Work After Long Break!

So Eid break was long enough (or not) for me to relax. I went to a spa twice (guilty) and spent most of the time with my family… I also got to see few friends here and there during the break. Most of my family members were gone during this break (either to Haj or tourism) so it was quite quiet… and Eid was not the same without them! We also did not do our Eid rituals which includes lunch out at our usual restaurant during Eid. I missed that, and I went through sometimes where I missed them and hoped I traveled along with them…. Good thing is I got all kinda nice goodies from them as gifts (sogha) when they got back... heehee.

So last night we were united with the rest of the family. Some arrived early in the evening, others arrived at almost midnight…. So I stayed up till around 1:20ish with them and then online till after 2:00am… I slept like a baby and forgot to reset my recurrent alaram (which I set off during Eid break) and woke up at 7:15am to realize “IT’S SUNDAY” and jumped outta bed like crazy and was on my way to work by 8:00! I even grabbed a granola bar to munch on instead of having breakfast… then received an SMS from a co-worker saying “Starbucks?” and since its this time of the year (Holidays Season) I had a sudden urge for a toffee nut latte… that was just awesome cuz I was having the worst headache ever!

Right now I am sitting on my desk, enjoying a toffee nut latte (thanks to A :-*) and thinking of new year’s break :-P
