It's only four-thirty in the morning but I've already taken a shower and got dressed. Mang Bert will pick me up here at home at four thirty, because our flight to El Nido Palawan was at exactly five o'clock.
Sunny was still sleeping soundly in our room next to Grace. Before I got up at three in the morning, I put Grace next to Sunny.
I just arranged the things I'm going to bring last night so I'm checking it again carefully today because I might have left something behind.
I was carrying a large brown suitcase. The suitcase was full of clothes I would need for work. I also brought my replacement when it was not work hours.
After I checked that my equipment was complete and I hadn't forgotten anything, I rearranged it.
I approached my sleeping daughter, I gently kissed her forehead and cheek. I didn't want to wake her up because I might suddenly change my mind and not continue to leave. But if I do that I will lose my job, for sure.
