Lazy Tuesday.

Lazy Tuesday today. We stayed home most of the day bar a Primary Presentation practise at 6pm.
I hope it all comes together nicely because going by the last few practises, it's going to be very tragic. We have no support in Primary. It's hard to lead children when the adult to child ratio sucks. I'd like to change wards, but I love the people in my ward .. don't love that there aren't enough of us to hold an auxiliary together.

Eventually, Tyler will grow up and move out and then it will be just Hubba and I. On nights that Tyler stays away from home, I both miss and appreciate her absence.

A change is coming.
Looking forward to 2014.

My parents are heading to Auckland tomorrow. They have tickets to Cirque de Soleil. I went to see my Mum tonight and upon inspecting her cupboards, told her she forgot to do the shopping this week. She's my Pak n Save before I go to the real one. She's like a first line of defense and even though they're only going for 2 days, it will probably be a dumb 2 days for me. Love my Parentals. It's kinda like when I spend too much time with The Livians and then I come home and have some serious withdrawals and miss them all. It must be love because they drive me bongos the whole time I'm with them or when my younger brother comes for a visit and stays for 9 hours even though he lives 8 houses away .. or when my sister rings ten times a day for dumb things like, "Drayden-Reid just smiled", "Larell is a know-it-all" or "Listen to Jasiah sing but what does the fox say".

As much as I complain .. I'd miss the circus.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
