Well, since I was at home before 7 pm as opposed to after 9 pm (since I had no class), I was able to start packing early as our flight left Trinidad at 6:30 am. Of course, I *didn’t* start packing early.
I was…tired…but didn’t sleep because I had to pack.
We woke up at 2:45 am (well I woke dad up…did I sleep?? no) so as to leave at 3:45. We intended to eat Suhur in the car on the way (which is when we would normally be eating Suhur) and then check-in and then after check-in pray Fajr salah. This all went as planned.

I really think sleeping through the fast is sort of pointless because…you’re just sleeping, not fasting but hey, what you gonna do? :-)
I broke this fast at work waiting on dad to pick me up once again…earlier than expected…!

When dad got the news on Tuesday he just didn’t have his afternoon full time class and decided to come straight home. One of the grad students/assistant lecturers called all his M.Sc. students to say no class in the evening.
We decided mom would leave on Wednesday and we’d come on Thursday thus I would cancel my Thursday afternoon class and Saturday morning class.
