Time to go grocery shopping

We are back from our 11 day trip back east to visit family over the holidays.  Our fridge is empty except for some take-out boxes from our house-sitter.

It was a very sad trip - my mother passed away the day after I arrived.  I didn't cook a lick.  I ate a lot of bad food the first half (people bring food when someone dies, and it's not vegetables).  I mourned with my step-dad and siblings.  I got pampered by my mother-in-law during the second half.  My father died on Christmas Eve 4  years ago, so I can officially say that the holidays sometimes really suck rocks.

And now it's back to the real world.

For sure Christmas isn't always a happy time. You are the third person I know, online or real world friend, going through a terribly difficult time during what is usually a happy celebration.

You and your Mother are in my heartfelt prayers.
