Went shopping at a giant Asian supermarket and came home with a bunch of goodies for dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow.

Laurie:

It's a sick and sad feeling to lose a parent. After all, you have never known life without him until now. That feeling doesn't go away quickly. But it does go.

Your memories of your dad won't go away ever. Your dad will live on in you and your siblings because you are who you are in part because of him.

When I lost my mom, it was difficult for quite a while. Sometimes in a quiet moment months later, my eyes would fill with tears and my throat would close up with sadness a a stray thought popped into my head and triggered a memory. I came to see the pleasure in remembering her. I still spend time trying to recreate some of her recipes as a way of staying connected to her and my past. I'm pleased my younger daughter has shown an interest and made some things with me.

So hang in there and do what you have to do. There will be a lot going on in your mind and heart for a while. Just go with the flow. Things will take care of themselves.

It can be overwhelming. There are so many new and different things you see nowhere else. This place I go to is bigger than the supermarket I do my mainstream shopping in. It's a Korean market and has a food court, an entire kimchee section. All kinds of meats and animal parts, fish and fish parts.

I went ther to get some stuff to make Tom Yum soup and while I was there I bought a couple of more things as well. I f I had the energy and money, I could really go crazy.

What do you do for work? I spent 11 years on night shift, moved to days about a year and a half ago.
