4 of 15 - Evening Edition.

Playing at home in the morning. Laundry. Karaoke. Prepping for town at Nans. The Park. Planning for Christmas. Wheel-chairing. Golf at The Parentals & home for Nan's venison stew.

Take note Furn's and Michelle. Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas menu's are out.
Simple this year, but tasty. Aunty Tashi also decided the Secret Santa will be done for Christmas Eve. We'll pull names at a FHE next month.

I'm less a kid again tonight. He's the one that torments Rome under his breath when he thinks no one can hear. Everyone is made aware of it when Rome's distress calls begin. That's when big sister lays some threats. All I can do is roll my eyes because it always happens in the car when we're driving somewhere.

Good day today. MDO religion tomorrow. The kids are going to spend the day with their Aunty. She didn't look too keen when I asked her if she was ready for five kids. The baby girls are asleep. There's a drunken party next door. I was warned about it a month ago and I'm appreciative that my neighbors have the courtesy to advise ahead re: stuff like that. It makes the vibration of my house more bearable.

Mitchy has neglected her children today via correspondence. I imagine she and Freckles are living it up in Bangkok! Brother 1 keeps ringing.

Just ringing to see if the kids are alright.
And what if they weren't?
Shut up. I'm just asking.
For real, what would you do if they weren't alright?
Shut up you son of a bee sting.

35 21 and 38 and still talking like we're teenagers. Told my Mum today that I would have been a great mother of five.
In the same breath I thanked Heavenly Father that I wasn't.

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!
