About Me

Zootsuitmama was my shopname, but I closed it a while back. Now I have entered a magic timemachine and live in a time warp of vintage and retro ... Join me.

Why do I always get the urge to watch "Twister" when the weather's like this? Well, I opted to be responsible and did homework instead. There is a really wonderful and fragrent breeze blowing in my window, and this is one of the things that I love about Spring. Stormy weather, like life bubbles up, then passes. Today my aunt came to live at the nursing home where I am a Social Worker. I never realized the emotions that would come up around this. I am grateful on one hand that I can be there for her, but on the other hand, real life makes ya feel things, and I always tried to numb myself in the past to this. But it's true what they say, when ya numb yourself to the bad, youre numbing yourself to the good stuff, too. So, I'll just keep on trying to be real through the sunshine and the storms.
Tonight, my battery died on the camera, and it's too late to run out and get some, so I thought I'd post some repeats, and some new Oriental goodies. Enjoy!

As hard as it is to watch your aunt struggle every day, you can also spend time with her every day. Just think about how happy you will make her! Maybe it will get easier for you as time goes on, too, and you can enjoy the time as well.
