Dumb week ahead.

I go through phases where I am lonely and hope someone visits, but no one does or I want to sit in my house and suffer in silence and have no one visit, then everyone does. Last week was one of those weeks. I had intended to stay at home for the week and school in my pajamas all day, but it didn't happen that way. Everyone visited included the ones where when you see them at the door you ask in your head, why are you even here I haven't seen you for MONTHS?

This upcoming week is a busy one for everyone, especially my Mum who over committed herself to a cause that I'm not sure is going to benefit anyone but the hungry on Friday night. Quick trip to Auckland and back mid-week and I'll be very glad when it's Saturday.

Searched for something on YouTube to cheer me up tonight. I started with cats and cucumbers to drunk Russians fighting to Justins Biebers new album to NFL bad lip readings ending with Bindi Irwin dancing the tango.

It was a pretty fantastic tango I must say.

I'd love to wake up tomorrow and it be Saturday the 28th. It's a chips and salsa kinda night.

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!
