The restructure

After a lengthy process for our work restructure, it was over yesterday. Last week in particular was one of the hardest for a variety of reasons here at work and I don’t think I’d ever needed God so much. I unknowingly passed my stress and worry on to Hubs who also felt the pull.

I reapplied for my job, which has had a major job description overhaul. My confidence in being successful was 1% because of events that led up to that day. Everyone was interviewed on Thursday & Friday. I prepared myself over the week, but I wasn’t going to fight for the job. I was the last interview of the day on Friday. It  was a 45 minute interview. Others had 10 minute interviews.

Now I’m not blowing smoke out of my own butt, but I know I’m too talented for this place and the three panelists knew this too. By Saturday I was over feeling ill about it all and had a wedding to shoot. I forgot about it for that day. By Sunday I was ready to walk away from my work place.

My application was successful, but we have lost two of our co-workers in the process. I know I interviewed well. I went in there to show them why I had already earned my job, not to beg for it.

The bride is Tyler’s best friend. 
They were each others Maid of Honor. 
... but isn’t that page boy the most handsome ever!?

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!
