If you have read this week's blog entries, you already know that this has been a rough week. I was more than ready for a slow-paced Saturday and had just that. I enjoyed working on lesson plans, walking the trail behind my house with my step-daughter, and spending time with my husband. The highlight of the day was definitely dinner.
My husband and I decided to treat his girls to dinner at a locally-owned restaurant. We were seated quickly and promptly engaged in lighthearted conversation. I don't even really remember what we talked about, just that we laughed...a lot. Great big belly-laughs that start with a loud burst and then dissolve in silent shoulder-shaking and teary-eyed pointing and mimicking whatever was funny, the big inhale followed by a steady rhythm of laughs that taper off into giggles. I'm sure other patrons of the restaurant were entertained by the goings-on at our table. After all, laughter is contagious, right?
