Sunday is Monday: Daily Look


July 13

That’s me this morning. I love my white jacket! The skirt is a very old one which I took out after ages!

I badly need some colorful shoes!


In the UAE, Sunday is Monday! And seriously in Ramadaan, the first day of the week is pure torture. The kids are on summer vacation and they tend to stay up still late. Both of them can’t sleep on their own, I have to sit and watch till they fall asleep. My  7 years old is getting better but the Princess still takes more than an hour to fall asleep. By the time, they are down it’s usually around mid night and then I have to be up for sahoor at 3:30 again! And guess what I rarely get any sleep between 12 and 3! Why? Coz of staying thirsty all day, I can’t help but keep on drinking water after Iftaar and when it’s time to go to bed, the loo keeps calling! Sigh. Same story repeats after Sahoor (The morning meal). Going back to sleep after Fajr (the morning prayers) at 4:30 isn’t that hard, but staying asleep is! And then the alarm rings at 7:30, I keep on snoozing it till 8:30 and am always late for work during Ramadaan!!!

My mom came over last month, because my babysitter quit without a notice and I had no one to watch the kids while I and DH were at work. I’m sad that the month has ended so soon, my mom leaves tomorrow morning. I’m going to miss her big time.

MiL will arrive the next day; At least that’s a solace, the kids won’t feel my mom’s absence too much. But I will. Don’t get me wrong. I love my MiL but having my own mother is totally different!! Sigh.
