Let's go to the movies, lets go see the stars!

I've been wanting to see that new movie about the apes. I was talking about it last week with Mitchy and said I'd go Tuesday (today) to see it by myself because I prefer it that way. She told me she was coming too and I quickly reminded her of Avi and her movie etiquette.

Hubs sat at the table and took it all in.

Found her in her room a few nights ago crying about something. She didn't want to tell me when I asked the first couple of times, but she finally told me that she didn't like the idea of me going to the movies by myself. It made her sad imagining me sitting in the movies eating popcorn watching apes all by myself.

Child, I'm dying to go to the movies without you.

I want to be able to eat popcorn and not think where your hands have been when you want to share with me because you spilled all yours all over the floor.
I want to drink from a clean straw and not share with you because you drank your whole cup before the movie even started.
I want to eat my own ice cream and not your ice cream that you've eaten all the chocolate off of and swapped.
I want to eat snicker pods without you asking me what is happening now in the movie.
I want to watch the movie without toilet breaks because you drank all your drink and mine.
I want to sit there on those velvet chairs knowing no one is going to ask me if we can go home now every ten minutes.

I simply want to watch what happens to those damn dirty apes.

Love you for loving me that much, but all Mama wants to do is go to a movie without you.

In other news ... didn't go to the movie.

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!
