I had a big biology exam yesterday that took up alot of time last week. Most of the study was spent stressing out because there was alot more to do than study for the exam. I felt ok with the exam after doing it (2.5 hours later), then remembered later during the day that I hadn't completed a diagram about the flow of blood through the heart. It stressed me out for the rest of the day up until I decided that there was nothing I could do about it.

Got my passing grade tonight. I'm happy with it.
10 papers down, 2 to go.

The last paper is Ethics in the health care system and it's worse than the math.The 5th intake for the next set of 10 papers began yesterday. All will be well.

Took the time out on Saturday to watch the Under 17s play the Flax Falcons. The game was called because of fighting, but PA won. It's really all that matters.

Appointment on Thursday for another flush for Larrys catheter aswell as training for PD.
I'm looking forward to being able to count down the days when he'll finally be home all day every day.

Daylight savings occured over the weekend for NZ. We sprang forward .. I do hate daylight savings.

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!
