Grief in a Shopping Cart

My mother passed away unexpectedly in January. I'm not ready to discuss that just yet, but I wanted to share with you some odd happenings during my grieving process. I find myself skipping parties and sitting in empty parking lots with 3 lb bags of gummi bears for company.
