Day 70

You've been on my mind the last few days. That happens when I have too much time on my hands. I get an overflow of memories of your last 2 days and it's like a dagger to my being all over again.


So tonight when the baby fell asleep in her bed all by herself .. I left her there for an hour before I put her back in my bed for the night.

It helps.
It's not a good solution, I know this, but it helps.

Speaking of depression .. the All Black Sevens lost to Kenya. KENYA. I have to commend Kenya though, they've always been great at running, but their ball handling skills were perfection at it's best and the ABs really did deserve to come off second in that game. I applaude coach Mike Friday for that one. Unfortunately, Kenya lost to England in the finals. If only that ref called the knock-on in the 5 minutes extra time. Bastard.

Superbowl on Monday.
I'd love to stay home and watch it, but I'm supposed to be travelling to Auckland that day ... unless ... (winks at sister).

Speaking of sister ... 7 missed Facetime calls on my recents list just today.
There's something wrong with you.

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!
