Still cute doe

My Christmas tree fell down for the 5th time this weekend. The first 4 times were because of Avilicious who just couldn't help herself and the last time, which was the worst time, was because of the wind.

Christmas is not completely over in Casa de Shultz, but the big tree came down with all the pretty decorations and will not be up again this Christmas. Also told Tyler to remind me not to put it up next year either because her minion will be 9 months and probably a no-ears tyrant.

We still have the other Christmas tree up and I strung lights, in 32°C weather, across half of my ranch slider.

I'm over Christmas and summer already.

Avi, who has been here since Thursday, went home with her other parents this afternoon. I miss her already, but I'm looking forward to a sleep in and Hub's is looking forward to jumping ship into my bed for the rest of the holidays. Little does she know, I'm sleeping alone tonight.

I need it.
I've been sharing a bed with a helicopter since Thursday.

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!
