Into Term 3

The two week holidays weren't a holiday. Livian and Shaily did nearly 100 hours at work between them and I did 75, which is 5 off my normal bi-weekly. It wasn't a holiday afterall.

Sisters kids came down for the second week. That week was also spent at work, where they all learned to appreciate the college campus. On Tuesday night their Nan treated them to the movies. I went along because I do like the Jurassic Park/World movies. Before the movie even began, Hubs was having breathing problems. I thought she had choked on some popcorn a few minutes earlier because I had told her off for eating it before we were even in the movie theater. Turned out she was having an asthma attack. Her lips went blue and everything and it was a long 1km trip to the ER. She was very scared and I did my best not to panic and say swear words at the slow cars. They took her immediately and ventilated her for 30 minutes before she turned her normal color.

Diagnosis was asthma onset by allergies. It's happened before and was worse last time for an allergic reaction, but worse this time respiratory wise.

So back to work tomorrow. I tried to take the day off because I haven't seen my Stiddy boy all week and wanted him tomorrow, but I have to go to work because the boss lady said so.

It's OK though .. I love that place.
Gotta stop eating their food though .. if I'm to look like Beyonce by summer, I need to befriend salad again.

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!
