.. and I thought work was bad.

I had arguments with two of my brothers today. The first one was for about 5 minutes while my Mum was outside in her room-of-requirement. It was very heated. Usually I sit on the sidelines and keep my mouth shut, but this one deserved my input when he started mouthing off about our mother. He started up about the ozone layer and eventually left defeated.

The second argument with another brother occurred a few hours later where he claimed I was judgemental for not attending church today, for no other reason than my ward sucks, totally forgetting that he's been absent from church for close to 6 months. It too got heated, but I shut down when I realized how much of a complete moron he is and there was no point wasting my breath and left him, at our mothers house, defeated.

For real.

If families have the potential to be together forever, why aren't we practicing what we preach so that we can justify the reason to be together forever. Why aren't we trying to avoid the opposition and instead strengthening each other?

... because people are entitled to be a-holes and I have two brothers who qualify without even trying.

Grateful today to have one sibling who is normal ... more or less.

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!
