I snuggled my pillow closer since I haven’t felt the proper bond with my pillow this whole month. Slowlyyyyy my thoughts clear up and fade as I fall asleep again —

“Ba.. Ga… Ge… Ba… BAAAAA!!!” 

I get smacked in the face with Daniel’s toothbrush.

I squint my eye and before me was my beautiful son, smiling with his dimples showing. “Baaaaaa???”

Ok, I’m up, I’m up..

*Happy holiday to everyone, Muslims and non-Muslims. Note to single people without children, sleep in as much as you can now.
