Every night my mother-in-law goes walking with her neighbor. Maggie took an exceptionally late nap today, so it was decided that she should go with on the walk tonight, too.
Having dinner alone with Gary was only about ten million times better than I thought it would be. It was amazing to have a conversation that consisted of more than, "Do you want more [blank]?" "Do you want more water?" "More?" "MORE??" "What DO you want?" "DON'T YOU THROW THAT ON THE FLOOR!!"
Granted, I love having dinner together as a family. I love how our meals our filled with laughter at the funny things Maggie does.
Sometimes it's just nice to remember how to talk to each other.
