I quit my job this week. Effective immediately. I use to love my job, until I was micro managed and bullied. It was not an easy decision, but it was the best decision. I have been going  through the motions and have been waiting to feel regretful, but that wave hasn’t come yet and I don’t think it will. Under the current circumstances of that particular place of employment, it is not a place to progress. It is quite toxic.

After 17 years there, my Mum resigned too. 

The scary part is wondering what to do next. It has to work with Hubs because I’ve spent the last few years missing out on time with her because of work. We pretty much woke up, went to school and work, came home, spent an hour together before it was time to go to bed. 

I have a few things up my sleeve. I’m expecting issues with that work place for not giving 4 weeks notice as my contract said, but that hasn’t come yet.

I have more to look forward to now that I’m not a robot for that place. I’m just not sure what exactly I’m looking forward to yet.

I am scared, but I am relieved.

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!
