How to be optimistic.

The Doctors appointment was as expected. All is well. Progress is good. If it weren't for the fact that the Doctor wanted to see Larry's ankles, it would have been 100% a pointless trip that cost $200 in fuel alone because NZ gas is now $2 a liter ($6USD a gallon), so the trip was only 98% a waste of time and money.

A check up eye appointment tomorrow to see if Larry's eye pressure has gone down after a week of being off of the Maxidex eye drops. A GP appointment for a mini medical after it. It's been a busy week.

His overall health is great. His overall psyche? Better than great. He's not comatose anymore. He can get around. He even braved the kitchen and cooked himself a meal a few nights ago, bacon and eggs. Bless his blind eyes, the 'bacon' was sandwich ham, but that's a start.

Be optimistic, don't you be a grumpy
When the road gets bumpy
Just smile, smile, smile and be happy.

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!
